Review 2: successfully test 2004 XJR

The one I bought came with SDD V143. I had previously understood that V131.03 was the latest version that could be used without an active subscription to TOPix, so I purchased that version of the software separately. But after additional research, I installed the V134 software and it’s working just fine with WiFi turned off (otherwise it wants to try to log on and update itself). The seller stated that V134 only worked with 2005 vehicles and later, but it’s working fine with our 2004 XJR.


Review 3: successfully test 04 X350

When I bought mine, the JLR Mangoose SDD software bundled with the cable was V134, but I had been led to believe that the latest version of SDD that would work without an active TOPix subscription was V131.03, so I purchased that separately from an eBay seller based in the U.K. I later learned that V134 works fine with our ’04 X350 as long as I disconnect the computer from the Internet and reset the computer’s date to August 01, 2012 before I start the SDD program, which I’m running in a Windows XP Pro virtual machine on a Windows 7 laptop. I once let the clock creep up to November 2012 and the software functionality was disabled because “It had been too long since the software was updated.” Resetting the clock to August 2012 restored the functionality.

Review 4: successfully test 2004 XJ8

The software does run in XP mode. And contrary to the seller’s claim that it works only with cars 2005 and newer, it does work with my 2004 XJ8.

While, another user’s test result is: Thus far I can’t get SDD V138 to work with my 04 XJ8, but I’m using a different laptop and my Windows 7 64-bit running a 32-bit XP SP2 VM doesn’t want to take the Mongoose drivers.

To confirm whether JLR Mangoose really work with 04 year Jaguar, I consult in the engineer from JLR factory. He said it is true that a part of users successfully test SDD on some Jaguar from 03 to 04 year, but meanwhile some users fail to test on the same car, take the above 2004 XJ8 for example, one user successfully test, another one fail to test. Therefore, if anyone who want to use JLR Mangoose to test Jaguar before 2005year, you can have a try.

Part 4: JLR Mangoose SDD VS JLR DoiP VCI

1). JLR DoIP VCI works with new models:
Work with all Jaguar & Land Rover models after 2005 year.
Work with the models after 2017, compatible with Pathfinder software application

* XJ(X351)-16MY only
* Evoque(l538)
* Discovery Sport(L550)
* Range Rover(L405)
* Range Rover Sport (L494)

Pre-14MY and vehicles not detailed above will continue to use the current diagnostic system and VCls.
Replacement OBD cable is available.

Porsche PIWIS II 2 Perform a Forced PDK Update for Porsche

This article show a step-by-step guide on how to use Porsche Piwis Tester 2 to force PDK update for Porsche.


Porsche PIWIS 2 V18.15 V17.500 Free Download

A forced PDK update is required when a vehicle possesses the Q033 ROM and an open campaign update is not visible via the PIWIS tool. This procedure will update the PDK to a Q061 or newer ROM. This update is required to run the latest PDK OTS maps with custom features such as faster shift speeds, sequential shifter stalk, dual paddle to neutral, no kickdown, and no creep. These features would otherwise not be possible running the Q033 ROM.

Applicable Model/Year

2013-2016 Porsche 981 Cayman and Boxster (Base, S, GTS) w/ PDK Transmission

2012-2016 Porsche 911.1 NA Carrera (Base, S, GTS) w/ PDK Transmission

2014-2016 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S w/ PDK Transmission

Note: The update process does take some time (30 to 45 minutes), so it is important to have a battery charger (10A to 12A recommended, or a charger with a “flash” setting will work) on the car’s battery during this process. It would also be a good idea to keep a charger on the PIWIS II computer as well.


Porsche PIWIS 2 Forced PDK Update Procedures:

1.Connect a battery charger to the car’s battery, put the key in the “ON” position (engine off), and turn on the PIWIS II tool. The Car Diagnostic Tool PIWIS II will need to be connected to the OBD II port at his point as well.
2.At the main menu on the PIWIS II, select DIAGNOSTICS >> 911 >>> 991. Your selection may vary if you have a Boxster/Cayman.

3.At this point, the PIWIS II will load up the software and prompt you to a new menu.


4.Select the “Transmission Control” unit control. After this is selected, scroll to the right on the top overview bar and select “Programming”.
You can now select “Automatic Programming” and hit the “Next” button on the bottom right of PIWIS II.


5.From here, Unit Documentation and the update will begin, several prompts regarding battery charger use and ignition on will appear. Continue to press the “Next” button on the bottom right to move forward with the process. You can keep an eye on the progress bar on the bottom and Steps listed at the top. Keep an eye on the PIWIS II for any ignition off sequences or need to press the “Next” button.

6.When you finish the final step, step 12, an information prompt will appear. Hit “Next” to be shown success programming.

7.And that’s it, you’re done! This would be a good time to check for any transmission fault codes and clear them if they are present. You can confirm you are on the latest Q061 ROM by selecting the “Transmission Control” function on the main menu and selecting “Extended Identifications” on the top scroller bar.
