    Default September 2020, Beta 50 release 1

    **Edit** New software now available, please see the updated post in the Software Updates and Installation Help forum
    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. EFILive recommends beta testers use a separate FlashScan V3/V2 device (when installing the latest beta firmware) and only install the EFILive beta test software on a separate PC, laptop or virtual machine.

    This beta update contains a new CSP switchable tune operating system for CMF controllers. It is an "early access" feature that is not intended for production use just yet. EFILive is looking for feedback on the performance of the CMF CSP OS. Please do not install the CMF CSP OS on remote vehicles. Only install it on vehicles in your workshop that you can recover easily if the CSP5 OS causes problems.

    For users dealing with the V3 AutoCal products you must use this release and ensure that all devices have the firmware updated to the version in this release prior to being used on vehicles.

    The current public release is available here.

    Changes to V8 software

    • Multiple *.cax8 files may now be defined for a single operating system.
    • Provider details are now displayed per calibration so that the user can know if a calibration is provided by the EFILive software or via a third party *.cax8 file.
    • Fixed CMB flash attempts that were failing with $0301 errors.


    Changes to V2 firmware (V2.07.164)

    • None.


    Changes to V3 firmware (V3.00.046)

    • Full control over user defined menus, colors, fonts background and splash images is now available. See \Documents\EFILive\V8\User Defined Menus\SampleCustomMenu.txt for more details.


    Full Release Notes:

    Version Numbers:
    After installing this beta release you should have the following software and firmware versions installed:

    • EFILive V7 software: V7.5.31 To view the installed version, select Help->About (in the V7 Scan or Tune software).
    • EFILive V8 software: V8.3.1 To view the installed version, select Help->About (in the V8 Scan and Tune software).
    • FlashScan/AutoCal V3 Firmware: V3.00.049 (Sep 09, 2020).
    • FlashScan/AutoCal V2 Firmware: V2.07.164 (Jul 30, 2020).


    Download here:
    **Edit** New software now available, please see the updated post in the Software Updates and Installation Help forum

    Known Issues (in beta 49):
    Issue #1:
    Providing custom splash and/or background images that are not exactly 240x320 pixels in size can cause the V3 device to crash while displaying the main menu - rendering the device unusable.
    Workaround:
    Update to beta 50.

    Issue #2:
    Reading and flashing via V8 pass-thru or V3 BBx fails.
    Workaround:
    Update to beta 50.

    Regards,
    The EFILive Team

    Went to black box cal flash today and got $0503 error "script file not valid"--LS1B. After the failed attempt, I re-downloaded the latest beta softwares, wiped the config and SD card, re-saved the tune file in V7.5 software just in case. Reloaded the config and tune file to FlashScan V2.... did the "check firmware" button the V8 software and said all was OK. Had the same error when attempting to flash out in the car.

    edit: Just tried pass-thru flashing. Works fine using V7.5 tune tool. Same error when I use V8 software.

    I've been actively using it the past several months/weeks, worked fine on last beta. No other changes. Let me know if you need any other info or ideas to try.

    This problem affects all controllers for V8 pass-thru and V3 BBx reading and flashing.
    A new beta release (Beta 50) with multiple fixed issues will be posted later today.

    Really sorry for the inconvenience.

    Regards

    While the V8 software is still in beta and while we are still validating the correctness and stability of the V8 editor, we have only provided editing for the following controller/OS combinations:

    32170101 CME
    12628594 E35
    12617248 E37
    12647991 E38
    15189044 E54
    15228758 E60
    12656245 E67
    12202088 LS1B

    We will be releasing V8 editing support for additional controllers and operating systems soon. For now when editing other controllers and operating systems, you will need to keep using the V7 editor.

    Paul
