Development would be here. Most sellers include that to pump up sales. Unless your seller is a crappy one, it should include it. It's located in any module menu at the bottom of page.I've spent most of the evening reading this great thread on Star.
I have a C4 wireless with Dell D630.
It all works fine but I have a couple of questions.
I see many of you are mentioning developer mode, my version (from China) does not have this function enabled, is it possible to enable it?
I intend in the future upgrading a W164 with LED rear lights, what part of Star will enable me to change the coding on the SAM module? Most Chinese companies are charging £90 as a one time charge to log in and code for you. Is this the only way? What does offline coding mean and it looks like only the C3 may do this?
Thank you in advance, there are some very knowledgable people on here!
Great thread and forum, my favourite!
When you want to code the car, you will be doing it in development menu....and that means you need to have a working grasp of german language. That's because everything in development mode is in german.
Coding is done through Development data -> Control unit adaption -> Control unit adaption (variant coding) -> Implizite Kodierung -> German fun!
You will have to go to whatever module tht controls what you want to do...like for instance, rear tail lights are controled by rear SAM module. So that's where you'll be going to code. Or CGW, or whatever.
