SF3 Firmware Update Error
 
Not sure if this is the appropriate area for this, but I'm desperate. I just attempted to update my firmware (to load my new bama tunes) on my SF3 tuner and it bricked. Anytime I connect it, it produces this message:

System Start Up
Please Wait...
Filesystem ERROR
Needs to be reloaded

3
ONFI x 4-bit

Of course the program advised me to return my vehicle to stock tune before updating the firmware... so right now I can't run my vehicle... and I have work in 6 hours. SCT isn't available during the weekend.

I believe I can load a previous version of the firmware, but I need to get it from someone (since their website only lets you update firmware with this new software). Does anyone have a .LWU file I can use?

IIRC this happened to me too...
the recommendation from SCT was to unplug the handheld and reboot the PC, then reconnect and restart the firmware upgrade.

The cause: Windows USB drivers for the handheld didn't load correctly or didn't finish loading, thus causing a data transfer issue

Savage Penguin,

Sorry you're having issues with the tuner! Were you able to get a hold of SCT this morning? They have a Tech support that will be able to get this taken care of.

Please keep me posted with your progress with SCT! I want to make sure you're taken care of!

Shane
