         CMD 2010-12 Cummins 6.7L Transmission parameters.

GM Gas

         E39 Ė added support for 12661794

         E83B Ė added support for 6 new OSís, parameter changes for all OSís.

GM Gas

     E92 Ė added support for 3 new OSís.

     E80 Ė added support for 4 new OSís.

     E78 Ė added support for 3 new OSís.

     E39 Ė added support for 6 new OSís, parameter changes for all OSís.

     T43 Ė added support for 3 new OSís.

GM Diesel

     AL5 Ė fixed calibration display issue for calibration D5008 in OS 15196784

     E98 Ė initial calibration release & DSP release for USA E98 controllers.

     E98 Ė parameter enhancements for existing OSís.

     A50 Ė initial calibration release for 2011-15 A50 controllers.

     E20 Ė added support for 2 new OSís.


     Added Auto-Lock for selected operating systems for A50, E78, E92 and T43 controllers. A minor restriction exists for the A50 Auto-Locking: Auto-Locked files cannot be cal-flashed into A50 controllers, they must always be full-flashed.

     Added DMA PIDs to E92 controllers.

     Added DMA PIDs to E98 controllers.

     Prevented tool-tip popup that showed the mapís filename from displaying on the Scan Tool maps. The tool-tip now only displays when the mouse pointer hovers over the map title.

Bug Fixes:

     Default scan tool maps were not being included in the V7 installation defaults folder.

EFILive V8

Known Issues:

     When Black Box Logging PIDs from an ECM and TCM simultaneously and a PID is selected from the transmission controller (TCM) that has an identically named PID in the engine controller (ECM), (i.e. RPM) then when the log file is opened in the V8 software for viewing, the TCM PID will be displayed as if it originated from the ECM. The PID's data will have correctly been logged from the TCM, only its name will appear to indicate that it was logged from the ECM.
Workaround: None. It is a restriction of the *.efi (V7.5 log file format). That restriction will be removed and the TCM PIDs will display their true origin once the V8 scan tool software is available.


     Cummins transmission PIDís have been added to the V8 Scan Tool.† (Option will not be enabled in V7 Scan Tool)

     Cummins Fast CAN Mode (for CMD and CME controllers) gives the ability to control flash speed.† Fast CAN Mode is estimated to be 40% faster.

     Added Pass-thru data logging.

     Added user definable Scan Tool Maps on the [F2: Scan]->[F6: Maps] tab page.

     Update the Scan Tool Chart right-click menu copy options to make them consistent with the newly released Scan Tool Mapís right-click options.

Bug Fixes:

     When saving *.pld data log files that were originally imported from *.efi (black box and V7 data log files) the original filename is used with the new *.pld extension.

     When importing *.efi data log files, if any PIDs were not able to be imported and the data was saved as a *.pld file, then the data in the *.pld file would not be loaded correctly the next time the *.pld file was loaded.

     When importing *.efi data log files, that contain both engine and transmission PIDs, while selecting only an engine or transmission controller instead of both, a list of PIDs that could not be imported (because their controller was not selected) is displayed.

     Using the task-bar, short-cut menu to open *.pld files while EFILive V8 was already running did not work.

     Fixed problem with calculated PIDs not resolving partially qualified PID names. E.g. pid("WO2S.WO2AFR1") would resolve correctly, pid("WO2AFR1") would not.

     Fixed problem where the quick-start list, right-click, context menu item ĒUpdate All ItemsĒ would delete the VIN and OS from *.efi items in the Scan Tool quick start list.

     USB Manager is now supported on Windows 10.

     Fixed CVNs not displaying correctly for speedometer and System segments on some E67 controllers.

     Authentication code was not being generated correctly for very old FlashScan V2 devices.

     Fixed Access Violation if a PID selection filter is active when a new scan data log file is opened.

     Fixed Scan Tool not displaying signed negative values correctly.


Known Issues:

     When logging DMA PIDs (i.e. PIDs whose names end with ď_MĒ or ď_DMAĒ), if the ignition is switched off for an extended period while data logging but data logging is not terminated, then when the ignition is switched on again the data log automatically continues. However the DMA PIDs may no longer return valid data. EFILive recommends stopping the data log and restarting the data log when switching off the ignition for extended periods.


     Updates for new CMD/CME controllers

Bug Fixes:

     Prevented timer signals being incorrectly directed to the low speed CAN bus by blue FlashScan devices.
