SCT Tune not supported?

I just had the swamps FICM upgrade and plugged in my sct tuner and it says "strategy tune not supported" i just had it unlocked by sct and it has 5 unlocks available. IT seems like i read that sct was having problems unlocking the 6.0l newest ford flash. does swamps use that on their ficm's? Any ideas anyone? Is their someway i can get the tunes from sct?

Which SCT device? SF3, Livewire, new model X-3, original model X-3, X2 9400, X2 9415.

Have you tried updating the correct SCT firmware and/or Tune revision (canned tunes).

Did you install the FICM or have a dealer do it, if a dealer did it, they might have also reflashed the PCM.

I have a FICM on my truck with the latest ford flash. I just swapped out my old one and put this one on, no problem. The SCT does not flash your FICM. It only flashes your PCM and TCM.

its the sf3 flash, i have updated it with the latest firmware and all. I a;so installed the FICM myself it was ready to go from swamps i didnt have to have it programmed at ford. Is it possible that SCT didnt load the 3 canned tunes on it when they unlocked it?

Edit: worldwide I do remember the guy from swamps saying that, now that you mention it. I just aquired some false info from another site.
