This hack was made possible by renowned Polish programmer Micha Gapiski, whose continuing Tesla-Android project makes the onboard computer of Tesla available for a variety of third-party tampering. Note that this isn’t the first time that Gapiski’s work has been mentioned; his hack also enables the installation of Apple CarPlay. A Raspberry Pi 4 with at least 4GB of RAM is the first prerequisite for sideloading Android Auto into a Tesla. In order for the Raspberry Pi to record video, potential hackers will also require an HDMI module, a micro-HDMI to HDMI cable, a USB-A/USB-C connector, an LTE modem, and a computer to act as a terminal.

Naturally, there are hazards involved in messing with your Tesla in this way, and the idea isn’t officially approved. We strongly advise you to look over Gapiski’s own updated how-to before beginning if you feel like making the effort despite the risk. He seems to be giving clear, specific directions that will be revised as and when Gapiski improves his work. His hardware requirements are particularly important to study because they might alter as the Tesla hack develops. Through its Twitter account, interested DIYers and Tesla owners can also keep up with the Tesla Android project.
