Do I need ICOM Next to flash BMW G30?

Purpose: Need to flash a BWM G series G30

Puzzle: Is the ICOM Next mandatory or is the up to date ICOM 1st generation ICOM from 2012 ok?
Can I flash NBT EVO with old ICOM?

Advice & Options:

1.ENET cable would probably be better for you.

2.I flashed NBT EVOs with old ICOM without problems.

3.Flashed all Cars with Icom Next and Online Aos with DHCP over Router. Since that i have Never any Problems with NBT or other. Flash E/F/G with this Setup.

Note that Online Aos is the online version of the BMW software for Diagnostic, Programming any many other things.

4.To answer your question
1st : you doesn’t need iCOM NEXT to flash the G series…but It actually Lot better & save up your times because iCOM NEXT has build in Gigabit connection.
2nd : old iCOM working find. It just take a lot longer.

5.Icom best any type , router I noticed w my setup I use desktop w 2 lan port and on a few f cars it actually faster then oem it programs up to 8 module same time w gigabit switch , and handle data lots faster than etnet cable and for certain modules the router is a must will crash hu high in kombi in a few others

6.Any icom will work , but to be safe with f,g,i series vehicles , use a dedicated router as kafas huh and a few other modules will crash if you do not use a router it handles the switches for Ethernet as those modules use more than 1 path way , in short it uses all 4 two pair wires and without router not good , this has worked for me for some time now good luck. note my router does not connect to wan

Conclusion:

BMW diagnostic tool ICOM Next is the best option for G series, working better and faster than old BMW ICOM cables. It handles multiprogramming and coding quite nicely. Gets the job done much faster if flashing the complete vehicle. Also, another benefit to Next will be compatibility for future cars.

How to Restore BMW ICOM Next in 12 steps

How to Restore BMW ICOM Next? This post will show an obd2eshop customer’s solution to BMW ICOM Next restore when you has red LEDs turn on issue when running firmware upgrade. In order to solve your incident, please apply the following 12 steps:

Note: DO NOT UNPLUG the BMW diagnostic tool BMW ICOM Next emulator from the {OBD II} jack after an update via {ISTA}, a web interface or an emergency software update.

The {ICOM Next} starts with flashing green SYSTEM {LED}s. After about 10 seconds it shows red {LED}s for about 2 minutes. After this, the {ICOM Next} reboots due to a firmware update.

If the {ICOM Next} {LED}s remain red for more than 10 minutes, or if the {ICOM Next} is unplugged directly after an update, please carry out the following procedure:

1. Please ensure that ALL of the following prerequisites are satisfied:

1.1. You require a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 flash drive. {USB 1.x flash drives are not supported).

1.2. The USB flash drive must be formatted with a FAT32 file system.

1.3. A minimum of 60 MByte free space is required on the USB flash drive.

2. Navigate to “C:\ProgramData\BMW\ISPI\data\TRIC\ICOMNext\ICOM-Image-03-14-08”.

ProgramData folder is hidden by default. In that case, you have two options in order to access the file or the folder:

– change the settings directly in the Windows Explorer (“Tools => Folder Options => View => Show hidden files, folders or drives”)

– or enter the whole path into the Windows Explorer’s address bar and press enter.

3. Copy “{ICOM_Next-rootfs-010002.tar.gz}” to the root directory of the {USB} flash drive.

4. Copy “{ICOM_Next-app-010008.tar.gz}” to the root directory of the {USB} flash drive.

5. Disconnect the {ICOM Next} from the power supply.

6. Plug the {USB} flash drive into the {ICOM NEXT}.

7. Press and hold the button pressed on the {ICOM Next} and connect the {ICOM NEXT} to the {OBD II} jack of a vehicle.

8. Keep the button pressed. The {ICOM NEXT} starts with all {LED}s glowing red. The {LED}s stay red; some may flicker orange/yellow. Keep the button pressed.

9. Keep the button pressed. After about 4 seconds, all {LED}s turn orange/yellow. All {LED}s now glow in the same colour.

10. Release the button and then press it three times within five seconds. The {LED}s glow or flash red and orange/yellow again.

11. Wait: This procedure may take several minutes. Do not disconnect the {ICOM NEXT} as long as any {LED} glows red.

12. After about 5 minutes the SYSTEM {LED} turns green again. The {ICOM NEXT} has been updated and is ready for use.

IMPORTANT: When the software update is complete, the {ICOM NEXT} needs to be connected to the dealer’s network in order to be reconfigured.

All previous settings are lost during the update. If there is a “{user.settings}” file on the {USB} flash drive, it will be applied after the firmware update.

Bmw Icom A2 interface

Topic:
I have recently bought the new BMW Diagnostic Tool Icom A2 interface with Isid 3.1, Ista/d 2.36 and Ista/p 2.49.2 software and i would like to ask if anyone knows if it’s possible to connect wireless to the car’s obd without the LAN cable since it support’s WLAN option or what else needed to make it possible? The Icom A2 interface is a clone.
Replied by shawnsheridan
I don’t think any of the A1 ICOM Clones had WLAN card inside, and I would be surprised if A2 ICOM Clone did. If it does, I am pretty sure you need a special Access Point connected to ISIS Server to use WLAN mode.
Replied by TroyE60
Thanks mate for your answer. Actually the ICOM A2 supports Wireless lan. As you can see from the below pic which I have already uploaded (Icom A2 connected in my car’s obd slot) with the system light green (turn on – operational) it has 4 lights. One for communication, one for wireless lan, on for LAN (RJ 45) and one for the operation named system. I was wondering if there is some kind of emulator or something to “trick” the interface so it thinks it is connected on an ISIS server even running from VMware.

How to do BMW coding with ISTA on MacBook Pro
Here are the details of my setup of MacBook Pro with VW Fusion – Windows 10 or Bootcamp, both working for BMW coding with ICOM software.
Hardware: 2015 Retina Macbook Pro 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD
Software: VMWare Fusion 10
VM Specs:
Windows 10 64Bit
4GB RAM
Thinly provisioned 200GB VM. (Thin means it only takes the space it is using but Windows thinks it is 200GB total.)
Software working on VM:
BMW Standard Tools 2.12 (NCSexpert, WinFKP, INPA, etc)
ISTA-D (Dealership Diagnostic Software, I did not install ISTA-P due to space concerns)
E-Sys (For newer Fxx/Gxx/Ix cars)
I back up my VM on an external hard drive and I take snap shots of the VM in case upgrades to the software fails and breaks.
I am very happy with this setup.
Another option instead of VM fusion is to bootcamp the mac. That’s what I’ve done also. It partitions the hard drive into separate drives, allowing you to boot the Mac up into windows natively. Then used bimmergeeks.com software packages. It’s very clear and easy to understand. It’s also been condensed some and has the most recent updates in place….
BootCamp
Pros:
Free + windows 10 license
All system resources are utilized by Windows only.
Acts like a windows machine
Cons:
Requires permanent space allocated to BootCamp
Requires rebooting if you ever want to go back to Mac
Unable to write into MacOS side of things without 3rd party drivers
VM
Pros:
Snapshots
Space allocated is only like a file, so free space is still utilized by Mac
No need to restart to get into Windows for something.
Cons:
Not free, and annual upgrades start to cost a lot
Shares resources with MacOS which can be limited if the Mac doesn’t have enough RAM, CPUs etc.
A little more complicated in initial setup sometimes.
Both have its merits and I ultimately like BMW ICOM A2 when the mac has enough resources to run it.
