ITP / MOST security – and it’s removal!

So, Volvo kindly added security to the infotainment system on certain models so that you can not swap in donor hardware.

Certain markets this security is off by default , usually USA, but you can use Vida (any vida) to check if its on or off.

On P1 and P2 Models this is called MOST security (Media-Oriented Systems Transport) also know as SOM (Security on most, or “Security on Media-Oriented Systems Transport” ) .

On P3 its called ITP (Infotainment Theft Protection).

Essentially if you swap in any part of the infotainment system from donor hardware to replace a dead part or to make an upgrade, the system turns itself off after a few seconds.

So which models have it and how can we bypass it.

P1 – All models!

P2 – XC90

P3 – All models!

Here is a list of the software part numbers that you would use to switch it off with a genuine Vida Subscription.

SW P/N to turn ITP/SOM OFF:
P1 C70 30667249 NO LONGER AVAIALBE!!
P1 C30 30667249 NO LONGER AVAIALBE!!
P1 S40 30667249 NO LONGER AVAIALBE!!
P1 V50 30667249 NO LONGER AVAIALBE!!
P3 V70 30786292
P3 XC70 30786292
P3 S80 30786292
P2 XC90 8696093 NO LONGER AVAIALBE!!
P3 XC60 31268617
P3 S60 31268617
P3 V60 31268617
P3 V40 31382168

So, as you can See Volvo have F***KD P1 and P2 XC90 owners in the A** . The only way Volvo can help now is to sell you NEW parts and install them into the car. Which would be more than the value of most P1 or P2 cars. #megadicks

But all is not lost, there are always ways. So lets break down some of them.

P1 & P2 MOST delete

P1 and P2 , Certain reloads with VIDA reveal critical information like CEM and immobilizer pin codes. The IMMOB pin is required for programs like VDASH to be able to turn off MOST security.

Car electronics experts can read this information form the car’s modules on the bench. But thats above most peoples abilities. Defiantly mine!

So, the easy route is to get In touch with a Vdash Pro like myself to help get the immob pin , so we can feed it into Vdash then Vdash can do the MOST off.

Consult the dealer map to find one local to you. https://d5t5.com/partners

P3 ITP off (Excluding V40)

On P3 platform cars (excluding V40’s) , Vdash or ModUnlock can decode the CEM pin code, from there Vdash can decode the immobilizer pin. With the immobiliser pin Vdash can disable the ITP security. Wooo!

Of course, you can ask a main dealer, independent or Vdash pro to use VIDA to do the Job.

P3 ITP off – V40’s

This is the same as P1&P2 platform. Unfortunately, It is NOT possible to calculate the immobiliser pin code form the CEM pin.

So we have to do a module reload that has the immob PIN to capture it. then we can feed it into Vdash to do a ITP off. Such as CEM reload, ECM reload.

So, the easy route is to get In touch with a Vdash Pro like myself to help get the immob pin , so we can feed it into Vdash then Vdash can do the MOST off.

  1. To retrieve the CEM Pin do I need to drive to your partners or can i just send my CEM to them, and then wait? I really am serious about sorting this issue out for my car, I just hope I can get it done asap, thanks in advance and my sincerest regards Nahidul Miah

  2. So I own a 2006 D5 C70, and am planning on doing the DynAudio Retrofit, I have brought all the components needed to do the upgrade, all came out of the one car, all 13 speakers, both amps, and both cross-overs. I also got the head-unit/6 Disc CD player. The only item I didn’t get was ICM (the display screen) So when I took delivery of the kit i noticed that the head unit must of been replaced at one time or another, because there was writing stating which vehicle it came out of, because it was a replacement for a faulty item. But as far as i’m aware all had been running and working fine in the Donner car. The donner car, was the same age as mine, but it was a T5 it was even the same rare colour of Blackcurrant Pearl, thats what spurred me on to buy the kit from this particular car. So I was thinking that literally, my only obstacle would be the MOST issue, but after reading this I’m hoping all is not lost, I have brought a laptop with Vida installed, but i’m guessing my Vida because its not original and subscribed, will not be able to retrieve the CEM and Immobilizer Pin. So I am hoping that you will be able to help me get these. But what do I need to do to help get them, shall i remove my CEM and send it to you guys so you can retrieve them for me, and how much does this service cost? or do i have it wrong and my Vida will be able to do it? Please help me to understand, I am craving my DynAudio asap. Regards N Miah
