Hey Tom--just bought a tune from you. Tried installing it today and the Predator keeps saying

Original backup file NOT saved. This could be because there was already a custom tune installed.

I'm about 99% sure no owners have ever had a tune installed.

The Predator HAS been used before. My theory is that the previous owner's backup file is stored on there somehow--or is that supposed to get overwritten when you back up your own file?

How do you know if the Predator is locked? Also if an ECU is locked does it just not start?

I DID update the CROM file because I wanted it to be the most current and have no issues. I don't see exactly how this would affect me since I hadn't connected the Predator to my car previously, but I'm not an IT wizard.

Any ideas? Anyone, doesn't have to be Tom.
