What is ISTA and what is ISTA+:

ISTA is a workshop system that contains BMW AG Data and Information. ISTA stands for Integrated Service Technical Application. Way back when, during the initial development of this tool, BMW used DIS (Diagnostics Information System), and as the programs evolved and due to the nature of the file naming conventions utilized by BMW, the workshop system became known as Rheingold in the enthusiast world.

How to Use BMW ICOM B for initial Use ?

Before flashing anything with a new ICOM-B for the first time, I recommend doing a stress test with Tool32.

Configure Ediabas to most async ab 625, open Tool32 and cicr.prg.

Then select job fs_lesen

and then from Tool32 top bar, select “play”.

This will make the “read error memory” job run on repeat.

If it can do it for 30-60 minutes, then the head is probably ok.

Obviously the BMW ICOM emulator must be connected to the CIC.
