    It's time for MHD to enter the open beta state on N55 E Series :music-rockout: You'll find below the product description. The app is in an open beta state. It is fully functional but may need here and there some polish. Currently only the stage 1 maps (stg1 and 1+ for acn91-91-93-95oct) are available. It won't take long before we add the stage 2 maps, maybe a week. So long the stage 2 maps are not available, you can purchase a stage 2 license and flash the stage 1 maps. And once the stage 2 are available, your stage 2 license will be valid for the stage 2 maps. The user guide is a good place to start, especially is you need a reliable KDcan cable (page 5 of the user guide, available in the app or at Have fun, drive safe and we're looking forward to your feedback - both in terms of logs and driving experience. The maps will quickly evolve as we get the precious community's feedback. ═══════════════ Product description ═════════════════════ MHD Flasher is the first Android handheld application to bring ECU tuning and monitoring to the BMW N55 engine for E series. The MHD Flasher reveals the good margin of power BMW left on the table with the N55 while still retaining the sophistication of the original engine management program. → Easy to install Connect any compatible Android device to your car using a standard K+Dcan cable along with an OTG USB adapter, install one of the pre-purchased MHD maps and enjoy the power and performance benefits of the MHD maps by Twisted Tuning. → Keep an eye on the tuning Monitor your engine behavior using a configurable gauges layout to keep an eye on any of the 50+ engine monitors like oil temp, boost pressure, actual load or individual cylinder ignition timing. Activate the logging mode to save up to 50 monitors to a standard CSV file for later analysis. Track issues by reading the error codes, and delete them once resolved. → Flash your ECU back to a stock anytime, as often as you need to. No ECU backup is needed. → Custom tuning support As an alternative to built-in maps, many tuners can provide advanced custom mapping for those who have higher or special performance needs. The MHD Flasher can be downloaded here: Main features description: ═══ Flasher module ═══ - Flash built-in maps (purchased separately), custom user-tuned .BIN files or JB4 flash maps. - Provides an ever growing list of handy options like PPK exhaust burble duration or cold start noise reduction. - Read / delete engine trouble codes. - Reset adaptation values (Lambda sensors, Lambda regulation, Octane rating, VANOS, Throttle, and Battery). - 4 minutes map switching; initial install time: 33 mins (this will be improved later) ═══ Monitor module ═══ - Extensive logging values list, up to 50 values at the same time. - Save logging session to .CSV files - Integrated csv log viewer - Up to 8 configurable gauges - Automatic or manual log session start. ═══ Optional MHD maps packs ═══ - Maps by Twisted tuning - Stage 1 pack. Eight maps: 4 fuel octane variants, stock / upgraded FMIC variants. - Stage 2 pack. Eight maps: 4 fuel octane variants, stock / upgraded FMIC variants. High flow downpipes recommended. - Ethanol mix map (e30). FMIC+DPs recommended. Supported vehicles: N55 equipped Exx series. !!! Important !!! Vehicle equipped with a MEVD1726 DME (built dating from around 03-2012) need a once time DME removal and bench flash to allow OBD flashing. See FAQ below. 2010-2013 135i, 135is and 335i 2013-2015 X1 xDrive 35i 2010-2013 X5 xDrive 35i 20112014 X6 xDrive 35i This racing product is for competition closed course use only. Required hardware: - 1 device running Android 3.2 and up, USB OTG compatible. - 1 K+Dcan cable. See page 5 of the user manual for a recommended cable: - 1 USB OTG cable. Price list (licenses are VIN Locked and stored by Google along your Play store account): - Flasher module: $199 - MHD maps packs: $49 each. Requires the Flasher module. - Monitor module: $69 FAQ Q: Can I test the connection before making a purchase? A: Yes, simply tap the MHD Store button. The ECU connection is checked before displaying available purchases. Q: Does my Android device need to be permanently plugged to the OBD port? A: No. Once a flash is performed you can unplug your device. Q: Do I lose my licenses if I delete the app or the Android device breaks? A: No. licenses are stored online by Google, you can use your purchases on another device as long as you use the same account on Play store. Q: Do I need to purchase a new license each time I flash a map? A: No, you can ref lash as many times as needed. Q: Is a battery charger required? A: It is highly recommended for long flashes (install, uninstall). A healthy battery will handle short flashes (map changes) fine but the use of a battery charger remains recommended. Q: How can I determine if the DME is directly flashable or needs a one time bench flash? A: got to and enter the last 7 digits of your VIN in serial number. Click Browse parts the ENGINE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM and check both CONTROL UNITS > MEVD1726 section. If the it says "No parts found matching your car." you have a MEVD172 which is directly flashable.

    Here's my 2c on my starter motor journey: I've been dealing with some intermittent starting issues over the last few weeks, having NRMA membership has been an absolute lifesaver, and i completely recommend it to everyone as it's really affordable. Since i've had 2 weeks now with no issues (touch wood), i'm happy to share the solution incase it might help someone else. My symptoms were only ever on hot starts, meaning it would fire up everytime on cold starts, but after a drive (medium/short) it would intermittently not want to start at all.. no crank, no click, nada... all lights would turn on, battery reading as fine and normal.. NRMA was called many times, and a jump start would have her up and running again - first time, every time! Searching online, there are a few things that could cause this, mainly being bad battery, bad earth/grounding, starter motor, battery cables, push button and gremlins.. I scanned the car using the Schwaben scan tool, and picked up this code: A0B4. Seeing that it's related to the 'starter operation' i made an educated punt on the starter motor first. Looking for starter motors online, they are a pretty hefty price point brand new for OEM, and even the second hand and reconditioned options are fairly expensive... The warranty also for brand new is only 12 months i think, and the second hand options offer no warranty or 3 months - pretty weak periods. I opted to go for an aftermarket option on eBay priced extremely well ($184 DELIVERED) and offering a whopping 5 years warranty!! You also need to buy replacement bolts, as they are almunium and one time use only, part number: 12410392577 Onto the install.... The started motor is located under the intake manifold.. So for me, it was a PITA!! Having the oil catch catch setup and port injection made it unnecessarily longer than it should have been, but i managed to complete it in 3.5 hours... Removal progress.. So in true BMW fashion, anything that appears simple, never is! The starter motor is held in by 2 etorx screws (shown above), the problem is, the longer one is screwed in from the transmission pointing towards the front of the car. The shorter second bolt is located on the bottom right and screwed in from the front the back (normal). The etorx socket could not seat on the rear bolt properly, and there was no way you'd be able to angle the ratchet onto the socket to loosen it... Being an aluminum bolt, it will strip super easily, and your fucked if it does!! So i start rummaging through my tool boxes to find something, anything to get this PITA bolt out... May i present to you, the life saver!! If it wasn't for this ratchet, i would have been raging in the garage and forced the piece the car together for nothing!!! This 10mm flex head ratchet saved my sanity! Look how perfectly designed for the job it was... I wanted to kiss it! NOTE: The replacement bolts were a larger etorx, i don't remember what size ratchet i used for it, but just buy the whole ratchet set. With the sucker out, i took some comparison pics.. original unit new unit new unit Comparison While i was there, decided to give my plugs a change.. It's always such a big difference when comparing new plugs to old ones.. All the plugs look pretty similar which is a good sign..

    CAN integration was the driving force behind the M1; would be interested to see if that's still an issue since the Motiv car is the only N54 I know of running a Motec

    How are you connecting with the JB4? Are you using the cable and laptop, or cable and otg android jb4 mobile app, or wireless Bluetooth with phone/tablet jb4 mobile app? I used my old laptop, updated the jb4 windows interface , then went to the garage and connected via the cable and did the update from the 12_8 hex file I saved on the desktop. I then had some weird issue when driving . So I waited for a new release to come out. Later when hex12_9 came out I had purchased my tablet with jb4 mobile app and I was able to just update via the app ( android device saved folder). My long story is because the G5 upgrade didn't have the single turbo firmware loaded to control the Mac solenoid . It's a must to have it work. The OEM boost solenoid a runs a different hertz frequency and if I recall correctly the hex file slows down the frequency so it can manipulate the Mac . The MHD flash for single turbo is what changes your fueling so your trims do not max out , and it has spool up and vanos changes depending on what you chose ; pump, E85, custom. And just for for reference this is what my Mac looked like when I first did it. I only have this crappy picture. black is the pressure lines and blue goes off to control by Mac. I also marked W for wastegate side and T for turbo side just incase I forgot or had to rerun.

    Yes Motec will run the engine if you are building a straight race car. I dont think you will have AC or anything though

    gunda replied to a thread Jb4 mhd single turbo help please in N54
    sounds good, should also mention to not select the 3.5/4 bar map sensor option in MHD when flashing. Just set the option on the JB4 settings only. If you didn't flash the JB4 with the latest HEX file then that's a big issue right there. I would suggest you flash the HEX and then take a screen shot of your JB4 user settings for review. hope you get it all up and running soon! I just went through all this so I know the frustration lol

    Thank you terry, wouldnt my 11 psi springs be lighter than the 12-15 psi springs? Is there something to download to run the mac solenoid? I thought the backend maps control the solenoid?

    gunda replied to a thread Jb4 mhd single turbo help please in N54
    so just to confirm what you did: 1. you routed all the mac solenoid wires correct- should verify again- but CHECK 2. loaded the JB4 MHD backend flash- CHECK 3. did you flash the JB4 it self with the latest v12_9 hex? can be found in at the bottom of this thread 4. make sure when you try to flash with MHD you follow the steps ///MPOSTER stated above. I would flash back to stock first and then load up the JB4 MHD backend flash again with a full write. Also make sure you are using the correct DME flash file (example: I8A0S, IJE0S, etc...) Before changing your wastegate spring confirm all of the above is done correctly. You usually see ~2psi over your wastegate spring amount when running map 1 depending on the manifold. I have the 11.6psi spring on my manifold and usually see it open up around ~13psi.

    Map1 is the WG spring map. So it's like having no control system on there at all. If that is running 19psi then likely the spring is too tight. Different manifolds and WGs setup need different springs for whatever reason. Try going lighter a couple steps. Ideally you'd want 12-15psi on map1. That represents the "min" for tuning.

    Thanks for all the help guys, you guys are awesome. Just dont forget about me for now lol, i routed all my vac lines to the mac solenoid just like the picture. I did not load any mac solenoid download though? I just flashed the jb4 mhd backend single turbo map twinscroll that i downloaded off of n54tech. I thought the single turbo maps use the mac solenoid for boost control?

    For the reflash, I know you are probably panicking . But did you make sure you have the window down, door closed, ignition on, MHD connected indication, correct voltage for battery 12v+ etc with the battery charger going before flashing the second time?

    You of course have chosen a flash by MHD/cable to do one of these. then you need to confirm your Jb4 has this loaded 129.hex. If you haven't loaded it then your maps will be all wrong and it won't really be controlling it correctly or at all. now mechanically you have to have it plumbed like this now if you can confirm these after you get your MHD flash situated then you can log and we can see what is happening with all the values such as map, duty cycle, boost target. That spring should be okay as I run one similar and it works. Like terry has stated before. It's either something you did wrong electrically or mechanically.
