this is the proper file that was read without errors.

i've got the ecu out right now and i'm going to rig it up on a bench here. seems i can only read memory in the car. i'll see if the options change when the thing is out of the car and powered with higher voltage than what's in the car.
Great. I started doing the XDF for your software version. See if that software is giving you option to flash and if it has auto checksum correction. It should give an option to flash even if it is the car.
I am looking at P.A.Soft webpage and one of the screenshots shows options: "write read EEPROM" and "recalculade checksum", do you have those options for DME?

yes, but they are grayed out right now.

i just hooked the ms43 on the bench here, and i can get into it with only a few wires connected.

in the process, i learned a great deal about the labeling of WSD.

main unit has 5 connectors.

connector 1 - big thick wires, constant 12 v on 7 + 8
connector 2 - o2 sensors
connector 3 - engine stuff
connector 4 - interior and diagnostics
+12v on pin 26 and 4
ground on 12
k line on pin 32

that's all that's required to connect to this.

i'm going to scavenge my place for some power supplies. i'll combine some power supply together to get the needed voltage, my computer power supply reads 10.8 volts on voltmeter and realtime feedback.

perhaps that's the key to enabling flashing of this thing. if this does work, it could be done in the car, just bring the power supplies out with you and hook up to the correct pins.

doesn't appear i can write the full 512kb with this tool, the read/write eeprom are grayed out.

battery voltage reports a green and 14.5-14.7 volts on the bench here.

i'm going to grab the 2nd set from "DME read memory" the 2nd 512kb to see what's in there.

Not sure if you have this information however it may be helpful.

ms43 doesn't appear in that list.

it's fine though... galletto can write 64k back into the ecu, and that is supposedly enough to modify the maps and such.

Bummer, looks like that version from china does not have it. They have the new software out v1.4.8, I don't know if that one does it.

Thats because MS43 is not a BDM flashable ecu.

It sucks that galletto won't do auto checksum correction

That looks like second part of that EEprom, it is just raw code there are no maps in there but it is nice that you fully dumped your ecu's flash bin.

using latest version. same deal.

aren't checksums in various places in the code ? so the flash tool would have to know all the offsets for the checksums ?

Good flashing tool for BMW should have checksum correction. Galletto only flashes what you want to flash, it is up to tuner to correct the checksum of the tuned file. What would be great if you could buy shark injector software, flash it then read the whole first part bin, then send it to me, they I would know what realy is going on. I might do that, but I am short on money now in this bad economy.

hmmm i have the bavauto power programmer... lemme go get it and see if i can get it working this time with a proper power supply. i've never been able to get it working, maybe it's the power supply that was needed.

oh, and just to put this stuff to rest, the power supply i used was two normal power bricks.

a 5 volt and 9 volt supplies, wired in series, to bring voltage up to 14 volts. no magic here. one supply from a cordless phone, another from a portable dvd player.

Do you mean buy the Shark injector device that basically does a reflash from the OBD II port? What software will allow you to connect to the Device then to your laptop to extract the file. I assumed the file was stored on the device in memory only and there was no interface to the file. Correct me if i'm wrong.
Thanks,

Thanks,
There is permanent eraseble axess memory, that would be the EPROM, then you got random axess memory, that would be the free memory for ecu tu use to store codes, to store self learn patterns. I don't know much about shark injector but I think it is like self cointaning flasher unit that will flash the portions of the EPROM trough OBD2 port.

Gurov that bavarian autosport flasher is same as shark injector, why it does not work? Fails to flash or what?

BMW programs certain limitations into their on-board diagnostics software (OBDII). Our Power Programmer remaps you BMW's software to improve performance across the full rpm range. You'll realize quicker acceleration, faster 1/4 mile times and a higher top speed.

it's just never worked on this car. dunno why. i've sent it back to bav auto once and they failed to fix it or make it work or do anything really. it flashes the code "ecu not responding"

this thing is worthless to me, it doesn't work. and since it's been a few years since i bought it, i doubt they would really give a **** that some guy's power programmer doesn't work to do anything about it.

Maybe at the time they thought you had a MS45 like we all did until we found out that you were running a MS43. That could be your problem

I've some tuned files for my 330xi ... flashing with cartune, getting 63kb in and out - cartune will do the checksum for you...

Done it with my old 98' 318iA and with my new 04' 330xiA ...

Here a screenshot. This tool can program several BMW/Mini ECUs...
