    Generally a locked ECM can only be unlocked if you know the lock key. Ross (GMPX) can unlock them but I'm assuming you're going to be in the US in which case shipping to Australia might be more expensive than buying another E38 ECM.

    Have someone with HPTuners unlock it? But if you have to pay for credits to do so, its cheaper to buy a new E38 and not hassle with it.

    That won't work unless it was the actual person that locked it, any other person using EFILive or HPT will be in the same boat. It's not the HPT custom OS that is the problem.

    Ah I thought it was a COS issue, not a seed/key lock. If thats the case, then either the person/cable needs to be used to unlock it or a new ECM.

    I've done a entire write of a clean OS onto an existing hptuned e38 before. Obviously the seed/key were still intact.
