I've sent copies of the write side of the app to every one that PM'd me and had the tools to repair a PCM if something goes wrong. This is now in their hands to test the app and see how stable it is and what issues they may run into.

I expect there will be at least 2 or 3 revisions tested before moving to a public release.

The version being tested is 100% functional for the P01 and the P59 and supports 2 of the 3 possible recovery modes.

Type of flash supported:
Calibration flash - what you would use while making changes to a pcm generally for tuning purposes.

Complete Operating system flash - This will allow you to flash your PCM to an OS that has XDF support in the event your OS isn't support yet. This could also be used if switching to a custom OS for flex fuel or boost support but currently XDF's that have these type of features are still in development.

PCM Cloning - This will take a pcm and flash the entire bin file to it including learned crank sensor values, vats data, vehicle ID code(BCC) , Vin number, Seed/Key, Serial number etc. Once the pcm is flashed it will be identical in every way possible to the pcm that the source file was read from.

Once this is released It would be STRONGLY advisable that you would clone what ever PCM you plan to work with and put your original pcm up some place safe. This was if at any point something does go wrong you can still put your original pcm back in with out disabling your vehicle. Lets face it your dealing with a free app on one of the most unreliable software platforms in the world(Android) using hardware that was never expected(or intended) to be used in this manner and be editing your bin file with Tuner Pro definitions that are user contributed and have had every value in the Xdf calculated by hand. This is going to be the equivalent of playing Russian roulette to start with. As many people can tell you, I will do every thing I can to help those that run into problems but there are bound to be some unlucky soles before the smoke clears so making sure you have your stock PCM to fall back on in case you end up being one of the unlucky users is still going to be your best bet.


If there is any one else that is capable of recovering a pcm and would like to test the pre-release version of this shoot me a PM and I'll get a copy out to you.

Not much to report yet, have sent out about a dozen copies of the write side of the app. No one has come back screaming that anythings broken or blown up yet and about half of the people testing have given positive feedback but I get the impression that people are not using it all that much. So for now it's still just a waiting game while I sit here waiting to collect feedback.....good or bad.

Made some improvements that optimized things a bit more and was able to speed things up a bit. Here's a calibration flash that's done in real time...as in this has not been speed up, its exactly how it was recorded from my phone.
