    I love how detailed the whole BB flash is. I would love to try it on the e90 vs my protune but this kind of crap worries me.

    Is there a wiki or anything more than some forum posts? I'm not going to buy/rent a cable to find out I need to buy multiple random $#@!ty laptops because no one has documented anything.

    Good luck OP. Why don't you just buy a used cobb they are cheaper than buying lap tops, cable, and a tow. Is there a reason you want to use the BB flash?

    Is know performance wise my protune is probably better but I would like to see if the car drives any different...

    What exact model and windows version did you use to flash? At least this way people would know there is one known good laptop that they can search for on craigslist, ebay, etc.

    Terry isn't developing the Backend flash in Cobb anymore. The Single turbo backend flash is strictly usable with the BBflash.

    So basically if you want to use JB4 with a single you have to go BB Flash, got it.

    It's a free flash program that came about thanks to the community pulling together. It isn't a supported product, nobody is making any money off it.

    You should be happy it exists at all.

    it was created on your forum. the fact you don't want to support it in any way amazes me. make a wiki, faq, etc. all i hear is issues not success with it. obviously only the people with issues post.

    unless I am mistaken 90% of your traffic is N54 dependent. Make this the home of the BB flash dude.

    You keep saying you want to see it for other models. none of that will happen if you don't support it.

    but wtf do I know.

    So true, it amazes me it's even called BB Flash when BB doesn't even have a sub-section with the actual program listed to download....I mean is it that hard to make a couple basic Stickied threads in a subsection just for the BB Flash? It's suppose to be open source right? Yet no thread with the open source posted for people to improve it?

    People that are improving it are smart enough they don't need it force fed to them. Its called the BB flash because the BB Community put it together.

    The issues are always with 2007 cars. If you have a 2007, find an AMD computer (laptop or desktop) to flash with or a shiny new 4th gen Haswell Intel with at least the core i5. Also have a strong charger, not a trickle charger. Other computers might work but it's a crapshoot.

    If you have a 2008+ that uses DCAN then flash with whatever you want.

    I have an acer netbook worked with zero issues

    ID ecu
    initial read
    verify bin
    than flash


    maybe people try the read or write while not in aux mode? I recall when I finished the read the car was no longer in accessory mode?
    For me it was very straight forward and simple.

    "You gave me a free way to flash my car now also answer all my questions and take care of everything relating to it at once as I DEMAND IT!"

    Why don't you go suck a @#$%? If you have a problem with the program don't use it and go pay for whatever support you need, how about that? I see plenty of users answering questions and helping others. At no point did anyone say the program would be supported. Use it at your own risk. What's so hard to understand?

    THERE IS A WHOLE SECTION DEDICATED TO N54 FILES. What else do you want? An N54 parade? The whole forum to be dedicated to it?

    Since the word DOWNLOADS and clicking on it confused you so much here you are: http://www.bimmerboost.com/vbdownloa...&downloadid=37

    Do you need me to send someone over to your house to teach you how to click on the link provided as well?

    Winner.

    This is well established. Early 2007 cars have issues and there really isn't much we can do about that. The solution is to use a computer with an AMD processor which does not seem to run into issues.

    Everyone else has been using it fine. If you have a problem with any of this literally fist $#@! yourself.

    no, we don't want YOU to answer anything, we want a dedicated subforum for the COMMUNITY to pool resources more efficiently..? How is that not logical?

    a subforum with a sticky along the lines of 'k-line (2007) N54's need an AMD CPU to use this' lol

    The N54 sub-forum of BimmerBoost isn't enough for you to discuss the BimmerBoost flash? Really?

    Not if it's going to expand/be developed.. or people want to ask specific questions or find specific answers.. have you ever tried to dig through an ancient stickied megathread with several thousand posts? it's $#@!.


    and that's true, the one true sticky.

    Have you ever tried to develop a free flash program for a car and then have douchebags complain they don't have free support to go with it?

    and that's the true, the one true thing about people. It's never enough.

    Sticky, again, NO ONE WANTS FREE SUPPORT

    no one is asking you to do a thing, just a subforum so the community can support it, you know, like was the original intent?

    It's not even a lot of work, it's actually probably less because you won't have to have these arguments...

    actually.. wait.. are you implying since you're not allowing any kind of support network driven by the community.. you're going to demand paid support? some sorta subscription service? That's the only other option, or getting the BB flash made was a complete massive waste of time.

    Right back at ya...I guess you are too $#@!ing lazy to make a subsection for something with your name on it....and I'm the retard....OK no one is asking for a fully supported software, just a central location to discuss to it, a little organization on the forum it was created at....

    Sticky, again, NO ONE WANTS FREE SUPPORT

    no one is asking you to do a thing, just a subforum so the community can support it, you know, like was the original intent?

    It's not even a lot of work, it's actually probably less because you won't have to have these arguments...

    actually.. wait.. are you implying since you're not allowing any kind of support network driven by the community.. you're going to demand paid support? some sorta subscription service? That's the only other option, or getting the BB flash made was a complete massive waste of time.
    It was a $#@!ing waste of time....it benefits of a handful of people and only for the short term, it will probably just turn into a free flash program made for Terry to use for the JB4 backends which is all it is at this point....I mean, at least HE has a thread for it on his forum...

    Have you ever tried to develop a free flash program for a car and then have douchebags complain they don't have free support to go with it?

    and that's the true, the one true thing about people. It's never enough.
    Since was does making a simple subsection constitute full support? Are you $#@!ing serious? It's like putting free air at a gas station, but behind the dumpster, then having to move that dumpster everytime you need free air, then the guy at the counter not figuring out why people are complaining cause it's free....

    You don't get it....you're an idiot...you really are...this just proves it. Why can't you just admit you dropped the ball on this one, post up the $#@!ing subsection and be done with it? Your search tool sucks, and only way to try and get any localized info on the BB flash is to do a search and try and scrounge info.

    Winner.

    This is well established. Early 2007 cars have issues and there really isn't much we can do about that. The solution is to use a computer with an AMD processor which does not seem to run into issues.

    Everyone else has been using it fine. If you have a problem with any of this literally fist $#@! yourself.
    So several months from now,you expect people to find this thread discussing what laptop they should use for their car and BB flash? yeah that makes sense....
