Ford MG1 .bin Flashing Software Recommendation

Postby blueovaltech » Thu Mar 17, 2022 10:50 pm

Hello to all, and thank you to the admins for the approval. Been searching a bit here, and really happy to be part of the group here now!

I'm a novice, and currently working on correcting the OSID of this Ford MG1 (Identifies as MG1CS018 in WinOLS, TC-298 B in HPTuners), vehicle is a 2020 Ford Explorer/3.0L Gas.

I have a .bin file that I need to load onto the ECU to correct the OSID, but I'm currently stuck looking for an appropriate program to load the .bin file. I have found a few that I believe will work, some more professional and expensive than others, but wanted to see if anyone here had some experience/recommendations as well.

BitBox with the appropriate Ford module states it can do MG1 via CAN/OBD port, as does PCM Flash. I have a Ford VCM2 as a pass-through device.

Any suggestions or tips?

I think your best bet might be Kess/Ktag if it supports which I'm pretty sure it would.

Thank you!

I took a look at the supported vehicles list, and would agree it does appear to support the processor I have. Although the vehicle is not listed, it does support vehicles that use the same processor.

So I'm on Ksuite 2.53 and it looks like this processor isn't supported.

Might have to move over to PCM Flash/BitBox/MMC Flasher....

Yeah I think PCMflash have a pretty good support for most Ford controllers, another that may be cheaper & easier(you don't have to purchase security dongle) is TGflash

Thank you.

Do you think that would be compatible with Ford? It does not show as listed on there, just BMW.

Still on the hunt!
