For everyone that was worried about writing with PCMTuner. This was done on bench mode. PCMTuner confirmed OBD mode also works.

Verification and transferring data.
PCM Tuner Write EDC17 data successfully.
If read write no problem but control unit fault code no car start, it is because of the bad checksum, must be done in winols, especially if using Dpf/EGR off software.
Agian why would be risky? The software is the same as the original pcmflash, they just cloned the dongle nothing changed in the software, with an original scamatik it’s safe like the original. I think its a good deal to buy only the dongle, you can save lot of money.
