EFILive is pleased to announce Public Release software dated December 2016 is now available. The Check for Updates functions are now active. 

 

IMPORTANT:

The EFILive software and firmware version numbers have been updated as follows:

  • Version 7.5 software: V7.5.7 to V7.5.8 and again to V7.5.9.
  • Version 8 software: V8.2.2 to V8.2.3 and again to V8.2.4.

Those version number changes reflect two major compatibility updates:

The *.ctz and *.coz tune files have been updated.
Any tune file saved with one version cannot be opened using a previous version. A tune file saved with a previous version can be opened with a later version. For the purpose of determining tune file compatibility, the third digit of the software version number is used.

The *.obj read/flash script files have been updated.
If you create a *.bbx quick setup file for your customers' AutoCal devices using this software and firmware version, then you must ensure that the users' AutoCal devices are also using this software and firmware version.

V8 Software: V8.2.4 Build 309

Build 309 Enhancements
  • Added cam angle PID for E80 controller.

Build 308 Enhancements

  • Added "Frames" and "Elapsed" columns to the quick start lists in EFILive (also in the [F8: Tools]->[F2: Search] lists). Frames shows the number of frames in a data log file and Elapsed shows the elapsed time between the first and last frames in the log file.
  • Added [V8 Scan] and [V7 Scan] quick folder select buttons in the [F8: Tools]->[F2: Search]->[Browse] tab page.

Build 307 Enhancements

  • Removed right-margin indicator from PID expression editor window.
  • Added a quick-insert option to insert PID names into expressions for user defined calculated PIDs in the calculated PIDs editor.
  • Added support for updated scaling for generic PIDs: MAP, MAF, EQRATO and WO2Sxx.
  • Added PID validation in V8 pass-thru logging.
  • Added option in [F8: Tools]->[F2: Search] to allow searching tune files for all segment part numbers not just operating system number.

Build 305 Enhancements

  • Changed the order and display names of the supported controllers' right-click menu selection. The new order groups similar controllers together. The display names are now more accurate, concise and easier to locate.
  • Split the *.pdf documentation files into subfolders on the Start menu and in the Help menu.
  • Added support for CAN integration of the AEM UEGO wide band controller. Select the AEM as a transmission controller to log the wideband PID WO2S11 which includes sub PIDs EQ_RAT11 (lambda) and WO2S11V (millivolts).
  • FlashScan icon displayed in the system tray is now a generic representation of both FlashScan and AutoCal devices.
  • Updated E39 boot loader software to correctly identify recently released E39A controllers.
  • Added E39A as a unique controller for pass-thru scanning, black box logging and OBD operations. Previously selecting E39 covered both E39 and E39A.
  • When a read-only *.bbx quick setup file is loaded, the fact that it is read-only is now indicated with the text "(file is "read-only" and cannot be modified)" which is displayed in red after the filename.
  • Added support for new GM controller security options.
  • AutoCal will no longer "auto-link" to the file being flashed when AutoCal is not already linked to a FlashScan device. To remotely link an un-linked AutoCal use the EFILive Control Panel -> [F7: Licensing]->[Link]->[Generate Remote-Link Code] option.
  • Added an option to "downgrade" the security capabilities of secondary FlashScan devices. Downgrading the security capabilities allows you to distribute additional FlashScan devices that can be used to link AutoCals and save files for those AutoCals but that cannot be used to remove security settings on files nor unlink AutoCals.
  • Added a new attribute to all FlashScan devices called "Protected Number". The protected number is used to implement the options described in the previous bullet point.
  • Changed error message dialogs when trying to open *.coz files so that they now explain that *.coz files cannot be viewed or edited - instead of just showing a generic "unsupported file type" error message.

Build 304 Enhancements:

  • Split template properties into Scan and Tune sections so that unique templates can be configured for both Scan and Tune files.
  • Added tag <jd> to filename templates. <jd> returns the Julian Day of the year.
  • Added option to allow sequence number to be 1, 2, 3 or 4 digits.
  • Added option to allow *.coz filenames to use auto-incrementing filenames.
  • Added option to prevent auto-incrementing sequence number from being dynamically updated when changing folders in the "File Save" dialog.


Build 308 Bug Fixes:

  • Tune file comments can now be edited after removing security restictions.
  • Some E84 operating systems were not being recognized correctly which prevented some E84 tune files being opened.
  • Renamed PID TCBVP (Turbocharger Boost Vacuum Pressure)  to TCBGP (Turbocharger Boost Gauge Pressure).
  • Fixed the "Do not show this again" option on the "Read or Flash Failure" warning, checking the option did not suppress the message display.
  • Changing the display units of a PID in the V8 scan tool (on the data, gauges, charts or maps tab pages), followed by opening the Edit->Properties window, followed by changing the same PID's units again can sometimes result in the wrong units being displayed or in an access violation.

Build 307 Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed search footer in some list views which was incorrectly displaying duplicate or partially duplicate copies of itself.
  • Gauges configured to display US Customary units (i.e. mph, psi, °F etc) were incorrectly displaying metric values.
  • Chart auto-scaling was not working after data logging has stopped and before any range selection is made.
  • Fixed Cummins CMD operating system numbers being displayed incorrectly in the [F4: OBD] window.
  • Hardened VIN licensing to detect and prevent allocating VIN licenses with corrupt serial numbers.
  • PID FSST:FCLA was showing closed/open loop the wrong way around.
  • Most DMA PIDs were not logging their correct values in V8 pass-thru.

Build 305 Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed [F4: OBD]->[Tests] results not showing up when a transmission controller was detected.
  • Tune file comments and history were not being displayed.
  • Restored icons to main menu items.
  • Filenames longer than 130 characters can cause "Access Violation" when displayed in the list of "Recent Items" on the main window.
  • Scroll bars were not displaying or not displaying the correct size on dashboard property editor windows.
  • Fixed "Access Violation" when loading a dashboard with calculated PIDs to be displayed, but those calculated PIDs were not selected in the currently open log file.
  • Cummins (CMD/CME) operating system numbers were not displaying the last 2 digits on the [F4: OBD] window.
  • Fixed pass-thru scan tool not detecting controllers under some conditions when starting a data log.
  • Fixed [Yes/No] dialog boxes in EFILive Explorer that would repsond as if the user clicked [Yes] when the dilaog box's red close button was used to cancel the dialog.
  • Re-enabled calculated PID function sum() which had been disabled.
  • Re-enabled calculated PID function damp() which had been disabled.
  • Fixed Access Violation when changing the name of a calculated PID while a log file is loaded that displays that same calculated PID.
  • Optimized log file loading to only compute calculated PIDs once the entire file had been loaded.
  • Fixed fault when BBX flashing a *.coz file for a P12 controller.
  • Fixed "Index out of Range" error when clicking on the [Copy] button in the [F7: Licenses] window.
  • Changed all occurrences of "wideband" to "wide band".
  • Fixed "Perform Test Flash Only" default setting not being set correctly on the [F6: Cal-Flash] and [F7: Full-Flash] tab pages.

Build 304 Bug Fixes:

  • When editing the filename in the the "Save File" dialog, automatic updates to the auto-incrementing sequence number can cause the filename to disappear or to change unexpectedly.

 

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

FlashScan/AutoCal Firmware: V2.07.107 (Nov 21, 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.

Build V2.07.106 Enhancements:

  • Added "Record Diags" option to AutoCal simple menu.

Build V2.07.106 Enhancements:

  • Added support for updated scaling for generic PIDs: MAP, MAF, EQRATO and WO2Sxx.
  • Increased AutoCal VIN license limit from 8 to 221 to match FlashScan.

Build V2.07.104 Enhancements:

  • Added descriptions for negative repsonse error codes in the range $0300..$037F.

Build V2.07.103 Enhancements:

  •  None

Build V2.07.104 Bug Fixes:
