Won't start and SCT X3 won't update

So my truck has been running fine, then today (after I already ran it several times) decided it didn't want to start. I hooked my SCT X3 up to it and I couldn't change custom tunes, I could only revert it back to stock. So I did, and it still wouldn't start. Then I checked for codes, none. But it did start as long as my X3 was plugged in. Had to do the same thing this afternoon. Anyway, trying to update my firmware on my X3 and it went blank and I can't get the "find" the custom tunes through the browse button.

Pretty much I have no idea what to do and Innovative is closed for the week so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Yeah, hopefully you backed up your stock file...SCT will be able to rebuild you a working file from your back up that should load and get you back up and running. This is not something that Innovative could help you with anyway...get on the horn with SCT and you should be okay.
