Kess v2 & Galletto v54 Which is Better for BMW M5 E60 EDC17 ?

I have been remapping a 2006 BMW M5 E60.

I have the MPPS, but it’s not suitable for this so decide to buy a better tool , not sure if I should go for a Galletto v54 or the Kess V2

Any advice would be great, ideally I would like to get the one that covers most cars via OBD.

Advice from users:

1.Kess V2 is better solution.

2.EDC17 safer to do on the frame, and some only.

KESS and GALLETTO it is a good.

If you buy a fake you never know what to do, and if at all something impute.

3.The kess is more better than fgtech mpps etc

4.Kess is better tool for no w.

5.On MED17 with KESS cant do full read. File is somehow encrypted. With Galletto is fine.

6.My KESS is reworked and work great as original. I just say if I do full read (backup) the file is encrypted.

 

Galletto works well for boot mode tricore

1.For me both tools are doing a good JOB Kess is china clone but i have an original one as well. just need to update is to Master because at the moment is SLAVE.

2.FG Galleto V54 is Euro Clone and until now it never ever let me down . Anywaywhat i figure it out is that the tools are good and work good but the laptop configuration is quite important.

3.I use panasonic toughbook CF 19 and CF 52. Never had a single problem with both of them .

4.Buy a good galletto clone EU and no problems, very stable.

5.The FG have no cs correction in edc17 , kess have .

6.Galletto works well with edc17,

Chinese kess no!

Galletto is fine

Galletto working fine

GALLETTO works well in boot mode tricode

7.I use both, Kess v2 clone + Galletto v54 clone. But i prefer v 54 only because user fredliness and good working stability, no chance to suspend writing file or something else. Kess little bit fussy, and to much moronresistant and used only if V54 will not handle it but in plus a lot better for gasoline engines. V54 in 80% still needs rework after buying but after that works perfect

8.Buy both they are cheap enough get them reworked and then you have two good tools

9.Earlier Galetto didnt support MSS65 K-line ( E6x V10 Mpower ) . It can only read by CAN which is only LCI E6x . Not sure about kess and the latest Galletto version . Someone can double check please . Some chinese says kess is not working good with K-line .

10.I think its better to have boot clone tools they works on many units, about this ecu i think fg is the Best

11.Both of them have its pros and cons, its up to you to make decision.

12.I like like KessV2 is Safe,to work with them.

13.EU kess only sold by resellers of chinese clones..do the maths

buy both kess v2 and galletto v54 chinese clone tools, have a play, decide which you like best software wise

have it reworked, job done

galletto is compatible with more cars IMO kess is more user friendly

14.Galletto working ok w/ sirius 32

Ktag 7.020 Update- Change CID SD Card

This is the Ktag 7.020 firmware master clone and SD card method.

Info :For correct operation device it is necessary to change CID SDcard on 035344535330344780399b1368010300.

This procedure is supported by not each SD card.

Programs for change of CID and the description of process easy to find in the Internet.I used mmc32 and evoplus_cid from github. This programs for linux. I haven’t found soft working in Windows.

It is difficult to find SDcard which supports change CID.SDcards with built-in chipset of production Samsung meet such requirements….or buy on Alibaba, using search “CUSTOM CID”.

Read and Write BMW Bosch DME MEVD172G with KTAG KTM100

Purpose:

DIY – DME/ECU Read Write and Tuning  2016MY F82 M using KTAG KTM100 master clone ecu tuning tool.

Parts arrived this morning. Below are pictures of what was included in the box.
–KTAG KTM100 Clone (US$349)
-12v/1A AC Adapter
-USB2.0 A-to-B Cable
-Cables to wire up to the DME

27-1 27-2

Software setup:
The instructions provided recommend the use of WinXP/Win7, disabling all network connections and malware detection programs. I was in a rush to stage the software and connect the flashing tool to ensure all was OK so I tested the following setup on a Win10Pro x64 machine. I also made the changes below before starting:
-Disable Driver Signature Enforcement – REQUIRED or Dimsport driver will not install and device will show as ‘Unknown’ under Device Manager
-Disable AV/Malware Software – I use Webroot/Defender and shut them off
-Disable LAN/WLAN adapters

After making the changes above to my PC I powered up the adapter and plugged in the USB cable. Windows warned me of the unsigned driver and continued the install.

Bringing up Car Diagnostic Tool KTM100 I see all is recognized correctly. You can also see below that the DME is supported and a plugin is available to communicate with that DME and calculate the correct checksum. Ready to start!

On Sunday I was able to get the car on the dyno and grab some factory numbers.

Phase 1 – Reading the DME:

Here she is. Bosch MEVD172G DME.

Below are a few pictures of the outside of the unit. I cleaned up a bit of sand around the unit to make sure nothing gets in while I attempt to open it up.

27-3 27-527-6

After about 30 minutes with a small blade going around the edges of the unit I was able to open the casing up. Luckily the components are not close to the edge of the case so as you’re going around it with a blade you don’t have to worry too much. But as always be careful not to jam the blade too deep; you may accidentally damage some of the surface mounted components.

27-7 27-8

Wired up the unit to the ECU Programming Tool KTM100 clone using the PDF attachment I posted earlier. Reading procedure is as follows:

1. Connect wires from the provided harnesses to the DME pins as shown in the Bosch PDF including BOOT pin.
2. Power ON KTM100 and connect to USB on PC
3. Launch KTM100 Application
4. Connect the harness side of the cables to the KTM100
5. Click ‘ID’ in KTM100 Application to verify DME communication.
6. Done. Now you can carry out the function you need (read/write/etc)

Phase 2 – Tuning:

You have two options:

1. Acquire and LEARN tuning software like WinOLS, ECM TITANIUM or similar, and spend time and resources on custom dyno tuning the car.

2. Take your dumped files and send them off to a tuner for tuning service. Most US tuners will flat out turn your business away. I wont call them out here but I would encourage you to contact them and listen to their response first hand.

I installed the DME back into the car yesterday afternoon. It was pretty nerve wrecking to sit in the car and push the ‘Start’ button. I was very confident I followed all the right steps but there’s always that sense of uncertainty in the back of your mind. What if i damaged something? At that moment I didn’t care if the remaps actually yielded any results; I was just hoping the car would crank back up. I held my breath, pushed ‘Start’ and the car sprung back to life. It was such a sense of accomplishment.
