    Looks like you might just need the newest beta, send an email to support with your serial number to request the newest beta software.

    looks like trifecta may have scrambled a few things in the code ultimately locking us out in this case, if you are able to have the pcm flashed back to stock via hpt or tech 2 you should be able to read it out.

    just talked to a tuner in fl, told me he had a customer with the same problem -Vince locked the file, and had to write everything over and perform "Cut, Copy & Paste" surgery..
