Default MMI update files needed...anyone?

Hey guys, just looking into upgrading my 2006 A8 MMI 2G from version 1190 to the latest version. Mainly because my car doesn't have the SD cards that my A4's RNS-E has and all I have is satellite radio. I need tunes!! I'm considering adding AMI but my f/w is too old. I've done tons of research regarding the procedure and have flashed firmware many times, but the hosted files online seem to have washed up and I cannot find any copies of the 3360 or the 4610 f/w. Can anyone help? Pm me if necessary...Please and thank you! I know they can be purchased for like $25, but if they are online somewhere I'm missing, I'd much rather go that route.

The disks cost about $8-$12 each. Here is a invoice from about a month ago.

Code:
4F0906961AB CDROM         1 $0.00  $8.62
4L0906961H  CDROM         1 $0.00  $8.62
4F0998961  repair kit     1 $0.00 $24.18
Got them from audisandiego.com

Are you really willing to risk bricking a module or the MMI on some iso image from who knows where?

Yep. Need MMI update files for download...anyone?

Worked smooth as a babies butt! Rockin AMI with either my USB hard disk, or my iPod, or my bluetooth adapter for streaming now. If anyone needs help, hit me up.

I am interested in doing this upgrade and have a few questions.
with this upgrade
Will I be able to play songs from my ipod, iphone.
Pair my Blackberry, Android phones to the car for calling and receiving handsfree calls
Do I need anything additional - wires or anything to accomplish the above

Is there a short way of saving my current settings in vcds, so that if anything stops working, I can find out existing values before and after to make them the same as before

Thanks in advance

Give us some specifics about what car you have. That would help a bunch. Updating these files will in NO way allow for hands free calling. This is handled separately via the Bluetooth module under the passenger seat and microphone in the overhead console. There is a Bluetooth streaming adapter that can be had to connect to AMI to allow for streaming from any Bluetooth device.

The answers to your questions are all no apart from do you need extra wires - which is yes if you don't have AMI and the cable*, I don't think anyone had the heart.

*You can't stream music via bluetooth on the as A2DP wasn't generally available until the late 00's.
