    I just downloaded a new vF Tuner today after being inactive for several months and the new version for me is indicated as Version 1.2.7.7 Logger Release A. Is this indeed the most recent?

    Ctrl+J is the shortcut to your downloads, and there should be a button that says Keep Anyway. Confirm when it asks if you're sure. I use Brave but assume this applies to Chrome as they are quite similar.

    Look who’s got the bug now! :D
    To the man who resisted the TSB and is now enjoying the 04B33 game! :cheers:
    The M+W tunes are pretty nice. More performance based.

    The version on our AWS would show 1.2.7.8

    But something with Amazon AWS servers, data isn't deleted quickly.

    So I'm guessing you guys are all downloading some cached version. (This is far outside my realm of knowledge)

    This will no longer be an issue when we have it on *our* server and not AWS.


    If you are expecting an email response, havent got replies, just want you to know I'm working every weekend trying to get all this automation setup.

    I dunno if people are buying these trucks at twice the normal rate...but we are seeing easily *double* the normal rate of emails right now.

    I tried incognito but no luck still getting version 1.2.7.7. I believe the version 1.2.7.8 was taking down because off errors. That's why we see 1.2.7.7

    So - hope someone can get me a little guidance so I can update the ECU with my new gears.

    Its been a little bit since I have done this, so forgive my vaguer'y on the description below.

    I was originally a Flash Tuner, then upgraded to the Vf when that came out. I am not comfortable enough with Vf to do anything just yet, but I would like to update my tune to reflect my newly installed gears. I recall getting a download, or file, something a while back that allowed me to input Yr, Make, Gas, Tire Size.. and then flash and it was at that time I noticed in that file or option menu different options for gears (4.88/5.29).

    Any insights on how to re-flash the truck, keeping my current tune set up because I like it so far, add the new gear ratio?

    Any advice/suggestions/guidance helps, thanks

    You have two options. Request the tune pack that matches the ecu id if your truck and flash a preset tune that comes in the pack. It’ll have several files just select the tune that matches the gear set you’ve upgraded to and see if you like it.

    Other option would be flash a p5f file that you have stored away. If you no longer have it, it’s not available for download any longer and you’d have to private message someone who may still have it on their personal computer and then flash it through flash manager.

    Thanks! Can I use credits for tune packs? I have 1 credit now because I downloaded the stock file earlier tonight thinking I needed to because those were the files on my computer.

    Email ovtune at zendesk, and request the tunepack for your specific ecu id.

    I just came back after being away for six months. Is there an updated list of available Tune Packs posted somewhere? (I'm 04B30)

    You should apply the TSB to your truck to update to 04b33 and get that tune pack.
