Please sir I must know if you've got this working! I'm considering buying a knockoff and taking a craft at it myself but I've got a few questions if someone can help. First, I have an 06 and 04 malibu. Would I be able to reprogram the pcm with the knockoff ones by itself to reprogram cars of a model year before what seems like a model year cutoff (08?) from the out of the box knockoff. I guess next, does the cracked version mean you're getting the update information for specific modules for free?Alright, I'll get one coming in the mail and report back
A little more research reveals there is a special high speed mode for module programming. 4x the normal speed but not as robust and subject to interference from noise. I would have liked to have seen the traffic.It is the inner working that interest me.
Like I just discovered that when the Tech 2 is downloading the calibrations to the module the normal J1850 VPW communications fall silent!!
I find THAT far more interesting than the ordinary operations.
Mooseman do i need to buy a tech2 mdi to reprogram ecu's and bcm's? I cant use a laptop with a software and an obd2 to usb ?? Need help iI would caution about using updated drivers and updating Windows. I had that issue with my old IBM laptop that when I updated it, it stopped working right. Since it will never go on the internet, it's not necessary to update it as long as your hardware is working.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
