G31 Do I really need a new head unit?

I have a 2017 G31 to which I added Carplay via USB from a 3rd party.

Following the EGR valve recall the dealer reprogrammed the car and the Sat Nav no longer works - states "loading". 2 days back at the dealer and following BMW reviewing the code they advise that the car needs a new head unit at a cost of 1500.

They refuse any warranty claim since there is 3rd party code present which was not purchased from BMW.

Can the head unit not be flashed and code reinstalled or would carplay really break it beyond repair? Anyone with similar experiences or suggestions of how to avoid having to pay for a new head unit?
