Kess V2 5.017 sw 2.47 clone Unlock PCR2.1 via OBD or in boot mode
ECU Chip Tuning Tool / November 15, 2019

Question: I need confirmation that Kess v2 v5.017 clone with K-suite 2.47 can unlock PCR2.1 without opening or removing the ECU from car, directly via OBD? And then read and write soft directly to the ECU?   Review 1: you need to open ecu. and unlock PCR2.1 in boot mode. Kess 5017 I just check 225 version it still say bootmode but also say use tricore tool to read eeprom and write eeprom, select TOOL options, I have not done one of these.   Review 2: Tested on polo 2011 tdi with PCR 2.1 unlock by obd   As we now see, there are two different opinions.   Thanks.   www.obdiitool.co.uk

Read and write Mercedes sl500 ME2.8 ecu, which tool works?
ECU Chip Tuning Tool / November 1, 2019

04-10-2019 update: Trying to clone Mercedes sl500 ME2.8 ecu and everything goes fine until the end when writing eeprom it gives error..   04-10-2019, 19:21 PM update: One friend suggested: Swap eeproms. Or do it with eeprom programmer like UPA. So just clone flash with ktag. Clone ktag have this issue with that ecu. Ori works perfectly.   Another friend agreed:  Absolutely right… I have done the very same car with upa and didn’t do the flash but hw and sw numbers of ecu were the same.   05-10-2019 update: After cloning was complete I examined files before and after clone with HxD editor and mpc file was identical also was maps, then examined eeprom file and vin was written in almost the complete file was the same except for a few scattered digits maybe 10 or so in the whole file, so wondering if this is just a false error, haven’t been able to try ecu in car yet after clone, will report how car reacts to clone ecu….   One friend shared his experience on 08-10-2019: Ktag 6.070 under Trasdata working like a charm on this ECU. R/W e2p/mpc/ext with no problems. 6.070, 7.020 under Ksuite never work….

Kess V2 5.017 RED PCB possible to read and write EDC16C35?
ECU Chip Tuning Tool / July 31, 2019

Confirmed: Kess V2 v5.017 RED PCB is able to read and write EDC16C35.   Car model: BMW e92 335d with EDC16C35   Genuine users’ experience: I have checked if you can write me Kess v2 5.017 and software version 2.47 your control unit. It’s normal for me to be able to read and write. It uses Protocol 164.   you can read write it with your clone keep voltage above 13v during writing.   Issue: I can confirm that most kess clones have problem with such ecu. I personally had problem with such ecu on mini cooper (bmw) during writting. I had to restore by bench. After that, i do such ecus on bench by ktag. Fact: It’s not a tool problem, bmw needs good and steady battery voltage while writing.   Where to have good working Kess V2 5.017 RED PCB? Since there are dozens of supplier/sellers, and not sure all are 100% same. But this one is reliable, bought 10pcs and all are tested. As I known, the QC label on the tool means they checked every tool before shipping out.
