    Hey guys,

    Firstly thanks for the patch! I’m having some trouble with it. I’m not able to switch to the wireless link for the Apples. It’s not giving me the choice to switch over from the Miracast.
    I’ve got the DDX9017DABS, and I’ve copied the checksums.mf5 and the S_V1_4_2008_2100 folder onto a new USB. It updated and all that, but once it was done when I press the Air Mirroring button it only gives me the Miracast option.

    Thanks for the help in advance, I’m DYING to use your patch. Cheers guys

    Is there a way to revert back to factory firmware once the patch is applied? I tried manufacturers recommendation to flash back to original firmware but files on USB not recognised…

    has there been any more testing done to see if this works with the DNX9180DABS?

    Hey Daniel,

    Thanks for the new patch for iOS11.

    I have just intalled the patch files onto my DDX917WS which successfully installed and rebooted. My iPhone is running iOS 11.4.1. When I select air mirroring on the Kenwood unit I don’t get the option to swap from mirrorcast to apples wireless mirroring. The waiting for connection box comes up but doesn’t display the button as shown in your YouTube video. Any tips on a fix would be greatly appreciated or is this possibly as issue with this been a newer version of ios11 than what you used when recording the demonstration video?

    Hey mate,
    Just wondering if the patch worked for you with the DDX918WS?
    I have that same model and would really like it to work.
