How to Backup and recover BMW F-series E-sys program

Here we provides BMW F-series E-SYS coding program backup and recovery method.


***************** How to backup *****************

1. How to backup with SVT
Read SVT actual from VCM -> Save
1-1. How to recover the whole
Load -> Code
2. How to get backup by module
Read SVT -> Read Coding Data by Module -> C: EsysData / CAF -> Copy and Paste Same CAFD.ncd file into folder you want to save

Read Coding Data If a new window pops up, you can save it without closing it.

2-1 How to recover by module
Read SVT -> Read Coding Data by Module -> Replace with saved CAFD.ncd file into C: EsysData / CAF -> Code FDL
3. How to get a backup of all modules at once
Read SVT -> Root SVT -> Read Coding Data -> C: EsysData / CAF -> Copy and Paste All CAFD File into folder you want save
3-1 How to recover all modules at once
Read SVT -> Root SVT -> Read Coding Data -> Replace with saved CAFD.ncd file into C: EsysData / CAF -> Code FDL



It is often called the factory reset when an error occurs.
Therefore, it is recommended to set the backup as default.
At this time, the meaning of the code is not the meaning of the original, but it is more likely that it means that the coding values ​​are reset to factory reset.

If an error occurs, you can erase it with a scanning device that can be scanned or erase the fault code using BMWHAT or use BMW ENET cable E-sys software.

Tools32 reactivate BMW Online and Internet Guide

Well after a lot of tinkering with this and that I’ve finaly done it. I’ve reactivated BMW Online and Internet.
Turns out you only need ediabas Tools32 and the jobs: lesen_provisioning_data and steuern_provisioning_data.

Steps:
– Run the first one;
– Parse the data and generate a clean xml file;
– Change the apps you want to activate inside the file from inactive to active.
– Inject the file back into the car with the second job.

It’s that easy.

Be sure to use and hex editor to do it as text editor insert “trash” in the file.

Results:
tools32-reactivate-bmw-online-1

tools32-reactivate-bmw-online-2

tools32-reactivate-bmw-online-3

tools32-reactivate-bmw-online-4

When using the method described above, this is what to look for:

To activate BMW Online:
Code:
< bon>
< active>0< /active>
< onlinemode>1< /onlinemode>
< /bon>
Just change active from 0 to 1

And Internet:
Code:
< bin>
< active>0< /active>
< onlinemode>1< /onlinemode>
< /bin>
Just change active to 1 also.

On the Internet section you will also find this:
Code:
< disable>01< /disable>
< vmax>7< /vmax>
< /bin>
Changing disable to 00 and vmax to FF will give you “Internet in Motion”. It won’t lock anymore when you start driving.

You may also need other settings if you don’t have an incar SIM, in order to force these through bluetooh, but that’s also an easy fix!


Also, don’t get too adventurous and go changing stuff around if you don’t know what they do. You could get your head unit to get stuck in a boot loop.

It’s fixable, but just thought I’d leave a warning in case some of you get curious about changing stuff without understanding what it does.


To be on the safe side, also keep a backup of your car profiles. If you mess something up you can recover your settings this way.

More detais about:
– hex editor and how to generate clean xml file:
Used HxD to edit
Just dump the data from the first step to excel and grab only the hexadecimal portion using the tools available.
After that, dump the hex chain into HxD and you have a clean file.

– I didn’t VO code:
I FDL coded the settings to activate internet over bluetooth (you can find those settings in the forum) and then injected the customized provision file.
Just FDL coding or VO coding won’t work.

– faster to browse on idrive or directly on your phone:
When using data from bluetooth, browsing is way faster using the phone. But if you get all your favorite sites stored in the idrive, dispite being slower, it’s a lot more practical. Just select using one click and that’s it! Your hands remain free the whole time and you can focus on the road, while if using the phone you get a lot more distracted.

How to download and code BMWAiCoder

BMW E-Sys F-series coding software is the most widely known BMW car coding program. Instead of providing powerful functionality, you have to install the Launcher for the token and install psdzdata. Also, there is an initial entry barriers because it is not easy to learn how to use and become proficient.
BMWAiCoder is a program that makes this entry barriers lower and easier to code. Just install BMWAiCoder and you can start using it in English, but each button has a number so you can easily code it by following the steps. However, it has a disadvantage in that it is limited in functionality and less stable than E-Sys. In addition, since the 4.6 version is no longer being updated and the author does not seem to be willing to update, it is better to use it to fix some coordinates quickly and easily, rather than using it as a full-blown coding tool.

Download Rheingold ISTA + 4.09.13 Standalone version


The BMW ICOM ISTA standalone version is a version that disables some hardware checks and server checks that are unnecessary for individual users.
As you know, ISTA-D can receive the data related to the vehicle maintenance from the BMW server. If you are a general individual user, you can not access the BMW network anyway.
The installation process is similar to the basic ISTA-D installation process, and the required files are almost all contained within the archive. There is only an RCleaner that initializes the registry, which is included in the ISTA-D download link, so download it if you need it.
