Arrow ☛ MHD Flasher F Series (F8x) discussion ☚

As we are announcing today MHD for F series, we would like to use this official thread to gather discussions, updates, user logs, dynos and videos. Community feedback has helped us shape the best tools and maps for E-series, so we're counting on everyone to repeat the same joint effort.

To get things started, here is the product description.

MHD Flasher F-Series (N55/S55/N13)


The MHD tuning team is proud to present its latest product - the MHD Flasher for BMW F-Series. After two years of development, the wait is finally over! The MHD Flasher F-Series is a complete flash tuning app for your BMW. Unlike a piggyback module, it is capable of complete DME remapping while retaining all OEM safety mechanisms. This allows for maximum performance,maximum safety, and unrivaled drivability.
Several thousand customers worldwide have been enjoying the number one flash tuning tool for the E series N54 and N55 platforms (MHD Flasher N54 / N55 E-series) since 2015. Come join us now for the F-series launch and see what all the hype is about!


Product details:

Full OBD Flashing:
You can install MHD right at home and start tuning immediately! There is no need to remove and send out your DME for a costly “unlock.” Simply download the MHD Flasher F-Series app that connects via a K+DCAN cable to your Android device and your vehicle’s OBD-II port, start the app, and within 25 minutes the initial installation is complete. Further map changes are much faster - only 3 minutes! You can revert your vehicle to the factory OEM flash at any point, and no initial backup is necessary.

Stage 1, Stage 2 und E85 OTS (Off The Shelf) Maps by PureBoost:
We offer a wide selection of OTS maps for the N55 PWG, N55 EWG and S55 engines suitable for many different vehicle modifications and octane levels. They have been extensively road and dyno tested, just flash and go!:

N55 EWG* (Vehicles built after 07/2013 with electronic wastegate):
  • Stage 1 (up to 360HP/540NM) - 91oct/95ron, 93oct/98ron, 95oct/102ron, for stock cars. (not available for M2 and X4 M40i)
  • Stage 2 (up to 390HP/580NM) - 91oct/95ron, 93oct/98ron, 95oct/102ron, for cars equipped with an upgraded intercooler or high-flow downpipe.
  • Stage 2+ (up to 430HP/630NM) - 91oct/95ron, 93oct/98ron, 95oct/102ron, for cars equipped with an upgraded intercooler and high-flow downpipe.
  • Ethanol Mix Maps: Stage 1, 2 and 2+ E20 Maps for ethanol blends of 20%

N55 PWG* (pneumatic wastegate):
  • Stage 1 (up to 340HP/540NM) - 91oct/95ron, 93oct/98ron, 95oct/102ron, for stock cars. (not available for M2 and X4 M40i)
  • Stage 2 (up to 370HP/580NM) - 91oct/95ron, 93oct/98ron, 95oct/102ron, for cars equipped with an upgraded intercooler or high-flow downpipe.
  • Stage 2+ (up to 400HP/630NM) - 91oct/95ron, 93oct/98ron, 95oct/102ron, for cars equipped with an upgraded intercooler and high-flow downpipe.
  • Ethanol Mix Maps: Stage 1, 2 and 2+ E20 Maps for ethanol blends of 30%

S55 (BMW M3 / M4 F8x):
  • Stage 1 (up to 530HP/700NM) - 91oct/95ron, 93oct/98ron, 95oct/102ron, for stock cars.
  • Stage 2 (up to 560HP/780NM) - 91oct/95ron, 93oct/98ron, 95oct/102ron, for cars equipped with high-flow downpipes.
  • Ethanol Mix Maps: Stage 1, 2 and 2+ E30-E50+ Maps for ethanol blends of 30%-50%+ (in development)

Topspeed limiter removed on all OTS maps.


As an alternative to built-in maps, many local and remote tuners can provide advanced custom mapping for those who have more extensive modifications or unique performance / customization needs.

Monitoring and Logging Module:
Monitor your engine behavior to make sure it is running perfectly using a configurable and very responsive gauge layout. 50+ engine parameters are available at a glance! Activate the logging mode to save the data to a standard CSV file for later analysis using the built in log viewer. Additionally, we will happily provide free logs analysis.

These are some of the available monitors:
  • Boost, Boost Target
  • Lambda (AFR)
  • Intake Air Temp (IAT)
  • Ignition Timing per Cylinder
  • Coolant Temperature
  • Oil Temperature, Oil Pressure
  • Transmission Temperature

  • Throttle Position
  • Wastegate Duty-Cycle (WGDC)
  • RPM
  • Speed
  • EGT
  • And many more…
MHD exclusive advanced monitor:

  • Boost target EX which can read higher than 22.x psi (the BMW boost target channel can't)
  • Base Compressor Axis: Boost Setpoint, MAF req WGDC.
  • Active Torque Limiters
  • And many more…

Flash-time Options::
These flash options can be applied to any map directly through the app!:
  • Exhaust Burble: Customize your desired exhaust burble (duration & aggressiveness, min speed, min rpm) and enjoy the sporty sound
  • N20 Map Sensor (on N55)
  • Remove top speed limiter (Vmax)
  • Cold start noise reduction
  • Exhaust flap open in sport mode
  • Limit power per gear
  • Precision Raceworks Coil Kit Support
  • More options will follow with new updates.

FAQ:
Q: Can I test the connection before making a purchase?
A: Yes, simply tap the MHD Store button. The ECU connection is checked before displaying available purchases.

Q: Can I tune different cars with one license?
A:Each vehicle has its own unique license (VIN and google account locked), tuning a different car requires purchasing a new license.

Q: Can I tune multiple cars with one google play account?
A: Yes, you can purchase multiple licenses with one google play account.

Q: Can I transfer my licenses?
A: Licenses are personal and stored by google along the account used at purchase time. The purchases are tied by google to the first account and can’t be transferred to a new google account.

Q: Does my Android device need to be permanently plugged to the OBD port?
A: No. Once a flash is performed you can unplug your device.

Q: Do I need to purchase a new license each time I flash a map?
A: No, you can reflash as many times as needed. MHD maps updates are free.

Q: Is a battery charger required?
A: It is highly recommended for long flashes (install, uninstall). A healthy battery will handle short flashes (map changes) fine but the use of a battery charger remains recommended.

Q: How do I take good data logs?
A: Press the Monitor (auto log) button, stabilize around 2500 rpm / 3rd gear (4th on 8 speed AT) with DSC fully off. Mash the pedal, shift at 6500 and 2-3s after the shift into 4 release the throttle. Slow down, stop the monitor. If you want us to review your log, then upload the log to www.datazap.me and send us the link.

This Product is for Competition/Racing/Off-Road Use Only.

Used the N54 MHD flash on my 135i and it was a great app and tune. Look forward to using this on my M4.

I noticed iOS was not listed in the 'What you need' section. Is MHD also iOS compatible? If not, when if at all will this come online?

What for a stupid reply. The beta is ongoing since long time with dme unlock. Better check the n54 mhd stuff before you reply such a nonsense...

The silence of everyone who has other flash solutions slowly realizing they threw that money down the drain is deafening! Nice work MHD crew. Can't wait to jump on this.

I think the wireless development Martial has planned might include an iPhone app as well.

Congrats on the release, another good option for F8X owners.

Out of curiosity, how does your solution go about the unlocking process? Is it the same as what everyone else has been doing with the recent release of OBDII unlock solutions or have you guys found a different method?

iOS is not possible for now because Apple forbids the user of third party USB cables. Once the MHD wireless adapter is done, we'll be able to port to iOS. Most Apple user tend to get a $50 android tablet at best buy and call it a day.

We only recommend only the bimmergeeks pro cable since it's good quality and 2x faster for flashing than any other cable. Once the app goes public you can test your cable. You can ask to join the beta by emailing us.

Everyone is using the same hack, there is no doubt about that.

Hello Martial

Not possible to have a 100% e85 map? Seems that the S55 with dual HPFP can handle it

Once bm3 has unlock its same thing. Bm3 flashes faster though. Price is a wash but if you count in you can transfer your license with bm3 then it could be cheaper too so whatever. bm3 gives you all features and map at start which makes it seem more expensive. Bm3 also have iPhone support and wireless flashing since the beginning and you can also use your laptop and Android too.

I did not want to downvote BM3 (flashing without unlock is coming there as well). I just can say that MHD is way more popular then BM3 here in Switzerland/Europe, as they have been into the market since n54 times.
JB4 also works with MHD for the backend flash.

BM does not flash faster. 2min each flash is way enough. And on the fly map changes are on it's way as well. Technically you could sell your MHD Flasher Licence as well. But it's nonsense (sell your google mail account). The maps are bound to the VIN, so no possibility there.

Both are good solutions. I would choose what is more popular in your area (troubleshooting, custom maps etc)
