4-2

Following is the MaxiTPMS TS608 Service Tablet Reviews.

1.I am actually a mechanic at Midas and use this daily

I am a mechanic at Midas, i use this tool almost on a daily basis. It truly is a all in one scan tool it does take a minute to learn how the functions are set up and used. I rated this as five stars because it is an excellent scan tool but there was one thing I disliked but if you read the fine print they disclose it Which is the scan tool can only reprogram program Autel TPMS sensors, Any and all others will not work. You can still wake up sensors and do relearns on all make and models I have tried atleast. The universal ones that my shop buys Will not work but this is still a very good scan tool for all purpose functions. I highly recommend looking up the three or four tutorial videos on YouTube about the scan tool. They are very informative about this tool and everything in the film has been correct. I have use this tool on at least 30 or so different vehicles for all different reasons and have not had any issue with it. Depending how good your Wi-Fi is it will also double as a tablet/laptop. I compared it to a Nother text $2,500 Snap-On scan tool and mine can do everything his can. Plus you get the wireless functions that are awesome.

2.All around nice service tool

Recent purchase. These are my early impressions of the tool. All around nice service tool. Comes in a nice quality case that securely holds the tablet, manual and wires in place. The tablet itself has a nice screen and rugged padding for protection that looks like it will hold up over time in shop use. Does everything it says it will do. Full autel obd2 scanner service TPMS tool. Reads/erases codes and reads/graphs live data. Performs automated system tests. Resets service lights and performs maintenance procedures. I even hooked it up to a hybrid vehicle just to see if it would access and test all modules, and it worked beautifully. The interface is straightforward and easy to use.

Now for the bad. My only complaint with the tool is the poor English translations. Some statements in the manual and on the tool can be confusing due to the translation from Chinese. My feeling is that when companies sell internationally, translations to other languages should be done properly.

All around I am happy with the purchase. For the money, I don’t think there is a more complete or quality system on the market. You not only get a full service TPMS tool, but a complete basic diagnostic scan tool. Fix the translation issues and this would easily be a 5 star product.

3.better recording, better information

If your looking for a tpms tool, get this one, if your looking for a scan tool under $1000, get this one. I still grab my modis ultra for diagnostics, it has faster live data, faster loading screens, better recording, better information, and a built in lab scope, but this is a solid backup, I take it with me in the weekends from OBD2TOOL, it’s our only tpms and oil service light tool, and worth more than it’s price.

4.Works ok for home use. Nice to relearn your car the new TPMS sensor locations after tire change/rotation.

This is not a professional tool. Reason for this “Downgrade” is that it only programs Autel’s own TPMS sensors. Easy to use OBD II bluetooth to learn your car new sensor locations, but not able to “Start” other brand’s sensors, like Herth+Bus sensors.

V2017.12 MB SD Connect C4/C5 BMW ICOM/ICOM A2 A3 HDD Setting

Customer’s problem:
We had purchased one set MB SD connect C5 with internal HDD from obd2tool, We really appreciate the faster shipment, all is well packed dhl week quickly received. But when we install the HDD to our computer, we have blue screen and doesn’t access to computer windows. We are wondering if we get the broken HDD……

Our Answers:

The BMW ICOM ICOM A2 A3 or MB STAR C4 C5 drives we assign to our customers are generally AHCI-mode hard drives with SATA port.

If your laptop BIOS is not set to the same hard drive mode (AHCI mode), if you connected to our hard drive to your computer, there will be a blue screen or can not find the hard drive.Please make sure your HDD is set to AHCI in the BIOS.

To check this you turn the laptop on and press F2, it will enter the BIOS. Now go to “ONBOARD DEVICES” or “SYSTEM CONFIGURATION” then go to “SATA OPERATION” press enter and make sure its set to AHCI not ATA or any other option.

Please have a minimum of 2GB of ram/memory in your laptop, a lot of people only have 512mb or 1gb, it is OK but the new system may run slow and its recommend to really have 4GB ram, but 2GB also can be enough.

– We can supply Laptop + Software all ready for you.
– We can supply FULL package C4 SD + Laptop + Software for you. MB Star Diagnostic Tools
– We can carry out some C4 SD repairs.
– Remote installations available (if you supply the correct HDD size and install the correct Windows OS).
– Teamviewer remote support available

Ktag Kess unlock CRP3 LPC2478 via J-link (Pinouts attached)

As you know, for crp3 we can do the trick for unlock crp3 heating on KTAG or KESS V2 programmer or buy a new NXP and write it (only one time)
Here are some questions & answers on Google form, questions about “how will you use J-ink if its crp3 ?”…

Q: Can I update NXP directly if at this moment I have Ktag 6.070? Or I will need to replace it with new one and then to update to 7.030 ?
A: if your actual fw is crp3 you will have to do “heating trick ” or change nxp, you will know if jlink doesn’t recognise firmware ( i think message about cannot find cpu chain or something like that) , simple

Q: More information this real version or china version? and whats this you can update or or only talk?? thanks
A: this is fw 7.030 we are talking about REAL firmware, not modding number in sw or similar, about second question i don’t understand what you ask.

Q: Need connect 12v ? my led red always off if not connect 12v

A: LED needs to monitor the state of the processor and it must be switched by the controller. If you do not have the power on the controller when connected by USB, then connect the other power source.

Q: How work on ktag, i tried but led already on

A: LED need to monitor the state of the processor and it must be switched by the controller. If you do not have the power on the controller when connected by USB, then connect the other power source.
To flash the LPC2478 via J-link, the level of protection should be CRP0, ie protection should be disabled. If security levels CRP1 and CRP2 have the ability to erase and reflash LPC2478 via UART, eg via USB to UART TTL adapter ftdi232 or cp2102 and Flashmagic program.

Q: LPC2478 connect Flash Magic, KESS or KTAG?

A: …KESS V2 & KTAG…both ok

Note: not all ktag 5.001 can be read with j-link
some are crp3 protected
some are not

Attachment 1: Code Read Protection (CRP)

Attachment 2: Here are all pinouts

Attachment 3: Photos ofLPC2478 connect Flash Magic

It allows you to erase the NXP MCUs on both Kess & KTag via UART0. This will work for firmwares up to CRP2. CRP0, best off using J-Link as it only takes 30s as opposed to 30 minutes. If you’ve blocked your KTag properly (CRP3), it won’t help you. You will need to swap the processor.
