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

V8 Software: V8.2.5 Build 321

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 321 Enhancements

  • Allow searching for partial checkusm values. That allows searching for CVN (Calibration Verification Numbers) for those controllers that embedd the CVN in the checksum value. 

Build 320 Enhancements

  • Multiple scan or tune files can be opened at the same time by selecting multiple files in Windows Explorer and dragging them onto the main V8 window. Note: right clicking in Windows Explorer and selecting Open, does not support opening multiple files, only a single file at a time can be opened that way.
  • Added new tab page [F7: Licenses]->[F5: Convert] to make it easier for AutoCal customers to apply license conversions issued by their tuner.
  • Added new option in EFILive Control Panel [F7: Licenses] tab page to allow tuners to change AutoCal's maximum number of VIN slots for any AutoCal linked to the tuner's FlashScan device.
  • Added new option in EFILive Control Panel [F7: Licenses] tab page to allow tuners to generate a remote code that can be sent to their customers so that the customer can remotely update AutoCal's maximum number of VIN slots for any
  • AutoCal linked to the tuner's FlashScan device.
  • Added "EFILive Explorer" shortcut link to main screen of EFILive Scan and Tune.
  • Added "EFILive Control Panel" shortcut link to main screen of EFILive Scan and Tune.
  • Added option to allow tuners to change the maximum number of VIN slots allowed on their customer's linked AutoCal devices.
  • Added PID FCSF "Fuel Composition Sensor Frequency" for controllers LS1B, E37, E38, E40 and E67

Build 318 Enhancements

  • Added extended descriptions for PIDs with "state encoded data" such as: FUELSYS. Descriptions are now displayed alongside the cryptic codes.

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 320 Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the segment number meta data stored in VPW based controllers' *.ctz files. Previously the segment numbers were not being stored when reading the controller.
  • Enabled T87A scanning and OBDII info support.
  • Fixed PID RPM24x from reporting a wrong or no value.
  • Fixed pass-thru logging so that frames are only saved when all PIDs have been received. Previously the scan tool was logging frames up to 4x too fast which cause 3 duplicate frames to be logged for every actual frame received.

Build 318 Bug Fixes

  • Renamed the CMD enhanced PID: AAT to AAT_B to resolve name clash with the generic AAT PID. Previously logged CMD data files that included the enhanced AAT PID will not display correctly.
  • Fixed V8 pass-thru data logging not working on VPW based controllers.
  • Fixed Cummins "Fast CAN Mode".
  • Fixed the "Save As..." option not defaulting to the file's original folder.
  • Some custom DMA PIDs were being incorrectly scaled after the MAF re-scaling options were recently added. E.g. for E38 controllers VSS_M and SCALCORVE_M were being incorrectly scaled.

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: V2.07.119 (Jul 13, 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 117 Enhancements:

  • Added remote start/stop data logging capability via the S1 12V input switch.

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 119 Bug Fixes

  • Fixed some GM controllers that could not be licensed when flashing using FlashScan in standalone mode or in pass-thru mode from EFILive V8 (AutoCal is not affected, EFILive V7 is not affected).

Build 118 Bug Fixes

  • Fixed PID scaling for MAF, MAP, EQR and O2V when recording freeze frame data in the "Record All Diagnostics" option.
  • Fixed PID values displaying as minimum or default values in freeze frame data if the PID is selected for data logging.

Build 117 Bug Fixes

  • Fixed problem where *.ctz tune files are incorrectly deleted from the FlashScan or AutoCal device after a failed flash followed by a failed read.

Build 329 Enhancements: 
  •  Added option to edit labels for calibrations that support editable axis labels. Right click on the calibration and select "Edit Row Labels" or "Edit Col Labels".
  • Out of range cell value are now displayed with a black border. The red border used previously was difficult/impossible to see when the cell's background color was also red.
Build 328 Enhancements: 
  • Removed controllers that can't be read using the V7 software from the list of controllers available for uploading (reading). The V8 software must be used to read those controllers instead.
  • Added support for E81 controller.
  • Added "Save tuning file using template..." option.
  • The "Save" option is now enabled after modifying a log file's calculated PID selection.
  • Allow V7 tune editor to enter values larger or smaller than the EFILive pre-defined limits. You may now enter values up to the controller's physical storage limits.
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 329 Bug Fixes

  • Fixed CMC CSP5 tune files not loading.
  • Calibrations that are outside of EFILive defined ranges are no longer flagged as "out of range" and are no longer automatically modified to fall within the EFILive ranges when loading a tune file.

  • 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.
