Enable Developer Mode and Root the 2017 Honda Civic Android Auto Unit

The 2017 Honda Civic has an infotainment unit with Android Auto installed on it. XDA Member codeage has figured out a way to enable Developer Mode on the head unit. Since that was discovered, they’ve updated their guide to also show you how to gain root access to the device, and even install individual applications on it. This was possible thanks to some work done by XDA Member jersacct and their guide on gaining root access to the 2016 Honda Pilot infotainment unit.
