Issue with Foxwell tool for battery registration

Hi guys, I watched bunches of youtube videos and read posts like this one before attempting a battery installation / registration. Getting the old battery out and new one in was very easy. But I am stuck now on the registration step.

I bought a foxwell NT520 Pro (since they dont make 510 anymore...) and downloaded the BMW software on to it. When trying to register, I keep getting a "Battery change could not be registered" error. Says possible causes are No communication with IBS or engine electronics or DME/DDE program status cannot save battery change.

Has anyone had issues like this before?

I am not using an OEM bmw battery, but i've seen a few posts using an H8 AGM from autozone and everything working out, so not sure what i'm missing here.

Foxwell NT520 does not work with F10

I recently purchased a Foxwell NT520 pro scanner. I could never get it to work on my F10 BMW. It would never authorize the BMW software capabilities despite numerous attempts to make it work. Avoid this scanner for the F10.

I bought the same scanner to retract the rear parking brakes but did not work on my F10 so I returned it. I just followed the bavauto video on youtube to take the parking brake off manually.
