V8 Software: V8.2.4 Build 312

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.

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

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

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

FlashScan/AutoCal Firmware: V2.07.109 (Dec 29, 2016)

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.

Enhancements:

  • None.

Build 109 Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed error $0106 when reading FlashScan/AutoCal device settings.
  • Fixed device settings problem that cause the AutoCal splash screen to contain invalid data.
  • When re-flashing after a failed flash, FlashScan/AutoCal was incorrectly requesting that the controller be licensed again.

Build 108 Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed incorrect scaling for some controllers during black box logging for PIDs: SAE.MAP, SAE.MAF, SAE.EQ_RAT and the SAE wide band PIDs: SAE.WO2S11 thru SAE.WO2S24.

V7 Software: V7.5.9 Build 318

Known Issues

  • When opening a tune file from Windows Explorer, either by double clicking on it or right-clicking and selecting “Open” and the file cannot be opened for any reason, then no error message is displayed and the file is not loaded. To view the error that prevents the file from being opened, first start the Tune Tool software, then attempt to open the tune file; the error will then be displayed normally.

  • E82 - Added support for 2017 trucks and enhancements to existing operating systems.

GM Diesel:

  • E98 - Added support for USA 2017+ vehicles.

Build 316 Enhancements: 
  • Beta warning message now has a "Do not show this warning again." option.
  • Added segment part number and checksum comparisons when comparing two tune files.
  • Added E47 PIDs: EOP_ABS, EOP_REL, O2S_FT and O2S_FTSTAT


Build 318 Bug Fixes:

  • Updated for compatibility with firmware V2.07.109.

  • Fixed incorrect scaling for some controllers during pass-thru logging for PIDs: SAE.MAP, SAE.MAF, SAE.EQ_RAT and the SAE wide band PIDs: SAE.WO2S11 thru SAE.WO2S24.

Build 316 Bug Fixes: 

  • Script playback was crashing when running a script that referenced calibrations that were not visible on the target PC. For example: emissions calibrations that may not be visible on US based software installations.
