Trinity 'Incremental Updates' explained

Post by mikel »

When you go to the Trinity downloads page, you may see more than 1 update available.

The first update listed will always be the latest "full release". -- for example: Trinity Crom 1r06 - 67J_trinity-1r06.crom

Under this "full release" revision update, you may often see incremental updates. These updates (identified by the _UXXX predator based part number - i.e. 1r06a-u7135) are updates that will bring the Trinity support up to the current level of Predator support.

The incremental update will also state which "full release" revision you need to have applied to your Trinity first, before applying the incremental update. -- for example: Trinity Crom 1r06a-u7135 (this crom needs 1r06 update first!)

For example, lets say Dodge released a bunch of new calids for the SRT8. We update the Predator and make a incremental update for Trinity, since there is no reason to spin a full Trinity release, since only people with SRT8s are concerned about this update.

So, if you already had the base full release revision applied to your Trinity, you would just need to download the incremental revision update - a, b, c, etc etc - whichever was the latest/newest letter-release.

Once the next "full release" Trinity crom is released, it will contain everything that was previously released in the incremental updates.

Tried to update my crom file ...got message asking me to restore original backup to vehicle before I can upload new file. Saved original and last written files on my computer in folder Diablo Tunes. After the update is done should both the original backup and last written be reloaded into the Trinity ?

You have to restore the stock tune to the car, then let the Trinity read the stock tune back out after you update it.

So let me see if I understand this, I have a super charger and a custom tune, before I update my trinity the stock tune has to be put back on the PCM before I update the trinity?

new updates are normally just to add support for new vehicles.. no tune updates, no tool functionality changes... so if your trinity is working fine for ya, no need to update, you can leave it alone..

Update caused trinity to basically shut down USB doesn't read tool. Screen is black with one flashing red light? Does it have to be sent in?
