    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    FYI. Four weeks ago I got my 6yo 12V battery replaced, my local SvC immediately followed up by a phone call saying a 12V replacement in their system triggered a ticket to suggest the affected owner request an eMMC recall service so that they can start ordering parts. I did submit the request in...

    [V9] How to Format USB into 2 Partitions for DashCam and Music [Windows]

    Most USB-interfaced portable SSDs and thumb drives are spec'd with a 0~60C operating temperature including the Samsung T7/T5. People think 0~60C (32F~140F) is well enough for an environment where a human is also operating a computer, and the human operator or the host computer electronics might...

    What if FSD doesn't materialize?

    Can't wait to see HW4 if it's still on schedule. We had Autonomy Day 2019 for HW3. Has anyone had any rumors about Autonomy Day 2021?

    HW4 computer mass production in Q4 2021

    Can be anything, or they can use multiple HW4 dies to make HW5 chips. :-)

    HW4 computer mass production in Q4 2021

    Per TSMC, CoWoS is Chip-on-Wafer-on-Substrate. The "chip" there typically is consists of multiple silicons or multiple dies of different sources. The "wafer" is an interposer, aka an RDL (redistribution layer), or a miniature single-or-multiple-layer PCB made with semiconductor process to...

    Autonomous Car Progress

    I dug out some more... 10/10/14 Bloomberg interview: "And so I think from the point at which true autonomous driving is possible which I now think is probably the five or six year timeframe. I thought was more like 10 years. But based on the rate of improvement that I'm seeing and the progress...

    Here is what I observed in my neighborhood. In Cupertino, constructions for single family housing rebuild and commercial buildings didn't really stop--they paused for the first couple weeks or so, then they resumed with a maybe 60% workforce. I noticed 3 houses even managed to complete and...

    FYI a different narrative: What's Herd Immunity, and How Does It Protect Us? Not sure about Covid's vaccination candidates at this point, maybe only some of us can enjoy them.

    https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp2015897 False negative could be even more harmful as the sense of security makes the spread more penetrable. This is why some countries currently are still against testing the public before the one-off tests are accurate enough.

    How long does a Powerwall support a home during a power outage?

    We've never really noticed any outage. Garage door operates as normal. We also added a couple small UPSs over computer devices and internet infrastructures to remove the last bit of data/comms errors. With solar to replenish the battery on a daily basis, the utility is our backup.

    [Resolved on Day 15] New Solar/PW only ran for 5 days - TESLA completely non-responsive

    Just saw this thread. To OP, I had these things happened to me once before, in my 3rd year ownership of Tesla PV and PW2 (both installed by Tesla/SolarCity). The symptom was no solar generation and no charging of PW, and IIRC there was an error message like "ARC FAULT" in the inverter's...

    Summon seems like a silly party trick to me

    Yesterday I ran past a summoning 3 knowing it would stop, so the car stopped and I heard a human yell from somewhere. It seemed to me I have hurt her child in a parking lot.

    Enhanced Summon coming (Elon tweet 6 Apr, 2019)

    Other drivers should start paying attention on nearby Teslas--these Teslas are slow, sneaky, and quiet (no honking no yelling), they don't move backward once forward, they don't use back up lights, and the cars might have no dumb drivers in them. /s

    Do you intentionally park next to other Teslas?

    Always, even with my ICE cars.

    Another safety feature is to park at crossed marking. I am sure it will also park at fire lanes, since no other cars will be there (except Tesla).

    Wait till Tesla finish debugging the phantom braking issues, or at least start displaying any perceived obstacle or overpass in the console.

    Do we think using EAP/youtubers to do the testing is going to work? I hope they define test cases and criteria, and allocate them and track them with TBC. Never mind!

    Browser to Support YouTube

    "It will enable video when parked & connected to WiFi. All Tesla Superchargers will have free WiFi over time." That's the idea. We just need to find a use case. Elon Musk on Twitter

    Did the youtuber remove some shopping carts, piles of s*#@, or cups of p*#@ before using this feature?

    FSD Computer Upgrade and Experience

    "Upgradable to full self-driving capability with Tesla FSD computer" I believe this could mean to upgrade everyone directly to HW4 and when that happens some time in Q4 2021, existing HW3 fleet will have the priority.

    Is the model 3 too common now?

    Besides wrapping the cars for customization, Tesla should refresh the Model 3 design more often, like every 3 months. :-p

    HW2.5 even after April 12th build date

    Until someone really does a teardown on a HW3 unit and Tesla starts releasing differentiating FSD features, you cannot say that "HW3" is better than HW2.5--maybe APH4 now comes with both nVidia and Tesla chips, and APH5 will be native. Yup, I have no idea.

    Music on USBs

    IIRC last year when my car received its first 9.0 update, it couldn't find any music files (FLAC, MP3) on my Samsung Fit Plus 256GB. However my Windows laptop was able to see all the files and play them, so I guess maybe some Tesla specific file/data structure was corrupted by the firmware or...
