Ktag 7.020 review deleted DPF, EGR, DTC successfully

Finally received my Ktag package. It’s firmware KTAG Master version. and tested on three cars today today.

See my Ktag fw 7.020: looks good

30-1

30-2 30-3

Now, i’ll chip in some words of my experience.

Three ECUs i’ve tested:

ISUZU ECU Transtron 4JJ1

Mazda Denso ECU RF8P

Hino 700 Denso Diesel ECU

Attached pictures here. Here you go…

Transtron 4JJ1 SH7058 ISUZU (P430):

30-11

Ktag v7.020 DPF & EGR and DTC deleted: success

In summary, i’m satisfied! This ktag works good for me, without issues.

Later, i’ll test on more (Mercedes S Class W221 ME9.7 ECU, Vw passage 1.6 TDI pcr2.1, etc.)

Best ECU programmers clone advice Kess, ktag, Fgtech, MPPS

Most comprehensive advice on what ECU programmers clone are verified working fine and good investment, tools advice including Kess v2 master fw v5.017/4.036, Ktag master V4.036/ V4.024 truck version, Fgtech Galletto V54, MPPS. Starts from the basic info comparison, advice which are really good according to users’ real test, ends with these ECU tools reviews.

Here we go one by one.

1.Basic info comparison table of best clone Kess v2 master, Ktag master and Fgtech Galletto V54.

ecu tool-1

2.Being a professional ECU tunner, which one to have?

1). Kess (even china good clone)…more stable than Mpps on can-line and good job on recovery…mpps good job on k-line (sometimes and can-line)…fgtech (i hate this tool)-but sometimes save your as…and best ktag-trasdata-no obd but safe boot mode,pinout direct conection and bdm…i talk about low price tools.

2). KESS V2 is a ECU programming tool that is perfect for OBD use, while KTag is perfect for Jtag, BDM and all the Boot application (tricore and ST10).

With KESS V2 you programming directly through the OBD port of the vehicle, while with Ktag you need to take apart the ECU and open it, after you can make the read/write operation.

Many ECU has the advantage that can be read and write from OBD port (so KESS V2 is perfect), but there are lot ECU that need to disassemble from the car and open and this is the case for all the ECU that need to be programmed with Jtag, BDM and Boot protocols, so KTAG is needed.

3). Fgtech Galletto V54 ECU programming tool is perfect for both OBD use and BDM use. Fgtech Galletto is the no tokens limitation while KESS V2 and Ktag will use tokens.

To sum up, being a professional ECU tunner, you need all the above-mentioned tools: Kess v2 master, MPPS, Ktag master, Fgtech Galletto V54.

FYI, master Version VS slave version:

if you have master version you can work directly on the program you have write on the vehicle (tunning, egr off, ….) and rewrite after directly.

if you are a slave customer (who depend of a master (who do modificated), you read the programme (scripted by genius), you send it to the master, he do what you want (money paid) and he re-sent to you to write in the ecu machine.

it is expensive for the slave user who depend of a master.

3.What ECU programmers are best which are verified working fine and good investment.

lot of denso ok ,tested today on 2016 navarra 2.5L 144hp (7059) all fine..via OBD of course (check ktag for jtag,tricore and others… )

(The EDC17 made by OBD are Audi, bmw and renault without Tp)

Kess accept virtual read i test on AUDI A5 2.0 TDI 143hp 2013 EDC17CP46. it”s ok by obd

ksuite Sw reset token when open, same as all kess 5.017 or new ktag 7.020/26 Fw.

Berlingo 9HX: only readID from engineand works ok

2) Ktag KTM100 firmware 7.003 reviews

K-tag KTM100 firmware 7.003 reviews… here you go.

Interface Tested.It works great.
Made a 116d F20 successfully. Good job !

KTM100 is just 6.070 firmware transferred to trasdata which is equivalent to 7.003 on KTM100

Ktm 100 100% Working on Bmw F31 335Xdrive, i have ever tried it. Working!!.

tricore boot mode ktm100 test read ok
test ecu med17.1.1 audi a8 v8 2012y
writing : no
ecu clon no

ktm100 can make edc17c64. where to find fake firmware v7.003 to upgrade v6.070, then there is posible to make edc17c64 on eu clones.

KTAG V7.020 and dimsport ktm100 is the same hardware with separate software.

There is no Update from version 6.070 to 7.003, because Board is different, Board is from Dim Sport, and Software too.

read and write without problem, i cannot believe there, but there is true.

My friend have Ktag v7.003 clone and he made edc17c64 without problem.

I try it with edc17c64; reading ok,writing ok

3). Fgtech Galletto V54 reviews

Fgtech Galletto china clone is no gold immersions but PCB and soldering quality is really very good, Fgtech galletto china clone have the same component of EU clone.
Also I have 2 galletto. One with yellow relays and second one with black. Both of them works very good.

I test FGtech galletto V54 on Audi 2009, Tiguan 2009, Passat 2009 and Golf 6 2009. It supports not all ecus edc17, Sure edc17cp04 and edc17cp14 year 2009 can read-write in obd. But edc17cp20, edc17cp44,etc, etc same year, have tricore protected active, and if you write in obd, ecu bloqued. I think TProt on VAG are present from 05/2009 but is very random this option is most present on engine with low power and is not compeer to years or ecu type.The best way to know if tp is active is always bootmode and read tag on file.

ECU Programming Tool KTAG & KESS V2 Explanation

As a professional mechanic, I have done a lot of research on ECU programmer, I was impressed on two products KTAG and KESS V2 from Obd2tool.com. Here I will Share my understanding of them.

0
KTAG ECU Programming Tool

KTAG V7.020 introduces another brand new novelty to Alientech world: J-Tag communication for Asian vehicles.

The main difference between KTAG is the hardware version, the software can be arbitrarily matched, but my advice is using lower version of the software which may support more models than higher version.

Why? I think the hardware cannot keep up with a higher version of the software and will lead to a lot of gray buttons mean some function cannot be used.

Well, some friends asked me that will KTAG easily burn the ECU out? The answer is never. FGTECH may get ECU damage if the power supply is reversed, but KTAG will never damage ECU. But you should notice that disconnect Internet while using KTAG, otherwise It Will Get Damaged. As for the operate system, it is better to Use Win XP3.

KTM100

KTM100 clone features the same as KTAG

You should notice Never use the original software, it may damage the device. With their software, even is safe if connect to the network. I download the original software to use with and get My KTM100 damaged, its buttons are all gray, nothing can be used, finally back to factory for repair cost me much money.

Although it is much more expensive than ktag, but KTM100 has no-replaced highlights:

1.KTM100 can read encrypted ECU, for example: someone wants to read BOSCH MEV1746BMW (P171) this is encrypted ECU, then he can use the KTM100 to read.
2.Can read BMW N55 N20, BENZ and other encrypted computers
3.KTM100 and KTAG can be used to do CHECKSUM, KESS V2 cannot. If you want to do power upgrade, read data using KTAG or KTM100, you need to change the data, and then do KTAG or KTM100 checksum, and write the ECU computer. If CHECKSUM error, usually the user’s data problems. KTAG and KTM100 can be used to verify those errors.

20-1
KESS V2 V5.017

The main difference between KESS V2 is also the hardware version. Some use the old hardware version V3.099, they just come from different manufacturers, so the price is different. And some use the new hardware version, V4.036.

The big KESS family has a version supports for more trucks, and we call it truck version, that is really a big highlight.

I am here simply to talk with you about the attention points of these three products. I have bought a ktag and a ECU Chip Tuning kess v2 for personal use, someone wants the different version can get them here:

Starting:

Though ECU Scanner KESS V2 (FW 4.036) K-suite software has released to the newer V2.12/V2.13, I prefer using Ksuite V2.08 (cause I’ve seen several KESS V2 owners worked perfect on fw 4.036 and 2.08).

I have already loaded V2.08 on the laptop and directly open the Ksuite on desktop.

Press on car icon button

Ktag KTM100 V7.003 work as Original Trasdata

Is it possible to read edc17c64 with ktm100? Here is the test report of an Ktag expert.

And this is the post with the most likes:
“I made for my friend remap of skoda octavia 3 rs tdi. he bought ECU Scanners Ktag ktm100, the vendor send me dump, i made remap without doi decalibration and lambda for 1100 after 1000mg of air. car is running and starting without problem. i start writing here to know how upgrade to fake firmware v7.003. I think in clone Trasdata is allowed protocols menu with edc17c64 and edc17c66 if firmware = 7.003. with trasdata menu to confirmation then there is true and china ktm100 can do edc17c64 !!!”

Ordered KTM100 firmware v7.003 from obd36.com and received it last weekend.
ktm100 china is in fact trasdata i think…
Also it’s kind of the same as Ktag v6.070.
But this Ktag does not support BMW F chassis petrol and Mercedes-Benz W222
Only possible after fw 7.020 and ksuite 2.22 frm obd2tool.com

ktm100 can do edc17c64 gpt!!! (And no possible 2l tdi 184 edc17 c64 wi)
this is my photo of edc17c64 with china no reworked ktm100 done.

All seems to work AS ORIGINAL. Toyota Denso included also! And Yes, same as others say, KTAG master KTM100 V2.23 Firmware V7.020 is FAKE Trasdata. 100% same tool, same software, same car list, same protocols, just different name. . ktag will not work with ktm100… only if you will apply one patch for this and change .ept…and will be trasdata.
