MHD Flash - WHAT CABLE COMBINATION WITH HARDWARE WORKS THREAD!

Sorry for threadjacking the general MHD discussion.

I am setting up a list of what works here and what doesn't so as to inform others as to possible setups and odds for whomever would like to go the route of the MHD flash (backend or otherwise)

1. Dragontablet
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o00_s00

2. Kcrius K+DCAN cable
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o01_s00

3. OTG cable
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o02_s00

4. ebay K+DCAN cable
http://www.ebay.com/itm/INPA-Ediabas...-/351080107250

5. LGG3 for AT&T


No combination of this setup worked.

I have also just purchased the onestopelectronics cable. Should that fail to work with the parts I have in Post #1 of this thread then I will try other OTG cables.

Thanks for posting the link, do you by chance (just in case) know which OTG cable you used with it?

It was some generic one at Best Buy. Not sure on the brand.

I use this OTG cable: http://www.amazon.co.uk/GENUINE-NOKI.../dp/B004APRKLS

It's USB A so the bit that plugs into the phone is squared. I filed it down carefully and it fits the phone perfectly.
I do have a few other cheap OTG cables from ebay that also work but this one has great build quality and the connections at each end are very snug so there's no chance of dislodging the cable accidentally.

I did notice both those OBD cables you linked in the OP state that they only work on cars up until 2008. I know they state that the support both DCAN and KCAN but the cables that people claim to have success with all say they support cars from 2008 onwards.

Good catch, well the cutoff for MSD80 to MSD81 was from 07 to 08 sometime iirc. The cables do say that they should work with 08+ as DCAN, so I am not sure. Do you have a link to one that is specifically 08+, I bought the linked cable from another poster who claimed it worked (kcrius K+DCAN)

And this OTG cable: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00..._detailpages00

With my Galaxy S5 MHD works great. First flash took about 15 minutes.

Both worked great on the S3 I had laying around. Flash took 38min as expected since I'm 2008 DCAN.

This one is what I would be buying if I needed a new cable: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/271796230565

Then there's this one which I'm tempted to just buy and see if it works: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261742758117
Looks like every other cheap cable out there but does say it works on cars until 2012. Probably best to get the first item if you want to avoid getting another dud cable.

The first item is from the same company I got my current cable from and it works perfectly. The one I linked to isn't the same design but seems to be the replacement.

Thanks for the useful info. If the onestopelectronics one is a bust I'll try the first ebay one next!
