boot mode and disconnects when updating firmware

Recommended Posts

i have a g4 plug in for rb25det. when i connect with laptop to upgrade firmware it says it is in 'boot mode' when i press Y to start firmware update it says it has stopped due to another program wanting to use that port. i currently have firmware 4.2.2 i have tried both pc link & pclink g4. how can i fix this?

Just check what com port is being assigned when the ECU is connected to the PC.

Often to get the firmware update program to work the com port should be no higher than Com 9

Hi I have the same issue with G4 plug-in for Mitsubishi VR4 and neader removing FIFO control or asigning the com port above 9 resolved my problem . Still i get the message ' bootcode present' the firmware download was interupted.

Please advise if anyone have a solution for that problem ?

Hi Lukan,

Can you please advise what version of firmware you were trying to upgrade to?

If you connect your ECU to your PC, Start PCLink, DO NOT connect to the ECU, but click ECU Controls > Update firmware, what happens?

Hi Lukan,

Thanks for the screenshots. I can see what your problem is. You are using PCLink G4+ and trying to upgrade to a FW version meant only for the G4+ range of ECUs.

The latest PCLink and firmware for the G4 range of ECUs is 4.9.9 and is available here:
