Testing firmware update function for Ford modules

Post by FORScan » Sun Nov 05, 2017 1:58 am

Update 20017-12-20: We are sorry, but by this moment we have stopped inviting new testers, as existing testers already found serious issues and we need to resolve it before continue.

Version 2.4.0 will have firmware update function that works on last generation of Ford and Lincoln modules. It is not implemented for Mazda yet. This function was successfully tested on several Ford cars, now we start beta-testing.

Requirements for participants:
1. To have Ford or Lincoln car with modules of last generation. For European market these are Focus Mk3-3.5, Mondeo Mk4-5, Kuga 2-3, Transit 2006+, Fiesta 2008, Ecosport 2012+ , Galaxy/SMax 2006+ and so on. For North America market this is applicable for majority of 2010+ cars.
2. To have good wired adapter(ELS27, J2534 or good ELM327 adapter with USB interface). Current implementation of the function will not work on wireless adapters, as it is too risky (too many chances to "brick" the module).
3. To have general understanding of the subject (what firmware is etc), as our goal is to make sure the function works stable. So we have no ability to train users at this stage.
4. To have an access to any equipment that would be able to restore the module in case of something goes wrong (IDS, UCDS, professonal multibrand scanners and so on).
5. To have strong nerves :)

Not mandatory but quite desirable:
6. To have Internet on the latop that will be used for testing, to download firmware files in automated mode. Manual download is possible, but very inconvenient.

If you have everything neccessary and want to participate in this testing, please contact us by email (address is available in Contact Us page) or PM on this forum.
