    it is not ecu specific, it is just a software wide update

    Got my master key yesterday, but things won't seem to register for VF.... I sent an email back to matt - no rush!

    edit - updated to the latest version and registration worked, followed by an error message.
    Thanks matt for your instant reply!

    This is a dumb question I have been trying to find the answer to, but I’ll ask anyway. So recently updated my ecu, and I have the correct ecu unlocked in VF. Do I need to do anything else for the tunes? Do you guys have tickets open via zen desk? I updated to the latest version of VF this morning..I didn’t want to hound Matt if nothing else was needed. I just noticed my order status says fulfilled now when I login on the website now. Everyone else the same?

    If you had the flash tuner already, I think you are in the same boat as me. I believe we are waiting for the tune pack for our ECU to be emailed when they are finished. If you are brand new, you need to purchase the tune pack if you want a premade tune. I don't think the tune pack is finished either way so it's a waiting game.

    I purchased the tune pack when I ordered VF. I have been fiddling with the stock tune trying to get familiar with the software, but I’m running pretty fabulous on 2.0 already so I don’t want to mess with it. Not in any hurry really just wanted to make sure nothing else was needed on my end.

    Too many to research!
    Thx for a straight forward answer!! I'll 'hang up and listen' until there is further development.

    Hold up. Let me ask you guys another question. Is the tune we are waiting for via email a FINAL tune or a beta?

    So are these tunes vehicle specific other than ECU? If not why not just send everyone the full list of finished 2.0 Tunes right now

    I've not had any issues updating vF Tuner until just now. Got this from bit defender: "The file C:\vF Tuner\vF Tuner\is-VMEP0.tmp is infected with Gen:Trojan.Heur.GM.01C0006820 and was moved to quarantine. It is recommended that you run a System Scan to make sure your system is clean."
    Not sure that I want to go further at the moment.

    Don't worry about it. All programs like this will toss out a warning. I got the same one this morning when I did the update.

    OVT / vF is a trusted source.

    Just place vF tuner folder in the exemption list and you should be good.

    says 85.2 for me and the version number didn't change after updating. I used Edge to download as well, seeing as it doesn't play nice with Chrome for me

    Is the product version 1.00011, because that's what I got? Or does that not matter? I thought it was 1.00012 before..... This is getting confusing:goingcrazy:
