    Default BBL installer update: June 12, 2008

    The Black Box Logging beta software is now available as a fully self contained Windows installation. As well, we have made available the latest V7.5.4 EFILive Scan and Tune software as a fully self contained Windows installation.

    Please read this entire thread before downloading and/or attempting to update any part of the EFILvie software or FlashScan hardware.

    Although both packages are still designated as beta releases, they are stable and may be used in place of V7.5.3 and previous versions of V7.5.4. As with all beta software there may still be some slight teething problems with the installation, upgrade and reconfiguration of V7.4.x to V7.5.3. for that reason we do not recommend using this software in a production environment where failures cannot be tolerated.

    Important pre-requisites that must be in place BEFORE you attempt to upgrade to the new software and/or firmware.

    Under no circumstances should you attempt to use boot block V2.05.06 (released March 26, 2008).
    See this link for more info on what is wrong with V2.05.06
    http://forum.efilive.com/showthread.php?t=7804

    FlashScan MUST be running firmware V2.04.72 before you attempt to upgrade the boot block. If your FlashScan device is running V2.04.70 or V2.04.71 and you perform the boot block upgrade, FlashScan will be upgraded with the wrong boot block version. If you are in that situation, please see this thread: http://forum.efilive.com/showthread.php?t=8085

    To upgrade your FlashScan device to V2.04.72, use this program: Start -> EFILive V7.5 -> Update FlashScan V2 Firmware.
    The firmware file is available here: \Program Files\EFILive\V7.5\FSProg_V2_4_72.ffw.

    After performing the boot block upgrade, the two orange LEDs will flash, indicating that the boot block upgrade process is complete even though the LCD screen will continue to dimly display the message:
    BOOTBLOCK UPGRADE
    IN PROGRESS
    DO NOT
    INTERRUPT

    At this point you should uninstall V7.5.3 (or any earlier version of EFILive that is on your system). You can unplug FlashScan during the install if you want/need to.

    The readme.pdf document says to backup your *.tun and *.efi files and to delete the two folders where EFILive was installed. Renaming them, as explained below is quicker and safer than backing them up and deleting them.

    So, rename the following folders if they are still present on your system.





    Version 7.4 and earlier folders:
    • \My Documents\EFILive\V7 to \My Documents\EFILive\V7_old
    • \Program Files\EFILive\V7 to \Program Files\EFILive\V7_old
    Version 7.5.x folders:
    • \My Documents\EFILive\V7.5 to \My Documents\EFILive\V7.5_old
    • \Program Files\EFILive\V7.5 to \Program Files\EFILive\V7.5_old
    The purpose of renaming those folders is so that when V7.5.4 is installed it will not delete or overwrite any files that you have saved or modified in those folders.

    Install V7.5.4 and V8.1.1

    After the new software has been installed (reconnect FlashScan if necessary) and while the two orange LEDs are flashing, you must program the new FSProgV2_05_17(0612).efw firmware into the FlashScan device. To do that, use the program: Start->EFILive->V8.1->EFILive Explorer.
    The Readme.pdf file attached to this post contains detailed instructions on how to successfully upgrade your FlashScan device's boot block and/or firmware.

    EFILive recommends copying your previous setup and data files from the old V7 software (the folders you renamed earlier) to the new V7.5.4 software. To do that, copy the following folders (overwrite existing files):

    From: \My Documents\EFILive\V7.5_old\User Configuration to \My Documents\EFILive\V7.5\User Configuration
    From: \My Documents\EFILive\V7.5_old\PIDs to \My Documents\EFILive\V7.5\PIDs
    From: \My Documents\EFILive\V7.5_old\MAPs to \My Documents\EFILive\V7.5\Maps
    From: \My Documents\EFILive\V7.5_old\VDash to \My Documents\EFILive\V7.5\VDash
    From: \My Documents\EFILive\V7.5_old\Logged Data to \My Documents\EFILive\V7.5\Logged Data
    From: \My Documents\EFILive\V7.5_old\bins to \My Documents\EFILive\V7.5\bins

    (You may need to substitute V7_old for V7.5_old depending on which version of EFILive was previosuly installed).

    http://download2.efilive.com/Softwar...LiveV8.1.1.exe (7Mb)

    Any questions, please post in a new thread in this forum.
    Please read the three attached files for more information about the V7.5.4 and V8.1.1 updates.

    Install went well.

    Still having a problem with the T42 upshift base pressure tables D8101 and D8201. D8301 is working properly. Both metric and imperial units show 90psi/620kPa.

    Will this update allow me to do this:

Then use EFILive_Explorer to copy the trace file to your PC and then send it to me at paul@efilive.com

    I noticed the "Switch.ini" file info is now at the bottom of the "options.ini". Any word on when we'll be able to use the V2 to switch tunes? Any chance we'll be able to use the V2 to enable "valet" mode?

    In the Options.ini file it the hotkeys should be 1, 2, 3 and 4 not F1, F2, F3 and F4.
