Well, all i want is the new maps F8 files associated with my 19205 firmware..For me it happened almost immediately after supplying a few fellow Kuga owners with my xml files, must've been spring last year ? I think. And it kept happening again and again, so I'm fairly certain that it was the same culprit since 2018 until today. And yes, the xml file will upload if you just correct the filename, however this is wrong, because if you don't alter the file contents as well, it will cause the donor Kuga to "lose" its SYNC.
I am still considering, as i might be missing something between 18026 -> 19205, and whether this can ruin my radio or more, one thing is the simple IDS check, if thats what it is for the dealer.
