a ZIP is posted in the Toyota Tundra forum thread somewhere. I tried it, but it didn't work with my Bluetooth OBDII dongle, so I just gave in and ordered it (just received it in fact).

Good price. Even the Chinese ones take just a week to come in. So it's not a long wait. Better for warranty though, in case cable is defective.

Got my cable, and after dealing with the USB driver issue, I can now make customizations! Does anyone know if it is possible to change the smart key entry on the driver's side so when you grab the handle it unlocks all doors instead of just the driver's door?

I got the car to unlock all doors on one click of the wireless remote, but we are getting spoiled and just leave the remote in our pocket now and touch the handle. But, when the driver does it, the passenger is still locked out and then they have to hit the unlock button on the inside to let everyone else in. Kind of defeats the whole purpose!

I am not able to get TechStream to communicate with the RAV. I am getting an error (forgot to write it down).

I think I might need to update MVCI firmare online. I see in the manual that I should be opening the XHorse Firmware Update tool and click on Online Update but I cannot find that tool

Edit: found JuneBug's post. I knew it was there somewhere

Yes, I believe you can.

With no cable plugged in my Windows Vista 32-Bit machine, I
Installed TechStream 7.20.041.exe
Installed J2534 - Mangoose Pro.exe
Installed TISKEY.exe

plugged the MVCi cable and installed driver that came with "TechStream 7.20" CD

Connected MVCI cable to car. Light is still red on cable port.
Double click on the TechStream desktop icon.

"Connect to Vehicle --> AutoVehicle Select" does not work,
"connect to OBD2" does not work

I download file "MVCI Driver for TOYOTA-CABLE 2.0.1.msi" from https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=249c4...F532375995!113

and run the msi package. I still cannot connect to Vehicle or OBD2.
I see that there is an icon on the desktop called "MVCI Firmware Update Tool".

I run this tool and click "Online Update" and I get an error "Unable to connect to the update server, please check the network connection."

I have attached my Cable Check status. Everything is red.

What am I doing wrong here?

Did you plug your cable to the OBDII Port first then you run the cable check?
