    Did you get the splash screen done?
    Was the process any different than above?

    Can you post a pic?

    I took your instructions above with the HD image then combined it with step 2 below to get my splash screen.

    Step 2 – Enter the Opening Image Change screen
    Insert the USB drive into the DDX9’s USB input and then press and hold the “VOL -” and “MENU”
    buttons simultaneously and then press the Reset button (you will need a small object or use a pen to push this). Let go of the Reset button, but continue to
    hold the “VOL-” and “MENU” buttons until the screen turns on and the “Custom Mode: Opening
    and Wallpaper” screen appears.

    Here is what the final output looks like:

    NOTE: Thanks for the info...This worked like a champ!
    I tried quite a few things including the instructions from Kenwood.
    I tried your instructions (above) and it worked the very first time!

    You can still use google maps on this head unit and put the map on the screen right?

    Slowbra, Here's a couple of Head Unit (HU) screen pics per your request.
    Both the GPS antenna extension and the Sirius/XM antenna are in the dash.
    The panel above the glove box on the top of the dash (it's empty) comes up.

    Notice the wire coming out of the ashtray lid. I can fold it under the ashtray lid and close the drawer.

    Apple CarPlay - Press a couple of buttons on the HU to change from HDMI to CarPlay. Maps works from HU

    Streaming HBO - HDMI is a feed. There is no control of the HBO app from the HU only the iPhone

    Waze - Pic of Waze running on the HU

    Just a side note...to finish off the install I used a Metra Part # 95-5818 Ford truck Multi-Kit F-150
    This gave a very close to factory look and caused the Head Unit to sit a bit higher and straighter.
    NOTE: The top area behind the vent cover where the HU sits needed to be trimmed a bit for fitment.

    The Cup Holder is a Belkin Cup Holder Phone Mount - Black (F8J168bt)
