    Default Aug 2017, Beta Release 8

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

    Download EFILive V7.5
    Download EFILive V8

    ATTENTION - BETA SOFTWARE RELEASE
    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.

    ** A problem has been identified in the E98 Locking patch for OS's 55503892 and DSP4 65503892, DO NOT apply the locking patch to any tune file using this OS.

    Release Notes:
    Version Numbers:
    After installing this beta release you should have the following software, boot block, firmware versions installed:

    • EFILive V7 software: V7.5.10 Build 330 To view the installed version, select Help->About (in the V7 Scan or Tune software).
    • EFILive V8 software: V8.2.5 Build 322 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: V2.07.120 (Aug 14, 2017) To view/update the Firmware, click the [Check Firmware] button in the V8 Scan and Tune software.


    Known Issues:

    Issue #1:
    E98 OS 55503892 and DSP4 65503892 locking patch may result in an ECM that cannot be unlocked, please don't lock any ECM using this OS.
    Workaround:
    Working on a fix.

    Issue #2:
    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 #3:
    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 #4:
    Some E78 tune files fail to open with the following message: "Unknown bin file format ... Invalid floating point value: 17016-00.08-04-D450".
    Workaround:
    Download the attached E78_calz.zip file and unzip the contents into the folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\EFILive\V7.5\Calibrations, overwrite the existing files.

    Sorry Joe, didn't see your post.

    The workaround should have been:
    Unzip the E78_calz.zip file, then copy the *.calz file from the unzipped E78_calz folder to the \Program Files (x86)\EFILive\V7.5\Calibrations\E78 folder.

    Anyway, an update has been posted here:
