Cool! So you mean anyone can upload a tune from their own home with their own computer via OBDII and then tune back to stock as needed like the Porsche tunes?

2018 720S - Volcano Red
2012 Hyper800R 12C - Volcano Red. Sold but not forgotten.

Any update on the 570?

Amazing news guys!! I’m mega excited and please keep me in the loop!! I’m in England in case you need any verification on U.K./Euro cars?

Another question, once you’ve bought the hardware, can you buy a new license or something at a discounted rate for it to work on your next vehicle when you change cars??

Thanks in advance

Anthony 👍🏻👍🏻👍&#x1f 3fb;

Yes, the 12c is sorted, as is the 650. Some clean up work is required for the 570 and 720.

Problem is that the ECU probably has a flash counter which will still serve as the proverbial smoking gun when McLaren wants to void warranties. We should do a group buy on spare ECU's

Fingerprint and flashcounter patches have been RE’d and I am currently validating via several tests in my bench ecu. So far so good.

Dyno mode is done but we figured the demand for that as a standalone tool would not be worth the cost already put into development. If I am wrong about that please reply to this post with interest and what a price point would be.

Service reset if being coded and should be done by this weekend to validate. Within I would say 1-2 weeks max we will release these first two modules.

You will place an order and receive a usb encryption key. You can purchase the key with nothing and when your ready purchase modules. Modules will be things like dyno mode, service reset, full dtc read and decipher and full reset ability on any and/or all ecu’s, then we get into flashing, dealer update flashes, custom flashes, custom patches (log anything, map switching, auto flex fuel, cvn patch, fingerprint and counter patch), logging, and much much more.

Everything a factory tool can do plus more. Well actually way more. MDS can do only a fraction of what it is capable of doing which we will release everything that can be done after vigorous testing.

I’ve made it a goal to brick every ecu to make sure I can fix them. So far so good.

At first you will need to purchase your own J2534 cable. I suggest a Tactrix from my Subaru days but it has a built in SD card logger that I will make code for.

Stay tuned.

Forgot to finish my statement. At first J2534 then when our stand alone tool is done you can trade your key in for a standalone device if you want. Otherwise we will likely add self tuning features which will go hand in hand with your existing key and cable.

Users can customize what they want or get everything. Goal was to provide something flexible for end users who may only want something and others or shops who want everything. License one car or unlimited. Pretty much a pay for what you want and unlimited expandability thereafter as features are released. Some will be free some will come at a cost.

Great cars, great forum, with great people and great engineering!
I cannot wait for this to be officially done,,,tuning via OBD2 port without removing the damn ECU is the way to do!
