Default Wanted: Beta Testers for 6AT/TCU Flash - 12-10-2016, 01:21 PM

Hi guys,

as some of you might have noticed, the N54/N55 platform will soon be blessed with a solution to flash the 6AT. Whoever has lots of time, can read up the whole story how this evolved here: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1125073

For those, with not that much time, here are the facts:
  • The 6HP21/6HP28 TCU has been cracked
  • The tool is named xHP Flashtool and will run on Android platform
  • Besides from OTS maps (Comfort, Sport, Race) a lot of things will be tuneable through xdf/TunerPro support
  • All you need is an old Android phone/USB-OTG Adapter and INPA cable
  • Price for the Flash Module will be around 100 USD
  • Planned Release Date for N54 platform is March 2017

We're currently searching for beta testers. Beta Phase will probably start 1 month earlier. Everyone, who wants to participate, should bring the following with him:
  • N54/N55 with 7591972 TCU. That means, a TCU that can take the Alpina flash. Older versions have different memory layout and are sadly not supported.
  • Good knowledge of INPA/NCSEXPERT/WinkFP. That means, flashing your car with WinkFP, or coding your EGS shouldn't be an issue for you.
  • Car in good shape. That means, a proper working setup and your 6AT shouldn't be beaten to death already by slipping the whole day at 30 psi.
  • No ECU hacks, like bent Torque curves. Shouldn't be necessary anymore in the future.

Whoever wants to participate, just reply or write me a PM. Some demo videos (not N54, but same TCU ) are available on Youtube!

EDIT: As so many are asking for timeline. The first release will cover 3-series N57/M57 engines, next one on the list are 3-series N54/N55. We hope to get this done til March! Other cars like 5-series, Z4.... or other engines like the V8's will be covered later.

thx,
Clemens

I would like to be a beta tester and tick all of those boxes. I can flash my map with stock torque calculation at any time.

I self-tune and would prefer to test changes of table values and have some input on an individual table basis rather than OTS map testing.

We cant flash the Alpina to our TCU. I hope we do not get skipped over when it comes time to release the app.

I'm aware of that problem and normally you would have to go back to stock, before you can attempt to flash. But I will probably insert an exception for this special situation. So the plan is, that TCU's with Alpina flash can be overwritten directly.

Would you happen to know how we identify the TCU version?
E60s can't use the Alpina flash, so are we out of luck again?

I'm interested! I currently am flasshed with Alpina. Would it be best to flash back to stock rather than overwriting?

My trans is in good shape, recently rebuild the valvebody, all new solenoids, Sonnax Zip kit, and new ZP fluid. Hoping for Alpina-like shift in M-mode (or better) and stock-like Drive. Turning off the auto up-shift would be awesome too.
