As an Adventurous guy, I had to try the update 5.4.B.R6 with my SMEG+ on a 2015 Peugeot 508.
At first, the update was accepted by the unit's self test and the install began normally. Then, at the APPBIN phase, the update hung, i.e. progess on the infamous blue screen went on and on and on...
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
So, after getting tired of waiting, I switched off the engine and disconnected the battery. After half a minute, I reconnected it with the USB key still connected. The update then continued with a blank
(read: black) screen! 10 minutes later, the unit rebooted with two splash screens: first the Peugeot lion and then the Citroen wave! That was one hell of a laugh!
After the unit had completed booting, it showed a light theme belonging to a Citroen Cactus or something! Very funny theme, btw. I changed the display theme to Square Blue and all was back to normal again...
Also, the Citroen wave was gone on the next boot.
All the settings and POIs were retained throughout the update.
All in all, the update succeeded. The SMEG+ is functioning normal again, running the 5.4.B.R6 software.
So, if you try 5.4.B.R6 bear in mind that there some pitfalls! Also, this update takes considerably longer than a "normal" one.
P.S: Has anyone ever tried to revert back to an earlier version of the firmware? Is this possible?

Thanks, works fine in a C4 P II (2013)
AFAIK, Carplay must be activated with diagbox afterwards. I don't know if this software supports it, though, as I am allergic to apples, especially green ones.
I noticed a new versions of the display software (32.00), but no new functions.
As for the GP: I can't test that, but @pub did. Why don't you give it a shot?
@pub: can you assist?

What scares WayneLaPie, there is an updated concession, the 5.4.B.R8.
You can buy 5.4.B.R6 and not this latest ?
There must be a problem that a new update has arrived so quickly?

I have a 508SW from october 2014 with touchscreen. Originally it came with SMEG 5.1.F.R4 (dated 21/02/14), and I upgraded before to SMEG 5.2.C.R1 (dated 01/08/15). Should I now choose for 5.4B.R6 or 6.1.D.R8?
