Smile Tcu firmware upload

Dear all,
I kindly ask you if, in case of mechatronic replacement, with virgin unit, it is possible to upload the firmware from the old tcu and download in the new one?

My car is 320d e90 163cv model, manufactured 05/2005 year, equipped with ZF6HP19 trasmission (may be ZF6HP21 I am not sure).

I have software Inpa, Dis, Ncs, winkpf, etc. with cable interface k+dcan.

Another question, can I upgrade tcu firmware of the above car ?

Thank you for your information

Why yo want to do it? Just use WINKFP and flash your virgin module.

Its not possible to download all firmware, anyway why would you like to do it?

Yes, whole car can be updated, but ICOM is necessary to do it.

Hi, Cryptomit, thank you for your prompt reply. I asked about the mode to flash firmware in TCU unit in case I will need to change mechatronic unit in the future. I am able to do every work of maintenance and repair in my car so I would like to know also the mode to reflash firmware myself.
If I change the automatic trasmission with one used, what I need to do about software to put in run the raplaced part ( autoadptation reset parmeter a part, I know this operation) ?

Thank you for your cooperation

As fas as I know, TCU as CIC should not be flashed with a D-Can cable. ICOM Interface ist required for it.

He meant TCU as Transmission Control Unit, not Telematic Control Unit.

If you have using gearbox then it should work immediately without coding, but not sure.
I'm not sure if this transmission can have VIN change using WINKFP. I will check this, I know that this is not possible for cars with Joystick (automatic).

Hi Cryptomit, many thanks for your help.
I confirm that for TCU I am speaking about transmission control unit in my car is automatic type ZF6HP19 (may be HP21 not sure) and it is M shift type mean that i have steptronic control with P, R, N, D, DS, +, -, positions, no pads if you need I can sen photo or technical manual.
About my tcu, I can upgrade the software with winkfp ? If yes where I can find the correct file.
Many thanks
