Hi Shawn
Got the same error message again. Im now super stuck. Let me explain what I did :
I added HO-Wort = HIFI to the FA, saved it to the car, following the instructions on the forum.
I then Read FA, Activate FA, Read SVT (VCM), Right Clicked HU-NBT, and clicked Code.
The screen flashed a bit, then went dead, so i tried to code again using the backup FA and i got that error message. Screen/Radio still dead. Do I need to code the combox for HO-WORT = HIFI as well? Do you perhaps know what the combox ECU name is because i cant see anything remotely resembling combox in the list of 12 ECUs. I have never seen this CAPD error message before. I have done this loads of times and it just works.
I will add that the last coding wasnt done by me - I had NBT2 and a touch screen and new KOMBI unit added by an installer in London and they coded - i am thinking it may be something they have done. Any help would be much appreciated!

You have "file for cafd_00001ef6-006_040_006 not found [C012]" error?

Ok I reinstalled everything from scratch and it coded the HU properly (I think) but the screen is still blank. Is it perhaps because there are other ECUs I need to code? Does the TCB and ICM need to be coded?

IF you have BLANK SCREEN, its likley because your resolution or size is not set correctly.

If this is factory fitted hardware, just return FA to original state, and VO Code Head Unit.

Unfortunately its not. The HU_EntryNav has been replaced with HU_NBT2 and the screen with an 8.8in touch screen, so I think I will probably have to redo from scratch then. Damn LOL

You need to code these based on your screen:

CID_APIX_MODE
CID_COLOR_DEPTH
CID_COM_MODE
CID_RESOLUTION

No, I don't have Coding List. Coding is ECU specific, not Chasis specific, and Cheat Codes are builtin to E-Sys Launcher or E-SysX.

Shawn,

I've done some coding work on GM LS1 ECMs, but I'm new to BMW ECUs.

I'm looking at this cable (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BH3PTGK), which comes with the software and data files, along with links to both. Does anyone know if this is a good cable? Is there a better cable I should be looking for?

Has anyone tested this on a 4-series (2017 F33)? I'm guessing it will work, as the 4-series is quite close to the 3-series, and probably uses many (all?) of the same ECUs.

Please PM links for current software & data files. If I change cables, most don't come with the software.

I've got an old/retired laptop with an ethernet port (Intel NIC) that I'll be using, unless a USB network adapter can be used. My understanding is that Win-7 is a better choice than Win-10. What's the current philosophy WRT 32-bit vs. 64-bit OS? I'm thinking that the software is compiled into 32-bit, but that should work just fine on a 64-bit OS. Of course, the hardware can run either.

I need to get some familiarity with the interface, then code for my new brakes (https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh...4&postcount=12).

Thank you for your time.

Cable should be fine.

USB x LAN Adapter works fine with Cable.

Win7/10, 32/64-Bit makes no difference.
