1) You can use any version of E-Sys. You do not need a Patch or Token for VO Coding, only FDL Coding.

2) You can change your VO, VO Code, and change the VO back to original and VO Code it again. To change your VO, read this:

http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/att...6&d=1338725691

3) To VO Code:

Connect => Read FA => Activate FA => Read VCM => Right-Click on ECU (the ECU itself not the underlying CAFD) => Select CODE.

Is there anywhere all this is explained i.e. what does and does not require a patch/token? what is FDL?

Yes. Straight from the E-Sys Help File:

FDL:

"A function data list is in principle a CAF (Coding Application File) which is aggregated with the data residing actually in the ECU.

A CAF exists prior to ECU coding as data record. But a FDL is generated by readout of data from a ECU and the input of the result in the corresponding CAF."

EST:

"The EST is needed to open the modules CAF-Viewer, FDL-Editor, and Coding-Verification. An EST with role ADVANCED is needed to code FDLs."

Question

Shawn,

Here's what I've done so far. While not connected to my car:
  • I loaded in my PC my latest FA file into E-Sys
  • Using FA Editor, I opened this FA file
  • Clicked on FA Zuftragung (spelling) & Type SALAPA
  • Then I entered the proper option codes in alphanumeric order, separating each entry by a comma (and no space) -- BTW, I used TokenMaster's new tool to confirm these option codes
  • Verified edited FA by selecting calculate FP and had no errors
  • I then saved this FA file with a new name

Over the weekend, will connect to my car:
  • Will read in this FA file
  • Activate this edited FA
  • Click on Read SVT(...
  • Right click on the affected ECUs (again, TokenMaster's new tool helped me ID these)
  • Select CODE
  • Repeat for affected ECU

Have I done or will do something incorrectly or omitted anything?

That looks correct.
