The Neil Oakley site is slow as hell and drops connections all the time.. I can host on an enterprise server with enough interest.
I like the idea, especially if there is a repository for each of the different versions of the operating software. As the biggest problem is the dealer parts guys only think of the $200 map disks not the $36.00 O/S. And then if you have a big enough hammer to drive the point home, they are incapable of locating the part number. But if you talk to a tech who has been around long enough to know the older systems they will probably know for what you are asking. But they likely won't have it, so you're still hosed. The only down side is that the software is copyrighted. And nobody wants to be the next MegaUpload.

I am inclined and if anyone has older versions of the software or .iso's with the lists of modifications to it (splash screens, icons etc.) please let me know. I ought to have something setup within the week.

I think I'll ask the mods to sticky a thread for me. I can list what's in the repository etc. I'll use a FQDN so I can move it around if I need to.

I have, I believe, everything from v.17 thru v.32 and the Key CD. They are all OE and in modified.

In your original post you stated E38. I have a version 32 with an e39 splash screen with the //M.

Can anyone confirm this?
you already have the US version and the legal disclaimer. You just don't get to see it because your car's nav' computer is not set to "US".

If you want the disclaimer, set the one of the nav' computer's language selections to English (US). and from then on if you have selected Eng. (US) you will have the disclaimer.

Alright. So upgrading will not show the disclaimer as long as it stays set to English (UK)?
