Unhappy Why can't anyone crack the n54 auto TCU? - 02-21-2015, 05:30 PM

Hey guys just wondering why cant we crack this after all these years? There is flashes for older DCT cars and I see they are working on flashes for the new dct in the new M models. So what gives? Is it to time consuming? I just think they're are so many N54 autos out there that need/want this option. Just seems like a company could make a killing selling this software upgrade.

The DCT flashes you are referring to is only for the M3's afaik, there is no DCT flash available for the N54's.

Autos have the Alpina Flash available though.

I may be wrong but I thought the DCT flashes that are available for the e9x M3 are just the OEM GTS flash. Ie no one has actually cracked its TCU either.

JR tuning appears to have cracked the N54 TCU including pre 03/07 builds. Seems way too expensive however according to other posts I have read.

I don't believe that is true. People have contacted them asking if they have in fact cracked the ECU and no reply. If you look at their webpage details it is very shall we say questionable. Plenty of people claim to have done so but really only have either the Alpina flash or update to newest OEM software. This is what Level 10 was doing for a while, very nebulous claims about reflashing for performance when really just updating to new OEM software.
