Default Running CSL software on stock MSS54HP

I have the bootsector/program/tune consistency cross-checks figured out.

I've modified CSL binary dump to run on regular MSS54HP (32300 Hardware ID) without having to flash the bootsector to CSL (32500) version.

It takes couple minute to convert back and forth between normal and CSL software.

You can watch the process using MSSFlasher here:

Paffy,

I am having a bit of a nightmare with my conversion..De soldered chips tonight and programmed files in manually 2x512kb files (CSL conversion files provided by Sli) I used a chip programmer to flash the chips and used 16bit (write top section of data first section). put the chips back on, now the throttle acutator is making a noise and I cannot connect to my dme using BMWFLASH via obd and the DME casing it getting slightly warm...Can you software help me make this painless? The chips have been off twice now and it is no easy task getting them back on..Pissed..

I have no idea what is going wrong whether I am writing in the correct format or not...The files that I have been send are they meant to match the same file which is read from the ecu (I know some softwares/BDM devices flip bytes)

I have checked the soldering and it is fine....had enough...Tried bdm but dont have the proper tap tool and dont know if my unit is reliable or not..

Help

sorry about your troubles. if you can get it into bootmode by shorting the eeprom pins, mssflasher should take care of the rest. PM for details.

Brilliant.

This was one last piece of the puzzle that has fallen. Finally, TRUE Alpha-N for the MSS54HP is available as opposed to fall-back alpha-N-like behaviour being labeled alpha-N.

For those of you with a MSS54HP who don't want the "flap", you now don't even have to remove the cover from your DME to have CSL software loaded. This is, simply stated, a HUGE development.

This is great! I'm just getting started on reflashing my 04 M3, looks like I got started at the right time, easier than ever!


This does reset the "60 flash" counter then? (why the 30/60 difference?)
edit:// nevermind, read the explanation in your other thread!

The space is limited with the 29F200 and the bootsector is way too different.

You would need to change the EEPROMs to 29f400 . You'll need to flash at least the bootsectors into the new EEPROMs, so you might as well just do the full CSL conversion including the bootsector.

Default Re: Running CSL software on stock MSS54HP

Nothing has to be done to the ECU hardware-wise. Just run the software and reset counter, wipe your adaptations memory completely, flash/read tunes, flash software, read the full ECU etc.
