Can anyone explain this announcement from MG Flasher to me?

The ECU still has to be sent to femto but now he doesn't have to copy the ECU to a new one? I guess its progress...

How about using jb4 until someone comes up with a tune solution? As far as I know jb4 works with 2021+ cars.

Idk. I've seen conflicting numbers about JB4 and it's nothing like an actual OTS tune lol. Sure it'll be faster but at least with an ots tune I'd be able to try and sneak a pop or two out of the car

As far as I understand, this still requires you to mail your DME to femto for them to unlock it first. A tune can then be flashed using this tool (or perhaps others).

Can you pay some money, download some software, and flash the tune without having to remove your DME and mailing it? Doesn't look like it, but other smarter folks can tell me if I'm wrong.

So they won't release an odb unlocker which it can be done. I guess we just have to wait or maybe start a petition page to get it released. It's not like we are getting it for free we will be paying for it.

Yeah I talked to them. You have to send them your 06.2020+ ecu to do the bench unlock and then you can flash it.
