CarPlay smartbox install

I’ve installed a retrofit smartbox in my Mercedes C Class,

I think it’s Android, I want to change the car icon to a Mercedes icon. The seller is not very helpful with this idea, but I have an update file for the box which seems to be an Android Rom of some kind. I was thinking of trying to unpack the Rom and if the icon is there trying to change it to the Mercedes one and repack the Rom. Anybody with more knowledge than me know how to go about this ? The other option was trying to mount the box as a drive on a pc or Mac and trying to locate the icon through that way. However the box has a USB socket and that would mean using USB male to make cable. Would this cause an issue with the 5 volts going from box to laptop and vice versus ?

Can anyone help with this lot ?
