how to revert to original

hi all

i did some programming, and of course i did NOT read all the doc and manuals real men just don't read manuals ...

i was able to do some coding (enabling sli, digital speedo ...), but i'm not 100% sure what i did change and i maybe changed some values i shouldn't have touched. you know: real men don't do backups

so i wanted to start from the very beginning. and do it all with a more methodical and revertible approach.

afaik you can code the original setting. so what i did was:

open e-sys
read vehicle order
activate fa
right click SVT -> read coding
click on the ECU itself - NOT the CAFD_****
click on CODE
did this with all ECUs i played with

so everything is back to how i received the car. all new features are gone, and the car looks like original.

is it? could anyone confirm that i did it right?

regards izeman
