    I had to remove the link for Tundra free update to vF Tuner because people were purchasing it (for $0) who weren't even customers at all, and demanding we give it to them for free.

    We have the remaining ECUs about to go into this next release and we are all set for 2nd gen testing.

    We also have a developer working with us right now that is creating a seam-less patching tool that will make patching, features, future patches so much easier and quicker (as opposed to how I originally did it, writing out machine code by hand).

    Does this mean Tune Packs will be available for 2021 ECUs at that time or just that the base file will become read/write ready for people to tune themselves? I'll cross-post to the VFT forum as well in case you don't see it here.

    I wouldn't try to do anything until Mat has everything updated, released and given the go ahead. Then you can update to the latest software version.

    if it's a key not recognized error that's an easy fix.






    ECU support list on next update:
    Some of these are update versions for multiple *older* ecus

    Master Key (Email) not recognized!

    I sent it to zen desk a few days ago.

    thanks!

    So does this mean that if my ECU is not on this list, it still might be supported? If so how do we know. Maybe I didn't understand "some of these are update versions for multiple older ecus" I already have a tune and very happy with it. My ECU ID: 0CJ20

    I have the Master key, but not VF Tuner software, how/when do I get VF Tuner software, or are we waiting for a new version and all directions to get that will be posted up then? Thanks!

    Ok. I see my ECU ID 0CD33. Hopefully we can troubleshoot GL feature. I already have vF Tuner set up and ready to go.

    There is an update to 0CJ21

    But if you like your tune and don't want to mess with it I don't recommend doing / touching it at all

    Hello everyone, I’m new here but been reading a lot about ov tune, how can I buy tuner and tune itself I guess, I went to website and didn’t find anything. I have 14 tundra crew max trd off-road 4x4 with 2.5 inch lift and 315/70/17 bf ko2 on rock warrior rims with 1.25 inch spacers. Truck feels very underpowered and as responsive as it used to be. I really hope tune will help. Please advise. Thanks

    Some parts of the site is down due to the major update that OV tune is doing. Once they are done updating, the site will be up and running.

    I haven’t paid attention to this lately, but does the new software of OV work on the latest versions of windows? I have an older computer that I haven’t updated for using ov’s system. But the computer has a lot of processing power and memory, so I was thinking about buying a newer windows update for it. I think it’s windows 8 currently.

    I wonder if there are any plans for this software on a Mac in the future. @OVTune

    Anyone with some computer knowledge have recommendations?

    So if I update to the newest windows on my computer, what do you recommend?

    Is it that my computers hardware won’t work well or that I need different cables?

    or should I scrap the whole idea and just buy a newer computer? I had thought about buying a chrome book, but I’m so behind on understanding a lot of it, that I didn’t feel confident in buying one?

    If you think I should do that, could you give a recommendation on a laptop, or at least the minimum specs (like usb, memory, etc) to help me decide?

    There has to be at least one other guy out there besides me that is late on understanding all of this...:rolleyes:

    Thanks!

    About the only honest advice that I could give would be to not buy a Chromebook as the software won't run on it. It's a Windows only software.

    Additional:
    I found this over on TW:
    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads...lopment-thread.495735/page-2277#post-20903584

    There are a couple others if you scroll. Some are indicated as unavailable, likely due to COVID/production issues.

    I'm getting this during the vFtuner installation, any suggestions? I have turned off all anti-virus programs (ie, malwarebytes, windows defender).

    Why not just wait for the updated software that's on the horizon?

    Got an email from Mat with Master Key along with instructions for vftuner. That seemd to be the go-ahead. But, perhaps not.

    He has some users testing the software, it may be less of a headache for you to backburner it for a tad. With that said, something on your computer is still examining the version you're trying to install, you may've missed turning something off.
