From memory you can just run that interrogator by itself. It's the last package in the list in the autoinstall.lst. You can just edit that to run only the final package and see if it kicks out the XML then.
Don't know how to open these files. Any harm in just reinstalling the whole package?

None. It’ll skip over everything that’s already installed anyway.

Currently on the Ex
3.4 Build 19274

I plugged in the usb (used for updating the focus and escape before) and it "failed". Then when I plugged it in again, it just said update will install when the car starts again...weird.

New file downloaded from ford:
5U5T-14G381-EK

EDIT: Just noticed this said to format to exfat which is new for sync 3 this gen? It was always fat32 before.

Trying again

I downloaded the update to my USB drive as the WiFi OTA loading progression bar on the Sync 3 screen hasn't changed in over a week. Sitting at 50%. Now I just need a 30 minute drive to load it into the vehicle. :)

Same error.

If I unplug and plug back in I get the 2nd pic saying it will install when the car restarts.

The 2nd screen usually comes up after a successful installation. Have you restarted the vehicle and checked the latest version number?

Using a Mac by chance? The second pop-up is because it failed the first time and it sees the same install so it’s immediately “done”.

yes, still old.

Yes, using a mac. Should I use the 3rd party software to format?


EDIT:
Found this method to format/create. Just finished transferring. I'll go test shortly. This method uses the terminal to format the usb, then also terminal to extract the zip to the usb


EDIT 2:
Ex is currently updating via the method from Edit 1. Same usb stick. well....it is just sitting at "updating" at the top banner, so I'll let it sit 30min.

Mine failed on the first try after downloading from my Mac, then dowloaded from a PC that I have, and the update installed. It created the log file which I then uploading on the Ford Sync Update web site.

Update successful. Sync about shows the new build.

I'll have to remember the manual method listed above for all mac things.. In the pinball updates it is also an issue with fat32 and macs etc.

Keep in mind when you start this update on your vehicle it is going to take 25-30 minutes to complete.

I have a usb saved just for updates. I formatted it on a PC I think and build manually in the Mac.

Ya, that’s how the stick was when I did the focus rs, escape and f150. However it was fat32 🤷 all working now!

I am wondering what the update did, I really don't see any dramatic changes so far.

The audio side looks better. I wonder if the Bluetooth functionality was improved as it was sucking bad. Favorite phone wouldn’t be priority etc

I guess I need to snoop around and see what’s different.

Didn’t notice much from 20237.

It's possible they haven't switched it on for MY21 programs as of yet.
