Did you load a tune in to your truck so it would have downloaded your stock tune in to the SCT when it replaced the one in the truck?

Have you updated your software on your computer? If you do then once you hook the SCT up to your computer you just click the button "Download stock file to computer" and select the place you want to save it. I am trying to remember but i think the first time you hook your device up to the truck it gives you the option to save your stock file to the device. Once it does that just hook it up to the computer and go through the steps above.

Yeah I updated it before I got the tunes. The stock file has to be on the sct cause I put it back to stock today. I did exactly what you described but it only saves the device info???

Also is the stock file like tune files, meaning are they serial specific?? Cause I do have a copy of my stock file from my old sct.

Here is the file name from my stock file. XP0501101022F_20120818152356_Saved.bef

It is not a CEF file like the tunes you get from Matt or Vivian. If that is not saving it, you may need to talk to SCT and see if they know why. Also do not quote me on this but your stock file should be your stock file regardless of device. The tunes we get from Matt are written specifically for the device we are putting them on so they are not copied. Since it is just reading your stock programming I do not think it would lock it to the device that downloaded it. But, i may be wrong.

Yeah when that is the same file I get when I save the stock file. But on my last SCT it saved 3 files. One with my vin number followed by .sul. And 2 other files flash.lbu and stock.lbu. This one only gets the SCT serial number followed by .bef like you're talking about.

I wonder if hey changed the format on how they are saving the stock file now. I have never had to use the saved stock file so I don't know if it would work or not. When I flash back to stock I just use the file saved on the SCT.
