    Default July 2016: EFILive Beta Test Release

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

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

    ATTENTION - BETA SOFTWARE RELEASE
    The EFILive beta software is 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 that 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 this beta release you should have the following software, boot block, firmware versions installed:
    EFILive V7 software: V7.5.7 Build 310 To view the installed version, select Help->About (in the V7 Scan or Tune software).
    EFILive V8 software: V8.2.2 Build 304 To view the installed version, select Help->About (in the V8 Scan and Tune software).
    Boot Block: V2.07.007 (Feb 07, 2014
    ) To view/update the Boot Block, click the [Check Firmware] button in the V8 Scan and Tune software.
    Firmware: V2.07.103 (July 30, 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 and fully integrated with the V8 tuning tool software.

    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:
    The filename template tags: <seq>,<seq1>,<seq2>,<seq3> and <seq4> do not work correctly in the V7.5 Scan or Tune Tools.
    Workaround:
    None. Will be fixed in the next update.

    Issue 4:
    Access violation when starting the EFILive V8 software.
    Caused when a filename is longer than 130 characters. The limit should be 260 (Window's shell API filename length limit) and it will be adjusted to 260 in the next EFILive update (V8.2.3 build 305).
    Workaround:
    Delete any entry in the \My Documents\EFILive\V8\EFILive_ScanAndTune.ini file in either of the sections [MRU Tune] or [MRU Scan] that contains a filename longer than 130 characters.
    Rename any scan or tune file that has a name longer than 130 characters to 130 characters or less before opening it in the EFILive V8 software.
