    Ya us OFT handheld users are a small quiet group but I don’t think we’ve been forgotten. I think were still included in the original flash kit group? With a new software and support still coming? But I’m kinda thinking the same thing about maybe trying out some of the user custom VFT tunes out there. I’m thinking it might be the $79 to shift over from OFT handheld to VF tuner as well? Not 100% on that though.

    Im all for it, I just recently heard and saw that vftuner is using BIN files which is what we use for our OFT HH. So Im hoping soon we can get all the tweaks and perks. I know matt is slammed with everything but hoping this year we can get taken care of once this big update is done

    So I installed VF tuner like the instructions show, registered with the master key, after preparing the Ecu which was reliable, I get to this point and when I select calibration file nothing comes up. I can’t see any tunes, I must be missing something, do the tunes get emailed separately?

    So what was the answer? I'm running into the same problem, but maybe I'm just dumb. Do we get a separate email for the tune pack files?

    If anyone has updated to 04B42 or 04A72 on the older flash tool, please feel free to "READ" ecu and send it to zendesk

    Ok I have a valid question, the instructions look different that the current version of VF tuner. How do you find the system ID?
    you have to email them with your system ID and truck info to get the tunes after you register. I was going through the instructions but have found 2 different sets.

    When you open vftune what does it say! When you first open it usually it will say what your system id is.

    Edit: Usually associated with the operating system on the computer!

    Is there an instruction checklist? I got the link and bought the upgrade. Do I just DL the program and input stuff or need a reg key etc? Been out of the loop for a while here.

    Can you not extract it from the .cuw files I sent to your zendesk yesterday?

    I can, but at the same time providing ECU dumps can do the job too

    With the new software, there are no more reg keys. Once you get the email with your master key, download the latest version of vFtuner(link is unavailable until 6pm eastern Tues night according to website). Then follow the prompts. There are also new instructions on the vftuner website.
