This is an E-spec Honda HRV (Hip and smart Runabout Vehicle) that comes with fewer gadgets. At the front, it comes with a pair of yellowish halogen Daytime running lamp. X-wing brings their current modern theme across models (Jazz, City, CR-V), “big head” body ratio add a little fierce and make the car appear bigger from front.

Pretty basic Honda sterling wheel with audio player and hands-free control at lower left.

The audio player supports Bluetooth music stream, pair your smartphone with it, use music player or Spotify to play, then you will notice music are play from car speakers.

The only way that work for me as below:

i) download latest Redmi 1 Singapore stable rom from official site: JHBMIBL29.0 (V5)
ii) plug-in USB and copy downloaded miui_HMWSGP_JHBMIBL29.0_e23fadd331_4.2.zip file to your phone’s SD card
iii) go in to Settings -> About phone -> System updates, press Menu button, “Select update package”
iv) choose miui_HMWSGP_JHBMIBL29.0_e23fadd331_4.2.zip click “Update” -> “Start Update“, refer here for print-screen

Now, i have a complete un-rooted Redmi 1 with latest JHBMIBL29.0 ROM. Then, begin the step to root Redmi1 like normal, as below:

For Singapore unit, download two files titled as below from the thread or download directly from dropbox link below,

i) HM1SG-TWRP-2.5.0.0-stas2z.zip
ii) root-stable.zip

Steps:

1) copy two downloaded files above into sdcard2 root
ii) turn off phone, then press “Volume Down” and “Power” button at the same time
2) now, a “Boot Mode” screen with three selection will be display, press “Volume Down” button to select “Recover Mode”, then press “Volume up” button
3) a lying android graphic will be seen, press on “Power” button, then you will enter Recovery mode with a list of selection
4) press “Volume down” button to select “apply update from sdcard2″
5) press “Volume down” button to choose “HM1SG-TWRP-2.5.0.0-stas2z.zip” and press “Power” button to begin installation of TWRP Recovery
6) After successful installation, it will bring back to Recovery mode main screen, remove battery and wait a couple of seconds
7) place battery back and press “Volume down” + “Power” button, choose “Recovery Mode” in Boot mode screen
8) now TWRP Recovery main screen with menu selections will be show
9) select “Install” from the menu, choose root-stable.zip on SD card and Swipe to confirm flash
10) after sucessful flash, select “back” button to main screen, select “Reboot” from menu and click on “System”
11) lastly, restarted into normal mode, then you will see new “SuperSU” icon on your screen and you gained root access

Then, all done with rooted access. Install “Root Checker” to confirm the phone is successfully rooted. If you are using XiaoBaiJingLing / DummySprite as me, remember to allow float window at: Settings -> Apps -> Downloaded -> DummySprite -> check on “Show popup windows”.

It’s been 5 years driving Mazda 3 2010, the car getting aged and parts are gradually giving me problems. That trigger idea of changing a more daily practical car that more comfort and relax to drive, Honda HR-V come to the top of my list.

Bought the Ruse Black crossover from Honda Imavest Sdn Bhd (4S Centre), it is a 4S centre that offer sales, service, systems and spare-parts. Moreover, it does paint job too.

This is one amazingly fast experience of purchasing car. Thanks to Mr. Bruce Lee, a responsible gentlemen that do thing right on time and keep me update on important progress. So efficient that it takes only exactly 8 days of purchasing time ( 25th February noon – 5th March noon) to apply loan, traded in Mazda 3, done previous hire purchase settlement, new car registration, tinting and get the car ready for me to collect on 5th March noon. I strongly recommend if you going to get a Honda, he can be contact at this number: +60196678823.

This is a very practical day to day car, spacious storage, adequate engine power with acceptable handling and i expect it to be fuel saving as Honda claim it.

Two things that i think it lack, first, the good looking 17 inch that both Indonesia and Thailand get compare to our old looking 16 inch alloy rim. Second, lack of peddle shift which can be use to down shift gear manually and slow down the speed faster without much breaking while drive over bumps.

After few days of driving, pretty satisfied with overall performance but expect much less spirited-drive as Mazda cars can provide.

Honda HR-V: Sport Rim Matching

Category : Cars · No Comments · by Mar 3rd, 2015

Honda HR-V is one very good looking car in this subcompact crossover segment, but i truly can’t accept Malaysia version with stock 16-inch rim. The car should be fitted with at least 17-inch and above. Therefore, asked my talented colleague MR. Tim Ng for suggestion, instead of just picture of rims, he helped to photoshop on to print-screened Ruse black HR-V.

Advanti HL567: majority of my friends prefer this, as the pattern matched modern theme of HR-V. Too bad it is an old model which no longer available in several shops i asked.

Enkei Tuning SC32: two tone spokes that help the wheel looks visually bigger. This is the one i installed in the end. Refer to this page: Honda HR-V: Changed 17″ RIM and Owner Review

Lenso Conquista 4: star design that looks like five bold spokes. Looks ok but personally less prefer on this because look alike to existing Audi stock rim.

Thanks to Mr. Tim, i doesn’t need to hassle by visiting stores, install those rims temporary just to decide whether it match.
