    Default Release Candidate 8, Jan 06, 2012

    Release Candidate 8 of the EFILive V7.5 and V8 software is available for download.
    Although we've released this software as a release candidate version, we highly recommend not using it in a production environment or in situations where failure cannot be tolerated.

    Auto Update:

    This latest release candidate uses a new installer from Indigo Rose that is not compatible with the V7.5 and V8 software that has been installed with the QSetup installer.
    You must uninstall the current publicly released V7.5 and V8 software prior to installing this release candidate.
    The new installer supports auto updating but it will not be enabled until the full public release of the EFILive software.
    For now, please download and install this release candidate using the links below.

    Manual download/install available here:

    Important information
    Boot block and Firmware updates
    Please update your FlashScan and AutoCal boot blocks to V2.07.04 (Dec 13, 2011) and the firmware to V2.07.22 (Jan 06, 2011).
    The boot block update fixes a problem with AutoCal's LCD in low temperatures.
    The firmware version has deliberately been left at V2.07.22 so that customers can easily revert back to the existing publicly released V2.07.22 (Aug 24, 2011) firmware if this latest firmware causes problems.


    *.ctd v's *.ctz file format
    *.ctd (calibration tune data) files are no longer supported by the latest FlashScan and AutoCal firmware. The new file format supported by FlashScan and AutoCal is *.ctz (calibration tune zip) files. The V7.5 and V8 software will continue to allow you to open/read *.ctd files but you can only save files in the new *.ctz file format. This is only a concern for tuners that are sending tune files to their customers. If you want to send *.ctz files to your customers, then your customers must also have the latest V7.5 and V8 software installed and must also have their FlashScans and AutoCals updated with the latest firmware.

    Script Files
    Script files have been updated. The latest script files must be copied to FlashScan/AutoCal devices to maintain compatibility with the latest V2.07.22 (Jan 06, 2012) firmware.

    Known Issues:
    Issue #1
    Attempting to read a CMB/CMC controller using standalone reading (BBR) when no vehicle is connected to FlashScan/AutoCal may cause FlashScan/AutoCal to hang. In that case you should power cycle FlashScan/AutoCal to regain control.
    Issue #2
    AutoCal may become unresponsive to USB commands from the host PC after completing a BBF operation while still connected to the PC via USB.
    Issue #3
    E55 BBL does not work.
    Issue #4
    Disabling BTM on the Cummins may set a MIL with a checksum DTC, seems hit and miss (this should be 100% cured in RC8a).
    Issue #5
    Selecting "Update All Items" from the right-click context menu on the quick-start list of the main scan and tune window will cause the application to hang after it has completed the update process.
    Issue #6
    Cannot copy or paste text in to the Tune Tool navigator
    Issue #7
    Table B1829 on all 2012 E38 OS's has the RPM axis wrong.
    Issue #8
    Flashing LBZ or LMM ECM's with v7.5 RC8 will fail, you need to use V8 to flash the LBZ/LMM until this is fixed.
    Reporting Issues:
    If you discover any problems/faults, please make a note of them in this thread.
    For urgent or complicated issues, please create a support ticket here: http://support.efilive.com

    What's new in this release candidate (since Release Candidate 7):
    For a description of previous updates, please see the RC7 thread here:
    http://forum.efilive.com/showthread....-7-Dec-22-2011

    Changes in RC8:


    • Fixed Help->Tutorial menus linking to the wrong documents.
    • Fixed up controller selection in BBX so that existing captions are not overwritten when editing window first opens.
    • Fixed LBZ/LMM BBL from failing with "Unsupported PID" messages.
    • Changing the VIN in the V7 software on the main calibrations page now also changes the VIN in the *.ctz files' meta data area. The meta data VIN is what shows up in the "quick start" list in the main window of the the V8 software.
    • The Cummins fuel timing calculator now displays a brief help message explaining the use and purpose of the calculator.
    • Fixed CMB checksum issue caused by "box tuners" not returning controllers to stock (please refer to new pdf guide for more info).
    • Fixed LBZ/LMM DSP5 full-flash no-start condition.
    • If a *.ctz file is flagged by the software with a bad controller checksum, the V8 flash process (standalone or pass-thru) will no longer allow the file to be flashed.
    • Added CMB OS 11700101
    • Added CMC OS 11520902 , 11610805 & 11720505
    • Changed CMC read script for 11min read time.
    • Added Pilot Injection timing tables for 6.7L Cummins.
    • Added a new Cummins 'ECM Reference notes' PDF in the Help->Tutorial menus.

    I had RC7 installed and my V2 updated off of RC7 when I updated to RC8. My question is, my Bootblock still says V2.07.04 Dec 12, 2011 and Firmware 2.07.22 Dec 13, 2011 when I I thought I needed to update them as well. But then I saw the V2.07.04 and V2.07.22 are the same, just it doesnt match the dates listed above in RC8. I assume since EFILive Control Panel is telling me they're "OK" after updating to RC8, and the V2.XX.XX's match as above, there's nothing to worry about?

    FUBAR, this is when you need to use EFILive Explorer to manually flash the firmware in. Since the RC7, 8a versions are the same revision as the last public release, V8 HAPI will NOT prompt you to update because it checks the revision and not the date (IIRC, I havent even updated my fw to the RC7 one :( ). Check the dates, if they dont match the ones in this release, then manually flash the fw in using EFILive Explorer.

    That's what puzzles me. I'm referring to when I tried it via EFIlive explorer as well. It still says ok in the Firmware tab. I don't see any options to manually flash an update it unless I'm missing something. I'll look again.

    Ok, plug your V2 in then open EFILive Explorer. Click the F12: Firmware tab then click Browse. Should by default pull up C:\Program Files (x86)\EFILive\V8\Firmware [Windows 64 bit, 32 bit will be in C:\Program Files\EFILive\...]. Look for FSProgV2_07_22.efw and look at the date modified. For me it is 1/5/2012 12:01pm for RC8a. Select it, then click Open. Now click Program, should program it to your V2 then reboot it like normal. Click the Refresh button to check the date on the fw.
