MB Star DAS and Vediamo program Smart 450 SAM unit

I’ve just got Vediamo V4 up and running for a Smart 450 Cabrio with a dead SAM unit, to virginize (Or at least reset) a 2nd hand SAM unit and program it in.
However, vediamo no make virgin this unit for smart
And i was told to make virgin by eeprom dump and make initial startup with Xentry/DAS, and also put the Sam and start the car ..but to change the vin only EPROM and km …
I have access to a eeprom reader so can do that with a SAM but I’m struggling to find a virgin SAM backup. (have found the one for the MEG at the back but not one for the SAM)

But i found it would not help because by coding with Benz diagnostic tool i have to enter the SCN Coding Chucksum. Only official smart service can get this number. A smart owner said it worked only by coding the meg and dssh to the 2nd used sam unit. So yes, only a open DAS and the right vin.

Password may be required in official dealer for matching a new key to a control sam used

So i use the non password fix for DAS to get it, I’m sure the SAM unit will take any 3 button key you throw at it (unless it was a 1 button early MCC)

Ps. The fix from Obd2tool.com.

Not for coding a new set of blank keys into SAM, just go into
SAM Unit –> Adaptations –> Bottom of the list should be Special Function: Reprogram keys if no keys available

It does require a password unless you have the No Password fix, I did this the other day on DAS 04.2014 with 2 new keys (No originals)

The fix bypasses the password requirement (Just press F2 twice)

(Best) MB SD Connect C4 V2012.11 for offline programming

The offline programming has been switched off on DAS beginning from OBD2TOOL. So now when you want to program a control unit for whatever reason you will need to go online to after sales platform which of course will require a dealer login and a password and only then you will be allowed to program the control unit. And this will be possible only if your control unit contains the software version older than the software version available. If the software inside the control unit is the already latest one and you still need to program it you will get a message saying that “No newer software was found”. (Soon there will be a solution how to avoid this message).

Here, we will tell you the offline-programming version.
The best version

The best version for offline programming—Star diagnostic software 2012.11 for Benz diagnostic tool SD C4&DELL D630 + setting up offline mode in old DAS software

This is the one highly recommend although the version is kind of old.

The package V2012.11 MB Star C4 with DELL D630 laptop and preinstalled software is very convenient for users who do not have DELL D630 laptop or do not want to install software. Besides, you need to buy additional setting up offline mode in old DAS software.
But you need set up WIFI and Lan cable connection by yourself if you want to do online programming. This package also includes the offline programming activation software.

V2015.05 or the latest software for online programming:
NOTE: if you want to do online programming, you need the new software v2015.05 or the latest software. Our v2012.11 only support offline programming. If you want to do both online and offline programming, you are advised to have both v2012.11 software and v2015.05 or the latest software.
