    He meant to say you can't use it yet.

    Over in the Australia forums on 1addicts, they are talking about an issue with using the other product on Australian 1 series.

    'Stock is on the way. We are trying to get XDFs sorted for the ROMs on Australian cars. So far we have found the ROMs to be different to the common ROMs on US cars.'

    Does anyone have any idea what this is about, and how will the true open source product handle this? I am more than happy to buy a cable and do any reads you need, if that will help.

    Regards
    David

    The XDF defined tables for the Australian ROMs just need to be defined for tuner pro or other software

    Is this something anyone can do, keeping in mind I haven't coded jack since the early 90's at University, so only 20 years..... or as per my offer above, read the dme and give it to someone who knows what to do with it?

    Yes you could read your ROM and upload it, and someone with the time and experience could define it for yourself and the community.

    We could just have a tuner write a tune with Australian cars in mind. No prob.

    So, just curious, but what was the main reason behind designing this around the BT cable? Not complaining, just genuinely curious. You'd still be heroes even if you used $1000 gold stranded kimberkable.

    Were the cheaper inpa/winkfp cables too inconsistent? Are they missing certain hardware? FTDI and ATMEL chips too difficult to code for (at the moment)? It is just difficult for a layman such as myself to wrap my head around it since people have been using them (the cheaper cables) to flash modules for a while now, although i'm not sure if many have successfully flashed the DME with repeatability.

    Thanks


    edit: sorry if this was answered already
    We started researching cables that could support CAN & KLINE and discovered the one BT uses is actually a perfect fit. And we all already had one. It's not the cheapest cable out but we all figured we'd get it working with that and then down the road the next generation of open source programmers can make it work with a $20 eBay cable if they want. Having a high quality cables makes the programming easier and reduces the chances of things going wrong during a read/write.

    on a side note, this is very beneficial to the community, both tablet owners and not, because now everyone will be able to work together and hopefully fully define the ecu, how you want to flash and unflash is entirely up to the user. I haven't picked up an OF tablet yet, but still plan to for personal reasons, there shouldn't be this divide between the two camps anymore, the more heads we have digging in the ecu, the more success we will have as an N54 community. I understand many here may not like shiv, but so far he has done a solid chunk of work which deserves some credit.

    There will always be separation if Shiv continues to turn the others against the rest and use shady marketing tactics which cause people to not like him. Notice how some vendors go and promote their products and services and are truly in the middle, open to anyone. He creates a divide, this is where the issue is.

    Absolutely. It takes a lot of time to report all those posts.

    The post over in 1addicts Australia has survived for a while. We aren't as heavily monitored it would seem.

    When this goes live, I'll gladly let anyone in the Las Vegas area borrow my BT cable.

    That's one of my favorite parts about this entire project. There is nothing to be VIN locked, so you can just tune some DMEs and not have to worry about firing more money over to some company.
