Downgrade to X-Prog v5.5.1 and use a dump from the Internet (v5.5.1 can't read D-flash) or buy a new Xprog v5.6 or newer. It's best to buy genuine off coarse. Genuine UPA-USB works flawlessly as well if you think X-Prog is too expensive.
Same Promblem, how to downgrade to 5.51 ? Thanks

I have a strange problem with one frm3. Someone sent it back because he had errors on the door lock. When i ve got the frm back and test it, the module it was actually dead. I tried to read the d flash but gave error that the chip is secured. I erased the chip and wrote only EEE as i had a backup of it. Everything went fine and the EEE was written correctly but the FRM is still dead, no communication to CAN!

Does anyone have any ideas?

You need a way to program the AVR in-system, for example using a AVR ASP. These programmers are available for a few bucks. Another Xprog will work as well.

Search for "xprog isp" on Google and you will find a tutorial.

Find a file called x-prog551.rar for the correct firmware.

Hiii;

Finally (i think) managed to restore FRM3.

here is my story and maybe help if i can :

Bought a Xprog clone (bad one) and read Dflash. convert to EEE but always corrupted. Vin was showing WMWXXMyy0102Y7yy93 for example. I didn't notices this immediatly so i've flashed with this EEE. Too late to read DFLASH again as it was now only 0x0.


So, i bought New Xprog clone, was not working for an hour then suddenly it started working and it always works now (chinese clones pleasures)

I didn't have Dflash, it was 0x0 as i flushed it with the first Xprog.. So I found a EEE file online for my FRM part number.

BUT, writting file i always had many verrify errors.
>> I disabled verrify check and it worked.

At the end, i Have :
DFLASH : 0x0 which i think it the expected value
EEPROM : made a new read and compared it with the donwloaded file : They are exactly the same.

If you see anything i made wrong do not hesitate, i didn't test the FRM for the moment.
