I'm not sure on the eGolf side, or on the switching between car types. But the switching between petrol and diesel doesn't seem to be a concern. When I connected the AID to my car it popped up with diesel appropriate tachometer. At the time the guide I was following was somebody with an all track, and I bought the same part number.

Isn't there an option in ODIS-E that will only let a file be flashed to a module for which it is appropriate? I feel like I had to untick that "check box" in order to flash different firmware to my sound actor module.

I suppose I could probably open the ODX in notepad or something in see what's in there, maybe that will tell me before I spend 8 hours bricking my cluster 😂

For the tachometer, it's the tube_version..
The Passat cluster does not let me change the version, but the E-golf does, but nothing happens..

I should have been more clear... by "appropriate tachometer" I mean with proper maximum RPM for a diesel. As far as tube version I can change that to various styles (Golf, Alltrack, GTi, Golf R, etc.) via coding.

I have:
Passat 3G0920791C 3195 407 12.12.2017
E-Golf 5G1920795 2170 409 28.03.2017

Think I´ll try the Passat cluster today and see what´s possible..

No DATASET for AID, right?

This is where I saw that flash from A to B...

@downtime Do you suppose that the "Hardware Version" would present a problem? Looking at the link, the hardware part number is the same.

They went Index A 3193 to Index B 4191, so higher Index and SW version.
It might work or it might not. I know some clusters have been upgraded from A to B but it’s not so that all are the same. 3G0/5G1/5F0/5NA, they’re all a bit different.

No dataset in AID. Some passat gte clusters are flashed with normal passat sw and it works fine.

And the cluster needs to be flashed in car or in a bench with all necessary stuff so that immo is not on. Otherwise the flashing does not work.
And in car flash, make sure you have good battery charger connected because the flashing takes several hours.

Gotcha... Except for HW Version (409 for me, 407 in the link) all else looks the same. I'll probably risk it 😂.

Nobody here has any files, I guess :cool:

The Golf now has a fully working Passat AID.
The car pic option is Arteon, 2x Passat wagon and Passat sedan (limo)..

The tacho changed by just plugging it in (made the Odis-swap, so it might not just be magic) and @ 100km/h the GPS shows 96km/h.

When I changed display depiction (before connected to car) there were dots, but now it's not. Now in version 2 as I read someplace that's the setting for AID to show map and it works.

Gotcha, the only thing I have is the same one you have... VW_FL_5G1920791B_4191_S.odx.

I do wish I had the .frf version so I could flash from USB/SD... I'm not that concerned with it taking a long time although if fuzzy memory serves I read somewhere it's a bit quicker than ODIS.

It should be a lot faster. Tens of minutes instead of hours what it takes via OBD.

That's not what I want to hear since I have no way to get that version 😂. I even looked around about converting but all I could find is the ability to go from FRF to ODX, not the other way.
