    Reprogamming a Skoda RNS510 to a VW RNS510

    I have an R32 mk5 with a RNS510 install (with DAB, and Bluetooth modules) but the RNS 510 recently died (I believe the fault is on the tuner board) so I got a replacement on ebay which was cheaper than having it repaired, the replacement is working perfectly, but since it is from a Skoda I note the following:

    1: Skoda splash screen on start up
    2: Green back light to buttons

    Are either of these programmable via a firmware change to VW?

    Another idea, since I stall have the old dead one, can I swap out the front panels, this would sort out the LED colour and the mismatched font, but of course won't provide any firmware change from Skoda splash screen to VW. Is it easy to remove a complete fitted unit, and then remove the front fascia and replace?

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
