" Flashing of vehicle ECU's through the OBD-II (on board diagnostics) port is not exactly anything new. Even flashing from a mobile device is not new but seeing it accomplished on such a wide scale and compatible with any android device certainly is a step forward. OE Tuning is utilizing the Droid Personal Flasher to deliver tunes. The way it works is the device is tied to a tuner and that tuner can provide a maximum of four files for the user to flash whenever they decide to.
A total of four files is a bit limiting as is the device being tied to a single tuner. That means if you want to use the device to flash files from different companies to compare them you would need a new device since it is VIN locked and the files are available through the Droid Personal Flasher back end.
This is not exactly a free form flashing tool but no doubt one will come in time as Flashtec who makes the device and backend is obviously trying to lock this down for their own benefit. With how much piracy there is in the tuning industry who can blame them?
Regardless, this is definitely a step forward and with the wide number supported platforms this certainly is an interesting tuning development. "
