So there's an app called MHD Flasher on the google play store that allows you to use OTG connection on an android device to flash your car's ECU. You download the app for free and use microtransactions ~$100 to unlock the ECU Maps for your car's VIN number. If I were to root my android tablet and use an app that people use to get free coins/cars on google play games microtransactions, could I possibly get these ECU maps for free? I've never worked with rooting an android before.

It's possible, if someone has already cracked it, to get it for free. If nobody has then you will need to crack it yourself.

Just do what everyone else does and but a used one off ebay, do your thang and then sell it back on ebay.

>>52357459
cracking an app would be hard as tits for somebody with no experience wouldn't it.
>>
>>52357318
Do you really want to do this? What happens when you fuck up the ECU?

You're money is better spent decarbing your engine if pic is your car...
>>
>>52358088
Bingo.

Are you trying to run a custom fuel map on your car or race mod it or whatever?
>>
terrible fucking idea. buy the correct flashing tool or take it to a real tuner

your dad would be angry if you fucked up his cars ecu and you had to explain why the car needs to be towed back to the dealership
>>
>>52358741
I'm gonna have to agree with this guy.
There's 3 options for this app thing:
1. The app works as advertised, giving you more power, better economy and all the shit it promises.
2. The app does literally nothing and the entire thing is a placebo. You've literally thrown money away.
3. The app manages to reflash your ECU, but hasn't properly calibrated it so you run into potentially massive problems in the near future. This could destroy your engine.

Bottom line, it seems awfully sketchy. I wouldn't trust it.

Do you own a car?

>Do you own a car?
Yes, several.

Decarbing is not easier than adjusting fuel maps. Decarbing IS easier than fucking with some unknown app, there is zero point in tuning an N54 until it's been decarbed anyway...
>>
>>52358784
pretty much this
at worst you've flashed bad ROM onto your ECU and your car is routinely and thoroughly fucked. you'd be at the mercy of your dealer to flash back, which they'd charge you through the ass for.
If you're looking for performance gains, just decarb it and put a cold air intake on it.
>>
>>52357318
Long time ago I was talking to Oscar Jackson (of Jackson Racing) and he said that they never touched the ROMs in the ECU.
People who knew a lot more about those engines than he ever would had made decisions. He wasn't going to second-guress them.

Stop being an asshole.

It sounds like many people worked extremely hard to deliver a really simple solution to a problem that you appear to have.

This kind of retarded bullshit is just going to bite you idiots in the ass in the future. It's going to get harder and harder to make money in technology.

>$5 OBD cable

>>
>>52359934

Well, are you talking about changing the actual firmware of the ECU, or changing the fuel map?

The fuel map is tuned to meet each market's emissions requirements.

It's the analogous to providing a different data file to some program (e.g. a new AVI to a video editor).

Changing the ROM, the actual program run by the ECU would be unwise.
>>
Even if the map is legit, the chances that your shitty phone, laptop, car and USB cable will all cooperate is pretty low. It will probably write all zeroes, or drop/corrupt some of the data, or just write complete garbage, and then you're fucked.

i have an app that allows you to get free micropayments but its a matter of luck really and has flaws, the one i use is freedom + cracked google store
flaws: cant update google store or it will break
needs root, potentially bricking your device and some apps dont work with rooting
it wont work if the app confirms if payment actually occurred, a lot of apps do it nowadays, matter of luck but serious apps like this are more likely to practice this

i downloaded the app to try it but couldnt get to payment because wants connection to engine, thankfully it works with root

hopefully i helped you
>>
>>52361354
forgot to mention the app description is said regular license checks this will most likely break it
freedom also no work with subscription payment model micropayments
>>

>could I possibly get these ECU maps for free?

lol impossible, especially if it's bosch made ecu. just pay for $100+ for a new one. Seriously what car are u drive ?
>>
>>52357318
how are you going to connect a phone to your ecu? Don't you need to make an OBD II connection? If you are already going to buy an OBD II adapter buy one for a laptop and do the shit for free.
>>
>>52358715
>decarbing your engine

What the fuck is that?

Oh, how is that better than changing fuel ratios? (Assuming he can do it with the app)
