Well, that is the basic idea, but only the tip of the iceberg.

When you got your SAT Radio FSC Code, you should have received 3 files:

e.g. xxxxxxx_006F0001.xml
e.g. xxxxxxx_006F0001.der (FSC Code Certificate)
e.g. xxxxxxx_006F0001.fsc (FSC Code)

E-Sys => Options => Settings => FSC Tab => Certificate Field:

Load FSC Code Certificate (e.g. xxxxxxx_006F0001.der)

E-Sys => Comfort Mode => FSC => FSC Field:

Load FSC Code (e.g. xxxxxxx_006F0001.fsc. The FSC Code file must first be Base 64 Decoded or else E-Sys can not read it. (Use B64Dec for Decoding - http://4mhz.de/b64dec.html).

FA Field: Select "Read FA" to use cars current VO.

Parameter Fields: (Example for Sat Radio FSC Code and CIC):

Diagnostic Address (hex) = 63 (99 in Decimal for HU_CIC; I think the same for HU_NBT)
Application Number (dec) = 111 (6F in Hexidecimal - In FSC File Name, e.g xxxxxxx_006F0001.fsc)
Base Variant = HU_CIC (CIC module name, e.g. HU_CIC, HU_NBT, etc.)
Upgrade Index = 1 (In FSC File Name, e.g xxxxxxx_006F0001.fsc))

Select "Upgrade FSC" to Import and Activate FSC Code.

Select "Check FSC Status", and you should see:

----------
AppID 111
UpgradeIndex 1
SWTType SWTclassic full
FSCStatus accepted
FSCCertStatus accepted
----------

My 216 FSC has arrived in the form of 3 files of xxxxxxx_00830001.xxx.

Its AppID is deduced as HEX 83 (DEC 131).

. is Base Variant EPS? Diagnostic address?

. upgrade index will be "1". since there is no prior 216 FSC in the car before, for this initial importation, do I still use "Upgrade FSC" instead of "Write FSC" or "Update FSC"?

. when do we use "Write FSC" , "Update FSC"

. when do we use the .xml file?

thanks in advance!

With EPS, I do not know if it is Imported and Activated in CIC or EPS Module, as my car does not require FSC Code for it.

Just use "Upgrade FSC" as I wrote.

The .xml version is not used with E-Sys, rather it is used for Importing and Activating with ISTA/P.

I'm not sure why E-Sys just don't use the XML file though, as it contains both the FSC and the certificate

True, but that's just how it is. It can only process the .fsc file Base 64 Decoded.

glad to report the 216 fsc import and activation was just done.

added VO 216 first and then fsc check, DME[?] and EPS showed up missing FSC along with retrofit HU_NBT.

after fsc upgrade, in EPS, FSCStatus accepted, but FSCCertStatus unknown.

started engine, the steering became very light at low speed. that should be the feel of servotronic. [my previous car was e46, guess no servotronic with it so i can't really tell the difference.]

rechecked fsc, EPS gone, leaving only retrofit HU_NBT there.

Thanks Shawn and others here for the help. This has essentially saved me eur 200 activation fee as the local dealer insists only to sell the fsc code to me with the bundled activation service.

The local dealer was still telling me yesterday they were negotiating with Munich, trying to bend the rule for me after I protested. While frustrated, I just decided to buy the code from another dealer from Germany and it arrived today.

:-)

Yes, there are many FSC Codes, but Bluetooth does not have one, so you do not have to worry about it.

Way too many to list, but the primary ones you are most likely to encounter are Navigation Application, Navigation Enabler, Navigation Map, Voice Control, Satellite Radio, BMW Apps, Speed Limit Information, and Night Vision.

We discussed the BMW Apps one already...

S524A Adaptive Headlights requires no FSC Code. So, add the AHL Hardware and code the car if you want.

Shawn, I found different parameters settings for esys when extracting the "file" for FSC and I am a little bit confused. Can you please confirm the following are the correct ones for the HU_NBT in a f25 coded with data 50.4?

diagnostic address: 63 (0x63)
application number: DE (0xDE)
base variant: HU_NBT
upgrade index: 1 (0x01)

Thanks
