I was trying to update from 2.2 to 3.0 and every time I would run the update it would die about 5 minutes in with a simple message and an error code "ERR_MEM003." There are a bunch of workarounds online that revolve around installing the update piece-meal, but none of those worked. Ultimately I figured this should not my problem to deal with. Yours sounds like a problem though! I'd definitely take it in and describe what's going on. They can't possibly think it's normal!

Exact same issue I was having so in the end I said F it and just stuck with the 2.2 version. I mean 2.2 works without any hiccups for me.

Back to reality - AA still slow to load in general, maybe slightly faster. No issues with functionality. Play resume of music might work a bit better. Otherwise not a big change.

Out of curiosity, where do these unoffical files tend originate from? And more specifically build 19119? I see the google drive link a few posts back. But the user that posted it, where did he get it from. Since the current published stable release is Build 18093 (wikipedia page or Ford Sync). I'm assuming only the latest stable release is what can be download from ford owner site. Since I'm on build 18093 and ford owner says I'm up to date. If these unofficial releases don't come from Ford Owner website, where do they come from?

I found a comprehensive posting of Sync packages here. Use Google translate to convert from Russian.

19119 did not upgrade properly on my 2016 NAV. The upgrading and complete "remove usb" messages were all normal, but after shutdown and restart, Black Screen only after RS splash screen.
Tried the previously posted, upgrade in the blind wait 45 minutes running, then shutdown for 30 minutes, no improvement.
Tried reset sync, pwr/right seek, no effect.
Tried battery disconnect, no effect.
Got back to normal screen by using 18025 to downgrade, blind update.

Just to clarify before I take the leap, is this update just unzip to root and plug into car? I've got the build18093 on my 2018 with Nav and I remember there being more of a process for 2.2 to the 3.0. I may need to go back and read this thread from the beginning again.

Did you ever use the leaked 2.2 "downgrade"? If I remember correctly, every build of Sync was slightly different depending on what updates were previously installed, and Ford had to make several variations of the same build for cars and it was a cluster**** in general.
I had previously used the 2.2 downgrade to get a clean "standard" version and then used the subsequent unofficial builds to move through the builds of 3.0.
