    TunerPro comprehensive XDF for 0411 PCM - with Checksums

    Firstly, I take no credit for any of this. Dimented24x7 was the highly talented individual who made all of this possible. He wrote a flash utility (read & write) for the 12200411 PCM, and also developed multiple TunerPro XDF files for 2001 model year Operating System 12202088.

    Several years ago when a "free" flash utility appeared to be on the horizon, I began work on merging and streamlining the multiple XDF files created by Dimented24x7, into a single comprehensive XDF file.

    When the free flash utility failed to emerge, I abandoned this XDF project.

    After reading numerous posts over the past few months, I realized that there were people still trying to make all of this work.

    So, I recently finished what I had started several years ago.

    Please read the attached PDF document BEFORE using the XDF files. You must make certain that the attached DLL file (plug-in) has been saved to the correct folder on your computer, before the initial opening of the XDF file.

    Safeguards (maximum & minimum limits) have been placed on all of the parameters, to reduce the risk of a flash that could damage (brick) the PCM. All parameters include narrative comments to assist the user with better understanding what the parameter does, and what units (e.g. miles / PSI / seconds) the parameter uses and references.

    These XDF files are for use with the 2001 and 2002 PCM (512Kb), with Service Number 12200411. The Operating System (OS) in the PCM must be either 12202088 or 12208322.

    Vehicles that used OS12202088 in the 2001 model year:

    - Camaro & Firebird (5.7L V8)
    - Corvette (often upgraded to OS12593358)
    - Holden (many models - some were upgraded to OS12225074)
    - S10 Pickup & Blazer (4.3L V6)
    - Astro & Safari minivan (4.3L V6)
    - Full-size truck, SUV, and van (including 8.1L engines)

    OS12208322 was an upgrade of OS12202088, mainly for light duty trucks. Vehicles that used OS12208322 in the 2001 model year:

    - S10 Pickup & Blazer (4.3L V6)
    - Astro & Safari minivan (4.3L V6)
    - Full-size truck, SUV, and van (including 8.1L engines)

    As you can see from the above lists, you could run just about any early LS type engine (using a 3x, 4x, or 24x Crankshaft Position Sensor), and the accompanying transmission, using either of these two Operating Systems.

    The ZIP file attached contains two XDF files, one DLL file, and one PDF document. Please read the PDF document before attempting to use the other files with TunerPro.


    *** discovered intermittent display issues when attempting to use these larger XDFs with older versions of TunerPro - sometimes a table will open, but will be blank ***

    *** update to TunerPro Build 5.00.8944.00 (released December 2016) ***

    Also, all parameters in the XDFs have been referenced to EFILive's cataloguing system (e.g.B4001 - Fuel Injector Flow Rate). When I started this project HP Tuner's had not adopted such a system, but they now have. In future, I would probably referenced these to the HP Tuner's parameter numbers, as it is likely the more popular software.

    TunerPro has a search feature to find available parameters in the XDF. Go to the "Tools" menu, select "Parameter Finder", then enter the EFILive parameter reference (B4001 for example) in the "Word(s)" window.

    This may make initially navigating the XDFs a little easier.

    Nice work!
    Can you add this to .xdf?

    I just wish the free flash utility had not disappeared. It is ridiculous how much it costs to tune ones of these 15 year old pcm's.
    There was at least two different people I heard about making one, and neither one has come out. I can not help to think the big tuning companies caught wind of them and bought them out, as they would have a lot to lose if they did.

    93 Jeep YJ Wrangler, 4.0L, 5 speed, 8.8 rear, homebrew hub conversion and big brakes, hydroboost, 2.5in OME lift, 31x10.50's---the daily driver

    You might also enable VIN change?
    Here in CA it is mandatory that the VIN matches for smog testing.
    There are probably other states that have a similar requirement.

    It can be changed via hex editing though, and doesn't break anything.
    Seems that portion of code is not included in checksum.

    I can't speak specifically for the individuals who worked on a free flash.
    I think in Dimented's situation he accomplished his goals and life got in the way of continuing?
    He was very helpful when I emailed him during my $OD MAF install.
    Pretty sure $ didn't really have anything to do with his LSFlash project?

    Fixed.

    I didn't recall that I had initially locked down the VIN (preventing it being changed). That's what happens when you try to complete something that you started years prior.

    The VIN should normally be at the primary location. Sometimes it may be at the alternate location.

    Just make certain not to make any changes, if the original displayed parameter is not in proper VIN form. Do NOT change the leading cell designated as "NULL".

    Changing the non-VIN area would likely result in a bricked PCM.

    XDF files are for use with TunerPro software. TunerPro is basically freeware - a small donation is all it costs. To log data using TunerPro requires a corresponding ADX file.

    TunerPro will not flash (read / write) an LS1 style PCM. It is editing software. People will use various means to flash the PCM.

    XDF files for the LS1 PCM (0411) have been around for a number of years, thanks mainly to Dimented24x7.

    The original XDF files for this PCM were actually a series of smaller XDF files (you would load an XDF file to adjust the Fuel System parameters, then you would have to load a different XDF file to adjust the Transmission parameters).

    I created one large, all encompassing XDF file, then did my best to make it look a little more like a commercial tuning software. I also incorporated all segment Checksum calculations.

    I'm familiar with Tuner Pro, what I'm asking is after editing in TP, what are people using to flash/read with? Are there adx files for the 0411 and TP?

    Below is a link to TunerPro ADX files for the LS1 PCM, and the original XDF file series.

    LRT, thanks for sharing the XDF you've streamlined. Looks great! Question: I've saved a copy of the "512Kb PCM OS Checksum Plugin.dll" in the *\Documents\TunerPro Files\Plugins folder, but it's not loading into TunerPro's "About Plug-ins" window after restart? Is there an additional step I need to take to integrate this plug-in to update the OS checksum? And if you (anyone?) don't mind: how can I verify the checksums are good after my changes? I saved my *bin, then opened it with EFILive, and EFILive shows a green check mark for each segment? And I'm curious - there seem to be lots of very advanced calibrations available for editing, but (to me) some other simpler calibrations aren't available? Do you (or anyone else) know why? Are some calibrations much harder to find than others? For examples: coil dwell settings (like 12650 in HPT) and end of injection timing (like 3120 in HPT)?

    Anyone have a 5.7 4l80e Express van .bin for this 0411 XDF?

    If EFILive shows the checksum(s) are okay then it's working. If the checksum(s) were bad EFILive would notify you after loading the .bin and ask if you wanted to correct them.
