Thank you. The 2007 V6 Manual Crossfire bit is interesting, I wonder if anyone knows what ECU it is running ??
The way I understand it is all Mercedes cars with ME 2.8 do it, ones with ME 2.0 do not, which is why all we need is a manual V6 owner to confirm and I'll be absolutely certain then.
What we have learned here today is further re inforcement of my belief.
Problem is the nasty man at Mercedes will not give me the strategy documents for ME 2.8 DAS 2 and DAS 3 so I can compare them ................ What a party pooper
You see I know exactly what DAS 3 does, and exactly what DAS 2 does but what I don't know is exactly which lines of code control which aspect of the Immo, and which ones control the "Engine" size / config.
If you have ever seen a .bin dump from a Motor ECU you will know that it is a humongous file, and I'm not exactly an experienced programmer who does this on an every day basis !!
That said I successfully hacked 150 PID's in a FORD EECV ECU some years ago so I could not only sort the Immo issue, but also re map it, where no one else could, because they didn't have the definition file to ID the PID's.
The humble Mercedes Benz Bosch effort is one helluva lot more hack friendly as they don't change the Def's as often as Fords changed their underpants, hence there is so many guys out there who can re map most Bosch via K line, but only a handfull of FORD EEC's
I need to be really certain before I start looking for the patterns in the binary in order to Virginise just the Locked Immo Data, all the ones I have done so far have been like for like replacement ECU's and "Virginise / Re-Marry" procedure works a treat, but never done it by using a V8 ECU on a V6 Car yet
Like I have said in the past I am 99.9999999999999999999% certain it will be a no different process, but I'd just like to be absolutely belt braces and cable ties safe before going at it
I don't mind bricking a few Ł30.00 EBay ECU's in order to further the cause, but I seriously do not want to mess with the 2 that my R170 and W220 Cars are both running fine on right now
