I am trying to activate Developer Mode on my MMI unit however "Request Out of Range" is being returned when I try to set the adaptation to Active, both with Engine On and Off.

I was wondering if anyone would be able to suggest how to Activate this?

I was under the impression that the 8V MMI does not have a development mode like others.

The adaptation coding is in 5F, defaulted to Not Active. I am hoping to see if this is does indeed activate a "Green" menu.

VCDS can't activate the hidden menu on a A3 8V - nor can VCDS activate VIM on any of the new models (A3, A6, A7, etc.).

For this activation you can buy another product [.... moderated]

Maybe Ross Tech should look into what this VCP can do, that VCDS can't do ?? - as I understand it, it can Read/Write the EEPROM - where the hidden menu and VIM nowadays need to be activated.

Nope. We would rather people mess up the EEPROMs in their control modules using someone else's product, and we want nothing to do with enabling VIM.

The enabling of VIM will be the next that will be possible to activate via the SD card slot ;)

I have an application which activates VIM (tested, worked then reverted back to stock) so could not care less about having VCDS or any other tool do it.

I am asking about "developer" as I would to investigate further in to getting rain closing working with my sunroof, oil level display on MMI, ADS customisation and any other "safe" options that can be performed / retrofitted. Although my car has a good spec I purchased it (new) off the showroom floor with a great discount / no wait time and would like to add, if technically and financially possible, options that I could have had if I completed a factory order instead.

Am not sure if UWE's response was answering my question or if it was directed at rlarsen but all I wish to know is can VCDS be used to activate the Developer option? (I have no idea if it's even related to a hidden menu or not to be honest). If not then that's fine, no reason needed, but it would be nice to know so I can cross it off my work in progress list.

Off-Topic:

VCDS is amazing at what it does! VCDS does not have to do what other products do. If you want to complete something that VCDS cannot do then you need to by another product, simple.

I am asking about "developer" as I would to investigate further in to getting rain closing working with my sunroof, oil level display on MMI, ADS customisation and any other "safe" options that can be performed / retrofitted. Although my car has a good spec I purchased it (new) off the showroom floor with a great discount / no wait time and would like to add, if technically and financially possible, options that I could have had if I completed a factory order instead.

Am not sure if UWE's response was answering my question or if it was directed at rlarsen but all I wish to know is can VCDS be used to activate the Developer option? (I have no idea if it's even related to a hidden menu or not to be honest). If not then that's fine, no reason needed, but it would be nice to know so I can cross it off my work in progress list.

Off-Topic:

VCDS is amazing at what it does! VCDS does not have to do what other products do. If you want to complete something that VCDS cannot do then you need to by another product, simple.
As I also wrote you can't enable the hidden menu (developer menu) with VCDS on an A3 8V.

Which I noted but, and I mean no offence, I was looking for an official RossTech response.

The latter.

I don't know. We've not looked into that at all, as we've not had an 8V to play with, so for the time being, I'll rely on other people's assesment of what is and isn't doable there.

If you do a search on the web you should be able to find a way to enable the menu by using the SD card slot - but I haven't tried this my self, so I can't comment on it.

Wondering if anyone at Ross-tech might have any new info on this?

As far as using the SD card slot, I looked up that script, and as far as I can tell none exist which will enable the dev menu on this version of MMI. Only works on the older ones (IE: A3 8P).

Security Access, VCDS displays what you need and then change the adaptation channels in question. Been in the software for quite some time now.
