Sorry about the rant but going in circles is a pet peeve.
get this: for around 15USD

plus an adapter ~ 4-5 USD for whatever android you have and it will be fine, then you can flash your car

Just as an update, I reflashed with the latest version the Stage 2 tune and I also decided to use the 93 octane flash. I mix 2.5 gal of E85 with a tank full of 91 and it works great.

You know it is good when you punch it and there is a few milliseconds of fear that hits you from the force of the acceleration. Then comes the evil grin.

Am so excited. Got my cable just now and purchased the map package. Unlocking the DME as we speak, can't wait to try!

Strange, took 45 minutes and got an error message. Tried again and took another hour even though it was continuing from 50% progress, thankfully it was successful.

Didn't have time to drive the car as it took so long to unlock. So will have to wait until tomorrow.

However, there are 3? slider settings for burble. What exactly do they mean?

Are you using a battery tender? Or charger of some kind?

I fully charged my battery the night before and left the CTEK charger on it whilst unlocking the DME.

Stupid question here: so you just buy the app and cable and thats it? Im assuming the $595 is paid on the app to unlock the flash?

You buy the App, cable and then the specific tune package you want (or the bundle).

JR will have to chime in here,
I know that he built in a safeguard which wont complete unlock and brick your ECU if any problems are detected:
Common issues with flashing
-Battery voltage needs to be high, OBD Plug Power/ECU Connection cuts if voltage drops ~13.0
-Problematic cable
-Problematic adapter between cable/phone or tablet.
-Weird glitch with phone/tablet

I used a tablet plus a cable which I used before, plus Serious battery booster pack not a trinkle charger and unlocked first shot ~45-50 mins

Yeh I'm guessing phone glitch or cable may not be top notch, who knows. Main thing is it was successful .

@x5mad Probably the main problem in your situation (long flashing time and error) was poor quality cable. Please send to support@mgflasher.com the log from your device - it is located in MGFlasher\logs folder so we can analyze the issue.
