Rest assured, our software is designed to keep your CVN (Checksum Verification Number) and flash counter untouched. This means our software will be virtually invisible to dealer level diagnostic tools.

About MG Flasher:

MG flasher provides the user flashing capability of various prepared maps along with custom flashing option for BMW Fxx/Gxx series equipped with B58 engines and controlled by the DME86X ECU. MG flasher is a mobile application that has been prepared for Android users (iOS version coming soon)
The tuning process has never been easier. Simply connect the mobile device to your OBD connector with the supported Wi-Fi adapter or K+DCAN cable and tune your BMW within minutes with the provided OTS maps or use custom option for flashing custom maps. There are different tuning stages available (OTS maps), outlined below which are offered to meet your specific driving needs!

Our MG flasher also offers many unique functions included with the purchase of the Flashing license:
  • OTS maps/ All OTS pack (subject to additional cost)
  • Custom flashing – flash custom maps
  • Logger - log real time data and plot it into graphs for troubleshooting and optimizing (subject to additional cost)
  • Diagnostic - Read and clear BMW specific DTC's
  • Reset various adaptations, restore coding
  • CVN number (Checksum Verification Number) along with flashing counter stays untouched. This means our software will be virtually invisible to dealer level diagnostic tools
Various other custom options are available with each OTS map including:
  • Exhaust burbles
  • Cold start with cat heating delete (racing/off-road use only)
  • Speed limit removal
  • HP gauge and TQ gauge calibrated according to the power level
  • More in the future updates
OBDII Wi-Fi adapter or K+DCAN cable with OTG adapter is required for flashing
Between creating our flashing tool, to extensively testing our performance software on our in-house dyno, we had our work cut out for us. For starters we purchased a brand new F30 340i B58 with MPPSK which we used to develop our solution for programming. Day in and day out, tirelessly for the last seven months we worked towards unlocking the SPC5777M that runs the DME861.

Our tester car had MPPSK software equipped on it to begin with. We decided to flash/downgrade our 340i with non MPPSK (stock non-performance software) and establish a baseline. From this stock (non-performance) flash we began our research and development. Analyzing and studying software documents along with a multitude of test runs and extensive data logging on both the dyno and the road enabled us to deliver you our end product. A product that does not just focus on maximum power but also reliability and ensures longevity of your vehicle and its components.

Our facility is equipped with a V-Tech dynamometer, that provides us with very accurate and realistic graphs and numbers. All our dyno runs will be displayed in horsepower/torque @ the crankshaft, the same as how BMW rates their engines. We did not apply any smoothing options to our dyno diagrams.

For a point of reference, displayed will be the power output of both Original and MPPSK software based off our measurement of them on our dyno. This can give you an idea of the exact delta gain of our software vs the various stages of what is considered stock software.

ORIGINAL: 343hp 360 ftlb / 488NM @ Crank
MPPSK: + 40hp + 34 ftlb (383hp/395ftlb / 535NM @ Crank)

Our offered solutions are available in the following stages and are available as OTS maps programmable through MG flasher:

STAGE 1: + 69hp + 63ftlb / 85NM Torque (412hp 423ftlb / 573NM @ Crank)
A great, entry level software flash designed for all stock components and 91 Octane or greater. This software is intended to be a step up from BMW Performance Software (MPPSK), which reduces the torque spikes, increases power and smooths out the overall powerband. You will notice an increase in responsiveness as well as drivability.

Technical Information:
Boost Pressure: 16 PSI (1.1 Bar)

Options
Exhaust Burble
Cold Start Delete
Display NBT HP/TQ gauges calibration

STAGE 2: +99hp +118ftlb (442hp 478ftlb / 648NM @ Crank)
For the spirited driver that wants the most out of their stock component vehicle. This software is intended to safely maximize your vehicle’s potential performance. The power curve has been delicately engineered to eliminate any dips in the overall powerband as well as maximizing delivery of that power throughout the entire RPM range. Designed to work with 93/94 Octane for best results.
*Transmission Tuning Recommended* - See technical information for more.

Technical Information:
Boost Pressure: 19 PSI (1.3 Bar)

Options
Exhaust Burble
Cold Start Delete
Display NBT HP/TQ gauges calibration

Transmission Limiter Information:
The 340i is equipped with an 8HP50 transmission where the factory torque limiter is set to 550NM which is roughly 400ftlb tq @ the crank. For the best results and proper smoothing of the torque curve without any transmission related torque intervention we have found that is best to increase the limiter within the transmission software. We can present you with two options to implement this on your vehicle:

Option 1: Lifting the limiter in the transmission ECU which can be done for example with xHP Flashtool - based on information from their Facebook Page the flashing possibility arriving soon.
Option 2: Bringing the car to our shop for reprogramming of the transmission ECU or other tuner equipeed with tuning tools to capable to read 8HP software.


STAGE 3: +XX HP + XX Torque (Actual Dyno Numbers @ Crank) – in development
This software will be intended for those of you who will modify their exhaust by fitting either a catless downpipe or a downpipe fitted with a high flow catalytic converter. We will be fitting our tester vehicle with both options, analyze the pros and cons of either and will soon have a solution released after extensive testing on both the dyno and road.

Please feel free to reach out to us with PM or by sending us an email at [email protected]
We are looking forward to your feedback. Thank you all so much for your consideration and taking the time to read this! We will keep up on maintaining this post with the newest and most relevant information for you all.

Below are examples of our dyno diagrams:

This is how our new and 'improved' Stage 2 ++ tune looks like:

Big applause and shout out to MG Flasher for making my F30 2018 340xi 6speed feel exactly how I imagined it could feel... but way way better.

Long story short, ever since I got the car in early 2018 I always felt it honestly sucked in terms of spirited driving experience. High rpm wot shifts were laggy, felt the car was hesitating, it felt timid when asked to perform, it did not like to play, I was far from impressed, it dit however do rather well as a highway cruiser, comfy and relaxed.

I threw a JB+ and an Intake on it and yes it improved power a bit but the whole experience still left me looking for other cars.

For some time I have been following on forums for flash tune development and we all know the groups who stand out. I contacted all the groups with various questions and determined that for what I need, a Stage 2 from MG Flasher is exactly what I was looking for.

I honestly could not believe the difference not only in power but also driving experience.
The car is a completely different beast, now it accelerates, it pulls all the way to redline in every gear, when you shift at high rpm it pulls again hard and consistently, it’s unreal. It feels like a twin turbo the way it pulls to redline and does not run out!
The car feels factory in terms of power delivery, consistent and smooth, but beasty, and now I simply love the car.

If you are not impressed by your B58 and deep down you know it can do more, well it can... much much more.

Stop waiting and put a Stage 2 MG Flasher tune on it. The only regret you will have is not having it done sooner.

Cheers

Notes: Car is bone stock & std exhaust MG Stage 2 94 Octane

Initial response from iOS users suggest that iPhone 11 Pro devices only support using official ethernet lightning adapters. If you don't already own the official adapter, we highly recommend purchasing an ENET Wi-Fi adapter that costs less and connects wirelessly.

BMW Logger - unit conversions and new parameters added
Update version 204

16-9_Widescreen.jpg




MG Flasher has an updated logger available for your BMW. You can now independently select from metric to imperial units for a given measurement type. We have added PSI, AFR, lb-ft, °F and a few others to the unit options. The date in log filename has been standardized to “Apr-04-2020_04:20:20PM” format, it will also include stage and map information.

More ECUs have become supported in the logger. We added more RAM variables to log including: Engine Oil Temperature, Vehicle Speed, Fuel Tank Level, Target Engine Temperature, Intercooler Pump Speed. If this wasn’t enough, you can now import custom RAM variables in *.CSV format (targeted towards custom tuners and enthusiasts) and live gauges have adjusted font size for better legibility.

For those with four-cylinder engines (B46/B48), we have removed unnecessary logging of cylinders 5 and 6 for improved sample rates (six-cylinder engines (B58) are unaffected).

We can’t wait to release our next update featuring new custom code version 3 (CCv3). Look out for another post with more details soon!

Warm Regards,

Custom Code v3 delivers optimal performance with Max Cooling for your BMW!
MG Flasher update ver. 207

16-9_Widescreen.jpg


Introducing MG Flasher’s latest feature: Max Cooling On-The-Fly. With a simple button combination sequence, you can enable the Max Cooling option without re-flashing the car!

There will now be two option available for cooling your engine: Regular cooling and Max Cooling. Use “regular cooling” with regular driving, then switch to “Max Cooling” with a quick and easy button sequence. Max Cooling is achieved by lowering the target engine temperature and increasing the target intercooler coolant volume flow.

Watch the movie and see how it works!

The update will require to reflash your ECU using newest MG Flasher ver. 207. You will be presented with popup information when flashing (custom code update to v3.3). Before flashing, there will be a few options to select. “Cooling” will enable you to choose the “Regular Target Engine Temperature” as preferable for everyday driving - that is set when Max Cooling On-The-Fly is not enabled. This will then allow you to enable adjustable “Max Cooling On-The-Fly” which will present two sliders: “Max Cooling Target Engine Temperature” and “Max Cooling Target Intercooler Coolant Volume Flow” both settings used when Max Cooling On-The-Fly is on.

Target engine temperature and intercooler coolant volume flow will change between your slider settings (configured before flashing) and the default values when toggling Max Cooling On-The-Fly. OEM target engine temperature is 110°C and the OEM intercooler coolant volume flow is 1500 L/h under full load operation. You can adjust the values from 90°C - 110°C and from 1500 L/h – 1800 L/h.
  • To enable Max Cooling On-The-Fly – Switch to Sport Mode + via the Driver Experience Switch and push the Dome Light button twice within 2.5 seconds - check engine light will blink twice as a confirmation.
  • To disable Max Cooling On-The-Fly – Switch to Sport Mode + via the Driver Experience Switch and push the Dome Light button twice within 2.5 seconds - check engine light will blink once as a confirmation.
Please note: Max Cooling is currently only available on F-series and supported B48, B58 engines. Support for G-series is just around the corner! Switchable ethanol maps will be temporarily unavailable until next update which will allow you to switch between multiple maps On-The-Fly!

We also added an indicator when switching Burble Levels. The engine light will blink twice to provide confirmation that you’ve successfully adjusted your burble settings On-The-Fly. See the User Manual for more details. Just another example of how MG Flasher improves user experience.

There are plenty more exclusive features, including switchable maps, coming soon to MG Flasher for your BMW F&G series B46, B48 and B58 engines. Our team @MG Flasher is working hard towards new innovative ideas and solutions to make your overall driving experience more enjoyable.



Stay Tuned!

We are proud to present the world’s first performance map switch on BMW G series without the need to reflash the ECU. The goal of this function is to give you, the user, the ability to switch dynamically to another map-set while the engine is running. This can be only be achieved under the following conditions:
1: Switchable maps must be enabled in your software.
2: Engine must be running.
3: Vehicle must be at a standstill.

Watch our detailed instructional video here:

Switchable Map Procedure (conditions mentioned above are assumed in the following steps):

Step 1: Press the Brake Pedal 5 times consecutively within 5 seconds and then hold the Brake Pedal on the 5th press. You should notice the Check Engine Light begin to blink; this is a confirmation marker that tells you if you have performed this first step correctly. If you do not encounter a blinking Check Engine Light, then you must check the condition listed above and retry Step 1.

Step 2: While the Check Engine Light is blinking, fully press and hold the Gas Pedal to W.O.T (wide open throttle) position. The actual engine RPM will not rise during this procedure, so there will be no chance of over-revving the engine. The RPM gauge will immediately point to the currently saved map-set (ie. 2000 RPM = Map #2). If no map-set was previously selected, then you will see RPM go directly to a value of 0 indicating the default map-set. Steps 1 & 2 allow the user to see the currently selected map-set.

Step 3: To select a new map-set, fully press and hold the Gas Pedal to W.O.T (while still pressing the Brake Pedal from Steps 1 & 2) for a period of 5 seconds or longer. The map-set will coincide with the current state of the Driver Experience Switch and MSA Button.
• ECO – MAP-SET 1 (1000 RPM)
• COMFORT – MAP-SET 2 (2000 RPM)
• SPORT – MAP-SET 3 (3000 RPM)
• SPORT+ – MAP-SET 4 (4000 RPM)
• SPORT+ and 2 quick MSA presses – MAP-SET 0 (DEFAULT) (0 RPM)
After 5 seconds of holding the Gas Pedal at W.O.T position (while still holding the Brake Pedal) you will notice the RPM on the dash will reflect the choice you have selected (ie. 3000 RPM = Map #3).

Step 4: Release the Brake and Gas Pedals fully to exit the selection process. RPM on the dash will return to actual engine RPM and the Check Engine Light will stop blinking. Now you can enjoy your newly selected map-set!

Keep an eye out for the official release coming soon!

MG Flasher - BMW Tuning App - User Experience Update ver. 225
16-9_Widescreen.jpg




Tuning your BMW should not have to be difficult; we focus on MG Flasher user experience at every opportunity. To help those with slower internet connections, we reduced the size of our OTS maps files by over 98%; downloading a map update is very fast now. We have also improved the synchronization of user/car info by removing the extra loading on each MY CAR page entry. Speed of purchase redemption is much faster too with the added benefit of a separate page called SYNC CAR where you can sync your licenses and OTS maps from all your devices (Android, iOS). Dealers will find the online shop now shows licenses linked to customer vehicles. Finally, the way we show available maps for each stage has been placed on the new AVAILABLE STAGE VERSIONS page. Current version and release date are indicated on screen when you are choosing between 91oct/95ron and 93oct/98ron maps. Furthermore, you can expand specific items to read what was changed in each release. Together with a few other technical improvements the overall speed has increased across the entire app.
