The ICOM firmware version should match the ISPI version of your ISID or ISSS. (i.e. if your ISID/ISSS is version 2.9.x, you should flash the 2.90.x firmware for ICOM). Flashing something like the 3.x ICOM firmware may render the ICOM incompatible with your ISID/ISSS until you either downgrade the ICOM using the restore procedure or upgrade your ISID/ISSS.

ICOM Firmware Restore

ICOM-Firmware-Restore.zip - Contains ICOM_Restore and ICOM A Emergency Software Update
https://www.rapidshare.com/files/258...re-Restore.zip

ICOM Firmware 2.8.x

ICOM-Firmware-2.80.70.zip - Contains ICOM-BootImage-01-09-00 and ICOM-ApplicationImage-01-11-01
https://www.rapidshare.com/files/201...re-2.80.70.zip

ICOM Firmware 2.9.x

ICOM-Firmware-2.90.59.zip - Contains ICOM-BootImage-01-11-01 and ICOM-ApplicationImage-01-15-01
https://www.rapidshare.com/files/212...re-2.90.59.zip

ICOM Firmware 3.0.x

The VMWare is it's own ISTA. If you have a native ISTA, you wouldn't use the VMWare version.

Hello shawn, first of all thanks for your availability
just one question, do you think it's worth buying a icom A and go to ista or believe enough e-sys to play with my car?
What benefits would I get?
Thanks!!!

ISTA/P via ICOM is designed to easily allow you to program the entire car via a Measures Plan, from one Integration Level to another Integration Level, and to Import and Activate FSC Codes.

E-Sys, which can also use ICOM, can do the same, although it is not as straight forward. E-Sys is actually better in that like WinKFP for Exx Chassis, you can target a single ECU to be programmed, where with ISTA/P and its Measures Plan, the whole car must be done.

At the end of the day, I don't think ICOM-A is a must have, however, it is a faster more reliable interface for programming than ENET, and if it is priced reasonably, I'd pick one up if you want to be able to flash ECU's. If you only plan to FDL Code, or occasionaly flash a single ECU with E-Sys, you don't really need it.

Same here. I think $150 is the sweet spot for me.

I have not connected to my car with it, as I have just been using it for documentation. That said, I don't see why the car couldn't be running, same as with E-Sys.

Running car is a great source of electrical noise. Unless your entire system is well grounded and shielded, it's preferred to be just with ignition switched on.

Yes, it is very hard to find. Unfortunately, a few day's ago my RapidShare account was locked and all my content deleted.
