Yes, with luck. Here you go. All details for newbies.

Differences between BMW E & F series EDC17CP45 read/write:

When you would like to read/write EDC17CP45 from E-series you only need to drill a hole in back of Chip Tuning Tools to get into bootpin. But for F-series, No need open the ECU and drill one hole for bootpin or more to get into GPT.

FgTech vs Ktag read/write EDC17CP45:
with FG Tech genuine you can use only 1boot pin, but before you will need to unlock it – work by OBD.
But read/write with 1boot pin.

How to connect BMW ICOM A2 to WinKFP

Here are two methods usually adopted by BMW owners with BMW Icom a2 bc WinKFP.

First method
to lock the ICOM to Connection Mode: STATIC_IP and then use iTool Radar by Nubix to locate it on the LAN.

Second method
but that you will need the password of ICOM, but as no one brings out the password, you can forget this possibility.

only possibility is more like you’ve already described the BMW diagnostic tool with radar and lock.
in the Ediabas.ini you have to change something
Interface: REMOTE
and host the ip the ICOM have.
ICOM you can put on STATIC_IP with a file called
USER.settings(open it with editor)

ConnectionMode = STATIC_IP
Ip = 192.168.68.40
Netmask = 255.255.255.0
Gateway = 192.168.68.1

and a file which is called user.settings.log must remain empty.
The ICOM describes this file automatically.

these two files on a USB stick(USB2.0) into the BMW ICOM usb port
light of ICOM will turn on.
Car Diagnostic Tools ICOM must properly afterwards user.settings.log have described themselves.

Why MB Star C3 Xentry cannot work on W205 recent Mercedes?

User puzzles:
I have installed Xentry 9.2014 in Mb Star C3 multiplexer. It works well so far. Now, I need to make diagnosis on mercedes w205 year 12/2014 but It can not communicate with the car. C3 don’t work in all recent cars in xentry but in DAS is ok.

Experienced users’ suggestion:
C3 has many limitation regarding latest vehicles in Xentry.
It can’t diagnose it e.g w205, w212, w222, w906, smart 453 etc.

its glory is already passed unless you deal only with vehicles in DAS.
you have to change to Mb Star Connect C4.
C4’s support also officially has been stop since 12-2015.

It is no different even you change folder.
it is different protocol with recent vehicles.

For your w205 (nice car) you can use one of this :
1.sd connect c4
2.xentry sd connect BENZ C5

Both good at all new Mercedes Benz models,W222, W221, W212, W203, 211,W 204,W207, W212, GL166, B 246, CLS 218, SLK172 and Smart405, 451, 452, 454

Besides the Star Diagnosis software c3 and c4 own, sdconnect c4/c5 added three more software: SD Media, Xentry and Smart TAN Code.
SD Media: Video and PDF lessons;
Xentry: New software released by Benz Company after 04/2009 by diagnosis new cars. Xentry software for diagnosing W 204,W207 and W212 which C3 and C4 does not support;
Smart TAN Code: Opened special function in DAS program with Smart cars 405/ 451/452/ 454.Besides, it also opened more special functions, such as engineer mode, remove limitations,etc, which Star C3 and Star C4 do not have.

I have successfully communicated wit my w205 AMG using a MB SD C4 connect all controllers accessed.

FAQ / Solution of KESS V2 and KTAG

I try now to start a post where all the FAQ/solution about KESSV2 and Ktag can be found the people ask again and again.

Kess v2 vs Ktag
1.Ktag is able to work with Truck that Kess v2 can’t do.
2.Ktag read & write ECU via BDM, Kess v2 via OBD.
3.The newest ktag fw V6.070 is unlimited tokens and also newest KESS is.

Why do I buy KESS V2 and Ktag programmer together? (user review)

KESS V2 is a ECU programming tool that is perfect for OBD use, while KTag is perfect for Jtag, BDM and all the Boot application (tricore and ST10).

With KESS V2 you programming directly through the OBD port of the vehicle, while with Ktag you need to take apart the ECU and  open it, after you can make the read/write operation.

Many ECU has the advantage that can be read and write from OBD port (so KESS V2 is perfect), but there are lot ECU that need to disassemble from the car and open and this is the case for all the ECU that need to be programmed with Jtag, BDM and Boot protocols, so KTAG is needed.”
