OS: Win 8.1
DSDL version: 2.3.0.4


I got the message that my vehicle's calibration is not supported and that I would need to downgrade in order to continue tuning it with one of the canned tuned on my Trinity.

So I open DSDL, connect the Trinity, and try to update from the dcx 1r13h that was currently loaded on the device, to the 1r13 Megacrom file. It gets a little into the upload and then DSDL freezes. So then I try to load the older dcx 1r13f crom file because I heard that the "h" version is buggy. Still the same result where it starts uploading the crom file to the Trinity but then DSDL freezes.

In order to troubleshoot the root cause, I also randomly attempted to upload a Ford crom file to the Trinity and it uploaded with no issues, so it's not with my USB cable or connection to the Trinity itself. Any ideas on what I can do to get a dcx crom file to upload to my device that will allow me to tune my 2012 Jeep Wrangler?

Update: I tried working this issue on another computer with the Window 7 OS. I also only installed DSDL version 2.2.2.11 from the downloads page and when prompted to update to version 2.3.0.4 like on my Win 8.1 computer, I cancelled the update and kept 2.2.2.11. I am manually updating the dcx crom file to 1r13f and so far it appears to be having better success in the upload. Hopefully it will work. Perhaps the latest update version of DSDL is having issues with dcx from file uploads?

Seems the latest version of dsdl MIGHT have an issue, but one thing that is bugged to high hell is the DCX 1r13h update.

Yes, I reverted from 2.3.0.4 on my Win 8.1 machine back to 2.2.2.11 and was finally able to load the older dcx 1r13 firmware without issue, so apparently it is an issue with the update DSDL software itself and not OS related or .crom file related since I got it working on both my Win 7 and Win 8.1 machines. I am glad that I finally figured it out, even though it took about 3 hours of fiddling around trying to figure things out.
