Launch X431PRO & PRO3 Firmware Repair Guide
Posted by OBD scanner

Step –by –step procedure on how to fix  X431 PRO  & X431 PRO3  Firmware.

The software should try and do this automatically after an update, when you go to diagnose a vehicle. If the DBS connector fails to connect to the tablet, or you need to manually do a “firmware fix” then follow these instructions to ensure the latest version of firmware is currently installed on the DBS connector;

    Open the” Launch X431 ″ app
    Tap the top left “three white lines” icon to open the side menu
    Click on the Profile tab and then “Firmware Fix”
    Firmware Fix screen will prompt instructions
    Make sure DBS connector is connected to a vehicle with sufficient battery power
    Firmware fix should have completed successfully. OBD2

If firmware fix did not finish or complete successfully, this means you already have the latest version of firmware, or you can try restarting the tablet and running through the “firmware fix” again.

Plug Launch  M-Diag  Lite  in Ram OBD2 port, I can see the blue and red indicators. It connects with truck OK!
Then I set my phone Bluetooth ON. And it asks me to turn car ignition on and make sure car is stop.
It’s ready and show tip “Diagnosis is starting”.

MB SD Connect C4 V2017.05 for offline programming
Posted by OBD scanner

The offline programming has been switched off on DAS auto diagnostic tool beginning from DAS 012010. So now when you want to program a control unit for whatever reason you will need to go online to after sales platform which of course will require a dealer login and a password and only then you will be allowed to program the control unit. And this will be possible only if your control unit contains the software version older than the software version available. If the software inside the control unit is the already latest one and you still need to program it you will get a message saying that “No newer software was found”. (Soon there will be a solution how to avoid this message). OBD2

Here, we will tell you the offline-programming version.

The package V2017.05 MB SD Connect C4 with DELL D630 laptop and preinstalled software is very convenient for users who do not have DELL D630 laptop or do not want to install software. Besides, you need to buy additional  setting up offline mode in old DAS software.
But you need set up WIFI and Lan cable connection by yourself if you want to do online programming. This package also includes the offline programming activation software.
