wow........what a great find!
I got it! a success!
Launch Control to 4.5K RPM OK!
D1 and S5 by default OK!
Power button is ON permanent (unless you put it off) OK!
the car feels more German now!
this is great news! Congrats!Guys!! I fixed my car!!!
After a week at BMW I had the car towed back, and uploaded the software successfully!!
4k launches are mine!!!
I will do my best to help others. I'm at work. Keep posted for what I did.
i was getting the same security access denied error as 335xi.
bmw didnt do a damn thing but charge me and ruin a fiberoptic pre-amp unit that i have. it came back to me this morning the same exact was as i recieved it except no audio.
oh ya, they also left it in a few pieces.
unfortunately sir, i do not know.
it could have been a few things, if i were to venture a guess. i would say that it was the lack of a great power supply. the non deleted lines of code from that random text file given in the Guide, improper setup, or maybe clicking "force programming in comfort mode"
being that my entire setup was SOO drastically different, its difficult to say what exactly the cause was.
Because they don't have a flowchart that tells them to do that!!!
In all honesty. I asked. He said they any do that. Truth be told. They don't know what in the hell they are doing.
I think the power button should have nothing to do with the smg software. Are u using euro ecu program as well?Interesting your does not have the power on permanently and has better smooth shifting... contrary as mine...
I wonder what files and software you have....
Yes, I agree shifting in D1 for cruise is perfect.
Yes, I did the clutch adjustment several times.... no changes...
...mac+vmware+dcan cable=bricked ecu. Nothing surprising happened.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Who do you think proves these things before the risk-averse crowd jumps on the bandwagon :blink:
The problem is almost certainly not due to VMware. Read the thread. The difference between working and non-working flashes seems to be either power related (my guess), or security software.
Update: Speaking of noobs.
I pulled the ECU and sent it to ESS. They just emailed me back and told me that the SMG computer isn't part of the ECU. It's in a different box.
So yea - after spending $90 to ship them the WRONG freaking box, I'll be pulling the SMG computer tomorrow and shipping that, as well.
