• Warning!!

    Riding a tuned or deristricted EMTB is not a trivial offence and can have serious legal consequences. Also, many manufacturers can detect the use of a tuning device or deristricting method and may decline a repair under warranty if it was modified from the intended original specification. Deristricting EMTB's can also add increased loads for motors and batteries. Riding above the local law limit may reclassify the bike as a low-powered bike, requiring insurance, registration and a number plate.

    Be aware of your local country laws. Many laws prohibit use of modified EMTB's. It is your responsibility to check local laws. Ignoring it, has potential implications to trail access, and risk of prosecution in the event of an accident.

Looking at a "chip" that can be used with shimanos latest v4.07 software, as I am having difficulty in downgrading using steps unlocked.

downgrade is not difficult ??‍♂️I had never any issues. Android and iOS no problem...
I've been trying to follow the steps unlocked tutorial, but not having any luck. Can't see a .dat file that I am supposed to copy over from PC to phone!!!

Look at stepsunlocker.com ...You can download for win and Android files....You can go with your phone online to stepsunlocker and download direct to your phone....you need E-TUBE app to downgrade. Start E-TUBE and go out....look in your phone where is the Firmware folder and replace the Firmware dat. Now you must start E-TUBE without internet and update...read at stepsunlocker it’s not very complicated... Hope I can help a little bit and sorry for my English..
