Help needed, Evap&Secondary air vs state inspection

Im trying to get this thing past state inspection. Fortunately i can have one monitor set to not ready and pass. Secondary air, im sure i dont have to explain what is going on here. The problem im having is Evap will not set to ready in any kind of reasonable time.

Yesterday i was at the shop with the car and they had a way to force ready the evap when they repaired a cracked line in it probably though coding and BMW specific scan tool(which i just bought now). Unfortunately for me before i could get a chance to get it inspected the annoying chime came on signaling the secondary air had also ready'd but the cats still were not ready. Cleared the codes drove around for 3hrs and everything BUT the secondary air and evap set to ready. And i tried all speeds, from 90mph praying i dont get a ticket for 20mins to driving at 55 for 30mins, stop n go nothing got that evap to ready. i had a little over 1/2 tank of gas.

I know there is a way to get just the evap to set as ready then use that window to slide the car past inspection THAT'S WHAT I NEED. I have a shop that will pass the car as soon as i get it there but the codes from the ECU go directly to the state here in NC, so nothing can be done about that.
