My Experience with new EsysX software

Im here to answer questions:
Somebody tried the new Esysx software already?
Is it better then Launcher Pro?


Not better or worse. 

I won't pretend to an expert of Esys , but I use E-sys launcher Pro daily long ago and more than a year in the EsysX since I use Gkoukou solution long ago ( more than 5 years ).

To be honest , I'm always grateful to have token master's solution , but as you may understand it's like I use AMD in all of my desktops and Intel in all of my laptops , the purpose is to have balance but to compare which one is better , many may tell you that the Intel CPU got better performance than the AMD , but I actually prefer the AMD more and won't choose Intel if it's a desktop again .

Since 3.27.1 , I actually prefer EsysX much more and using it most of the time (now the 3.30.1), do you do programming by Esys a lot ? if you did than you probably get my feel because EsysX handles the memory better , it's actually much stable and faster in my opinion , I can't prove this cause I'm not a programmer nor a software expert , it just my experience , although I didn't do the latest launcher Pro update since lots of issue were reported .

Update: I activated e-sys 3.31. At first , everything seems OK including editors, just like the Token Master launcher. Still has no online update support. I hope it has the next version. The rest is very easy to use, it has an interesting function of generating FSC code from VIN. I have not tried it yet, I have seen it have a 50-count counter. I do not know how to renew the counter. We can get information here.
I forgot what is important. Support is (now) very good. Paul (esysx.com) responds quickly and promptly to the questions.

Update: Esysx has much more better support, not waiting weeks or months for answer.Activation process easier.
It has actual CAF mapping data , not always old ones.
FDL cheat sheets, and you can make very easy scripts for your desired coding, without having knowledge of java.

The biggest advantage is automated online activation process.

And it has no Expiry date!

It was a good change to use Esysx

Free download 11.2017 BMW ICOM diagnostic /programming software ISTA-D 4.08.12 ISTA-P 3.63.0.400 on Mega with questions and answers frequently asked.

Download:
BMW_ISPI_ISTA-P_DAT_3.63.0.400.istap
BMW_ISPI_ISTA-P_SYS_3.63.0.400.exe

Note:  The software is not me, to use at your risk. I am not responsible for a bad use.

If you want use ICOM software with safety, i recommend this: http://www.uobdii.com/wholesale/v20179-bmw-icom-software-hdd.html
I confirmed this works perfect in BMW diagnostic, coding and programming on Exx & Fxx cars.

Space required: A full installation of ista-p 3.63 without older installed versions needs 244gb space free.

Installation of 3.63.0 with installed version:
- 3.62.0 needs 103gb
- 3.62.1 needs 95gb
- 3.62.2 needs 114gb
- 3.62.3 needs 114gb
- 3.62.4 needs 114gb
- 3.62.5 needs 114gb
space free.


Vehicle coverage: From ISTA/P version 3.62.0 on (end of June 2017), the programming of the F, G, I series with ISTA/P will be gradually switched off.

Model series affected:
F, G, I series vehicles.
· Series F056 can no longer be dealt with as of ISTA/P 3.62.1.
· Series I001, F001, F025, S15A, S15C can no longer be dealt with as of ISTA/P 3.63.0.



FAQs:

Q: I have question about installing ISTA/P, clean and fresh install or installing over old version?
A: You have to uninstall the old version before.

Q: I have 110GB free, with istap file inside it will be free only 31GB and for installation is needed 230GB free, what now?
A: Purchase bigger HDD or download standalone.

Q: How did you install 3.63 with only 150gb? The installer would not continue...
A: First thought was to remove all data from ISTA/P but I have removed PsDZ and SQLiteDBs from Rheingold, I have tried and installer didn't brake installation, instead of 240 GB it was only 137 GB needed.

Q: ISTA-P standalone? Sure? Where can i find this?
A: Here you go. 63.0 PSdZData - Lite and Full Versions:
v.63.0_PSdZData_Lite:
v.63.0_PSdZData_Full:

Q: The folder pzd-data alone is not ista-p. how should it work? how to install the other files from ista-p?
A: You can better use Ista+ incl SDP because some Fxx are not supported in new Ista-p. Update Ista-p for Exx is not useful.

Q: I extracted all files then install bmw ispi ista p sys.. but nothing happen
A: You Need Loader.  Download ISTA-P Loader V6.3 Lite + activation key:
UNBLOCK archive and extract with 7-zip

Which software for BMW F series diagnosis, coding, programing?

If you want meaningful Diagnosis in English, for both E-Series and F-Series cars, you need ISTA/D (Rheingold) and you can request it here:
http://www.obdii365.com/wholesale/v201612-bmw-icom-software.html

For Coding, you need different Tools, NCS Expert / SP-Daten for E-Series and E-Sys PSdZData for F-Series.
All Diagnosis and Coding can be done with cheap DCAN Cable for E-Series and cheap ENET Cable for F-Series.

For Programming (Flashing ECU’s with new Firmware), then you need ISTA/P for for both E-Series and F-Series cars, or you can use WinKFP for E-Series and E-Sys for F-Series. For E-Series Programming, you will need an ICOM, but for F-Series Programming, you can use ENET Cable.

Foxwell NT510 vs Carly for BMW

BMW diagnostic & coding: Foxwell scan tool or Carly app?

So what would be the difference between Foxwell scan tool and Carly app in terms of diagnostics? I know coding wise there are pros and cons between them

Carly can read and clear codes, also can register batteries at $15 a pop. I don't think it can code injectors though... at least I haven't been able to find a way.

The Foxwell can read OBD codes from any car and also do specific vehicle operations to BMW / Mini / Rolls. Its a lot better in terms of diagnostics. It has a lot more functionality in terms of reading live data, freeze frame data, activating individual components to check for faults etc. If you had a tricky fault i'd say you have a much better chance of pinpointing it with the Foxwell tool.

It also has a lot more functionality i terms of DIYs since it can do resets/adaptations

The interface and connection is also a lot better than Carly.

I like the fact that Carly can do simple coding but in general i'm not a fan of their interface and their connection is pretty bad.... even when compared to other wifi based iOS OBD apps

Look here: Foxwell NT510 BMW function list

In summary...
Both are great tools, depends upon what you're looking for. Coding and serious diagnostics should always be done over a wire in my opinion. Actually for coding, I use INPA/NCS.
If you want something you can just leave plugged in and read codes or just log if you feel like it, it would seem Carly is the way to go.
For quick reference I have the dongle in my car and my phone is always in my pocket, for more detailed scanning I like the Foxwell NT510 scan tool over app based tools. 


Carly for BMW review:

I used Carly for my wife's previous E88 128 convertible and it worked great - no having to do one item at a time, etc. Not quite sure what the problem is with the F-cars, because the principle is the same - read coding data, modify, write coding data. Apparently the new "network" and whatever read/write protocol that implies is far different than the CANbus of the E-series cars.

By comparison, E-Sys has improved vastly over the past year or two and coding both my F30 and the wife's new F23 was relatively easy, particularly since you can save the coding data, disconnect, take the computer inside to do the modifications on a copy of the saved data, then reconnect and push the data back using the modified file. No more sitting in the car searching for the feature to be coded while the engine's idling.


Ps. Actually, the Carly adapter is Bluetooth. E-Sys looks for a connection via the ethernet port on your laptop. It won't recognize BT at all - at least, I've not been able to make it do so. If your laptop doesn't have an ethernet/RJ45 connector, you'll need to find a device that does. Pretty sure that you can't use a USB-to-ethernet adapter, either.
