EFILive is pleased to announce April 2017 Bela Release-1 is now available. The Check for Updates functions are now active.

V8 Software: V8.2.4 Build 317

Known Issues:

Issue 1 When logging DMA PIDs (i.e. PIDs whose names end with "_M" or "_DMA"), if the ignition is switched off for an extended period while data logging but data logging is not terminated, then when the ignition is switched on again the data log automatically continues. However the DMA PIDs may no longer return valid data.

Workaround: EFILive recommends stopping the data log and restarting the data log when switching off the ignition for extended periods.

Issue 2 When Black Box Logging PIDs from an ECM and TCM simultaneously and a PID is selected from the transmission controller (TCM) that has an identically named PID in the engine controller (ECM), (i.e. RPM) then when the log file is opened in the V8 software for viewing, the TCM PID will be displayed as if it originated from the ECM. The PID's data will have correctly been logged from the TCM, only its name will appear to indicate that it was logged from the ECM.

Workaround: None. It is a restriction of the *.efi (V7.5 log file format). That restriction will be removed and the TCM PIDs will display their true origin once the V8 scan tool software is available

Build 317 Enhancements

  • Added two new DPF PIDs: REGENR and REGENIR.
  • Added search option to allow searching for segment checksums.
  • Optimized the "Search Entire File" to first search all files' meta data to quickly exclude any files that do not match, then and only then are the remaining files searched for other, more detailed criteria.
  • Added a new template sequence option tag <seq0> which will add a sequence number of 1 to 4 digits depending on the magnitude of the number. I.e. the number is not zero padded to a fixed number of digits.
  • Added a new template option to allow the sequence number to include the letters A..Z.
  • For CMD/CME controllers, added a new FAST CAN Mode flash option. The old FAST CAN Mode is now called "Unlimited", a new fast CAN mode has been added called "Fast" which is slightly slower but more robust than Unlimited.

Build 317 Bug Fixes

  • User selected flash options are no longer cleared when loading a new controller that may not support those options.
  • The options now remain set to the user's choice and are silently ignored if not supported on the target controller.
  • Fixed arrow keys not updating current frame when displaying [F3: Data] or [F5: Gauges] tab pages.
  • Fixed Shift+Arrow Keys not selecting chart data.
  • Fixed display issues when changing Gauges and Charts between full screen mode and windowed mode.
  • Fixed AutoCal/FlashScan device setting: "Use EFILive's Fast Can Mode" for CMD/CME controllers. Even when this option was disabled, CMD/CME flashing would still use fast CAN mode.
  • Fixed folder templates problem where new folders were not being created (if required) when using the "Save As" option for Scan and Tune files.
  • Fixed [Copy] option not working in [F3: Tune]->[F3: Calibration] display.

FlashScan/AutoCal Boot Block: V2.07.007 (Feb 07, 2014) and

FlashScan/AutoCal Firmware: V2.07.114 (Apr 02, 2017)

Known Issues

  • When logging DMA PIDs (i.e. PIDs whose names end with “_M” or “_DMA”), if the ignition is switched off for an extended period while data logging but data logging is not terminated, then when the ignition is switched on again the data log automatically continues. However the DMA PIDs may no longer return valid data. EFILive recommends stopping the data log and restarting the data log when switching off the ignition for extended periods.

Build 114 Enhancements:

  • Cal-Flash, Full-Flash and Config-Flash counters were not being updated correctly.
  • Removed the 1.7 lambda (or 25.0 AFR for petrol/gas) upper limit when displaying or logging wideband serial data.
  • Updated the ALM wideband serial interface to report as "warming up" while temperature is reported as being below 500C (932F). Once temp is above 500C the sensor's lambda/AFR value will be displayed.

Build 114 Bug Fixes

  • None.

 

V7 Software: V7.5.9 Build 324

Known Issues

  • The E92 controller's serial number is not displayed correctly in the V7.5 software. Please use the V8 software to display the E92 controller's serial number.

Build 324 Calibration Updates:

GM Gas:

  • E78 - Updates to existing operating systems.
  • E80 - Updates to existing operating systems.
  • E84 - added support for OS 12672609.
  • E38 - added support for OS 12673958.
  • T76 - added support for OS 24270721 and 24279785

GM Diesel:

  • E98 - Updated calibrations, added support for OS 55503875 and 55503892

Build 324 Enhancements: 
  • Added two new DPF PIDs: REGENR and REGENIR.
  • Added a "script compatibility mode" option that allows scripts with ambiguous labels to execute without error. This option ignores ambiguous labels and uses the first label in a table's axis that matches the label in the script. This is the way scripts used to execute in older versions of EFILive.
  • Added a new template sequence option tag <seq0> which will add a sequence number of 1 to 4 digits depending on the magnitude of the number. I.e. the number is not zero padded to a fixed number of digits.
  • Added a new template option to allow the sequence number to include the letters A..Z.

Build 324 Bug Fixes

  • Bitmasks in user defined calibrations (*.cax files) were not being applied to fields defined as 32 bit.
  • Fixed folder template problem where new folders were not being created (if required) when using the "Save As" option for Scan and Tune files.
  • Fixed installer so that the [Edit]->[Properties]->[Folders] settings are now preserved correctly during a software re-install. Previously those settings were incorrectly reset to defaults during an install.
