DiagBox version info with corrections and vehicle introduction dates
#1
Hi all, I found this table online that details the versions of DiagBox from v6 to v9 as it shows the many fixes that were applied and why, also the dates and vehicle applicable. If you have tried to do something on your Berlingo or Partner and couldn't, this table may show why and suggest the version you need to do the configuration. (thanks to the original creator - a lot of work has gone into it)

For example I rolled mine back to v7.57 last night as it offers the most configuration options over the later ones AND is the most stable after initially re-installing v7.01 then v7.02. Then I see in this table that v7.57 has an issue with the configuration of the additive pouch replacement on the B9 in this version that was corrected in v7.58 so I may jump up one step to that one in case I ever need to do the DPF fluid pouch. You get the idea.

Very useful info. Worth reading or copy/paste into a word doc for reference, so that is what I've done. Great info if you are a Lexia / DiagBox user like me. Or want to be and don't know which version to upgrade to for the car or van you have. It details the entry point and subsequent software fixes for each model & year.

One note from me is that once you upgrade past v7.62, the manual configuration options are either very well hidden, or severely reduced, or both. If you can stay at or below v7.62, I recommend 7.58 for all B9 and earlier models then you will have the most options available to you for customisation - with the exception of the B9-E (electric) as you will see they made lots of fixes to it's configuration after v7.62 and you may need to go to v7.83 or later to get all the fixes for your electric vehicle.

Also, if you have the Full-Chip Rev C Lexia interface (I have a proper PSA Actia one, I only got the software from eBay) then when you upgrade or downgrade (see my other post on downgrading to an earlier version of DiagBox if you already went too far) then it WILL attempt to update the firmware on your Lexia - mine is fine with this as all Full-Chip Rev C interfaces are, but it could brick a lesser or older one - there are notes on this page to show how to stop it doing the automatic Lexia interface update or "downdate" - though that may stop you going beyond a certain software version if the interface firmware does not support the later version. Old Lexia clones are most at risk with this.

Best advice, unless your vehicle is newer than 2016 or so, stick to v7.58 and a Full-Chip Lexia 3 rev-C interface and you will have little or no trouble doing everything you need. Next I plan to post a full map of the functions inside DIagBox so we have a list of where to go, to do what you need etc.

Hi Trevor, I have no idea why you're getting that message mate, its a commercial site and well known. I wouldn't trust malwarebytes however anyway, but that's another story lol 

(google "which anti malware programs are actually genuine", there is a good write up on a site somewhere about it where white-hat hackers tested many of the ones out there. A lot of the ones you would think are good, are actually rubbish. It's easy to sell a program that "finds" stuff, keeps the punters coming back - not the free-version folk, but those who buy the full version. None of us know an anti-malware program is actually finding genuine threats. Stick to Windows Defender or similar, big name, big resources, with reputation to maintain) - just my opinion and not trashing your personal choice of software...please don't take this as cheek, just a considered opinion. Everyone is terrified of malware and viruses, makes for a lucrative market...

I'm using a work laptop with Microsoft Corporate (Industrial) strength anti-malware and anti-virus live scanning, if I even get a sniff of a virus or malware my system locks me out and cleans itself then reboots, then I get an email from IT and all the jazz that goes with that. I work for a global corporation with top drawer software, and I can open and browse that page with no issues.

For those who can't, I've printed the page to a PDF (18 pages mind) and attached it here for anyone who has difficulties viewing it.

I was only really asking if others had had a problem with it, I tried it on a MAC with Safari and it throws up an unsecured warning. Reason http not https. Thank you for the PDF pages

No worries mate! I didn't want folk to think I'd posted a malicious link, but I do check before posting. Http Vs Https will often throw an error. Some browsers (like my work one) are set to seek Https secure pages for everything, and I often forget that. Sorry buddy.

No, when you install any copy of DiagBox, you go through various update steps from v7.01 onward, which must be followed carefully and to the letter or it gets stuck and you have to uninstall and start again. I would advise stopping at 7.58 and not updating further unless you really have to. That takes you to 2016 vehicles and has the most customisation options available. Also beyond that the updates get more awkward to do.

Just building a new laptop and decided to put Diagbox on, do you know if the older hardware/firmware  will work on 7.58?

Hi mate, yeah it does as far as I can tell as my interface only wanted a firmware update at v7.83 but I rolled back to v7.62 in the end and it still worked perfectly. So the interface firmware is backward compatible. Now I've tried them all, I'd stick at 7.62 as it's up to 2016 and it has much easier access to the configuration of options for the car functions.
