iDrive "disclaimer" screen -- any way to disable?

I assume this has been covered but in many searches I had no luck finding...

The screen that comes up on iDrive when you first start the car -- basically telling you to keep your eyes on the road -- is there a way to disable it completely instead of clicking through it or waiting? I have read it a million times and I've pretty much got the point by now.

I think you would have to have your car coded (some one -it could be you, if you are good at this stuff - connects with a laptop and modifies the car's code to disable the message). It will likely comeback if BMW runs an update on your car's software.

yes, you can code it out. see the coding forum. it wasnt difficult, i did it on my car along with a couple of other coding changes. all you need is a cable and the sw. i made my own cable for under 10 dollars.

Quick question...is part of the reason the message is there to also allow the system the opportunity to boot up? Many "title" screens are put there because the system needs time to boot up. The message can be anything, but in reality it's a mask for that process.

no, its the cya legal disclaimer that you need to accept or wait 30 seconds to time out. i disabled mine, the screen comes right up

My old Lexus' disclaimer screen stayed on until you clicked on 'OK'. Now THAT was annoying!

As the Bimmer's disappears after a few seconds I don't mind it too much...
