6WA coding question

Hey, today i have retrofited 6WA to F10, but when i went to flashing procedure i only got cdDeploy checkbox active,all other were greyed out, coded succsesfully, cluster works as it should, but tamper dot is visible (Cluster was virginized, mileage lower than the cars actual).

Main questions:
Why were other flashing options greyed out?
Why there is tamper dot still visible?

Thanks!

To my knowledge I-step is incorrect that's why those others are greyed out. Did you code the kombi to the car first before flashing it? Red tamper dot could possibly mean cluster wasn't virginized correctly. Pm me and let me know your steps on how you did it. And I can go thru with you which steps you might have missed or is incorrect

Hey vuthy335, does this mean this is not a plug-and-play DIY? Please excused the potentially dumb question, however, I've been wanting my F10 to have the same digi-screen I had on a 6 Series. Thanks for your response.

The install itself is plug and play. Actually getting it to work correctly requires some coding work.

Unspec is correct. The install is plug and plug. But you have to do some coding for it to adapt to your car correctly. Otherwise you will get the infamous "red dot".

I'd definitely would like to further explore these option. I used to have a 6 series with it and it was awesome. I would love to have it on my F10 550i.
