How about MPPS V21

This is for your information: Looking for MPPS V21.


MPPS V21 clone in UK:


MPPS V21 software, car list download, review:


There are only 2 variants for the moment ORIGINAL and CLONE.

Clone you can buy for 100EU or less and ORI for 2500EU.

Thanks for comments:


Read written FLESH + MPC + EEPROM fiat marely 6f3, OK through OBD.

There are few tools that read-write EEPROM marely by OBD.

OBD-flash reading 3min 20 sec., 45 sec-writing.

MPC and EEPROM read OBD-20 seconds, 20 seconds writing (multyboot OBD) .A very strong and stable tool.


its always a risk with edc17 , this ecu opens easy , boot is safer , if you trust your tool you have to make a choice


tested edc16u1 from T5 2007 1.9tdi AXB 77kw.

read write ok over obd on kline.

make sure you remove the fan plug from fan controller when writing on this cars. when flash is erased the fan will work on max speed .


Ems3132 Bootmode. Read ok. Write not ok.

It erases the flash and cannot write.

Revived by k-tag.


MPPS V18 do not have capabilities to read and write PSG16 trough K-line.

If you want to flash PSG16 In Astra G, or Zafira A with MPPS V18, you must connect to CAN lines directly.

Vectra C, Signum etc – through OBD port.

It is not so bad for a 50-60 euro tool !!!


Jetta 2,0 16v TSi 200cv – MED17.5.2 Tprot10 

Read in Boot = OK

made OBD unlock and CKS by MPPS, write boot = OK
