    Default May 2021, V8.3.6 Public Release - Update 1

    Public Release - Update 1
    The current public release is available here.

    Attention:
    V7.5 no longer supports installation to Windows XP or Windows Vista. This change is due to SHA1 having been deprecated by digital certificate authorities. More info on SHA1
    V7.5 and V8 are now only supported on Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.

    WARNING:
    Due to the new security/encryption option in this release, all tune files saved using V7.5.34 or V8.3.5 (or later) of the software or V2.07.169 or V3.00.059 (or later) of the firmware will no longer be compatible with older versions of the V7 or V8 software.
    If you distribute tune files to other users (i.e. your customers), the recipients must be:


    • using version V7.5.34 or V8.3.5 or a later version of the software.
    • using version V2.07.169 or V3.00.059 or a later version of the firmware.


    Full Release Notes:

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

    • EFILive V7 software: V7.5.35 To view the installed version, select Help->About (in the V7 Scan or Tune software).
    • EFILive V8 software: V8.3.6 To view the installed version, select Help->About (in the V8 Scan and Tune software).
    • FlashScan/AutoCal V3 Firmware: V3.00.064 (May 20, 2021).
    • FlashScan/AutoCal V2 Firmware: V2.08.174 (May 20, 2021); Boot Block: V2.08.009 (Feb 27, 2021)


    Download here:

    Known Issues:
    Issue #1:
    Importing JTAG E86B files may result in a Boot Software segment checksum error.
    Workaround:None.
    Don't flash imported files with checksum errors. Don't use the EFILive software to correct checksum errors for the E86B imported files as that does not fix the underlying cause of the checksum error - it just masks the error(s) and causes additional problems.
    We are working on a solution to that problem.

    Hi,
    in the notification email that i received about this update it said that E98 was now supported in V8 editor. I updated my software and tried to open my E98 file, but still said its not supported yet and have to use V7 for editing.

    Nothing wrong with the V7 Editor.

    Where are you seeing that information? E98 has NOT been added to the editor. If we've listed that somewhere we need to correct it.

    Cheers

    I'm not sure if it was forgotten about.... But AL5 FULL flashing is still missing from V8.

    When you say "missing" what do you mean?
    It appears to be active in the latest version.
