Parameters for BMW Single ECU Programming with ISTA Expert Mode

Parameters and tips for you guys to add for BMW single module programming with Rheingold Expert Mode:


Try Single Ecu Programming with adding this Parameter to ISTAGUI.exe.config:
<add key="BMW.Rheingold.Programming.DeactivateIntegrationLevelValidation" value="true" />
Try only selectability of ECU's.

Like this:

<!-- Enable Programming -->
<add key="BMW.Rheingold.Programming.ExpertMode" value="true" />
<add key="BMW.Rheingold.Programming.Enabled" value="true" />
<add key="BMW.Rheingold.Programming.PsdzDataPath" value="C:RheingoldPSdZdata_swi" />
<add key="BMW.Rheingold.Programming.NoFinalTherapyPlanCalculation" value="true" />
<add key="BMW.Rheingold.Programming.DeactivateIntegrationLevelValidation" value="true" />

And this:



Some ECU modules need flash with 2 or 3 cooperated modules. ISTA does not allow program only one, so you need program module you want + other ECU connecting with programmable module.

Some modules can be programmed by one without touching others ECUs.

Want program by one module or code use BMW STANDARD TOOLS (Tools32, NFS, WinKFP, NCSExpert etc)
Expert mode does not mean that you can program only 1 module. You can but not always.


QHas anyone figured out single module programming for ISTA4? Only reason to keep ISTA-P held back is single module programming via expert mode for programming vehicles with unofficial retrofits.

A: Use partial programming, with double click on module choose between coding, programming and no action.

QDoes this allow modules to be 'hidden' from the update?

AWhen you choose software update and after finishing measures plan calculation you stay on confort tab, change for expert tab and there you can select or unselect the units that should be programmed or coded , then calculate again measures paln and you will see the choosen units plan to be programmed and/or coded.

If you don't want to update your CCC, CIC choose partial programming, after that you're choosing which modules to be updated without fear that some other will be updated.

OBDSTAR F108+ Review:


I have extracted pin from over 20 cars, all fine. Not necessary to connect charger to car as it doesn’t put Bsi in service mode like psa bsi tool, or avdi where windscreen wipers would activate etc. On average 5 to 8 minutes, although a 508 and a 2008 I did it found code almost instantaneously.


“F108+”is very fast for PSA newer car 2017.

I get pin with F108. Program with SKP900.


F108+ cost 110€ ! & pin code 3€ ( car before 2006, someone test ok on 2017 year ) , more than 100 success key programmed !


I plug on OBD2 and F108+ sniffing “kwp fast”traffic , i turn ignition “on/of” 10 times / 4 minutes


2004 C4 / this car is not CAN ! CAN protocol is after 2008 on PSA car , some user say NO HE CAN’T , but yes we can !


I’m sure full chip PCB F108+ with last update can retrieve all PIN code , it’s the same BSI for PSA ( Siemens , Valeo & J-C ) .


And if it’s not FULL CHIP tool F108+ , CONNECTION BREAK DOWN , k-line is not operational .
