Doing this will earn you the right to ask me any number of weird, noob, or challenging questions you can come up with indefinitely. Or, I will define your file, or do some other random task in return.

This how to should start with driver setup, troubleshooting connectivity, memory layouts, baud rates, and finally culminate with reading one's file. Pictures are a must.

Let's do this!

Might be a good idea to start with hardware.

Best bet would prob be a decent laptop with win7.

The lappys with the fruit on them are fancy and all, but you will need to put the antichrist software on there anyway, so just get another one so you dont taint the fruity one.

The robot ones prob arent going to work.

If you have a penguin one, well, you prob dont need a guide.

LOL! As it happens, I need to set up my diagnostics laptop, so I'll have a stab at writing down what I do along the way.

First draft attached. Feel free to hit track changes and add comments, or just edit away. I think it needs more examples of which car goes with which memory layout (both my 2.7 and my 1.8 are 1024, so I have limited experience on that) and if there are other common issues, they should be added to the troubleshooting sections.

I was assuming this would end up on the wiki or as a forum post, the draft is only a docx because its an easy way to put pictures, formatting into a doc and have comments from multiple people. Personally I'd rather use gerrit for comment and review tracking, but I'm format flexible...let me know what you prefer  Smiley

content removed. I dunno what happened.. I guess I didn't read the whole thread and was watching Shaknado2. It was amazing but the first one was better. So I woulda wrote the guide if you experienced Sharknado but I see it's already been started.

TCS:

Read the document that has been posted, and try to do so as a noob. If you think any of it is unclear, or see an area that you struggled with, add to it Smiley

Keep up the good work guys!
