12.2017 XDOS Activation via Startkeycenter

This is the startkeycenter I used to activate 12.2017 Xdos with old keys. Move the folder to C:>PROGRAM FILES(x86)>MERCEDES BENZ. Launch startkeycenter from folder. Insert keys for xentry only. For Mb Star Connect C4 you should move the LIC.SLI file to C:PROGRAM FILES(x86)>MERCEDES BENZ>DAS>BIN which will activate it with no timeout. Blacklist is self explanatory which folders they should go in. I don’t claim any of this files…… I am just sharing which is what this forum is supposed to be about.

Top Reasons to Get MB Star SD C4C5 and Laptop Full Package

Here list reasons why you should buy a Benz diagnostic tool with a laptop full package:

—With the Dell D630’s dedicated serial port, there was no issue for me…. it was plug and play… I just loaded the HDD from the Seller into my Dell and all I needed to do was activate WIS/EPC and XENTRY/DAS with “activation keys”… I only use the Dell for mb star sd c4 purposes…

—Bought an older Dell D630 laptop with a serial port and plan on buying MB SD Connect C4 directly installed in a Dell D630 hard drive. No Virtual Machine issues.

—Mercedes Benz Star diagnosis C3 / C4 actually specifies the computer or tablet used in the SDS environment… The T30 is rather slow but will get the job done.

—If your ever in the market for a faster SDS laptop, the Dell D630 with at least 2Ghz and the speed improvement especially when using Xentry is like night and day.

—the HDD that is pre-loaded with the software for SDConnect 4 by the Seller, is inserted into the DELL D630… The DELL D630 is the fastest laptop with the RS232 feature.

—Need to connect directly into a RS232 port without using an interface – this is why I went for the complete system with laptop.

—The software Xentry/ DAS is a bit slow on an old IBM so that it is worth paying a bit extra and getting a Dell D630.

—There is a very specific set of COM ports you must use for it to work. For example you need DAS to be looking at COMx within the VM session, then VMware needs to redirect that to COMx which is a ‘physical’ serial port on your machine.

—It’s probably because it has a real com port. Most laptops these days have just a USB port and things don’t always work right if you’re using a USB to RS-232 converter. You wouldn’t want to brick a component during an update if you’re using USB. The other option would be to get a  C4 system, but then they cost more. I think there are a couple other systems out there like IBM that also have real com ports.

—The PART D mux(C3) is a serial ported mux—that’s the reason for the Dell and IBM older laptops.

—The PART W mux(SD connect C4) is and Ethernet/wifi connected system and that is the reason for use on other laptops—the issue is the operating system currently DAS Xentry only runs on XP.

—Plug and play!! It is more convenient for users because the software for C3/SD C4 diagnostic tool will be pre-installed before delivery.

Here are advantages of MB Star diagnostic multiplexer:

MB Star C3 Advantages:

SD Connect unlock dump: 100% works!

This is a dump read out from PIC16LF88 chip of my own SD Connect C4 device (4-5 years old). It’s 100% working.I know it exactly because I’ve succesfully unlocked 3 units for last 2 days using it. Each one works fine.You don’t need to buy a new one PIC16FL88. You just have to program chip from your own device.After that when you run your SDconnect you will probably see that serial number, OS version of your device are changed into zeroes “0000”.

Don’t worry. Just change your Mb Star Connect C4 to factory state using buttons near by LCD (no need to explain “How to…” because it’s quite clear). After rebooting you’ll see actual SN, OS version and so on.

Also you can change serial number of your device. 24c02 contains it. After changing number just run “factory settings” function…other way it will not change. After reboot you’ll probably see (on lcd of your device) your SN looks like “the number you’ve programmed into chip +1″… I mean 10001 inspite of 10000 for example and so on, but in SDNC tool kit you’ll see the real SN (10000), and after succesfull reconfiguring your device you’ll see the right number on LCD of your C4 on CnAutotool.

I was using cheap ssop28 (0.65mm step) adapter and Pickit3 programmer to read/write PIC16lf88. This scheme made for Pickit3 OEM socket(ICSP).

Also I’ve got dumps of both flashes 29f016 and PIC18lf8680 if somebody need it.
