So I attempted again to flash the PCM with IDS and openport as I have a work around to revive the unit.
Has anyone successfully got it to work and using the shim32.dll


You need to make sure your moving the correct DLL's for IDS to succesfully pick up another cable.

Newer versions of IDS blacklist certain serial numbers (LIke clone VCM or MDI's). But after moving all required DLLs, IDS will recognise the cable and connect.

When a device is blacklisted, it will still display and connect to the scantool, but it wont actually communicate with the car. You can tell the difference since the J tool will actually 'click' as it engages relays to begin communicating with the vehicle on CANBus. Well.. this is based on if using a GM MDI, but on newer versions which have the serial blacklisted, it doesnt engage the relays to communicate with the car and thus simply says 'no communication with vehicle'.

Do note that the non-genuine VX nanos will have serious problems, and are not all made equally. Good nanos work fine. I develop with them and use them to flash vehicles with my own custom software all the time.

I think I tested a few other apps with it but never ids itself.

I had a few operations fail with the open port (parameter reset) so it could be an ids/openport issue rather than the dll

Thanks Tazzi, I replaced the DLL as per location suggested by Rolls. Ran IDS , popup menu appears to select which J cable and then ids detects the car. I am able to perform all functions with ids expect PCM flashing, it gets halfway and fails with suggested error code from prior post.

I would be fair to say it's somewhat working and detects the car

Yeah thats definitely working.

If I had to guess.. IDS must use some sort of J-command which isn't supported by your device. I think thats why alot of forums indicate alot of the non-genuine tools, or other branded tools fail during reflash with IDS.

Would have thought an MDI would be fine... its so far the powerhouse of all J tools Iv come acorss :thumbup:
