    Default Update:Oct 16, 2013

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

    Download here:
    The latest stable release is available here: http://www.efilive.com/downloads.htm
    Additional updates are listed here: http://www.efilive.com/latest/cat/do...e-nov-07-2013/

    Updates:

    V7

    • E92 Preliminary calibrations release.
    • CSP5 V1.01 public release.
    • Cleaned up the DTC editor for late model Duramax controllers.


    V8

    • Fixed some minor issues with number and date formats when using a non-US locale.
    • Added warning prior to editing calculated PIDs that explains the required floating point numeric format when using a non-US locale.
    • Added dashboard/gauge editor (currently available to authorized beta testers only).
    • Updated default dashboard gauges.
    • Added Open/Save options for loading/saving charts and gauges independently of the entire dashboard.

    Note: existing *.ctz and *.coz files can be opened by this and newer versions of the EFILive software.

    Firmware

    Paul,

    Can .coz and .ctz files be created with this version and sent for BBX flash (autocal use) on older platforms, or must customers update their hardware to allow flashing?

    Thanks,
    Nick

    The old firmware and/or old software will not be able to read the new file format.
    The end users must update their software and firmware to be able to open, and/or flash *.ctz and *.coz files that you create using this latest version.

    Regards

    It was to fix a bug that under some conditions caused the wrong data to be used to generate seed/key locking data which in turn would cause problems when attempting to unlock that same controller later on.
    You can see the entry for it in the Sep 25 release, the one about the E38, E54 and E60 auto-lock fix. The bug fix necessarily "broke" the backward compatibility of the file format. In the Sep 25 release the files were not tagged as incompatible with the older software so the fix was ignored until this release. :(

    And yes opening old tune files with the new software is 100% transparent. You just can't open the newer files with the older software since the older software does not understand the changes made in the newer file's format.

    Regards

    Nothing for E78 however I am pleased to say that has now moved up the development list.

    E92 uses our VIN license system. Stream licenses are an historical legacy retired some years ago.

    Cheers
