No signal on display of retrofitted NBT EVO after VO coding

Hello I have tried to VO code my nbt evo headunit and have made some noob mistakes.

A little info on my retrofit I own a 2013 F30 and purchased a used NBT EVO from Europe. I do have an emulator installed as well. Head unit was working before coding but language was in German.

I tried following the coding guidelines for VO coding an F30. This is the procedure I followed

In coding under expert mode:
read FA>save fa>edit fa (this is were i changed vin number to donor vin of head unit and added options 609,6NS)>save SALAPA element>save fa>calculate fa

In VCM under expert mode:
load modified fa>calculate fa>click on master tab>write fa fp

In coding under expert mode:
Load modified fa>activate modified fa>read svt>go to nbt folder and code ecu not fdl code.

After coding finished with errors and now no signal on display is shown. The CAFD file is missing as well under the nbt2/evo folder.

I now know that i shouldn't have written the donor vin into the modified FA. Is there anything I could try to recover the Head unit?

Please help.

Thanks in advance

But you still see the nbt2 in Esys?
Then you only have to "Detect Caf for Swe" on the right side.
Click on the Button, choose the newest cafd and click OK.
Then try again to code the nbt2.

Why did you write FA changes to VCM and then Load FA?
