Farmers are pirating John Deere tractor software to stick it to the man

Many of us have downloaded cracked software from the darker corners of the internet over the years. Remember when the only way to get Photoshop was to buy a $700 license? Yeah, enough said. Some of the most prolific users of cracked software these days aren’t who you think. Farmers across the US are grabbing modified copies of tractor software from sketchy Eastern European websites to get around John Deere’s draconian software restrictions.

Farmers-are-pirating-John-Deere-tractor-software-1

Large-scale farming is now a heavily mechanized industry, and some of these pieces of machinery can cost several times as much as your car. John Deere is becoming known as a particularly troublesome company to deal with when you need to make repairs on one of the expensive pieces of farm equipment John Deere Service Advisor you bought. Farmers explained to Motherboard recently how the software running on their tractors make even simple repairs a pain.

John Deere’s tractor firmware prevents the owners from making an unauthorized repairs. Whenever maintenance is needed, an authorized agent needs to swing by and connect to the tractor with diagnostic software. They okay the repair, and the tractor then works. Without that, it’s a very big paperweight. John Deere charges several hundred dollars for service calls, plus $150 per hour for the technician. When techs aren’t available, they have to wait. The alternative many are starting to turn to is pirating the diagnostic software themselves.

Farmers-are-pirating-John-Deere-tractor-software-2
Most of the cracked John Deere programs seem to be coming out of Poland and Ukraine. Gaining access involves finding one of the secretive invite-only forums and paying a membership fee. Once inside, farmers can buy John Deere’s software kits for a few hundred dollars — the cost of just a few maintenance checks. The legality of this is questionable. The Librarian of Congress has approved a temporary exemption to the DMCA that allows owners of land vehicles to circumvent locked down software. Doing it with cracked software is a different matter.

The farm-heavy state of Nebraska is one of those pushing right-to-repair legislation, which would render John Deere’s license agreement void. Then, the company would have to sue individual customers for violating the contract if it wanted to enforce it. Naturally, it’s fighting the legislation hard. Farmers fear what will happen if right to repair doesn’t become law.

Will Heavy Duty Scanner get to decided when their tractors stop working by ending repair service? It’s like when a game developer shuts down the online authentication server for that game you bought five years ago. Except instead a game that cost you $40, it’s a tractor that cost $30,000 and should be able to run for years to come.

How to Cheaply Add Horsepower with an ECM Flash

How-to-Determine-the-Proper-Engine-Rating-1

Electronic engines get a bad rap in the heavy duty diesel engine world due to the amount of issues that can go wrong with them. However, the good news is that if you have an electronic Caterpillar engine you can easily obtain more horsepower and torque via the ECM.

Re-rating an engine is an electronic process of powering up or down the default horsepower via the electronic control module (ECM). Re-rating a diesel engine is the easiest way to beef up an engine without digging into the hard internal parts. You can do modifications to the engine by changing out the pistons, injectors, the camshaft or damper. Adding an updated turbo is also another way to increase HP. However, these modifications are expensive and may not work as required which we will discuss later in this article.

To re-rate a CAT engine one must go to a CAT Dealer or Independent Certified CAT Distributor that has access to CAT Caterpillar ET (Electronic Technician) program. The CAT ET software will plug into the engine and get a diagnostic readout of the engine health. Once in CAT ET the ECM can be “flashed” or reprogrammed to power up or down within a given CAT Engine Family. You can only repower a Caterpillar engine within its given family.

CAT ECM Example Caterpillar ECM

How-to-Determine-the-Proper-Engine-Rating-2

For example a Caterpillar C7 has Families A, B, C, D, E and F. The Horsepower Rating ranges from 207 hp to 330 hp. Family A only has 3 horsepower and torque options whereas Family E has 7 options. If your engine serial number prefix is rated “A” then you must stay in the A Family. The pistons and injectors are different for each Family. It is impossible to simply go up a Family. The higher horsepower E and F Families are reserved for Fire Truck or RV Applications. So if you’re thinking you can easily increase your engine 200-300 HP you are mistaken.

There are two main way to determine the current horsepower rating of your engine. One is by simply looking at the data tag on the valve cover or timing cover. It will have the horsepower and torque rating of the engine. If you suspect the engine may have already been powered up or down from the original OEM specs you have two options: take it to a dealer or dyno testing facility. A CAT Dealer with CAT SIS and CAT ET will be able to plug into the electronic engine and they can do an ECM Download. This process takes about 5 minutes and will give a readout of fault codes, millage, current horsepower rating, torque, oil pressure etc… A dealer generally won’t charge you just for an ECM Readout. You can also have a full dyno test done which will give a full range of performance specs done on the engine.

Other things to consider when doing an ECM re-flash is whether or not the transmission is rated to handle the increase torque load. Transmissions are all about torque rating. An Allison, Eatonor Fuller Transmission all have something called the Nominal Torque Capacity Rating. Whatever that number is multiply it by 100 to get your maximum torque output allowed for that transmission. For example if a transmission has a tag number of RTO – 11909MLL the “11” or first number, is your Nominal Torque Capacity. That engine would be rated at 1100 ft/lbs of torque. Before doing a re-rating you must check to see if your transmission can handle the new workload. If your desired re-rating torque measurement is higher than your transmission’s capacity to handle the load then you will destroy your transmission.
Aftermarket Engine Modifications

CAT ET Adapter Kit CAT ET Adapter Kit

How-to-Determine-the-Proper-Engine-Rating-3

Earlier in the article we touched on doing aftermarket modifications to your CAT engine. We here at Capital Reman build our engines to OEM spec. We do that simply because playing in the “modification sandbox” can cause numerous issues with warranties. If you add aftermarket injectors, turbos, camshaft or manifolds to increase power it will automatically void any manufacturer warranty. The question is do aftermarket mods work? The answer is that they do indeed work and are the same quality as OEM these days however one must be careful tinkering with electronic engines as mods can overload various systems on the engine. Doing modifications can also decrease the life of the engine as it usually means increased exhaust temperature. If you are burning more fuel and creating more exhaust it will wear down the exhaust valves much faster. Aftermarket turbos can also clog easier when paired with an electronic engine with a SCR or DPF Filter. Some CAT Engines have turbo regeneration issues caused by the very intricate balance of re-circulated exhaust gasses by the emissions systems.

Some opt to further optimize their engine by seeking out illegal DPF Delete Kits to remove all emissions technology altogether. It is understandable why some go down that path as early emissions technology was prone to costly maintenance and performance issues however, newer engines with emissions upgrades actually have increased in horsepower and torque. If you do go down the aftermarket route just be aware that the warranty will be voided, performance upgrades are not a guarantee and that you might be further damaging/decreasing the life of your engine. Not to say aftermarket mods aren’t fun! There are tons of great aftermarket companies that make performance turbos, injectors, camshafts and more but get your pocket book ready as internal mods are expensive.
ECM Reflash Costs and Warnings

CAT Engine on DynoRe-flashing an ECM takes about 2 hours from start to finish at a CAT Dealer. The software is accessed via CAT ET and a flash file is downloaded to the ECM. This software is propriety to Caterpillar and is password protected. BUYER BEWARE! There are aftermarket CAT ET programs on for sale on the internet but none of them will work properly as the software needed is password protected at Caterpillar dealer. CAT Corporate charges the dealer about $250 per ECM Re-flash and the dealer will usually just charge labor to you the customer. Overall the cost of an ECM Re-flash is around $500. Not too bad to quickly power up your engine. If you go down the aftermarket/mods route for the ECM use a reputable Re-Power Company like Pittsburgh Power or ECM Diesel.

There are some dangers of ECM Re-Ratings. About 1/30 ECM Re-Flashes ends up with a destroyed ECM. The ECM can become corrupted or simply wipe itself of all data. The new flash file could simply be incompatible with the ECM in the engine and destroy it. Mostly these incidents occur with early model electronic engines that have more unstable electronics. CAT ECMs are not cheap ranging from $1,500-$2,000. You can purchase a used ECM however those are a gamble as the pin connectors and solders can be easily be bent or broken.

How-to-Determine-the-Proper-Engine-Rating-4

That being said, don’t let the possible ECM failure scare ya! Getting a little more juice out of your CAT Engine can easily be done with an ECM Re-Rate just make sure to do your homework and take your engine to a reputable source.

How do I download the latest firmware to my INLINE 6 or INLINE 5 adapter?

This indicates that the adapter has experienced a failure or the memory was corrupted while trying to download new firmware to the adapter. Try removing power and reapplying it, waiting for several seconds to see if the adapter resumes normal operation. If it doesn’t, try downloading the latest software, carefully following instructions on the INLINE 6 software download web page or the INLINE 5 software download web page. If this also fails to work and the adapter is still under warranty, contact your authorized Cummins distributor.

3.Why doesn’t my INLINE 6 or INLINE 5 adapter work with INSITE version 5.4 or other older Cummins software applications?

Versions of INSITE earlier than 6.3 may not be RP1210 compatible. Since the INLINE 6 and INLINE 5 adapters use the RP1210 protocol, they will only work with software that supports the RP1210 protocol. Visit the Compatibility pages on this site to determine what versions of Cummins software applications are compatible with RP1210 and the INLINE 6 and INLINE 5 adapters.

4.Will the INLINE 6 and INLINE 5 adapters work with my QuickCheck III software?

The INLINE 6 and INLINE 5 adapters will not work with the QuickCheck III software.

5.Will the INLINE 6 and INLINE 5 adapters work with non-Cummins RP1210-compatible software applications?

As long as these non-Cummins software applications are truly RP1210-compliant, the Cummins INLINE 6 and INLINE 5 adapters will work with them. However, some non-Cummins applications have proprietary features that make them not fully compliant with the RP1210 standard and they will not work properly with the INLINE 6 and INLINE 5 adapters. Test the application with an INLINE 6 or INLINE 5 adapter to verify compatibility.

6.How do I download the latest PC driver for my INLINE 6 or INLINE 5 adapter?

Download the latest PC driver for your adapter. Note that the INLINE 6 driver and INLINE 5 driver are different and you must use the correct driver for your adapter.

7.How do I download the latest firmware to my INLINE 6 or INLINE 5 adapter?

Download new firmware from the Software Downloads section of this page. Before you download the firmware, verify that the version is newer than what is already in your adapter, which you can find by double-clicking on the INLINE 6/5 tray icon on your computer. Note that you will need the Flash reprogramming utility described below to reprogram firmware in the INLINE 4 and INLINE 5 adapters. Note that the INLINE 6 firmware and INLINE 5 firmware are different and you must use the correct firmware for your adapter.

8.Why am I having issues with the DEF gauge?

INLINE 4: Use Driver Version 5.7.0.1, which has version 4.47 of the firmware.
INLINE 5: Use Driver Version 5.7.0.1, which has version 5.47 of the firmware.

9.How do I know my Inline adapters compatibility?

INLINE 5 and 6 are compatible with both PowerSpec and Insite.
PowerSpec versions of 4.2 and later support the RP1210 protocol and are thus compatible with the INLINE 6 and INLINE 5 adapters. See the chart below for an example of the basic connections needed to hook-up to the vehicle data link.
INSITE versions of 7.5 and later are compatible with the INLINE 6 and INLINE 5. Note that INSITE versions earlier than this are not fully RP1210B compliant and may not work with these adapters. See the chart below for an example of the basic connections needed to hook-up to the vehicle data link.

10.Does Cummins Support other RP1210 Devices with their Electronic Service Tools?

Heavy Duty Truck Scanner Tool like INSITE and Fault Viewer are RP1210 compatible but adapters other than those Cummins adapters are supported by the companies that produce them. The Electronic Service Tools help desk will help diagnose tool issues, however, it is highly recommended any communication issues with non-Cummins adapters should be brought to the adapters support group first before calling Cummins. In most causes, the issue is known or they have a fix they can give you to work around a problem until a driver update is available.

With John Deere Service Advisor PLD File Encryptor/Decryptor you can:

-Decrypt PayLoad (PLD) file to txt/ini format
-Modify PLD file expiration
-Modify PLD factory options such as speed limit (for example change 40 km/h to 50 km/h)
-Adjust PLD file to different product serial
-Encrypt PLD file
-Program controller with modified PLD using Service Advisor
-Support Windows XP

Example: How to change speed limit with  pld files?

Q1:

Question about payload files:

I have pld files of my tractor (6330P) 11 in total.

I see in bottom of each files info about my tractor (option, serial number etc)

Question: My goal is up the speed limit from 40km to 50 km. I think I have to change OPTION=3 to OPTION=5, but do I have to edit each 11 pld file?

A1:
You were right about the speed limit:
you can change OPTION=3 to OPTION=4 or any other you need.
Speed_30kmh = 1;
Speed_35kmh = 2;
Speed_40kmh = 3;
Speed_50kmh = 4;
Speed_ECO = 5;
Speed_NoiseRed_OOS = 6;

For R models the line is different. ROADSPEEDLIMIT=3 change to ROADSPEEDLIMIT=5 or any other you need.

var RoadSpeedLimit_30 = “1”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_35 = “2”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_3840 = “3”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_40E = “4”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_50 = “5”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_50E = “6”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_55 = “7”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_60 = “8”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_60E = “9”;

After you change it, sometimes you still need to lift the speed manually through the display (depending on the tractor model)

You only need to reprogram transmission controller for that.
If you reprogrammed all of them, some settings might have went to default so you might get up to 5 fault codes that you need to configure with SA.

Q2:
Does it work with SA 4.2?
A2:

Service Advisor is just a tool to use pld. Pld editor works without SA.

Q3:
I have a question about trying to up the power of a 6330 to a 6430. If I compare the engine pld of both tractor they are identical (just the info in the bottom is different) So I don’t know how it could up the power if all the code is the same??

A3:
most pld files are made for various models, the info at the bottom determines which part of the pld file will be used for programming. For example:
PRODUCT_MODEL_NO=6115
PERFORMANCE_OPTION_PART_NO=R546973
FACTORY_OPTIONS=RE570443

Q4: Do you have John Deere PLD file editor for sale?

A4: Sorry, we don’t have PLD files. You can search or download from google.
