So, the device is working good…worth buy it, but you need to do checksum before insert in genius


Med 9.1.1 Audi q7 4.2 FSI ID & READ ok

Read edc17c19 Opel insignia, work very fast

Works ok, tested on Nissan navara read and write OBD, edc 15 Fiat read write obd, pcr 2.1 read. But doesn’t calculate checksum and don’t read full size file like kess and ktag. Is not kess with lcd is another interface but from same company.

Mine still working well. After 7x resetting the token counter.

Audi Q7. File read with New genius is 100% correct (size 0x27C000).

I have done BMW E46 318iecu without issues.

PSA edc17c10 read on boot and test write by obd ok

Successfully remapped a Range Rover sport 2.7Tdi, First attempt I just assumed software did checksum. Started car and cut out within 5seconds. Second attempt I did checksums in winols and wrote back to car and everything was fine. My kess v2 read a 2mb file and the dimsport read a 256kb file but all the maps were in the read!

Can bypass TPROT security and allow to to flash TPROT ecus without having to open the ecu to unlock it at the first place. You just flash your mod by OBD like you would on any other non TPROT ecu. (Although on TPROT ecus reading function is not available)
But the problem is, that you need to checksum the file with Race Evo on these ecus. Anything else will not work.

Installation OS:
Installed on XP in vm for now all ok.
Run it on Windows 10 x64 with SSD hard drive.

Focus MK2 2.0 Petrol
-> Read OK 2MB File, full read (no partial reading)
-> Write – Ori file OK
– Modded File with CKS -> NOT OK, Engine start with DTC Throttle Fail
– Modded File with CKS write with KESS V2 OK
– Conclusion => Read Only, write ECU Error or worst BRICKED

Tested on golf 7 gti 220HP simos18 NOT WORK !
Since the protocol enabled is an old version, it doesn’t cover all file sizes.
You will get “incorrect file size” error when you try to upload the file to the ecu.

Part 2: K-Touch what does not work:
Tested read & write fail on Toyota
K-Touch is a crap tool made from Kess 4.036 tech with a screen on it.
I would never use it on any kind of car, even not EDC15.

MED17. 5.2 – Jetta tsi 2.0 tp8/10
Fail to Write, fail recover many times with fans on
Recover with original file worked

It is possible to clone CiD, but need SD Card from China that has an EEPROM instead of PROM.

To be continued……

Many thanks to all real users’ real test.
