    Default April 2016: EFILive Beta 2 Test Release

    Please download and install both the V7.5 and V8 software packages.

    Both the V7.5 and V8 software were updated in this beta test release, you must update both software packages.

    ATTENTION - BETA SOFTWARE RELEASE
    At EFILive we have changed the way beta testing is conducted. The EFILive beta software is now available to all users. We strongly recommend that you do not install the beta software over the top of your production systems. It is possible that the beta test software may fail and your production system may not be recoverable. lf you conduct a tuning business, please take the necessary precautions to protect your business. EFlLive recommends beta testers use a separate FlashScan V2 device (when installing the latest beta firmware) and only install the EFlLive beta test software on a separate PC, laptop or virtual machine.

    Release Notes:
    Version Numbers:
    After installing the latest release you should have the following software, boot block, firmware versions installed:
    EFILive V7 software: V7.5.7 Build 305
    To view the installed version, select Help->About (in the V7 Scan or Tune software).

    EFILive V8 software: V8.2.2 Build 296
    To view the installed version, select Help->About (in the V8 Scan and Tune software).

    Boot Block: V2.07.07 (Feb 07, 2014
    )
    To view/update the Boot Block, click the [Check Firmware] button in the V8 Scan and Tune software.

    Firmware: V2.07.99 (Apr 21, 2015
    )
    To view/update the Firmware, click the [Check Firmware] button in the V8 Scan and Tune software.

    Known Issues


    Issue 1:
    If you are Black Box Logging PIDs from an ECM and TCM simultaneously and you have selected a PID from the transmission controller (TCM) that has an identically named PID in the engine controller (ECM), then when the log file is loaded back into the V8 software for viewing, that TCM PID will be displayed as if it originated from the ECM. The PID's data will have correctly been logged from the TCM, only its name will appear to indicate that it was logged from the ECM.
    Workaround:
    None.
    It is a restriction of the *.efi (V7.5 log file format). That restriction will be removed and the TCM PIDs will display their true origin once the V8 scan tool software is available.

    Issue 2:
    When logging DMA PIDs (i.e. PIDs whose names end with "_M" or "_DMA"), if the ignition is switched off for an extended period while data logging but data logging is not terminated, then when the ignition is switched on again the data log automatically continues. However the DMA PIDs may no longer return valid data.
    Workaround:
    EFILive recommends stopping the data log and restarting the data log when switching off the ignition for extended periods.

    Issue 3:
    When using the [F8: Tools]->[F2: Search]->[Browse] tab page to browse for EFILive files, the folder contents displayed in the right hand list view can unexpectedly switch back to the folder that is currently highlighted in the left hand tree view.
    Workaround:
    Re-navigate to the required folder.
    Issue 4:
    If the [F6: Devices] window is open and you click on the [Edit AutoCal Settings] button in the [F5: BBX]->[F6:Quick Setup] window, the error

    Most everything seems ok so far, but the first hangup is that you can not "right click (anything) copy, etc" on a scan tool map....

    Trying to revert to previous version now....

    Ok, good.... Seems as if reverting to the previous version solved the problem for now.

    So far no version related conflicts... "right click" now works

    Both softwares contain Scan Tools, are you referring to the V8 Scan Tool or V7 Scan Tool?

    Cheers

    Hi Chuck,

    I've just added "Known Issue 5" in the first post, including a workaround until the context menu is restored.

    Shouldn't this be in the beta subforum?
