ok...so by my thinking REVO is administered via the VAG-COM right?

So whats to stop people owning VAG-COM uploading the revo software onto their own cars? Via illegal revo software or home written applications?

yes

Oh well, one born every minute!!

You'd better get your cracked copy of Vagcom, write a program on you PC and upload it.

Post back with your results.

Not a very bright idea publicising that you want to obtain code illegally is it? What's wrong with paying for it?

I'm pretty sure the vag-com probably costs more than the Revo software to

No, Revo is around twice the price.

On a serious note - go for the demo and you'll be throwing your money at them for the full programme!

Agreed you won't be disappointed

Go for the free 5 hour demo then simply set the clock back after 4 hours 59mins - No? [:D]

Funny you should say that, it is possible if you know where to look..[B)]

All I can say is it's not the clock on the dashboard that you need to reset, it's something closer to the service indicator in the ECU program.

Revo software is encrypted, but anybody with some experience in decryption can work it out. I did toy with the idea of having a fiddle, but don?t fancy killing my ECU.

Before anybody flames me, I learnt machine code when I was 11 ! and I'm now an old git.... [:)]

car ECU software is coded to the max

if it was that easy then everyone would be doing it

also you mentioned cracked software, do you trust the source enough to load it on?

years ago when it was EPROM chips in ecu's you could copy them no bother and the car companies caught on to chipping ect and changed it so that the only way to alter it was to re-write the whole ECU.

I remember one guy who had an RS500 which came with two chips. a lower 300bph one IIRC and a 500 bhp one. However when he bought his it only had the lower one in it and not the higher one and ford wanted a fortune to get a new one. he then seen one for sale in a mag which was a copy EPROM and got it thinking it was ok. but his engine went pop not long after fitting it as the software was buggered [:D]

leave the hard stuff to the guys who know how [;)]

to be honest -

ONE - i dont give a %^*& how encrypted the code is 64 bit 128 bit whatever - if someone wanted to crack it they WOULD.

TWO - where do you think the revo remap was born from - do you think it just dropped off a tree in the form of some machine code....hmm.......?????

SOMEONE WROTE IT (collective description)

therefore i'm posing the question - it wouldn?t be impossible for another individual possessing the required knowhow and willing to devote the required resources, both in terms of financial and duration to make another version and u/load it onto an ecu would it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
