Not sure what they ran into, but I have never met an 'application missing or corrupt tool' that would not take the latest crom file.
There are instructions right on the dsdownloader that show you how to do it.
If needed, give us a call and we can walk you through it.

An addendum to all the other issues. I loaded the latest revision u7164-9r12a just to see. Loaded the 80HP tune and changed the shift points dramatically. The tune is in and absolutely nothing changed re shift points at all. As in my posts in another forum the tune does NOT allow me to write to the transmission control module at all. Please note that the custom tune that was written for me DID write to the TCM. Please make sure the new revision actually does write to TCM!

U7164
V.9r12a

Unit 1 8U7A-14C204-CG
Unit 2 7U7A-14C337-AB

2008 Ford F250 King Ranch 6.4L 4X4 CrewCab 3.73 gears

Just to let you know. I tried the new crom over the weekend. Truck runs okay. No idea re fuel mileage yet. Main issue is that I tried changing the shift points in the tranny by -20 in the MPH setting with absolutely no change in shift points at all. In the custom tune you sent the overdrive shift went from 80 kph down to 70 kph and I was able to avoid shifting out below 65kph. The factory set is 80 kph in and approx 78 kph downshift. So no the unit still isn't allowing me to mod the settings at all. Also there is no change in tire revs no matter where set. I still have the custom tune if that helps. The problem with the custom was when it went into regen it stayed in regen.

Mike,

Is 9t13g.crom the latest and go forward update for the U7164. I keep looking in the download and updates page for updates and this, nor the last one posted 9t13c.crom were posted on updates.

I called tech support and they said that you found glitches with 9t13c, so I wanted to know if it was safe to use either one of these?

Thanks,

Ray

Use the 9t13g that Mike L has posted it has been tested and works.

Tried The 9T13G. Still the same issues. I cannot modify the transmission shift points nor is there any effect to the tire revs (the revs default to a 17" tire and I am currently on 20" & the speedo is still accurate for the 20").

I expect tire size to not work, it seems to be done through the ABS module, but I need to look into the shift point adjustments.

The latest round of calibrations are being tested currently, should be another 2-3 weeks hopefully.
