Is the Thor adapter the only option to flash or can we use a wired solution?

Been Friday here for 18 hours now... No updates on Google Play and the cable I use for MHD does not do the job.

Patience, patience.......

They updated their website!

Super license for zf8 is a little pricier :/ $350 EUR

I also don't see any mention of a general zf8 license? Possibly forcing us to go with the super license out of the gate... Whatever, was gonna buy that anyway 😆

Edit: Yup, zf8 is super license only, found this in the new xhp manual:
"Please note, that the General Flash License is only
available for 6-Speed models!"

there was an update in the google store i updated it
connected my car using the k/dcan inpa cable from amazon and the usb to ctype adapter that came with my samsung note phone and worked like a charm

bought the license, it took about 9mins to install then 1 min to flash the stg

i am worried now... now read that its a 3 step process for the first time but it wasnt for me? i didnt see backup. All i got was connect-install-then it says u are ready to flash- so i went and flash the stg.

when i go to the options under misc. i see Flash Stock so im guessing it auto backups when stg flash was installed hmm im not sure but its there

ok good, just wondering cuz in the manual process was a bit different, i guess they got rid of the process for easier use


now have to drive at least 50 miles for the transmission to adapt then push it to the limit how it feels , 50 miles is too long haha

Thanks! Can you let us know what devices you're using to flash?

Would love some feedback on 3rd and 6th gear torque limits and if you're able to stay in sport/sport+ with DSC off

Seems a lot of money - would maybe have been tempted but not at that cost.
