CIC/NBT FSC Generator - Windows/Linux/OSX

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Cross-post from E90Post.

This is (hopefully) a more user-friendly CIC/NBT FSC Key Generator for Windows, Linux and OSX based off of the work of the original FSC Key Generator and Intel123's certificate Patcher.

Input Files
  • The Key Generator will auto-detect and accept either Base64 (Text) or binary FSC file inputs, as well as the file type (1B or NBT). (You can over-ride the detection setting, using the "CIC/NBT" radio buttons).

Support Files
  • The Key Generator will download and use the most recent copy of the BMW "Lookup.xml" file for key generation parameters. In Linux and Windows, this file is stored in the same directory as the Key Generator. For OSX, it is stored in ~/Downloads/
  • The RSAKeys.txt file keeps a copy all submitted RSA keys. The Generator will download and use the most recent copy of the file. In Linux and Windows, this file is stored in the same directory as the Key Generator. For OSX, it is stored in ~/Downloads/

Unsupported Feature
  • It appears that the key stored in the "FSC" file pulled from the car is not necessarily unique to the car, but may be shared across multiple cars built within a short time window.

As an example:

If you would like to help out, and have pulled your FSC file, please send me a copy. I will not include or publish any car-specific information, but will add the FSC file date and RSA key to the RSAKeys.txt file. Hopefully if enough are gathered, some people will be able to create an FSC for their car, without having to pull any files.

  • Windows: https://ufile.io/kf36s
    Windows users must extract the file to a writeable directory (Desktop, Downloads, etc...), not run it from the zipped file. The generator needs to download support files (Lookup.xml and RSAKeys.txt) in order for it to run correctly.
  • Linux: https://ufile.io/5c9mj
    Linux users must extract the file to a writeable directory (~/) and will need both QT5 and OpenSSL installed.
