    The 2 hour training course requirement, is it something we can launch on our own? Depending on when you hold it if it's live, I may not be able to attend just due to work

                So, if I have a lot of credits, will that change anything? Will I still be able to unlock other VINs and ECU IDs that I haven't unlocked yet? Do I need to register as a business, even though I'm not doing this as a business, since I couldn't get refunded?

                  ECU Unlocks do not cost Credits any longer.


                  You only need to be a Pro to buy Credits in the future. You are completely free to use your existing Credits, which are only for Unlocking VINs now.


                  Essentially, there is no change unless you plan on offering flash services.

                    When you mentioned that credits are for unlocking VINs only, does that apply to my vehicle only? Or can I still unlock multiple VINs and flash custom files?

                    I'm not really offering flash services. I just want to make sure I can still flash others to recoup some of my loss and not have those credits used.

                      Yes. You can flash other folks for cash with the current Credits that you have.

                        I tried to unlock an ECU ID on the 1.3.1 pro software & it's telling me I need credits. Any idea?

                          are you out of credits?

                          Credits don't get used unless you use them. You don't lose credits by this change

                            Check again, please. I tested this today and it worked fine. We still get the three prompts, but the first one says that no Credits will be used.
