Are all mods available for free?
Yes, all the mods available on F-Mods 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 and if possible a shell script to install it from a QNX VM. This avoids any Copyright issues with Ford Motor Company.
Does your mods contains Ford Motor Company Copyrighted code?
No, our mods contains 100% custom code. We will not provide any FoMoCo file.
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) or if you use the reformat utility you will lose the ability to install mods through USB, but the community developed two special packages that can be used to maintain the Daemon. 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 F-Mods?
All mods can be installed directly from USB, but before being able to do that you have Jailbreak your Sync 3.
Additionally, any F-Mods package 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 ripoff 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.
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.
