Well, I have ordered the cable. And I think I have all the right software! I'm excited to try! If it all works out I'll try to upload or post links to the downloads
Here is a link to a torrent with everything you need for this.
Hey Cesar! I got your pm, sorry I am too "new" to respond to it. I am still waiting for my cable to arrive. I think it can take 2 weeks. Once I have it I will give it a go. Once I complete it on my car I would be glad to help out others in the CHI area.I would be interested if there's someone in Chicago that can help.
Thanks in advance,
What year is your car? I would like to know what ZB version is on your current smg before you do anything. At least give us more information. If thats cool.
Hmm 06. well starting to rule out model year. The other useful tidbit would have been prior version. Has your car been to the dealership lately for updates?
I'm sorry to hear this and wish you had waited. I have been trying to figure this out around the clock and the only thing I have right now is the latest ecu version might lock out other versions. So if you were running the latest US smg it would fail to take any other program. I'm sure tuners have figured this out however probably wont want to tell us whats going on. The good news is the smg ecu is not broken, it just with the software we have will not take a tune.
You made it to 100% and got signature check error?
Have you taken your car to the dealer yet? We are still waiting to hear from a contact there.I really don't want to pay for new ECU....
Ya. I told them what we were attempting as I called from a shop that they do with business with occasionally.They can't flash Euro software because they don't have it. They'd flash the latest US software. So should we assume they're charging you to re-load the US Ver 3 software? And did they go ahead with it yet?
Also - did you tell them what you were doing? Or did they figure out the Euro part on their own?
This Is all in the nature of modding cars. Especially now. With computers to work around. Etc.That seems to be what's going on. Vodyk thinks it's coded into the latest version of the SMG software. It 'bricks' and the only way to unlock is through dealership access, for now...
GOD this sucks! If you guys could see how excited he was when this successfully uploaded and worked on my car... and now that it doesn't work for everyone else... let's just say he's 'disappointed'
My gf thinks the same thing!!My wife thought I was a [email protected] for messing with my M5
And that is risk-free. No way to hose anything. But, the mirrors don't fold up automatically. You need to hold the keyfob lock button down. On unlock, they unfold automatically.
Even though I was a newb at winkfp, the instructions are quite simple. I used NCSExpert before on multiple E60s with no issue.
Mind posting a link?I got this help from another forum:
I have come across this before, it is to do with the import of data, off memory a file like sgidc.as2 off memory in the kmmdata folder
Sorry its in the gdaten folder, it should have the correct signature string, i would copy the whole gdaten folder from your spdaten, delete the lines that winkfp tell you to, and you should be fine
I asked some followup questions as to me these instructions are quite vague.
