What cable are you having built, as whatever it is, it will work on one and not the other, and do you already have the other cable?

Some success...some not with F25 coding.

Software and cable work great (thanks April1), But I am having partial success on my coding changes. I've got a 2012 X2 with HUD and Msport and DHP and PDC.

Working:
Add power/torque meters
Add pressure and time temp reading
Disable all disclaimers
Unlock all doors when stopped...one pull open
DVD in motion...I see not way to change to Value=ff for either speedlock...this is not an option on my screen.
Close mirrors and windows with a touch to the handle lock...I made both changes, but nothing seems different. Have to wait?
Disable seat belt gongs...I see no SPW_BF or SPW_FA in the ACMS/3000 Ausstattungsflags section.

Not working:
Radio menu in HUD ...again, not HUD_ENTERTAINMENT_ENABLE choice in 3000HMI
Telephone info in HUD...again, no HUD_TELEFONANRUF_ENABLE in 3000 HMI.


I'll look again for all of this, but if someone knows what I am missing, let me know.

Thanks for the guide; in addition to the installation section --> I've installed on my "D" drive because my "C" is a small SSD disk... If you do a [find and replace "C:\" with "D:\"] in file ["X:\EDIABAS\Bin\EDIABAS.INI"] everything works just fine

You PM'd me this exact Post, which I have responded to. Tell me what your current I-Level is so we can figure out what PSdZData version you need, and we will go from there.

Mein Auto: 2011 BMW 760Li Individual
Here's my initial experience with ESys coding of my 2011 F02 760Li Individual. I have never before done anything on a BMW, by the way.

Got the Enet cable from April-1 today.
Had all the software downloaded and configured according to Shawn's instructions.
I typed up a condensed version of the F10 cheat sheet with the codes that I wanted, so that I'm not looking at dozens of other codes that may not apply to me.
Connected the car to the laptop computer, and launched ESys program.
Took a few tries before the program registered the "FA" and ran "VSM" successfully.
Back-up of all original configurations of modules done without a hitch.
Started coding some modules--holding my breath while doing the first one (seatbelt warning).
Forgot to activate FA and the code FDL was not successful. Saw the dreaded "red" banner with word "unexecutable", had some cold sweat--did I just F*** it up?
Re-read the instructions, realized the missing step, and redid the code process. Result is "green"! Unbelievable relief, big sigh!
Closed ESys program, disconnected computer from car, and cycle on the ignition............. No seatbelt warning, gong, or reminder except for right after ignition on. ALRIGHT! I can do this!
Went on to code for:
Mirror folding with comfort access & key fob.
Closing trunk with key fob and cabin button. This one took about half hour to activate.
Turn signal on HUD.
Logic-7 sign.
VIM.
Disabled legal disclaimers.

The whole process took about 4 hours from receiving the cable to final test drive. I'm so excited!

Thank you April-1 and Shawnsheridan! I thought VAG-COM was fun, but this really rocks!

Hi i just start try to do this coding stuff following all the instruction in "getting started codding".

My win7 64 bit succesfully connected and can read and edit the files, however when i want to "activate FA", it does nothing (There is no green light besides the FA and no error messages) and when i try to click "coded FDL", the program said i have to activate FA first.

Anyone facing this problem?

Update on coding of 2011 F02 760Li Individual:

Today I coded the following:

Double press of the start button to start the car without pressing on brake pedal.
Shutting off radio & Navi after car shuts off and opening the driver's door, without having to double press the stop button or lock the door.
Allow automatic windows up and down on all doors when door is open.
Unlocks doors when engine is stopped, allowing single-pull to open door.

Hi Guys
My F30 will be arriving in April and am looking to get a head start on understanding the coding.
Requesting a link to the E-Sys files & a connection to April1 for the cable.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello
Got my 13 335xi a few weeks ago and want to learn how to code myself.

Requesting a link to the needed software and how to get a connection cable.

I would like to code the following and would like direction on where to make these changes:

Navi/radio off when opening door
Auto wipers set to on
Single pull unlock
ASS off
Driving mode sport +
Turn signals in hud

Curious what other cool coding changes others have done as well. Just not sure what the options are.

Thanks in advance.

No Connection

I have the software, a cable from One-Stop, and two computers (I first tried with Win8 using Ethernet via a USB dongle and then with Win7 with a built-in Ethernet jack). Neither computer seems to get a connection to my F30 (built in mid-January). ZGW_Search finds nothing and E-Sys won't enable the VIN connection option.

The computers both appear to self-assign IP addresses in the 169 space. Any ideas to get me started?

For ENET, just make sure it has:

What version of E-Sys and PSdZData are you using?

I assume the cable is an ENET Cable, and that the Win8 machine without an Ethernet Adapter is some sort of Tablet?

Get it working first on the Win7 machine before attempting it on the Tablet.

Make sure the car is turned on and run ZGW_Search in the XP SP3 Compatibility Mode, and see if you can see the car's IP Address.

Make sure you are connecting to the F25 Target (without the _DIRECT after it).

Yes, ENET cable. The Win8 box is a ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch. (I think of it as my BlackBook Air because it has all of the limitations of a MacBook Air (no user-swappable battery, no VGA, no Ethernet, no etc), but comes in only in ThinkPad black.)

Make sure you are connecting to the F25 Target (without the _DIRECT after it).
That's helpful -- I wasn't sure which item to use since there wasn't an F30 listed.
For whatever reason, it's working today. I coded the first group and it worked. Since that first one, none of the others seem to keep the value that I type in. That is, if I change a value, click another item, then click the edited one again, I see the original value, not my edited value. I'm about to search the threads for this issue.

Thanks!
