[QUOTE=AlpsRider;25807921]I've just read in other threads that it's not necessary to open up the DME anymore as was the case in the past. I have no first hand info.[/QUO

You're probably talking about via OBD port which is what's no capable with the current DME software. Please don't spread misinformation lol

No I'm talking about not breaking open the box just like I wrote. I know how OBD works. Maybe it's not right, but I swear I read that it can be done with the DME contacts. When I get back home I'll have a look.

This is a quote from BM3 support, just to clear up misinformation.

"Thank you for reaching out to us, as well for your interest in bootmod3.

Once you remove the DME, the bench unlock is preformed by connecting the pins to the unlock tool. There is no need to open the DME. It will remain sealed."

Yup that's the way you bench flash. Nothing new here you still have to pull out your DME
