Posted by Bold Commerce on

Mini guide on how to extract your DE (NBT) or 1B (CIC) file, generate the FSC code.

Prequisites:
ESYS
ENET Cable
PSDZData Lite (lite version is fine for FDL coding, you only need the full package if you want to flash ECUs)
Token (not required to reach FSC Extended)

CIC PREMIUM Maps or NBT NEXT Maps 
If you are generating maps for NEXT, then you need to follow the guide for DE
If you are generating maps for MOVE, MOTION or PREMIUM, then you need to follow
the guide for 1B


Extracting the DE or 1B file:
Fire up E­sys make sure your connected to the F20 (not F20_Direct) via your VIN and then in
the left-hand vertical menu select FSC Extended.


For NBT (DE File):
In the Parameter section enter:
1. Diagnostic Address (hex) = 0x63
2. Click on the Identify button and the Base variant HU_NBTwill be populated
3. Application ID for NBT= 0xDE
4. Upgrade Index = 0x1


For CIC (1B File):
In the Parameter section enter:
1. Diagnostic Address (hex) = 0x63
2. Click on the Identify button and the Base variant HU_CICwill be populated
3. Application ID for NBT= 0x1B
4. Upgrade Index = 0x1

In the Action section:
5. Select Store FSC and move from left to the right
6. Click on the Read button
7. Click Save and name the file in the following formatXXXXXXX.fsc where XXXXXXX is
last seven letters/numbers of your VIN or your donor NBT vin if you have retrofitted the NBT.
8. [Optional] You can now disconnect e­Sys from your car as the next stages can be
performed offline.


Getting the Code Generation Software:
Unzip the directory attached. The directory can be placed/run from anywhere.


Generating the FSC code using the BMW_CIC_NBT_FSC_Generator for NBT:
If you are generating NBT, copy fsc.exe in the NBT_FSC directory to the tools directory.


1. Place your XXXXXXX.fsc into your tools directory (same location as the Base64.exe)
2. Open a command prompt (DOS Screen) and go to the tools directory
3. Type "Base64 XXXXXXX.FSC XXXXXXX_000DE001.FSC" and press enter
4. Open BMW­FSC­NBT­Generator.exe
5. Click "Browse" and select the XXXXXXX_000DE001.FSC file you generated in step 3, it
should be in your tools directory.
6. Choose your map product from the list (For me it was "Road Map EUROPE NEXT 2015­1)
7. Click "Generate"


Generating the FSC code using the BMW_CIC_NBT_FSC_Generator for CIC:
If you are generating CIC, copy fsc.exe in the CIC_FSC directory to the tools directory.


1. Place your XXXXXXX.fsc into your tools directory (same location as the Base64.exe)
2. Open a command prompt (DOS Screen) and go to the tools directory
3. Type "Base64 XXXXXXX.FSC XXXXXXX_0001B001.FSC" and press enter
4. Open BMW­FSC­NBT­Generator.exe
5. Click "Browse" and select the XXXXXXX_0001B001.FSC file you generated in step 3, it
should be in your tools directory.
6. Choose your map product from the list (Road Map EUROPE PREMIUM 2014­1)
7. Click "Generate"


Preparing the USB stick:
Takes about 45 mins to upload the Maps to your car; make sure you enter the code
in CAPITALS, it has been said that you should have the car on/running during this period. But
for me just pressing the Start button once was enough. Once the update is done, you will get
a success message, wait a few minutes then turn the car on/off and then the version number
will reflect the new map.


NBT
USB stick needs to be FAT32 (32GB is enough) when you extract the map data to the stick
Make sure you extract the folders to the USB root. The folders will be like:
1 (directory)
2 (directory)
3 (directory)
4 (directory)
config.nfm
NBT_ECE_101141.3.111.pkg
NBT_ECE_101141.3.111.pkg.sig


CIC
For the PREMIUM (CIC) maps you will have three directories:
USB1 (directory)
USB2 (directory)
USB3 (directory)
Copy the entire contents of USB1 to the root of the USB stick, should only be the following:
config.nfm
pkgdb (directory)
Once uploaded to the car, the car will ask for USB2. Delete both the config.fm and pkgdb
from the root and repeat the above with USB2....and then again with USB3

Notes:

What happens when NEXT/Premium comes out? You just need to edit the Lookup.xml file with the new map details, just look at the previous entries, its follows a sequence.

Backup your FSC file!!!

Save your XXXXXXX_000DE001.FSC file, you can now just refer to this file and generate as and when the new maps come along. If you lose this file you will need to do the extraction steps again.
