Just did a swap from the stock Pioneer headunit to one from a 2014 FRS which is the same unit that came in 2014 xB'x. Part number is PT546-00140. I've seen threads saying quite a few people have completed this swap. Everything powers up. THe radio tunes in stations, bluetooth works and connected to my phone, all my contacts and call logs show up. EVERYTHING works, but there is NO SOUND from the speakers. I've seen a couple threads with the same issue but there was no followup as to what the solution was. ANYONE know the fix? Or does anyone have the pin-out of the 2010 harness and the PT546-00140?
I used these adapters:

Metra 40-LX21 Antenna Adapter to Radio for Select 2012 - up Toyota / Scion
Genuine Scion Accessories PT546-00120-CH Wire Harness 28 pin to 20 pin converter
Genuine Scion Accessories PT546-74120-MC Microphone TOYOTA-2012V+CAM-01 + Pac CAM-TY11
Scion OEM Reverse Camera with Plug & Play Harness

ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED

I don't know if the OP ever figured this out but the FRS/BRZ had an external factory amplifier. You'll need to get that and bury it in the dash.

Bump. Having the same problem. Swapped in a frs headunit and getting no sound. I can confirm that it is not an amp thing. I had the Headunit in my FJ cruiser with no problems. I had a Alpine ILX-W650 ion the XB but moved that over to the FJ and put the FRS headunit in the XB. Alpine works fine in both the XB and the FJ, and the FRS headunit works fine in the FJ, but when put into the XB I get no audio. The volume knob doesn't seem to do anything, but everything else works.

What speaker system did you have in the FJ? If it had the 9 speaker, or JBL, system then there was also a factory amp in the FJ. That's the only thing I can think of that might cause what your describing.
