what type of cable did you use (green, good white, or bad white?) and what ecu type do you have (i8a0s, ije0s, ect)?

Did you have a battery charger for the car?

Did you interrupt the flashing process by opening the doors?

Well,I got a green cable off Amazon and it works sometimes when it wants. Takes 10 times plugging in and out to get a connection. Once connected works good. But some days I am not able to gain connection to ecu at all. Just ordered another (green ) cable off eBay that is recommended by Wedge. We will see how that one does.

I have ordered another cable from the ebay seller listed in this thread earlier but after 10 days of "shipping label created" from usps I messaged him and got...

So just a heads up to anyone looking to order the cable from him. Does anyone know of another reliable source for the green board version???
I got it from him. It took over 2 weeks.

Just a quick question, I ordered my OBD cable and I will go ahead for the MHD ECU flash for the 1st time, my car it's E92 production 05/2008 and its EU specs with complains to GCC hot claimant specs VIN P193999 if it make any difference, I'm not sure if the ECU software I have different yet but so far with JB4 I'm not able to get the 6 cylinder timing with all options I8A0S or IJE0S Even my ECU is labeled MSD81,

So my questions

1- is the backup ECU will take the exact firmware copy that I have so when I flash back to stock it will be totally the same version or will restore a version already stored in the MHD?

2- do I use the same flash in the 1st post of terry or do I need to use something different for non US specs if there any difference?

3- US and EU cars different or it's the same from the flash and ECU software and same steps of flashing work for both?

OK Successful flashed....

Recharge the battery (yes I was using a batter charger in my initial flashing) and flashed the car back to stocked.

Re-flashed the car with stage 1 and I can feel the difference on the way the car pulls.

Loaded new bb E85 flash and I'm having issues with transmission shifting from park to reverse really hard. Has anyone seen this? Any idea? I have alpina flash.

This is for MHD flashing.. but the TCU isn't touched by either the MHD or the BB flash.

Yes I used the MHD to flash the BB flash. Just curious to see if it was related or my trans if failing.

I think you're confusing terms here. You are using the "backend flash". BB Flash is a different app, separate from MHD.

MHD will load MHD and BB flash maps.

I know. Just disagreeing with the terminology, as nothing makes a *.bin file a "BB Flash" map. Don't need sticky thinking we're using anything of "his".

Sorry for the confusion, I only loaded the backend flash with the mhd not the alpina flash. I had the alpina already in the vehicle for almost 8 months. I figure it out already. Thanks.

For avoiding the confusion it is best to talk about engine and transmission flashes in separate posts if not even in separate threads

Anyone else seeing any issue like this? Can't purchase the flasher.

I did, they said nothing on their side, likely the app.

Two questions as I'm going to stack an MHD flash with JB4 tomorrow afternoon...

First, is the highlighted portion above true for these MHD JB4 flashes? Or are they the same as the flashes loaded via BimmerBoost? In other words, an MHD JB4 flash should target higher boost values than a BB JB4 flash, right?

Is the E85 flash the most powerful compared to RACE and PUMP? What is the OPTIMAL fuel mixture for the E85? Will power or safety be gained by using E60+? What if I filled with pure 110 octane race gas, can this flash still be used?

Sorry for the questions, but I'm sure others have wondered the same thing.

What exactly do I need to do to run both systems? I'm completely new to this whole 'flashing' thing. I'll probably have a hard enough time as it is gathering all the parts, cables, and performing a successful flash on my own...
You can either use the JB4 with a solid map (7) + e85 backend, or set the JB4 as passive (option B) and use the stand alone MHD e85 mix map. Neither require the purchase of increased boost ceiling, which is solely needed when self tuning BINs.

1. Is you make an ECU backup with MHD, the file will automatically be used when flashing back to stock.
2. If you use directly the canned bins, on a euro car you will get the DMTL error as far as I know. There's a solution I need to talk with Terry (use .mhd maps instead of bins, and apply tuning parameters on top of a correct map for each car).
3. Flashing process is the same, there are a few minor differences between maps.

Actually the TCU error codes list is deleted.

See above. After driving a bit, did the trans went back to normal behavior?

Purchases were disabled by Google yesterday because of some missing paperwork. We are working with Google to resolve the issue and expect a fix around the first of May.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

1. Terry made MHD specific maps, and they are improved upon the BB.com maps. JB4 stays in charge of handling the boost, not the DME flash. But MHD allows better backends though more tuning options.
2. e85 flash is for minimum 50% mix (e40). For race gas, use the race flash because AFR / Fuel scalar from the e85 map are not suited for race gas.

So this won't work with European models?

It works, but throws an error code. Plenty of Euro owners (me included) flashed US canned bins, it's no big deal.
