    Default Cummins User Guides

    There are a range of documents to assist users tuning the 6.7L Cummins.

    Cummins 2010-2018 Quick Start will assist new users to EFILive in setting up their FlashScan, reading, editing, flashing and logging their truck.

    Cummins 6p7L CM2100A CSP5 User Guide provides step by step instructions on upgrading to CSP5, switchable tuning on the fly.
    Cummins 6p7L CM2200 CSP5 User Guide provides step by step instructions on upgrading to CSP5, switchable tuning on the fly.
    Cummins 6p7L CM2350B CSP5 User Guide provides step by step instructions on upgrading to CSP5, switchable tuning on the fly.

    Cummins BootRSA Patch User Guide provides an overview of the RSA digital signature and ways to overcome these restrictions.
    Cummins ECM reference notes assists users with Checksum information, CVN info, VIN issues and debunks a few ECM myths.

    Documentation can also be found in EFILive Scan and Tune Software by selecting Help -> Documents

    Cheers,
    The EFILive Development Team

    In June 2018, EFILive implemented a method that no longer requires third party methods of removing the Digital Signature via OEM 3 Plug Connector for CM2350B controllers. The EFILive ECM flash process now manages this function through the OBD-II port.

    Bench flashing for CM2100 and CM2200 controllers also use this process eliminating the previously implemented BootRSA Patch file process.
    In vehicle flashing for CM2100 and CM2200 controllers still requires the BootRSA Patch file process to remove the digital signature. Please refer to the Cummins Boot RSA Patch User Guide.

    NOTE: The ECM must be fully operational and not in boot mode as a result of a failed flash (error $0340) or forced boot mode. Where the ECM is in boot mode, the unlock process is bypassed and two-step flash process is required to remove the digital signature.

    1. Recover the ECM by flashing a stock tune to restore the ECM to operational mode.
    2. Flash the ECM to remove the digital signature.


    Documentation in the links above have been updated to include these changes.

    Cheers

    If you have a CM2350B, and have updated your software to V8.2.18 and have updated your firmware to V2.07.135 you do not need this document.

    You only need this document if you have either a CM2100 or CM2200 and want to flash in-vehicle, or CM2350B if you've chosen not to update your software and firmware.

    The flash process will manage the unlock process.

    Cheers

    The gateway module will block flash attempts, nothing will happen to the ECM the software will just say it could not put the ECM in to programming mode if your truck has one.

    Thank you for the quick response sorry these questions might seem dumb to you guys but I work at a semi dealership and install Cummins software almost daily and granted it is Cummins software there are still unspoken rules and steps to fallow and I have had to manually input every parameter to revive a ecm from being blanked out but without access to my true ecm parameters might make me more nervous than most just wish there was a tuning for dummies cm2350b unlock addition I

    No it is good to be cautious, Cummins ECM's do like to just give up working for no particular reason.
