Ford updates & Spartan Tunes

Ok, so i had 2 return my truck back 2 stock so i could run it to the dealership for some repairs. They gave my truck the latest updates from ford, will this cause any problems when i reload the spartan tunes? Do i need to save my stock file again?

Your strategies are going to be different, so the tuner may not load at all. You may need to give the office a call tomorrow (if it doesn't load) so we can get you a new license.

so jeff,whats the compatability factor with sparton and the new ford flash...how are you going to work around it.....and will you build a tuner for late buyers of sparton who have had the flash?.....or are us late comers s.o.l.? bet there are folks like me that wanted to put on a few more miles before being tuned but are def. future customers.

Was no problem, the DD recognized that my stock file had changed & asked if i would like to save it, so i did. Once it erased the module & tried 2 load the tune file, it said the file was invalid. Called spartan, 2 seconds later i had tec support thay had me unplug the DD & try again. Second time it loaded with no troubles!
