Clone Xentry Connect C5- Good & Bad Things

I bought “Original Clone Xentry Connect C5” from China’s retail store in 2017/12.

Good thing:

1. Unlike bad products of C5 type C4 motherboard, texture is good
2. DoIP specification

Bad thing:

1. Because it is VM system + 32bit, the reaction is slow (SSD though …)
2. Vediamo can be used, but feeling like driving with DELL D 630 (unsuitable)
3. The DTS Monaco software is installed but the connection with the vehicle is NG (currently retail stores and manufacturer engineers are thinking about how to fix it)
4. Passwords are applied to each drive, making it hard to customize
5. Retail shops and manufacturer engineers lack knowledge (take time to support)

My thoughts

I think purchasing this product is still early.

There are too many trouble elements.

I’ll report it when the situation changes.

What I currently use (stable and comfortable)

New car: eCom (64 bit)
Normal: Clone SDConnect C4 (64 bit)
Old car: Clone C3

Best regards

12.2017 XDOS Activation via Startkeycenter

This is the startkeycenter I used to activate 12.2017 Xdos with old keys. Move the folder to C:>PROGRAM FILES(x86)>MERCEDES BENZ. Launch startkeycenter from folder. Insert keys for xentry only. For DAS you should move the LIC.SLI file to C:PROGRAM FILES(x86)>MERCEDES BENZ>DAS>BIN which will activate it with no timeout. Blacklist is self explanatory which folders they should go in. I don’t claim any of this files…… I am just sharing which is what this is supposed to be about.

How to use 2017.12 MB Star C5 hard disk and how to update Star C5

MB STAR C5 moveable hard disk is used for containing Xentry DAS, please do not use it as a computer system hard disk.


Here two tips to follow.

Option 1. you use C5 disk on your own computer. Tip: advice you not rework it or dismantle it and plug it to the computer to modify the data.

Option 2. you buy the extra computer together with MB Star C5, then you are advised to prepare one blank hard disk for system installation because the computer you bought doesn’t come with hard disk.


How to update DoIP Xentry Connect C5?

Usually you are required to send back the Benz diagnostic tool MB Star C5 hard disk for update unless the engineers can make out the updating software for download.

Attach one picture which shows the hard disk location in the C5 mux.

How to SD connect C4 LAN & WiFi Configuration

Topic: How to configure SD connect C4 LAN & WiFi to solve DAS fault (1.1)-1.501.9500.

Tool: a clone SD Connect C4

Software: 2011/3 Xentry

Status: I’ve started up SDNC to see if the connection is okay, and it turns green when I connect the multiplexer via LAN, but when I try the wifi it stays red. It can also read out some data from the multiplexer so I am assuming the the multiplexer is working fine too

Error: If I connect it to a car, DAS keeps popping up the (1.1)-1.501.9500 error (as I understand that must be some kind of communication problem). The car’s wiring is fine as KTS 520 can communicate with it.


See the ceaser test post results


see the error message DAS gives


SDConnect toolkit says that my mux is available, but when I click on the button in the middle I get an error message, with an error code 750. That button is supposed to be for searching for multiplexers. This kind of gives me the impression that something isn’t quite working right :S
In the toolkit admin, it displays a serial number, says the mux is available. See in the attachments.

It’s working!!! (At least it’s working via LAN, have not tried WLAN yet.)

I can’t believe it :O

Changed value in cal.ini to PART_W (to be exact, didn’t need to change it, it was PART_W, just left it that way :P).

As for the rest of the instructions, I haven’t been able to follow them exactly. I also got a vid with instructions and it’s a little bit different (I’ll post it here if anyone needs though). For example the LAN IP address is, but it seems to be working that way. Also I haven’t been able to configure the “road WLAN”, because it doesn’t matter what I enter into the “key” field, it keeps saying that the key cannot be divided by 2 and therefore it is not hexadecimal

Hope this isn’t going to hinder my chances of using WLAN…

But I’m going to find out in a few anyway.

EDIT: Also tried with LAN IP:, it doesn’t make a difference. MB SD Connect Compact 4 works with both IP-s.

Damn….I clicked on the “Delivery condition” button in the SDconnect toolkit, and now I cannot turn on the WLAN on SDconnect. I think it wrote something into the MUX’s software :S

The LAN connection still works though, so the MUX is not blocked yet luckily….
