Does anyone know of a jailbreak for the 2018 Infotainment system that allows you to play youtube videos or movies? I've seen one on youtube but its not an accord or 2018 version.

You may want to check your local and state laws before doing this if a hack is available... some localities/states prohibit the operation of DVD's in the front of vehicles when they are in motion... I would think that law would also apply to watching any type of video.

Personally I wouldnt do it. Although I would hack it if it were possible to put WAZE/Google Maps and Pandora on the head unit eliminating the need for Android Auto.
I mean, I would get a little ticked off if someone told me not to circumvent something that I own.

This was not directed at any members of this forum. Just saying....

Unless of course your family is in the car he hits when he is watching a cat video on YouTube.. Then it is your concern.. Isn't it?

Lol calm down everyone
Never did he/she mention that they want to use it while driving. What if they are in a parking lot? They can watch something while waiting on a friend or whatever.

There are so many distractions these days. Your phone is one too. Just be smart and drive carefully.

If the “hack” lets you use it while driving well I hope you’re smart enough to not do it.

I’ve been looking for this for a while now. From what I’ve found so far, it seems Honda stepped it up with the OS and the hardware on the accord. There’s a method to gain root access (hack) just about every other 2018 model, but not the accord. There’s an XDM forum where people seem to making slow progress, but nothing is substance yet. I’ll post something if I eventually find anything solid.

And to all those immediately assuming the hack is so that we can watch Videos while driving, and going as far as connecting it with a car accident involving someone’s family, that’s uncalled for. I have a 2 year old and 3 year old that hate road trips longer than 10 minutes and nothing calms them down faster than the hour long loops of children’s videos on YouTube. Giving my phone to them is an option, however, you try telling 2 toddlers to share a 5” video screen across a back seat. Having the option to play the video on a 10” screen that they can both see would be a godsend.

You will have another dilemma to deal w/now... which one of them gets to ride shotgun or the middle back seat so they can see it now (joking). :grin: :grin:

Use jailbroken iPhone and install Carbridge. Then you can run all your iPhone apps on 2018 Accord infotainment screen.

Jailbreak solution is available for iOS version till 11.3.1. You can't jailbreak IOS 12

Need to purchase ($4) Carbridge on Cydia

Anyone say How to Turn Off the Annoying Acknowledgement Screen about Driving & Using the System , Like I need to OK this 24 Times a Week , Really - How about Once a Month or Every 3 Months ..
It will timeout... no need to hit "ok"... just wait and it goes away. I ignore it when it comes on/pops up as whatever I was last playing/doing on the infotainment center will return when it timesout.

I'm Like - Where's *** Back Up Camera , as I want to be Gone !

Still Thou , Were Not Idiots . .
True, we aren't. My guess it's a liability issue... as long as they have this displayed (whether we read it or not) it releases them from any liability of an accident if driver is fooling w/it why vehicle is in motion. Heck... now I'm going to have to read it the next time I'm in the vehicle to see what it actually says. :grin:
