    Support for the E86 controller has since been split into E86A and E86B and all files have been renamed accordingly. You should reformat the [Config] file system and then re-setup the controllers that you want supported on your FlashScan using the [F5: BBX] option in the V8 Scan and Tune software.

    The Durumax family on EFILive:

    The E54 controller is for LB7
    The E60 controller is for LLY
    The E35A controller is for LBZ
    The E35B controller is for LMM
    The E86A controller is for LML 2011-2014 (this used to be called just E86)
    The E86B controller is for LML 2015+

    So if you previously used E86, then you will now need to use E86A instead.

    i bought a new laptop and its a Lenovo with windows 10. I downloaded v8 and v7.5 straight off efilive.com but now need to connect my v2 and get it operational as my old windows xp keeps randomly shutting down.
    any tips to make this painless, doing updates and changing pc is the part that scares me. tuning on my car is the easy part to me. thanks, Chad

    Install V8, install V7, copy your tunes/logs to new PC/laptop, copy contents of folder User Configuration to the same folder on new PC/laptop, plug in FSV2, start V8 S&T.

    I've been out of the EFI Live circle for about 10 years and haven't plugged in the V2 since 2008 . Downloaded V7.5 and V8 to my desktop, plugged in my V2 into the usb on my desktop and all I have is alternating flashing lights on position 2 and 4, the screen is dim but I can barely read "boot block upgrade." This has been going on forever....any clues? I have searched the threads but not much info on my issue.

    It appears like you've just updated the FlashScan V2 boot block from V2.04.xx to V2.05.xx using the built in boot block upgrade process.

    Run the V8 software and select the menu option: Help->Documents->FlashScan->Upgrading FlashScan.pdf
    That document will step you through the process. You appear to be already up to the stage mentioned on the bottom of the fifth page (sorry there's no page numbers, you'll have to count), where it says:

    The upgrade process will only take about 5 seconds to complete, then the screen backlight will be turned off. The final message: BOOTBLOCK UPGRADE IN PROGRESS DO NOT INTERRUPT will still be visible. Once the backlight has been turned off that message no longer applies.

    So really all you need to do now is to re-program the correct firmware for the current boot block version in your FlashScan. That document will explain how to do that and what versions of each sub-system you should use.

    Note: If you select the "upgrade boot block option" when your FlashScan had a version of firmware that was not V2.04.72 (i.e. V2.04.71 or V2.04.70 etc) then you may need to use the recovery process explained in the file:
    \Program Files (x86)\EFILive\V8\Firmware\Recovery\ReadMe.txt
