Thanks for this. I am having problem getting in to engineering mode on my Kia CEED 2019, SW CD.EUR.SOP.007.1.191209.STD_M. I cannot get to ALL APPLICATIONS.
Only thing working for me is imaginary phone dial, but there there is no ALL APPLICATIONS option.

Does it work on 2020 models, e.g. Niro hybrid? Thanks.

For now I was able to enter Dealer Mode in Kia XCeed with 10.25″ screen, software version CD_20.EUR.S5W_L.001.001.200128, using this method:

1. Press Setup> General> System info> Version info
2. Turn the volume to 0
3. Turn the volume up to 7 and confirm with the right tuner knob
4. Turn the volume down to 3 and confirm with the right tuner knob
5. Turn the volume down to 1 and confirm with the right tuner knob

Password 2400

Still looking for Engineering Mode hack.
