I just ran across the latest release today. Can anyone out there interpret anything that applies to the LX, what it addresses, what it means or if it's just diagnostic stuff for the operator of the StarSCAN tool?

Core Software Information:
Note – This release does not contain a new release of the core software or operating system. The Features and Enhancements below are carried over from the last official release!
Features: (Released in 6.04)
• Support for managing flash files. This allows users of the StarMOBILE Desktop Client to download the latest flash file from the network and copy it to the StarSCAN using USB key.
• Added features that allow users to conveniently delete files from the StarSCAN/StarMOBILE file system once they are copied to a USB memory device.
• Added support in the application to delete all saved files, including flash files.
• Support CD was modified to allow users to delete files off of a full USB storage device prior to copying the application to the USB storage device.
• Added 125 KB CAN support in preparation for diagnostics on future vehicles.
• Enabled the “Backup Settings” feature on the StarMOBILE Configuration webpage. Backing up the StarMOBILE’s configuration data allows users to restore configurations if they are inadvertently changed or lost.
Enhancements: (Released in 6.04)
• Pressing and holding "+" or "-" button on the data recording template setup screen should make the number change continuously.
• The ECU View for the 06 KJ now displays "?" for the status of optional ECU's that are non-responsive. Diagnostic information containing the list of ECU's that are built on the connected vehicle is not available on the KJ. If a
particular ECU is non-responsive and is an optional ECU, the application has no way of determining whether the ECU is really non-responsive or is not physically built on the KJ. In an attempt to clarify this difference, instead of
a red “X” being displayed next to the optional ECU, a yellow “?” will be displayed.

StarMOBILE Specific Release Information:
• Please update your StarMOBILE™ Desktop Client Software to release 6.05. For detailed instructions on how to update your StarMOBILE™ Desktop Client Software review the ‘StarMOBILE Software Installation Guide’ located
on the DealerCONNECT website located at by navigating to:
DealerCONNECT > Service > Repair > StarSCAN and StarMOBILE Tools. This installation guide is also available in the Download Center section at
General Information & Tips:
• ALL - Clear All Stored DTCs - When the user selects the confirmation box to clear all stored DTCs, the text visible outside the dialog box remains on the screen until user exits the DTC menu and re-enters. The lingering text
gives the appearance that DTCs have not been cleared. This will be corrected in a future release.
• 2007 PM CCN Self Test - CCN does not support stopping of the Self Test. Do not attempt to stop the Self Test.
• 2007 PM CCN - Due to a CCN limitation the following Misc Functions (Unlock Driver Door on 1st Press, Language Preference, and Measurement Unit) may not update on the StarSCAN screen while running the routine even though the functionality has been updated.

Thanks for the update. Certainly, someone will come along who can answer your question because it's all foreign to me. Hopefully, our dealerships will purchase the new version.

These updates were released due the fact that some of them (Functions) were not availible on the previous updates. The updates might not apply to all vehicles at this time but if it were needed then the est time to reflash/ update any module would be around an hour. Also the updates that you cannot make heads or tails are updates to allow you to continue further/ newer updates.
