Alternative Resources: Burger Tuning & BMW Archives

Prerequisites:



2. Software Installation:

NOTE: Links never change. Latest versions always found below.

E-Sys - Install Instructions - v.15.pdf (Guide courtesy of member Shawnsheridan)

E-Sys 3.27.1 - Preferred version (All functions work)
  • E-sys 3.31.0 - Only use with Pro Launcher
    • External Transmitter (to clear DTC) & Coding-Verification do not work
  • E-sys 3.33.4 - Requires Pro Launcher 3.4.x+ for coding
    • Coding-Verification works
    • External Transmitter (to clear DTC) does not work
    • PSdZData > v.4.17.20: Flashing ECU's & injecting CAFD
Launcher Pro 3.x
  • See pdf instructions on acquiring activation for use
    • Pro Launcher TIPS: For Improved Pro Performance:
      1. Use 64-bit Java (JRE7 for E-sys 3.27.1 & JRE8 for 3.28.1+)
        • Replace 'jre' folder contents in E-sys installation directory or create separate 'jre_x64' folder. Then, set Launcher memory settings to custom 4-8 GB.
      2. Exclude kiswb that you do not using Launcher Settings
      3. Minimize Cheat Sheet Authors selected to just those you need
  • Launcher Pro 2.8.x
    • NOTE: Pro Launcher 3.x has newer mapping so you risk coding incorrect FDL's for G-series
Latest PSdZData_Lite (~2.5 GB) WORKS FOR ALL FDL CODING & VO CODING
  • Use this guide to determine your I-Step.
  • You only need one lite version for coding that is equal to or greater than your I-Step.
    • NOTE: If you get "Not Found [C012]" error when "Read Coding Data," it is time to update.
  • Do NOT merge. DELETE old PSdZData folder & REPLACE w/ new PSdZData folder.
  • ISTA-P Version & I-Level Overview
  • Certain E-sys installation require a minimum Psdzdata:




TokenMaster's NCD / CAFD Tool 0.5.2 (Optional)
  • One other useful tool. You can read more about it here.


By Resource:
  1. NCD / CAFD: Read *.ncd files offline and easily search for function, viewing current settings as well as other options
  2. NCD Compare: Load *.ncd files using Folder icons or drag & drop and then far right button initiates compare. Popup showing Left vs right values which you can highlight and copy if you choose. It also highlights *.ncd trees differences in red & you can scroll up and down.
  3. Decrypt CAFD: not just for CAFD's. It also works for other Psdzdata files (eg FAFP).
  4. FA / FP: viewer; tool includes mapping (eg 430 Inter Exter mirror anti dazzle). You can search loaded FA or entire FAFP (ie available options). FP viewer allows you to view options by Vehicle Profile (FP) without loading FA (Vehicle Order).
  5. FA Compare: like #2, but comparing FA's.
  6. FA-CAFD: You load individual ECU's *.ncd and can see how FA additions will affect (ie "what-if).
  7. SVT-CAFD: You load entire saved SVT file and see how FA changes will affect (ie "what-if).

I currently have E-Sys 3.28 and noticed 3.30 is available. Is there a changelog to read somewhere, or should i just stick w/3.28

E-Sys 3.29 and 3.30 add nothing and are not supported by E-Sys Launcher, so using them isn't really an option.

You can use Symlinks. If using Premium Launcher, only E-sys must be installed in default location, but data folder can be anywhere; I have mine on secondary drives.

I have only one partition, 3.27 is installed and Data folder is on C drive.

You configure in E-sys settings where data folder is located. It can be located on another partition or drive if you choose.

I think that you don't understand me, is it possible Data to be without psdzdata but with shortcut to psdzdata from ISTA, if I do programming to save about 90 GB space.

I understand; you can use symlinks. Only way you are saving that much space is that you are using PSDZ_Full, which is unnecessary unless you plan to program.
