what is the psdzdata?

 

The Psdzdata is basically a pack that contains all the data needed for E-sys software to be able to code a car, flash ecus and firmware update of the modules on the car.

 

 

Full Psdzdata vs Lite Psdzdata for Esys

 

  1. The Lite version contains only the basic files needed for Coding only and it`s much smaller in size..around 400mb.
  2. The Full version is HUGE, it has over 20GB and it`s not needed by most people because it contains data that is used only for Firmware update which is not recommended doing with an ENET Cable anyway, for that purpose you need anICOM and other kind of software like the BMW ISTA-P.

 

 

which version to choose? Psdzdata full or lite?

 

You can go ahead with either one depending on how much free space you have on your laptop`s HDD.

 

 

When to use Psdzdata full? When to use Psdzdata lite?

 

Car got reprogrammed. Can i get a link for latest ESYS and lite psdzdata.

 

Create a Flash TAL with Lite version, and see what ECU’s are targeted for update, and then if needed, download Full version and Flash them.

 

If you’re not going to flash the ECU and just doing FDL coding then the lite version is all you need.

 

Lite version is identical, but with all the SWFL (flash firmware files) removed, which are only needed for Flashing (not coding), so it weighs in at only 25% of the size.

 

Actually, people should download only what they need.

Does Psdzdata work with the obdii bluetooth module or only the enet cable?

ELS27 FORScan Scanner PCB Rework as the Original to enable SLEEP function

This is the how-to’s of ELS27 FORScan scanner PCB rework as the genunine ELS27 to enable the SLEEP function.

 

If you have a ELS27 FORScan scanner from China, you need rework the PCB same as the genuine first.

 

ELS27-FORScan-scanner-clone-pcb-1

 ELS27-FORScan-scanner-clone-pcb-2

In clones, not all components are sealed, so besides the CAN protocol is not any work. If the missing solder components, the K-line likely will work perfectly:

 

Detect vehicle on-board network configuration

Read and reset Diagnostic Trouble Codes from all modules

Reading of modules’ sensors’ data

Run test diagnostic procedures

Run service procedures

 

If you the function above is what you need, a ELS27 OBD2 from China will be a good investment coz the genuine ELS27 is three times as expensive as the clone one. Professionals tested the ELS27 clone many times and verified it’s functionality.

 

This is ELS27 FORScan scanner car list:

All Ford, Mazda, Lincoln, Mercury vehicles that can be addressed by supported adapters. It is 99% of models after 2000 and around 92% of models after 1996 (the year when OBD2 became a standart in USA).

 

 

But the SW CAN definitely not works that on the board there is an error, so sometimes PCB rework is necessary.

 

This is the original PCB of ELS27 FORScan scanner

genuine-ELS27-pcb-1 genuine-ELS27-pcb-2

 

 

If someone needs SLEEP function, do as follows:

ELS27-FORScan-scanner-sleep-function

 

Please note that by posting 300k goes to the R26 which should unsolder!

By default, the function is disabled in the very STN. For activation we send one by one command in the terminal:

STSLX on, on

the ATZ

STSLCS

should give approximately the following:

the CTRL the MODE: NATIVE

PWR_CTRL: the LOW the PWR = the LOW

the UART the SLEEP: OFF, 1200 s

the UART WAKE: the ON, 0-30000 us

the EXT the INPUT: the LOW the SLEEP =

the EXT the SLEEP: the ON , the LOW the FOR 3000 ms

the EXT WAKE: the ON, the HIGH the FOR 2000 ms

the VL the SLEEP: OFF, <13.00V the FOR 600 s

the VL WAKE: OFF,> 13.20V the FOR 1 s

VCHG WAKE: OFF, 0.20V the IN 1000 ms

If someone is willing to take the risk, you can try without divider. That is, instead of 150K solder jumper and everything, and to do the above in the terminal. I did that on the first board, but does not activate in the STN, respectively my adapter did not fall asleep. But it did not burnt. Wait adapter is not for me, so I can not check.

To see how the adapter is asleep, you must send the computer in Standby mode.

Instead 300k and 150k can be used with a pair of nominal ratio of 2: 1.

BMW ICOM NEXT A Reviews

Here is some custome‘s reviews on the new BMW ICOM NEXT A  frequently asked questions and answers (FAQs) of icom next a are attached here. 

 

What are the advantages of an ICOM NEXT vs the old ICOM?
My current “old” ICOM works fine, just wondering what I’ll gain from upgrading?

 

-it is faster in F and G series ..

– and supports gigabit Ethernet too to be future proof, there currently is not gigabit Ethernet protocol defined yet for autos. Also it has USB3.0 instead of USB2.0 and a better wifi card. 

 

 

Does ICOM NEXT have WiFi functionality ? WiFi I mean wireless connection between ICOM head and laptop

 

Yes. There are some software checks in place for certain operations (eg, programming) that will instruct/prevent user from continuing until they swift from WLAN to directly connecting.

 

 

Does anyone have updated part numbers for ICOM Next A?

 

Received Icom Next 2 days ago OEM part number has no change –

81 31 2 360 883

 

 

Which ICOM Next should i get for 2009 Mini R56.

 

ICOM NEXT A is enough.

Only for checking the cars you don’t need a ICOM.

 

 

Who has really tested the new BMW icom next? is really good? Please your opinion?

 

Unless you have lots of spare money, I would not rush to buy it just yet, wait for a few more firmware releases first, you can read a few documents on issues with ICOM Next and using ISTA and ISTA-P and BMW’s official workaround is “Use ICOM”. So at the moment you really need both.

 

 

Has somebody tested successful the Icom Next A with an Icom B to flash a CIC or CCC with WinKFP?

 

– I`m using ICOM NEXT A constantly, with E series software pack ( inpa-ncs-winkfp) and F series ( Esys-bmw-aicoder) and obviously ISTA , and no issues . All working good.

 

 

Any good site to recommend for a working icom next?

 

I got mini from http://www.obdexpress.co.uk/wholesale/bmw-icom-next-a-b-c...,  have had no issues with daily use using multiple ICOM NEXT A’s on E series with standard tools (don’t forget to reserve head first in itool radar) or Ista, F series with Ista, even BMWTIS

 

 

How to update ICOM Next A firmware?

 

In order to solve your incident, please apply the following steps:

Note: DO NOT UNPLUG the {ICOM Next} from the {OBD II} jack after an update via {ISTA}, a web interface or an emergency software update.

The {ICOM Next} starts with flashing green SYSTEM {LED}s. After about 10 seconds it shows red {LED}s for about 2 minutes. After this, the {ICOM Next} reboots due to a firmware update.

If the {ICOM Next} {LED}s remain red for more than 10 minutes, or if the {ICOM Next} is unplugged directly after an update, please carry out the following procedure:

1. Please ensure that ALL of the following prerequisites are satisfied:

1.1. You require a {USB} 2.0 or {USB} 3.0 flash drive. ({USB} 1.x flash drives are not supported).

1.2. The {USB} flash drive must be formatted with a {FAT32} file system.

1.3. A minimum of 60 {MByte} free space is required on the {USB} flash drive.

2. Navigate to “{C:ProgramDataBMWISPIdataTRICICOMNextICOM-Image-03-14-08}”.

ProgramData folder is hidden by default. In that case, you have two options in order to access the file or the folder:

– change the settings directly in the Windows Explorer (“Tools => Folder Options => View => Show hidden files, folders or drives”)

– or enter the whole path into the Windows Explorer’s address bar and press enter.

3. Copy “{ICOM_Next-rootfs-010002.tar.gz}” to the root directory of the {USB} flash drive.

4. Copy “{ICOM_Next-app-010008.tar.gz}” to the root directory of the {USB} flash drive.

5. Disconnect the {ICOM Next} from the power supply.

6. Plug the {USB} flash drive into the {ICOM NEXT}.

7. Press and hold the button pressed on the {ICOM Next} and connect the {ICOM NEXT} to the {OBD II} jack of a vehicle.

8. Keep the button pressed. The {ICOM NEXT} starts with all {LED}s glowing red. The {LED}s stay red; some may flicker orange/yellow. Keep the button pressed.

9. Keep the button pressed. After about 4 seconds, all {LED}s turn orange/yellow. All {LED}s now glow in the same colour.

10. Release the button and then press it three times within five seconds. The {LED}s glow or flash red and orange/yellow again.

11. Wait: This procedure may take several minutes. Do not disconnect the {ICOM NEXT} as long as any {LED} glows red.

12. After about 5 minutes the SYSTEM {LED} turns green again. The {ICOM NEXT} has been updated and is ready for use.

13. If the issue is not solved:

13.1. Please submit a support ticket via the {OSS Cockpit}.

13.2. Please provide the “{restore.log}” from the {USB} stick.

IMPORTANT: When the software update is complete, the {ICOM NEXT} needs to be connected to the dealer’s network in order to be reconfigured.

All previous settings are lost during the update. If there is a “{user.settings}” file on the {USB} flash drive, it will be applied after the firmware update.

 

 

Enjoy!
