Post by Hondata »

We have confirmed that FlashPro will work with non-Hondata jailbreaks.

Hi,

it does mean that we can purchase the FlashPro Device and we will be able to tune our FK8 ECU´s?

the jailbreak not needed any more, right?

Please confirm

Kind Regards

No, it MUST be jail broken. This means that Jailbreaks done by someone other than Hondata should work.

I think all car owners/tuners should be careful if the cars are jailbreak by other shops that is not done by the Hondata Jailbreak way. As i have encounter ECU wierd issues when Flashpro was locked n tuned on a non Hondata jailbreak ecu. Took me two weeks to figure out what causing the issues and finally solved with Hondata team.

Just an advice to car owners. Please send ECU to Hondata approved dealers to jailbreak and flashpro.

Just an advice to tuners. Please verify who Jailbreak the ECU. If not done by approved dealers or the Hondata jailbreak way, you are in risk and put a disclaimer to owners who got other shop who claim can jailbreak.

My story:

Hondata unlocked my ecu,
bought Ktuner V1.2 and used it for a year,
returned the car to stock and Installed flashpro without issues.

Just to confirm, does a non-Hondata jailbreak still work for the 2020 FK8 models?

Sounds like Hondata won't be doing mail-in jailbreaking until California lifts its COVID restrictions, which doesn't look like that's happening anytime soon.

Since we do not know what any other jailbreak other than our own does, we can't answer that.
