Very suitable method to restore BMW ICOM Next A… Here you go… Just open it and press reset button when 12v applied; don’t need to use any other restore with icom next..
So, which is reset button for the ICOM NEXT?
Just look at a small hole next to usb port .
In the picture above, what is marked in red is the RESET BUTTON
There is also a button under the white tab on the opposite side
Use usb 3.0 flash drive and then hold white button to solve!!
If it doesn’t work also, here is the ultimate solution.
Please download this
(Password for archive is well known)
Extract it and put this on a fresh formatted (FAT32) USB stick
Put the stick in your ICOM NEXT, push and hold the button while you plug ICOM to a well charged car
Hold the button for at least 4-5 seconds
Now release the button and push it again 3 times within 5 seconds
Update should start
Please be patient. (wait about 5-7 minutes to finish the update)
After all is done, 4 RED LEDs will be on
Do NOT unplug ICOM. WAIT! After some time all LEDs will turn off
Now you can unplug ICOM, remove USB and plug it back to car again.
Everything should work now.
