[ed] I have created a fully functional version (with fast read/write) of the flasher based on Tony's released code (https://github.com/NefMoto/NefMotoOpenSource) and SB's changes - nyet

The installer is barebones, it does not make a program group, or anything, and if you have nefmoto already installed it will prompt to remove it.

https://github.com/NefMoto/NefMotoOpenSource/issues/1

All that will get done later at some point. If you are a developer, help in the form of pull requests is appreciated. Please consider giving back to the community.

Please report bugs and feature requests here:

https://github.com/NefMoto/NefMotoOpenSource/issues

Latest release will always be here:

https://github.com/NefMoto/NefMotoOpenSource/releases/latest

What sort of features would you like to see added to Nefmoto? 

Please provide:
  • description of the feature
  • a use case that exhibits that it would benefit the entire community and is not for the sole purpose of your own personal gain

What about me7correction integration?
To prevent flashing unsummed files.
And/or automatic checksum correction before flashing starts.

If you forgot to sum the file before flashing.
Or simply preventing some oblivious person "bricking" the ECU,
Resulting in a flood of post asking for help to do something
Which has been discussed a million times over.  Tongue

Agreed! I think this will be the first thing I add in.

Ability to read DSG TCU's would be a cool feature.

Thanks Tony! And all that will add in the code thanks in advance!  Smiley Known bugs like  baudrate change before any new /extra features I would say!

SB is nothing like prj; you're way off target. Let alone Tony.

There is absolutely nothing secretive about the nefmoto software; it now literally is all there on github. It took me quite some time to convince tony to release the source (there were actually other real reasons why doing so was problematic, not the standard "I can't give things away to noobs" attitude).

If you don't have a background in software dev, it is extremely hard to explain why some projects are harder to build than others, but trust me, it is NEVER because somebody is trying to keep something secret or because they're elitist.

It is because writing good documentation is a ton of work, even when the target audience is experienced devs.

If you expect somebody to just do all of that work for nothing, then complain when they don't, you're simply not seeing the big picture.

It took me 10+ years to compile the basics of the s4wiki tuning page. I never took a dime from anyone, nor did I play the glass bead info trading game which would have prevented me from publishing things I had promised to keep secret in order to learn them. I could easily complain that is because of the toxic nature of the tuner industry, but that would be vastly simplifying the point; the bigger issue is that for some, that is their bread and butter, and they do jealously guard everything they learn because that is part and parcel of their business model. The arrogance and condescension comes from that.

But never confuse that with the frustration expressed by somebody who just doesn't have time to explain something to somebody who has literally zero experience in either tuning OR software development. It is a daunting amount of work, and tiring to post the same explanation over and over and over and over again.

BTW this not the first time i've posted an explanation like the above. It pains me to have to do it yet again for the umpteenth time. Now that you know, feel free to help me and post the same information when the next guy complains about stuff ;P

Thanks nyet.  I never meant my post to come off as arrogant.   I thought I described what needed to be done was enough.

Simply stated, there are already buttons on the form which will allow you to fast write / diff write...whatever you want to call it.  They are disabled if a license isn't present.  All you have to do is modify the code that says

diffWrite.Enabled = hasLicense;
to
diffWrite.Enabled = true;

Anything more than that, and I would have to explain how to develop a .Net application.

SB: if you have time, can you make a build with free premium? Tony has pretty much given us the ok to do so.

I would do it myself but as I mentioned before I'm swamped with a new job.

Next on my list would definitely be to fix the baud rate changing issues.
