Are all mods available for free?
Yes, all the mods available on FMods are free to download.
What do you provide?
The packages available on F-Mods are not a 'ready to use' .TAR.GZ. We provide the sources of the mods using a patch file (or .diff) that can be used by to apply the mod on Sync 3 files. This avoids any Copyright issues with Ford Motor Company.
Does your Sync 3 mods survive a factory reset and a software update?
Our mods will survive in case of a factory reset and hard reset. If you update the Sync 3 Build (the system) you will not lose the Jailbreak but you will have to reinstall the Daemon and the mods. If you use the Reformat utility package you will loseeverything, but, the community developed a custom Reformat package that can be used to maintain the Jailbreak. Maps, System Voices, Navigation Voices, FM/DAB Logo and Gracenotes can be updated without any special precaution.
How can I install the packages available on FMods?
All mods can be installed directly from USB after jailbreaking the Sync 3.
Additionally, any FMods mod require the Mods Tools package installed on your Sync 3.
The folder where you have to copy the mod must be called SyncMyMod (yeah, that's a SyncMyRide rip off lol) and it must contain an .sh script named autoinstall.sh which will be the executed file.
Why you are not using the "custom certificate" method to allow installation of custom mods?
We chose to not use that method for several reasons, but mainly because if Ford remove the second certificate from the system, everyone will be fucked and because by using our method there no need to sign packages :)
I developed a mod and i want to share it with the community, what should i do?
Are you associated with Ford?
NO! We are not associated with Ford and never will be. We are just a passionate group of people that love Ford cars and their potential. Beware that if your car is still under warranty customizing your Sync 3 (or any other module) may void part of or the entire warranty of your vehicle.
Your warranty is now VOIDED!
Ford diagnostic tools CANNOT detect if your APIM has been Jailbreaked and modded, but, technically you can consider your APIM warrantly, VOIDED.
Can i install the mods to my friends / customers?
Yes you can. Mods are free, so you can download them and do anything you want, but we have 3 rules:
1) NEVER ask money for the mods (it's not your work, so if you wanna get paid for other people work you go fuck yourself right now)
1) DO NOT host FMods packages on third party cloud services (Mega, GDrive etc)
2) ALWAYS give credits to FMods (if the developer is the A-TEAM) or to the author of the mod which is written in the mod page.
Will you release the your Jailbreak package?
Not currently planned
