Thanks. Just so I can be sure I understand correctly, can you verify that this would be the correct procedure for updating/resetting a used JB4 G5 ISO?
  1. Physically install used JB4 in vehicle and start ignition.
  2. Install latest interface on laptop.
  3. Connect JB4 and enter settings to match stickied thread.
  4. Upload latest firmware (ISO 28).
  5. Verify settings still match stickied thread settings.
  6. Disconnect and enjoy a fully reset and updated JB4?

Thanks!

Many settings can only be reset via the wheel controls, not all boards are G5 or ready to accept ISO firmware, etc. But sounds like a good starting point. Also keep in mind we don't provide direct support or warranty for used tunes so you'll be mostly on your own. But you can still use the support forum to search, ask questions, etc.

I didn't know that, thanks for the heads up. I wound up ordering a new one last evening.

can you please PM me the most recent interface software installer that did have this feature?

The amount of time you spent complaining about this you could have reset everything under user settings and through the steering wheel controls quite a few times. you bought it used to save some money so now take a couple mins and reset everything manually. As Arnold said, Stop whining!

Caused more problem than it solved since default settings change by firmware version, but some people don't update their interface for years at a time. So they were often out of date.

We can't implement the default settings by having them load up their firmware first? I know I was speaking to you about this before too.

Just looked at the n54 sticky thread... It shows defaults for Map6 and WMI (User Adjustment and WMI tabs) but doesn't show the defaults for all the in-wheel settings. Unless it's described somewhere else in the remaning 458 pages of that sticky thread

I just installed my JB4 on Tuesday. I think I screwed up settings 10, 11 and 12. Would be nice to have the factory listing for the wheel controls.

I am particularly curious on defaults for speedo menu 3, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15.

I don't have 2-step rev for option 8 or meth stuff for option 9 so I want to make sure I did not change those values by mistake.

Still think having a factory reset option would be nice. Don't understand why people bother support because of side effects of factory reset. Everyone should know what factory reset means. It would be nice to reset JB4 before I sell it, of to reset right after installing when buying 2nd hand.

Awesome . And my gut feeling is that for menu 6 are all off for MaxCool, Warmup flash, DTC, Auto radio, gauge sweep. Am I correct?

Those are toggles so you can't see the setting from the menu.

An idea: when you position the menus on a toggle-able item, JB4 indicates turn signals on for enable, turn signals off for disabled. It'd be useful for "displaying" current settings for BEF mode, coolmax, stealth, sweep, canflap, DTC, warmup flash, etc. Certainly easier than experimentation.

That is a good idea, we're a bit limited on space in that part of the programming but will see what we can do.

I'm laughing as I read the repeat 'I want a reset option' comments.
It makes sense that you have to 'configure it for your platform'.

I had the same initial response when I first got my JB4, but after some time, I see the logic to not having a button that assumes a platform and configuration type.

Even if there was a reset button, you still need to set it up for your usage.

Bottom line - Use the latest Firmware. Configure it for your application. Enjoy.

I've never known anything like this to not have a reset defaults option. As I said before, I'm not the first owner of the JB4 so now I have to go through the whole steering wheel menu and compare against what's on the web site. I really just want it to factory condition including any learning/adaptation. Unless the way a default reset is implemented incorrectly, resetting to defaults is a very handy option.

Default settings do NOT get reset during an update or if you had custom settings you wanted to save...they'd all get changed.
