I used FSC CODE Calculator on my 2012 F30 with CIC, one week ago:
It generates the FSC in three steps. But you have to change the “year-parameter” in the batch-file to a later map (e.g. 2016 – or even later – instead of 2014), then it works perfectly.
The Default 0x06 for 2014 does not work, but 0x09 does!
In adition, you’ll need an ENET cable and a working EDIABAS intallation (http://bmwcoders.com/forum/bmw-gt1-ops-opps-inpa-24/bmw-inpa-ediabas-installation-guide-software-328/)(32-bit – It does not run on 64-bit Windows!)
More FAQs as follows, wish they will be helpful if you have same problem to solve.
Q: if fsc code generator also works for NBT?
A: I think it should work. But you have to change the first parameter in the Batch file “FSC.BAT” from 0x28 to 0xA9, if you want to use the “Road Map EUROPE Next”
Q: Does fsc code generator also generate the certificate, needed by E-Sys?
A: No, it only generates the FSC Code, needed to upgrade the maps.
Q: Will fsc code generator generate codes for any Maps? I ask because I want to use this to generate the codes for BMW North America Premium 2014.
A: I installed the North America Premium 2014-2 without any problems.
I used 0x2D and 0x08 in my fsc.bat file:
c:\EC-APPS\fsc a.hex 0x2D 0x08 > code.txt
Thanks for the FSC Generator!
Q: Unfortunately, not working for NBT
A: I assume you have the NBT and not the CIC HU, right?
If so, you need to version of the SWID_reader that reads the DE (not 1B) FSC.
Just an FYI for those of you who have NBT or can’t get SWID reader to work at all.
You can actually grab the 1B or DE file from E-sys by doing the following:
Base variant 0x63 (For HU_CIC or HU_NBT)
Application ID 0x1B for (App ID 27 for CIC) 0xDE (App ID222 for NBT) <— This is the App for your Nav enabler
Upgrade Index 0x1
Move Store FSC from the left to the right
Click Save and name the file FXXXXXX_0001B001.fsc for CIC or FXXXXXX_000DE001.fsc for NBT where FXXXXXX is your VIN.
I’ve tried this method for both CIC and NBT and it works.
