EcuTek’s ECU Connect APP now has the ability to flash ECU via the EVI BT bluetooth unit. This can make it quicker and easier to deliver remote tuning services world wide. EcuTek’s Phone flash system used ProECU, The EcuTek Cloud servers and ECU Connect in order to deliver customer and vehicle information from the end-user and allow you to easily supply tuned and stock files directly to the customer without the need to use external software or systems.
The systems and processes are similar to the existing steps for remote tuning but minimises the number of steps for the end user, reducing confusion and speeding up the time it takes for you to get relevant information delivered. The licencing system (1 licence per ECU) is still used and VIN numbers are employed to allow you to specify files for each customers individual cars.
Phone flash infrastructure requires a subscription in order to access the services. You will need to ensure you have read, agreed, signed and returned
The standard contractual clauses for data protection.
The tuner agreement.
Have your master tuner status active and shown on the dealer locator.
Email Sales@ecutek.com to register your interest in the phone flash system and to be sent the required information for setup and purchase of the ECU, currently all purchases will need to be made using manual invoices and can only be completed after the required documentation is finalised.

Uploading to EcuTek Cloud
Uploading to the EcuTek cloud requires that you have received the customers details through the system. You will likely have already been in contact with your customer using email or other systems when they made the purchase of the EVI-BT. Once they have gone through the After install setup procedures in ECU Connect and done the first programming steps you will receive an email with details of their VIN name and contact information.
The email will have the required details to create a ROM, these will also be added to your EcuTek Account Customer list.
You should be able to then create the desired ROM as you would normally adding the RR patch .diff files or editing the maps as required for this customers particular setup. If you have not yet been contacted by the customer or need more details about the car to create a ROM file you can do this using your normal channels of communication. Once the Rom is ready for upload go to
File -> Upload to EcuTek cloud (or use CTRL + U)
Select the customer and the customers car
Enter the ROM description programmed into the ECU and the notes for the ROM
If you wish you can enter text manually here or it will use the text in the ROM description field in the ROM editor
Then click Upload Button
You can remove the files from the directory if they are no longer required or deemed unsafe, keep in mind though that once sent these files are the property of the end user and they can request them back from EcuTek if they wish.
Flash File Management in the Portal
Once flash files have been uploaded you can manage the files that the customers see in the list of the Flash Files folder in ECU Connect. There are several tasks that you can perform from the ProECU portal window. These include
Delete old files (eg previous revisions), keep in mind old files are still the end users property so they can request access to them if they wish.
Add Names, your reference comments or add customer facing comments
To delete a file simply select the correct ROM and press Delete then accept the deletion
To add comments that can only be seen by you simply add them to the boxes as required, these fields are mandatory so that you know what file you uploaded and where. If you want to manually add comments to the files that the customer can read use the following boxes,
Charging and Flash Points Usage
The Phone flash system still operates on a per vehicle charging system where each unique vehicle is licenced. These chargers are only made once during the first upload. Flash points are used as the charging mechanism and are taken directly from your EcuTek account (no need to allocate to a dongle).
The per vehicle cost is split into two sections and charged as follows
Phone flash licence fee for each unique vehicle that is taken to register that vehicle with you on the phone flash system. This is currently a fixed 50 flash point charge.
To Check how many flashpoints are required to perform an upload simply select the customer and VIN you wish to upload to and check the costing details in the bottom left of the upload window.
Receiving log files through the cloud
Customers can send you log files of the cars available logging parameters through the EcuTek cloud, this is currently done using email, the end user will press the send log file to tuner button and you will receive an email with the following details and a download link, the download link is a zip file with the logs included.
Once you have downloaded the file it can be opened and extracted to a file location of your choice. It will need to be extracted before ProECU can open it.
