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.

Sorry I stand corrected. Upon closer, less knucklebrained, reflection my came with 4.7.6. It did request to upgrade straight away, and not knowing any better (before I research the whole ST Unlocker thing) I obliged.My bike came with 4.7.7 (e7000) am I out of luck?
I thought that this was so, since everything else (connection to a bike, reading settings) seemed to work as before. I have no way to check as I don't have access to supported motors.Thanks, VadII; you give me some hope! Would PCE(2) really work with 4.1.11? emax-tuning warns on their site: "It is also not possible via cable-bound PCE interface any more!"
Yes, but is it worth it to upgrade from 4.1.10 to 4.1.11? I would not recommend upgrade to latest firmware 4.1.11. The 4.1.10 is fine and it's possible to downgrade via Bluetooth if you suddenly need it. My downgrade instruction has link to 4.1.10, so it possible to upgrade from 4.0.2 to 4.1.10 after the derestriction.So we can update ep8 to 4.1.11 and use the PCE2 to change all the usual derestriction settings via STU for Windows?
NoIf so, do we need to reset settings to stock before upgrading?
Bluetooth is not stable protocol, so the upgrade may fail.Is it best to update to 4.1.11 via the PCE?
Hi Guys, I have a DU-EP800 with ver. 4.1.11 software updated, is it simple to derestrict? Little new to this stuff and keen to get my Norco Range unlocked to get more speed.Hi all, new member here.
Just wanted to share my experience using ST Unlocker. I have a Norco Fluid VLT A1 and was not happy with the 25kmh cut-off as it is right on cruising speed.
I followed instructions found on the internet to downgrade the firmware via Android, connected ST Unlocker and requested a licence (which arrived promptly) and changed the region to US. I then reconnected E-Tube on my iPhone and upgraded to the latest firmware.
I'm happy to report everything worked smoothly and I've now ridden ~70kms and from my perspective, it has transformed the bike.

I have kept the older versions of E-Tube and firmware on the Android phone (dedicated for this use) in case I ever need to revert the changes for whatever reason.
For those who notice the change in battery health, well that is another story. I purchased the bike with a 900Wh battery but discovered the LBS had installed a 540Wh battery so they had to order me a new battery which I had just installed prior to capturing the screenshot, hence the 100% (0 cycles).
Yes, with 1300mm you'll get around 42km/h of the real speedHey @vadII, I have a 2022 Orbea Rise M-ltd - so EP8RS motor. I have changed the region to US to increase max limit to 32Kph. To get it higher than that, I believe I need to reduce the wheel size to the smallest possible (on a 29 inch wheel) and that I should be able to get to 42km/h max by doing so. Is that correct?
Since the someone posted a patched ETube App for Android - the downgrade from latest firmware versions is available again. The downgrade instructions are updated.Don't install latest firmwares (4.1.11, 4.9.5, 4.7.7) if you have derestricted bike or you want to derestrict it. You can't do anything after that, even downgrade will not work
Don't worry about answering that. I worked it out (rtfm). What would the effect of using the correction field be. If I set it to -5%, would that give me a further 5% on top of that? Or would it need to go in the other direction to do that?How do you set to 1300mm? The smallest option I get is "700c" (whatever that means) which equates to 2072. I can adjust that by -5% but that's it. There's no 1300mm option.
You're right...I'm just asking as double-check, to be sure to don't make any mistake!Can you explain why connecting to a Bluetooth device (Shimano display) should violate the warranty?
I'm new to this forum and surely new to Shimano motors (I've used Giant/Yamaha), can you explain me what you mean?In any case, Shimano can say anything (without presenting any evidence, for sure) , even if you have never turned on the bike to ride on it.
