It does not mater what version of ecu it is I can do it, as long as I got few stock files from the same type of ecu and one tuned file, I can make a nice tunable feature. And you can copy/paste maps from one to another. And this is not my software I am making a definition file that would make a universal software work with these ecus.

This is awesome to see that my thread is alive and well. It can only be good for the BMW community/including vendors for all of us to be able to tune our cars and upload the tunes ourselves.

Keep up the great work...I can help tuning 100% I just cant help when it comes to understanding HEX code and looking up maps.

raymond you have sent me bunch of different files one ms41 other ms42, this does not do me any good. I need proper downloaded flashes from cars that have same system. For example few different files from ms42 cars. And posibly one tuned one to realy be able to make tunable file. For now I am out of those and unable to create it.

I did manage to make a file for tuning MS50.1 ecus that are for E46 M3 motorsport, You can download the files here: http://www.chiptuners.org/forums/download.php?id=6603

Yes, that tool is good, and your downloaded flash looks correct.

Do I have to have a KWP2000 to be able to pull files or flash my ECU? Or can I connect my laptop with a serial to OBD2 connector and use some open source software out there to do the same thing?

I am glad this discussion is going on and am happy to support its development in any way. I love my e46, but just hate it when people want $300 just to give me five more horsepower from a conservative tuning upgrade. Besides its always more fun when you can figure things out yourself.

Plus I think the biggest benefit in doing all this for us drive-by-wire owners is to make the pedal response faster and more aggressive. Bav Auto is selling a dongle to install under the pedal to do this for $400 bucks. I'm an electrical engineer and know a simple couple of mods in the software can do the exact same thing.

Thanks guys

It is going along, looks like the best way to flash the ECU is to have it on the bench with 14 volts going to it. The battery power in the car 12v or sometimes below that with key on would make it fail flash sometimes.

I created the software for tuning and another person is testing it now so I will let you know soon as I find out more.

For anyone looking to source the bench being referred here is a little information about them and where to source them. I have watch this being done on my DME at least 7 times so I know the entire process.

BDM100 is the specific Bench tool and it's not a cheap however below i will give you specific places to purchase them. The bench itself is going to difficult to find alone. I suggest using EVC website to determine which tools needed for your specific dme and use the alternative sources to find it cheaper. Again a few sources are below.

EVC-the most expensive source
http://www.evc.de/en/product/ols/bdm/default.asp

Allcartuning- authorized dealer of EVC
http://www.allcartuning.com/en/main/...vc-bdm100.html

Of course your chin source
http://chiptunawarehouse.com/ecutool...m100-p-88.html

And last Ebay- cheapest place to find everything you need.

This is why Conforti requires the use of a battery charger when using his Shark injector. Dealers will do the same thing when updating software. As you have observed, without a stable minimum voltage, the flash will fail.

An alternative is hooking the car up to a charger while doing this no? As I prefer not to have to get into bench flashing.

Well i am not sure if it's DME specific or not but for example we tried hooking my car up to a charger and also charging the battery etc... No matter what we did i had to remove the DME and mount to a bench to flash it. Again, I believe this is only with the MS45 DME however mine is the MS45.1 so maybe it's just specifically related to MS45.1 DME's.
This was 4 years ago when i determine this also. Karl (AA) said this is what they were doing at the time too they may have came up with a better process after 4 years i am not sure.

Battery chargers only give output of 12.5 volts, you got settings of low and high volts and it makes noise in electrical system. You need at least 14 volts and about .8amp, so the best thing is to remove it and make a power adaptor from some old apliance that outputs 14-16 v.
