    BimmerBoost.com flash tentative release date set for 8/19

    Guys, the BimmerBoost.com flash will go up on 8/19. Yes, it was supposed to go out this Monday but listen closely.

    Why 8/19? Well, first of all I want to get the new version in the Alpha tester's hands so people who have experience with the flash can test it out and we can fix any issue before it gets into your hands.

    Additionally, I will enable the Downloads section uploading for the vendor user group today so Terry can upload his back end flash and any bins he wants to. That way we can make sure uploads/downloads all work seamlessly so when the file goes up and everyone accesses it the server doesn't crash and everything works as it should. After I verify the uploads work I will enable downloads for the regular member usergroup.

    You will get better support and functionality for a free product than some get from paid products. Think about that.

    I was tempted to release today but the BMW M4 news will dominate all the headlines and discussion and I intend to hit the ground running and not be lost in the shuffle. A lot of good work has gone in from those in this community and they deserve and have earned their short time in the spotlight.

    So, feel free to spread the word Click here to enlarge

    Open source ECU editing software. The possibilties could be near limitless, assuming the same passion and drive that went into the initial development is shared by the community.

    Will the source code ever be released ? I am interested to port the flash read / flash write part on Android if I have some free time in the coming weeks.

    I think klips is taking the lead on that one already.

    I've already got it running on Android. Had to write my own drivers since the ones that exist by FTDI do not work.

    I have read in CAN and K-Line mostly ported.

    I know as a developer that it's not easy at all to let go of your work for free, but if the authors would release at least the read/write source code portion of the software, great things could happen Click here to enlarge

    I apologize ahead of time for newbing up this forum/thread, but most of the time I try to dig for info on this over at e90post, stuff gets deleted. I have been following the progress here on this for the last week or so, and it sounds great. However, I am a complete car idiot and am just getting interested in tuning my car for the first time. Is it realistic to anticipate any maps for a stock e90 to get released (w/o a piggyback)? Trying to determine if I need to buy a JB4 to use a flash or not for daily driving activity. Thanks!

    The source code will eventually be released of course, yes. The Android port is something @klipseracer is working on and I don't believe he has any desire to share that source just yet but ask him if he wants help.

    Just get a Bavarian Technique (BT) cable and you are good to go to flash. You'll need a laptop tho.

    This is basically idiot proof. Instructions will be included and all you do is download the files from here you want to flash, done.

    You can also have a tuner create a file for you and flash it.

    I won't be hosting Cobb or PTF's files so please don't ask. Terry@BMS will obviously give permission to host his back-end flash but you do need a JB4 for that.

    Amateur tunes created by members here will be hosted and can be exchanged.

    Thanks guys. Unfortunately finding a BT cable is looking to be more daunting than using the flash software...

    This might be a stupid question, but I'm assuming we can use Open Flash tunes? =P

    Essentially the ability to read/write the MSD80/MSD81 ECU on your own with just a cable. No strings attached, no money, no Shiv.

    Why not just buy a bt tool? It's a good thing to have to be able to see codes, reset service indicators, etc.

    plenty of people are "stealing" Shivs maps as we speak. but he did tout it as open DME reading so he can't be mad about it, right? hey @shiv@vishnu how about properly defining the throttle tables so we can adjust your retarded top heavy response/mapping?
