I have WINOLS full. It came from my HDD lol!!!! And i have every single damos for every single version. I start this post with the best intentions of posting my research. But there are some guys here that have been trying to do the same without any luck and now they are jealous, others found everything apparently 5 years ago and think he is a god or something. Anyway, Thanks for the ones who support this. And HATERS. Keep playing with winkfp.

WinKFP? I'll release BMWFlash for MS43 so they don't need winOLS and will simply be able to edit whatever they want in whatever software they want. Someone start a comprehensive MS43 thread like the MSS54 thread they have on m3forum and we'll get this going...

You know you can use WinKFP to flash a custom file right? Not that hard.

Would be very helpful for the non-M crowd, especially if it corrects checksums like the MSS54 version (though my understanding is that the MS43 checksum is somewhat complicated...)

Your title of the thread is : MS43 breakthrough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So what breakthrough did you reach? other than just using winols with MS43 damos that is available on internet sense 7 years ago.

I like what you are doing, but question - doesn't the ecu have a limit on the amount of times it can be flashed?

If you program with winkfp you can disable UIF and this counter will stop. Updating with winkfp DO NOT reset flash counter. If you're playing a lot with winkfp even with disabled UIF you WILL get ECU lock. Flashing with winkfp is not needed unless you have a reason for it. Any other questions feel free to ask.

Mss52/4 has a limit (not sure if it's deliberate or a bug in the flashing code). Not aware of such a limit in the MS43, assuming you don't use up the AIF slots

Sorry, i can adjust many things myself (Big Thanks to HakenTT )



I am in the nice situation to have any kind of softwareversion virginized so you can remove the 29F400, flash a brandnew software (which version ever you want), plug it right into the socket, align EWS and so it works with the xdf files flying around and also with the damos files.

To virginize all you have to do is clear the ISN and AIF data, no? I don't remember the exact locations off the top of my head, but I believe it starts somewhere around 3d00 or so

Here's a link to the A2L and corresponding dump that I have. I'm sure it's the same one that others here have. But hopefully should be a nice starting point to those of you who want to start tuning yourselves

I will modify it and send it to you. Try it and post your opinion here. If there is something that you think needs more or less adjustment i will correct it. Also you will have a stock bin in the case you want to go stock in the future.
Now that's classy!! Asking people to send you software developed by a company so you can copy it. FYI, that's called THEFT.

I know you've contacted my customers for their turbo tunes, as they've already told me. Let me give you a news flash, what you're doing is a prosecutable offense, and myself and other hard working companies don't take it lightly. You want to figure out MS43 and do your own tunes, be my guest and have lots of fun with it. But the instant you copy somebody else's hard work just to 'get ahead' makes you a thief. And if my work is involved in it, you won't like where you'll end up.

I suggest anybody working with the OP rethink their position if they really want to be associated with somebody like him (and the ramafications of it).

So is he stealing Tunes and reworking them? I'm sorry, I don't understand what's going on here - I thought this was open source tuning?

My understanding is that OP "figured out" a few locations and did some basic tuning. But wants other tuned files as a basis for advancing his knowledge. On top of that, he's refusing to share any of his information in the thread.

STFU I paid $800 for my tuned file from AA and I'll do whatever I want with it. I didn't sign one piece of paper or agree to any disclaimers regarding my ability to distribute it as I see fit, as far as I'm concerned that file is mine.

Because of people like you every community effort on any of the e46 dme's always gets nowhere, you people always swoop in and start accusing and/or attacking anybody that dares come close to making tuning the e46 easy. Same reason why sharkedit was never released, the profits are just too good. You people are the thieves charging $800 to change a couple of bites in a file...

I can't blame the OP for not sharing anything, he was attacked from the get go, at this point anybody that wants to collaborate with the OP is probably doing it so via PMs and staying out of this high school drama.

NickG's software likely goes beyond a "few bytes" based on what he does on stock DMEs. I wouldn't be surprised if he changes enough code to secure legal protection.

With other tuners, yeah, perhaps there isn't anything they can legally do. But what will you accomplish by sharing your AA tune? Simply having the files doesn't bring you any closer to understanding the tune yourself.

The only thing holding back the community at this point is the community itself. It's not that hard to dump your software. At least one DAMOS exists for the MS43. That should be enough to at least get your feet wet
