Just FYI
I have a 2017 330 and got the notice to upgrade to 4g. The dealer updated the car with no hardware but updated the software I guess. When I got home I tried to reflash bm3 and it bricked my car… pft support got me back in business but now I can't use bm3 unless I get a bench unlock. I'm so bummed

Bummer...glad PTF were able to get your car running. There seems to be no logical explanation regarding who gets their DME locked and who doesn't. Just had this update done last week (hardware and software) and was able to flash stage 1. It was a tense few minutes because I was expecting the flash to fail...
What i-step did they update you to?

Well the plot thickens....mine was updated to F20-21-03-545 as well and I was able to flash the MHD tune. Not sure if it makes a difference, but I've had a bench unlock done before late last year when some warranty work was done and the car was updated to F20-20-11-540 which locked the DME and the MHD flash would fail at 4%. Maybe the bench unlock "code" didn't get wiped...
