I would say waste of time, you've RTM, seen the code, i've RTM, seen the code, as others have ... Though I have been surprised many times in my life.

I don't have a recovery method, I shake to much to de-solder, if I f'up my units I'm twiddling my thumbs till may or so when my car and I can leave our cave to go get another.

[edit]
To be clear, not worried about bricking with that OS, but I do believe it'll never be happy.
Reading is the same, so it should very well accept a kernel, thus re-flash ...

So you have flashed OsID 12579405 on one of the following Hardware ID's, No issues, meaning the Os was happy??
12583659
12589161
12589162

I will certainly test it. I have a bench full of these PCM's here.

Admittely the '9405 OS isn't a popular one being the first year for the P59 architecture so I do not use that one often. 99% of the ones I use are the 2004 '603 OS for the 2003-2005 stuff and the '811 OS for the 2006-2007 stuff. Mainly due to the compatibility with the TAC module IF it is electronic throttle equipped.

I'll test and report back.

Worst case it bricks a PCM of which "may" be able to be recovered by resetting the chip.

Shut off PCM for 15+ seconds and powered it back up and read the file back out successfully. Did a compare file to the original pull and all is the same as well.

Now I know this is HPTuners and not PCM Hammer or other open source softwares but this confirms that it is in fact functional.

We already knew it would not brick it ...

The tool doesn't matter, though surprised HPT allowed it, however, it was all a waste of time ...

You have proved absolutely nothing we didn't already know, and eluded to if not out right stated above, if you really want to test it, you need to run a vehicle with it ... Ensure it saves it's parameters and it's not throwing codes.
Of course without disabling the thrown codes!

A simple VIN change (as stated above) would of made this a lot more worthwhile and not such an absolute waste of time!

I'm sorry, I thought I was being nice!

My apologies ...

[edit]
It's out there, I can't change it, if I had it to do again, I would only remove the first two paragraphs and the ", however, it was all a waste of time".

You didn't specify anything other than put XXX OS into YYY hardware. I will put the PCM in a vehicle and run it to satisfy your request. Want me to rotate my tires and dance on one foot too?

You don't have to put it in a vehicle for this test, burn the OS, battery off, wait, battery on, change VIN, battery off, wait, battery on, does the VIN stick.
