How to reflash Kess V2 firmware 5.017

05.04.2018

Anyone know how to Update Kess v2 4.036 to 5.017? i found some tips here https://blog.obdexpress.co.uk/2018/01/26/how-to-update-kess-v2-4-036-to-5-017/

only way would be to replace nxp or unlock nxp (if possible) and reflash with 5.017 firmware if you have it
and new sdcard with 5.017 image on it

And here is what i did..

I rebuilt and generated a SD card image for the RED Kess V2 5.017.

This image can fit in small SD cards.

This image is generated specially for the RED Kess CID number.

So you must write it in the original SD card with good CID number.

(Some Green Kess have same CID)

It's preferable to replace the contents of the entire SD card with 0s before writing the image.

(ImageUSB includes functionality to Zero a USB Flash Drive).

WARNING: it's just a test, but work for some.

Make a backup of your SD card before, even if it is corrupted. Sometimes it can help.

I can generate for other CID.

Try and report.

Again, I tested myself only, not sure if it works for you all

You guys try on your own risk.

I did find some failed. If so, you can have a try this

It's working. Some brothers in forums with failure choose this kess finally.

I think it can be used with relief.
