EFILive V8

V8.4.55 (Public Release - Update 1)

  • Fixed file name generation when saving files with names containing multiple dots.
  • Fixed CMB (CM849) flash failures that return $0281 or $0101 (no data received) when attempting to flash.
  • Fixed LBZ/LMM flash failures that return $0281 (no data received) when flashing some files.
  • Mitigated the $053E error which occurs when a VIN-restricted tune file is flashed into a Cummins controller that is in boot mode (usually due to a previously failed flash). When the controller is in boot mode the VIN cannot be retrieved to validate against the VIN-restricted tune file. Now the VIN is validated against the VIN license for that controller. This mitigation strategy is not available with V2 devices because the VIN is not stored on V2 devices.

 V8.4.54 (Public Release)

  • Added new Lua command line function: _efiMakeDir(). See EFILive Command Line Reference.pdf for details.
  • Fixed comparisons between tables where the axis in one or both tables contain identical labels on multiple rows or on multiple columns.
  • Enabled Cummins flash speed selections for Aisin TCM.
  • Added engine type and transmision type information to the calibration summary for most controllers.

V8.4.53 (RC2)

  • Added QR Code generator that encodes the engine and transmission identification data on the [F4: OBD]->[Details] tab page.
  • Fixed Soft Max and Hard Max display values which were incorrectly showing the minimum value instead of the maximum value.
  • Fixed flash recovery attempts (after a failed flash) for some controller types (such as CM2350B and LMM) that were hanging at the start of the flash recovery for up to 3 minutes before failing.
  • Fixed "Allow OS Override" for E41 controller, the override allows the user to force the E41 to be full-flashed with a potentially incompatible operating system.

V8.4.52 (RC1)

  • Fixed "Access Violation" error after changing the name of a calculated PID that is currently being displayed in one of the scan tool's charts, maps or gauges.
  • Added option to set the keep-alive polling frequency during pass-thru data logging.
    See: Edit -> Properties -> Scan Tool -> Data Logging -> Advanced -> Keep Alive.

V8.4.51

  • Fixed CM2100 (CMC) CSP5 custom calibrations not showing up in the editor.

V8.4.50

  • Added option to prefix item labels in the [F4: OBD] window to ensure that all display labels are unique.
    See: Edit->Properties->General->Settings->OBD Options.
  • Updated operating system compatibility matrix.

V8.4.49

  • Fixed problem where opening a *.hex file, then re-saving it as a *.ctz file, then re-opening the *.ctz file would sometimes result in the error: "Too many sectors".
  • Cax8 calibration definitions longer than 32 bits were not being correctly identified as "changed" after the calibration's value was edited/changed in the editor.
  • Minimum and maximum values are now displayed in hexadecimal if/when the calibration flags are set to display the calibration in hexadecimal (i.e. flag value of $1000 - see /Documents/EFILive/V8/User Defined Cax8/template.cax8 for flag definitions).
  • Hexadecimal precision is now supported. Rather than setting the number of digits after the decimal place (as is done when displaying decimal values), the precision setting for hexadecimal values sets the minimum number of hexadecimal digits to be displayed.

V8.4.48

      (Build 711)

  • Fixed startup hanging on EFILive_ScanAndTune.exe.

V8.4.48

  • Standardized start-up processing across all applications.
  • Updated memory manager dll.
  • Added more detailed application trace logs.

 V8.4.47

      (Build 702)

  • Using the hotkey Ctrl+Alt+X was only re-loading the first *.cax8 file. Additional *.cax8 files were not being re-loaded.

     (Build 701)

  • You can now search for the Provider ID when searching for user defined cax8 calibrations.
  • Cax8 files may now also be stored in "cax8_xxx" subfolders.
  • Two new functions added to BBX scripting: bb.AddFilter() and bb.GetFilter() which allow you to change the CAN filters for communicating with different 11 and 29 bit CAN IDs.
  • Invalid PIDs are now detected correctly when attempting to log them on Cummins Heavy Duty controllers. Previously the software attempted to log invalid PIDs resulting in junk data being logged.

V8.4.46

  • Added check sum and flash support for known E46 operating systems.
  • Added A50 TIS file set import option.

V8.4.46

  • Added option to search VIN licenses for matching controller, serial or VIN.
  • Added E86A andE86B TIS file set import option.

V8.3.45

  • Added E46 TIS file set import option.
  • Fixed pass-thru logging fault when logging PIDs from both an ECM and TCM when only an ECM is present that would sometimes cause the one of the ECM PIDs to display as "N/A".
  • Black box logging a selection of PIDs from both an ECM and TCM when only an ECM is present is now supported. The TCM PIDs will show as "N/A" on the FlashScan/AutoCal screen and will be excluded from the data log when the file is opened in the V8 Scan Tool.
  • Fixed checksum calculation that would compute the wrong checksum for a small subset of CM849 (CMB) and CM2100 (CMC) tune files, which in turn would cause the flash to fail with error $340.
  • Added -SQ (Quiet) and -SM (meta data only) command line options to provide better control over how the default tune file is opened when running Lua scripts from the command line prompt.
  • The timing calculator button is now enabled correctly when editing the CSP5 injection timing tables for CM2450B (CMF).
  • Added the following note to the Cummins Timing Calculator description:  If {D0514} "Injection Pulse Calculation" exists and is set to "Calculated", the timing tables are not used.
  • The EFILive calibration definition file name is now displayed in the [F3: Calibration] tab page of the Tune Tool window.
  • The user defined calibration definition base file name is now displayed in the [F3: Calibration] tab page of the Tune Tool window.
  • Updated envelope support when importing TIS file sets into EFILive, to fix error: "Invalid envelope header".
  • Added a "Quiet" option to prevent error message popups when opening tune files via the Lua script function _efiOpenFile(name,options).
  • Fixed user defined custom menu descriptions not handling embedded new-line (\n) and embedded quotation characters correctly.
  • Added option to export the current menu structure to a text file that can be used as the basis for a user defined custom menu.
    See option: Setup -> F2: Tools -> F3: Export -> F1: Menu Structure.
  • Fixed floating point format error when loading *.cax8 files on PC's using locales that use a comma as the decimal separator in numeric values.
  • Fixed E86B bin mapping helper tool which was incorrectly computing E86A mapped addresses.
  • Changed bin mapping tool to explicitly warn users when a hexadecimal value was entered without the $ prefix.
  • Added "Clear DTCs" option in scan tool so that DTCs can be cleared while data logging.
  • Tune files that are flagged as "Cannot be Viewed" and/or "Cannot be modified" can now be viewed and/or modified if the master FlashScan device is connected to the PC.
  • Fixed auto-generated, auto-incrementing file names which would incorrectly add multiple incrementing prefixes or suffixes to the filename being generated.

V8.3.44

  • Added VIN change tracking, each VIN change is now saved into the file: Documents\EFILive\V8\Trace\VIN_Changes.ini
  • Blank labels are no longer allowed in Scan Tool Map axis definitions. Blank labels prevent the maps from linking with the axis PIDs.
  • Added two new buttons to the Scan Tool Maps property editor on the [Col] and [Row] tab pages. The new buttons allow you to easily clear all the labels on the column or row axis.
  • To remove the selected PID from a Scan Tool Map, just re-select the current PID (the current PID is displayed with a yellow star icon).
  • Fixed Firmware programming on V3 devices to correctly detect when the V3 device has rebooted successfully.
  • Fixed "Access Violation" that occurs if a virtual table is defined in a cax8 file and the underlying physical tables that support the virtual table are undefined or incorrectly defined.
  • Fixed problem when comparing two tune files where the alternate calibration's data will be displayed incorrectly if the calibration's axis is defined via another axis-calibration and that axis-calibration is defined as a table with a single row and multiple columns representing each axis value (i.e. row deposit). If the axis-calibration is defined as a single column with multiple rows representing each axis value (i.e. col deposit), then the alternate calibration's data will be displayed correctly.

V8.3.43

  • Added right-click option to display long descriptions in the [F2: Scan]->[F3: Data] tab page for PIDs that return State Encoded Data (SED), such as OBDSUP.

V8.3.42

  • Added additional controller seed/key options for unlocking controllers locked using non-standard command.

V8.3.41

  • Fixed A40 check sum updates to include updating the OS segment check sum.
  • Fixed VIN updating via Lua scripting not working for some controller types.

V8.3.40

  • Updated the Transpose option so that when data is displayed using a 2D chart, the 2D chart is also transposed to match the transposed table data.
  • Fixed "Range Error" when loading corrupted or damaged "out of range" values from ..\Config\EFILiveScanAndTuneLayout.ini
  • Fixed fault when using a Pro-License enabled FlashScan to add the Override OS compatibility option. The OS to be overridden was not being saved into the tune file if the Override OS compatibility was the only active security option.

V8.3.39

  • A40 operating system checksum now displays an appropriate description, based on whether or not the operating system is included in the tune file.
  • Updated the Cummins unlock algorithm to handle some odd-ball controllers that were incorrectly reporting "locked with a custom key".
  • The controller's standard seed/key values are now displayed on the [F3: Tune] -> [F2: Read] -> [Lock/Unlock] tab page.
  • If any line in a *.cax8 file contained just spaces the *.cax8 file would fail to load with error "List index out of bounds".
  • Added AutoCal/FlashScan connection selection icons to the bottom right of the Tune window to make it easier to swap between AutoCal and FlashScan devices prior to reading/flashing a controller.
  • Added AutoCal/FlashScan connection selection icons to the bottom right of the Licenses window to make it easier to swap between AutoCal and FlashScan devices when managing licenses.
  • When opening the tune window, the connected device is no longer automatically changed to FlashScan. If an AutoCal was connected prior to opening the tune window, then the AutoCal remains connected once the tune window is open.

V8.3.38

  • Fixed fault when reading E35 (LBZ/LMM) controllers that would result in an "Index Out of Range" error.

FlashScan/AutoCal V3 Firmware

V3.00.122

  • Fixed "Allow OS Override" for E41 controller, the override allows the user to force the E41 to be full-flashed with a potentially incompatible operating system.

Limitations

  • Limitation #1: When logging DMA PIDs (i.e., PIDs whose names end with \"_M\" or \"_DMA\"), if the ignition is switched off for an extended period while data logging but data logging is not terminated, then when the ignition is switched on again the data log automatically continues. However, the DMA PIDs may no longer return valid data.
  • Workaround: EFILive recommends stopping the data log and restarting the data log when switching off the ignition for extended periods

 

  • Limitation #2: When opening CMF (CM2450B) Cummins 2022 tune files, the EFILive software will complain with the following message:

                               

                               That is expected and the message may be ignored. We have only added the option to open CMF 2022 stock files so that EFILive can flash stock files. EFILive cannot be used to update the check sums of modified                                     files. Modified files cannot be flashed. Ignore the message if you are opening and flashing a 100% stock tune file. Do not attempt to flash a modified file, it will fail at the end of the flash and the vehicle will be left                                   in a no-start condition until a stock file is flashed in.

  • Workaround: None.
