    Angry Bimmer Boost Flash help

    So iv got a 07 335 that im trying to do the flash on. Car was bought about 2 years ago w/ mods from a girl. She has no idea if the ECU had been flashed already since she also bought it w mods. Anywho im getting an error while trying to read the ECU intitially. Cant be voltage because I even hooked another car up and kept the Volts at 13.2 during the read. Some people say switching a laptop will help (preferably older model) but before I do that does anyone else have any other suggestions or way of veryfing that my ECU is not stock? anyway I can check with the JB4 interface or BT Cable? thanks!

    Oh and Program Reads "File read from ECU not valid,do not use" ill try and attach a photo.

    btw Volts read 12.2 in attached photo because that was an attempt with a battery charger. 3rd time around I tried a vehicle and got it to 13.2 during read.

    Your computer (likely) has an intel processor, but isn't a 4th gen. I'm so sick of these threads on 2007 cars.

    An older computer will also likely fail if you have nicer older computers.

    You're gonna need to get a shiny new box with a intel Haswell chip, or find some $#@!ty AMD box. Or a macbook I hear. Those tend to work ok regardless of chipset it seems, but I don't use Apple so I can't help with that.

    If the AMD didn't work then maybe you have a Dinan flash or something locking you out.

    I'm not sure what the course of action is other than to somehow flash back to stock.

    Honestly, I really didn't do much of anything. The guys here are the ones that help.

    I need to get that Intel bug resolved and a new version of this software out. I need a way to stop time.

    Thatd be great because I bought a windows xp used laptop just for the flash but had intel . This was before I ran into the Amd processor that my girlfriend let me borrow. I wonder if its possible to pay someone to swap out my processor to Amd?

    In a laptop not really as you would have to change the motherboard.
