    Default Update: June 06, 2013

    EFILive encourages customers to use this public update in their production environments.

    Important:
    This latest software update requires updated USB drivers (V2.08.28). You cannot use this version of the software with older versions of the USB drivers.
    If you are having difficulty connecting to FlashScan/AutoCal after installing this update, DO NOT DOWNGRADE THE USB DRIVERS.

    Even More Important:
    The boot block software for FlashScan and AutoCal has been updated to increase the stability of flash memory erase and flash operations under varying environmental conditions. You should update the boot block in your FlashScan and/or AutoCal devices when prompted to by the EFILive Control Panel. If you are not prompted to update the boot block, please manually run the EFILive Control Panel software, select the [F6: Firmware] tab page and update the boot block. After updating the boot block the device will remain in dead-poll until you reprogram the latest firmware into it.

    Any idea when the latest E78 OSs will be supported? I.e. the 2013 Sonic read I sent in?

    I had to reconfigure some stuff for the E78, E39 etc, until the software supports the new feature the changes were for I can't release updates, sorry.
    Need official EFILive help, please go here.
    For tuning support please post your questions on this forum (or other auto forums).
    Sorry if I don't respond to your PM, don't take it personal.

    Loaded the new software and drivers. This is the message I get when I try to connect to EFILive.

    One of my guys was able to get his software updated. The rest of us... well...

    Close down EFILive Explorer, then using Task Manager, make sure the process EFILive_HAPI.exe is not running - kill it if you have to.
    Then restart EFILive Explorer.

    Also, see known issues in first post, that I have just updated.

    Ok, now I have my main tuning unit stuck in dead poll mode after programming boot block. EFilive Explorer will not recognize it. I can no longer connect to it. Tried holding control down when plugging in. No dice. Alternating orange lights.

    Hi Nick,

    Whenever the boot block is updated, it deliberately erases the firmware, which means no application can talk to the device until the firmware is re-programmed.
    EFILive Explorer is not really the place to be updating the boot block. I know it can be done there and sometimes it is necessary, but for normal/standard boot block and firmware updates you should always use [F6: Firmware] tab page on the EFILive Control Panel.

    Regards
    Paul

    I updated the boot block using efilive Control Panel. The Control Panel allowed me to upgrade the block but did not allow me to upgrade the firmware. It said efilve was unable to find a firmware compatible with that bootblock.
