How To Save Your Stock File With An SCT

Hi,

I will attempt to explain this as simply as possible as I realize, at times, I can be confusing but luckily, not to myself

I will list below the instructions for saving your stock file with the X3/Livewire and also with the XCal2. Please keep in mind that you will save the file to your computer but you would not be able to open the file at all because you do not have the software to do so.

The reasoning behind saving it is that should you ever have an issue where you would lose your stock file, get locked out, etc....., you would have the file readily available to send to SCT so they can convert it and you can reload it.

FOR THE X3/LIVEWIRE:
Open Livewire Updater
Connect X3
Click on Get Stock File
Save the File to a Location where you will be able to find it later.

FOR THE XCAL2
You will need to request an XC2dump file from SCT
Unzip & Save the files to your Desktop
Connect XCal2
Open the XC2dump
Click on Choose Dump File
Save the File to a Location where you will be able to find it later.

Thanks
Vivian

Here is the tricky part Vivian. Since you recommend always returning to stock before plugging you downloader into the computer, will this still work if the truck was returned to stock before the dump takes place?

Where do you get the software from? I looked on SCTflash.com but wasn't sure what I needed to download. Any help?

I've seen that site before. I am sure you need to download the drivers but what is the other piece of software do you need to download to be able to transfer the file?

Hi,

I'm sorry. I had not realized there were replies

If you have the Xcal2, you need to contact SCT and request a dump file. Their telephone number is 407-774-2447, dial 5 for tech support. I am going to find out if there is a general email address for tech support and, if so, will post it here.

If you have the X3, the instructions are in the first post. You can do this in the Livewire Updater software that you use to download tunes and update your firmware.

For this application, you will need to leave the stock file in the SCT. Please make sure to turn off all screen savers, on your computer and make sure your usb cable fits tightly and does not move or slip. These are just precautions.

Thanks,
Vivain
