BMW ista Windows 10 install:
Setup on Windows 10 64-bit:
After the Windows 10 update (which failed the first two attempts because it turned out the BIOS needed an update first) most applications were fine.
By simply revisiting the COM port settings for my K + DCAN USB to set back to COM9 , minimum buffer sizes and minimum latency Rheingold ran perfectly.
Loader V3.2 and ISTA-P was a bit more tricky. I re-ran the Network Config Tool. I tried Loader V4.3. No joy. However I did it nicely and ISTA-P runs nicely too, and with the excellent Loader V4.3 .
The Windows Networking and Networking Toolkit for Networking and Networking.
—> The setting was to go into Network Settings , select the USB Loopback which has been renamed ” Ethernet 2 ” and rename it to “USB” then go into its settings just like you would ENET lead and set the IPV4 IP to 169.254.0.8 with a mask of 255.255.0.0

Tip: ista p install help
Question: Where (what path) do you place the SDP contents to support flashing from ISTA?  Also, where do you place the BLP contents as well?
Answer: Put the two folders data and data_swi in C:\Rheingold\PSdZ

And registry:
x86
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\BMWGroup\ISPI\Rheingold]
“BMW.Rheingold.Programming.ExpertMode”=”true”
“BMW.Rheingold.Programming.Enabled”=”true”
“BMW.Rheingold.Programming.PsdzDataPath”=”C:\Rheingold\PSdZ\data_swi”
x64
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\BMWGroup\ISPI\Rheingold]
“BMW.Rheingold.Programming.ExpertMode”=”true”

Part 3: BMW icom cable for ista

BMW-icom-cable-for-ista

This part is for those who are looking for a decent bmw icom cable: K+DCAN or ENET or ICOM A2/ ICOM Next

In summary,
It depends on your purpose (diagnostic or coding or programming) and model (Exx or Fxx or others).
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.

For Exx- Series:
Interface = K+DCAN Cable (OBDII to USB) or ICOM
ECU Data Files = SP-Daten
NCS Expert = Coding Software
WinKFP = Programming (Flashing) Software
EDIABAS = Low-Level ECU Communication Software used by NCS Expert & WinKFP
For Fxx- / Ixx- / Gxx-Series, Mini, & Rolls-Royce:
Interface = ENET Cable (OBDII to RJ45 Ethernet) or ICOM
ECU Data Files = PSdZData
E-Sys = Coding Software
E-Sys = Programming (Flashing) Software

About: BMW ICOM
ICOM A (also ICOM A2, ICOM A3, ICOM Next A): main interface
ICOM B: adapter for programming multimedia in E series
ICOM C: adapter for old BMW with round 20 pin diagnostic plug
ICOM D: adapter for motorcycles
ISTA+ (AKA Rheingold or ISTA-D)
DIAGNOSTICS for All Vehicles
PROGRAMMING for F/I/G/RR & MINI, but requires an ICOM
ISTA-P
PROGRAMMING traditionally for all chassis, but is being phased out by August 2017, except for legacy E-series.
Replacement ECU’s must be NEW
YOU HAVE TO KNOW before you buy ICOM A2 or ICOM A3 or ICOM Next:

ICOM A vs ICOM A2 vs ICOM A3
Modified ICOM A2 for vehicles with OBD access receives a significantly more powerful processor and more storage capacity. And robust aluminium case will help to avoid damage when using in harsh environments. It works better in cooling, runs faster and works more stable, not easier broken than older ICOM A.

ICOM A3 can program all units for all BMW series expect media system, and work more stable and has stronger compatibility than ICOM A2, A1.

ICOM NEXT vs the old ICOM
-> much faster in BMW F and G series ..
-> supports gigabit Ethernet too to be future proof, there currently is not gigabit Ethernet protocol defined yet for autos. Also it has USB3.0 instead of USB2.0 and a better wifi card.

ICOM A3 vs ICOM Next
Reply 1: Both of these have the same hardware. None of them are clones of anything also. A3 is fully china version of ICOM, there is no original version looking like this crap. NEXT is just looking as genuine NEXT, but with old A1/A2 hardware inside, like A3.
Reply 2: I recommend buying an original Icom next. It is priced roughly at 500 euro. Take in consideration that you will probably work on cars that are worth 30-40k euro or maybe more and if your chinese icom fails you even once, you will be spending a lot of money on a bricked ecu.
Reply 3: You can have a Icom Next HQ clone if you don’t have much budget of it. This tool handles multiprogramming and coding quite nicely, much faster in BMW F and G series and if flashing the complete vehicle. It supports gigabit Ethernet too to be future proof, there currently is not gigabit Ethernet protocol defined yet for autos. will be compatibility for future cars. Also, it has a better wifi card and USB3.0 instead of USB2.0 (USB 3.0 is theoretically more than ten times faster than USB 2.0. We need usb 2.0 or usb 3.0 flash drive formatted with FAT32.)
ICOM NEXT A vs ICOM A2
ICOM Next wins in price!!!
2019 ICOM Next A+B+C price: 359.00 usd
ICOM A2+B+C price: 519.00 usd
ICOM Next A wins in performance!!
->handles multiprogramming and coding quite nicely

BMW ICOM Next wins in speed!!
->faster startup and standard wifi
->much faster in BMW F and G series ..
->much faster if flashing the complete vehicle
(Flashing of NBT is not faster with icom next its same like icom A and A2)

Next wins in future cars!
->will be compatibility for future cars
-> supports gigabit Ethernet too to be future proof, there currently is not gigabit Ethernet protocol defined yet for autos.

ICOM Next wins in connection!
-> has a better wifi card
->has USB3.0 instead of USB2.0

note: USB 3.0 vs. USB 2.0
The USB 2.0 standard offers a theoretical maximum signaling rate of 480 megabits per second, while USB 3.0 defines a maximum rate of 5 gigabits per second. In other words, USB 3.0 is theoretically more than ten times faster than USB 2.0

We need usb 2.0 or usb 3.0 flash drive formatted with FAT32.
ICOM Next wins in PCB design!

How to convert HALOGEN to LCI HEADLIGHT with a ICOM cable

It’s a HALOGEN TO LCI HEADLIGHT Tutorial!!!!

Excuse my English I hope this help some of you guys!

In this site you will see the diagram for wiring!

Now after you know what your going to do with the wiring uninstall the frm and install frm2.

You will need NCS expert and Winkfp and inpa! and the icom cable obd to the computer! when you get the cable just read instruction and you ill be fine.. but just in case if your cable didnt bring the instruction here is how to program the cable make sure the computer read the cable if not download the driver after your pc read cable go to start on computer right click properties, device manager,then PORT click on it look for the cable then double click then a window will open lick on port setting (tap) click on advance at the bottom and make sure to set COM to COM1 and the latency to 1 it should be on 16 from default click ok and you are ready to go!

After you install all this software you need to open NCS expert to Change VO and VIN to yor frm2. And then program it!

OK now if you have AHL you need to add this VOs $522 and $524 to CAS and FRM and change production date that is going to be like this for example (#1205) you have to change it to at least #0307. and if you have just xenon add $522 and production date #0307. NOW question is how to do it.

open NCS expert on file tap load profile select expert mode F1,F3 select chassis e89 and select CAS now F2 (ENTER FA) select chassis again then enter vin# of the car

now a new window will open with a list of numbers.. is gonna say attribute ADD and OK at the bottom now we are going to add $522 and $524 and click in top of the first one that is the production date and hit the delete bottom on your keyboard and add the #0307 and click OK then F6 back then choose F4 choose CAS then F2 change job to FA_WRITE and F3 execute job and you are done!

Now you have to pass that information to “NFRM”

1.open NCS expert

2.File-Load profile

3.select EXPERMODE

4.press F1

5.press F3

6.select E89<for E90>

7.select CAS

8.F6 back

9.now you will be able to see your (FG) VIN # at top and (FA) VO

10.press F4<CHOOSE ECU>

11.select NFRM

12.after that select F2 chenge Job

13 choose FA_WRITE

14.F3 executive job wait a little bit and it will say courin beenet or coded ended something like that! now your VO are the same CAS and NFRM

NOW to change VIN

I did it the same way as CAS but instead of choose FA_WRITE i Choose FG_SCHREIBEN

1.open NCS expert

2.File-Load profile

3.select EXPERMODE

4.press F1

5.press F3

6.select E89<for E90>

7.select CAS

8.F6 back

9.now you will be able to see your (FG) VIN # at top and (FA) VO

10.press F4<CHOOSE ECU>

11.select NFRM

12.after that select F2 chenge Job FG_SCHREIBEN then F3 execute Job

now to make sure everything is good Go back to the main menu (or restart ncs-expert) and get the vehicle order from the “NFRM” module. Make sure NFRM returns YOUR VIN and YOUR VO. We want the VIN (FG) and VO (FA) to be the same in both CAS and NFRM. To do this same steps load profile expertmode F1,F3 select chassis and select “NFRM” NOT CAS!!! and it should be your VIN and VO the same as CAS.

Now to program NFRM you have to use Winkfp but first you need to know the part number of the NFRM using inpa that is gonna show on inpa FRM_70. go to inpa folder and look for inpaload select chassis and a window will open and select the first one functional jobs then f2 indet in there you will look for FRM_70 and copy the ZUB that is the part number IT should say for example (9204527) this is a example copy that number down and close inpa. now open Winkfp and choose confort mode F1 enter ZUSB put the number that you wrote down here and ill look for your frm automatically click ok then F4 Enter Vin put your car vin # click ok and then update ZUSB look for the one that gives you in the first step for ex(FRM2) then click on done! if it gives you an error 106 is because you dont have the cable plug in into the car! after that lick on F3 Prog. ZB UPdate and wait until is done and you are done!

Now to make sure BMW Diagnostic Software NFRM is default in NCS expert

load profile then go back to file and click edit file and click on FSW/PSW and uncheck the option “FSW/PSW manipulate with FSW_PSW.MAN” then click ok and choose profile info and on the name put whatever name that will remember you that thats the profile to code to factory any ecu using NCS expert then click ok and ok again that windows will close and click file save as and put the name that you choose.. Then F1, F3 choose chassis then CAS then F4 choose NFRM then F2 SG_codieren then F3 done!

Now to code with NCS expert you will need to create a FSW_PSW TRC file..

here is a video on Youtube but just in case if the video is not working ill write it down

To do this you have to Open NCS expert load profile expertmode

same F1,F3 select chassis select CAS F6 back choose ecu F4 NFRM and change job F2 CODIERDATEN_LESEN then f3 execute job now dont close ncs expert and go to ncs expert folder then to work folder and you will see that there is a FSW_PSW trc file open the file change what ever you need to change and after you change everything save the file.. go to file and click save as and write FSW_PSW.MAN now go back to NCS expert and Click on file edit file and go to FSW_PSW click on it and make sure to check the option FSW_PSW manipulate with FSW_PSW.MAN click ok then choose ECU F4 select the Ecu that you choose to read with CODIERDATEN_LESEN earlier and now change to to SG_codieren and F3 execute job and You are DONE coding!

THANK YOU FOR READING I HOPE THIS WILL HELP SOMEONE I SPENT 2 WEEK TO LEARN ALL THIS AND NOW I WANT TO SHOW IT TO YOU GUYS!
