Tried it a few times with an array of sticks all formatted to FAT32, nothing happens

Could it be that the file I downloaded from this thread is corrupt?
copie._scr.sh - opened it in notepad and there were lots
of Chinese fonts

I opened mine in a notepad also and you're right is it chinese text. i'm baffled as to why its not pulling your 1b file. hopefully somebody on the forum will be able to shed some insight. but you have the right file.

As per the very first post in this thread, the script only works for CIC systems.

Your F30 VIN indicates you do not have CIC but instead have Business.

The script will not work for you.

Need help

Hey guys, this is my first post. I just bought a 2011 BMW 328i xDrive and the Nav hasn't been updated since 2011. I've downloaded the maps but cannot seem to get the steps to work in generating the FSC Code. I've done the following:

1) Downloaded the FSC Code generator to 3 empty USB sticks formatted in FAT32
2) Extracted the files.
3) Plugged the USB Sticks into the BMW with the ignition on
4) Left the USB sticks in there for 30 secs or more
5) Plugged the USB sticks back into my Windows computer but I get no 1b Hex file to then generate a code.

Please help?

Did you download the "FSC Code generator" or the '1b.zip' file?

You need to download the 1b.zip file in the 1st post, unzip it and copy the copie_scr.sh file to the root of an empty USB stick.

I just downloaded "FSC Code Generator" and didn't download and unpack the 1b.zip file in the first post. I will try that.

Should work.

Make sure you UNPACK the file you download from here onto a FAT32 formatted USB key/drive.

The script file is the only thing that needs to be on the root directory of the USB drive.

Turn on the car & radio, insert the key and wait five or six minutes.

Then shut off the car and move the key to your computer.

Check to see if a new file appears on it.
