Long story short on HPT and throwing codes. If you go to the HPT forum, they say that you MUST have internet connection when first loading HPT (downloading the stock tune, upploading the OS and then the new tune etc). It says it can (and will) show a couple connection errors or failures etc, and then it will finally work.
That happened on mine. Third time was the charm iirc

Last, and most important to the dead pedal etc. MAKE SURE YOU ARE RUNNING THE BETA VERSION of hptuner. I think its 4.4.4 beta now.
Beta seems to have the most complete stuff for the GenV GM stuff.

And then, if you are still having problems, open up advanced view and then do a side by side tune comparison. HP actually makes this easy at it will highlight whats different so you dont have to do a number search.

Im trying to think of what else...

Oh, Go back and make sure everything is plugged in, and that you dont have a low battery. Low batteries mess with the BCM and the ECU on the GENV something horrible. It will send things like the power windows into a tizzy where they wont roll all the way down, and you have to go through the manual reset every time you start the car.

Reminds me, I need a new battery for the suburban. It keeps resetting my xm radio stuff...
Well, I didn’t have that luxury. The manufacturer of my kit has apparently been sending out RTD flashers and not full HPT Suite devices.

I sent the same factory tune to Will at Overkill and he had it running like a champ that same day (as opposed to waiting two weeks with no solution from the manufacturer).

The instructions said send two, but I'm assuming the second was the factory transmission tune that I also am assuming I can't read as the TCM is encrypted, correct? The instructions were written for the 2016 Camaro, as it is the only 6th gen that did not have an encrypted TCM.
I can’t really speak to that since I have a 2016 and don’t want to give you incorrect information or speculation. But I’m waiting to hear back too, I may send a friendly reminder message soon lol

oh sorry dgriff14. I was wondering how they did it. I had sent them a message saying I already had a mvpi2 and an unloced tcm, and asked if I could buy the kit with out the cost of the hp tuner credits and device.

I didnt realize it came with a different way to flash it. Sorry about that.

If you know someone with a mvpi you could always download both tunes and cross check them, if the new one isnt locked. But it seems that you have it sorted with Will. I wonder if he mentioned what the issue was?

I probably wont go s/c until I finish redoing my suspension.

Yeah it’s working now, thank god. My car was down for 2 weeks in the meantime, and I kept overthinking it thinking I did something wrong.

But he didn’t mention, and frankly all that mattered to me was that it worked lololol
