    For some reason the site didn't update the FW info from my car's recent update even I've updated the API#.

    I moved that site to a different server, and haven't enabled the cron job to do that. Which I do plan to fix later today.

    Ok, this has now been restarted. Since it's been awhile since it was running, a lot of API tokens have expired or changed. So I suggest that everyone who wants this to work again please go to ev-fw.com and do two steps:

    1. Add or update your API token
    2. "Edit" [​IMG] your car, and be sure to link your API car to the record in the "Please select car from your API to link to this record" field.

    And then the system will poll your car (only when awake!) to check for firmware updates.

    HankLloydRight - Firmware update won't accept my pin and won't send me a new one unless I converse with you. ? Do you know why?

    I've sent your PIN via PM. The recovery PMs don't always get sent through TMC. I strongly urge people to add their email addresses to EV-FW.com to help with password/PIN recovery and updates.

    thanks.

    Have the same issue today. As I'm from Germany, I wonder if I've to do posts in TMC forum regulary to be allowed to enter FW changes on my MS on the tracker site?

    Welcome to the TMC forum, @sunfreak.
    The EV FW tracker site is done independently from TMC, by member @HankLloydRight. So, no further posting on TMC is needed.
    Posting regularly does have other (even only therapeutic) benefits, however.
    Sharing both negative and positive thoughts on Tesla cars and company actions grows the size of this community as an unique source of information.

    Hi PaulusdB,
    Thanks for your welcome. I'm already registered in TMC for about two years, but don't post here as we have an German language Tesla forum here as well.

    Regarding the FW tracking site there's mentioned that someone who what's to login there 'must' have a TMC account!

    Many Thanks @HankLloydRight,

    got the new one and it worked fine! Also added my email address for later communication regarding this.

    Best wishes from GY,
    Juergen

    That was so I could validate that real people/owners were signing up for ev-fw and not random people on the internet.

    Is there a way to link previous firmware updates if you change handles on TMC? Same vin and token, but my list of previous updates disappeared when the handle changed.

    Hi Hank,

    Quick question - sorry if it's already been answered in the thread. If I no longer own a car should I delete the records for it, since I won't be putting updates in? I'm not certain if you're expiring them after a certain age or if the old data is used at all.

    My philosophy is to never delete any data! Did you sell the car or trade it in? If you sold it and know the buyer, see if they'll create an EV-FW account and I can transfer all of the history over. If not, I can transfer it into my account as a placeholder until such time the buyer signs up and I can transfer the history into their account.

    Ok, as requested (here), I've split the main table into MS/MX updates and M3 updates below that.

    In the process, about 5 people with Model Ss had submitted firmware updates with an M3 firmware build.

    Not knowing their correct build, I had to delete these records to clean up the data so there were no builds across model lines.

    So if you updated the tracker in the last week or so, please go back and confirm the site has your latest version, and if it doesn't please make sure to select the correct FW version when updating.

    When I get a chance, I'll add some code to make sure this can't happen.

    I figured you wanted to keep the data. I traded it in on my X. It went in to the loaner fleet, so I have no idea who the current owner is. I'm happy to keep it on my account, just didn't see anything about this case on the site.
