OK heres my [non definitive] guide to modifying the ccf on your car using jaguar SDD
This was done on X260 but it's relevant on any can SDD will talk to. (<MY17)

At the time of writing 1.60 is the latest (but older versions will be OK too)
What you need;
A mongoose cable, a clone will be fine, usually around £20-30 from Ali express or similar.
If when you plug the lead into your obdii port and you get loads of errors like aeb not available abs not available etc, disconnect your lead and snip off pin 13. Let the car shutdown lock it. It will recover.
Plug in again and all should be well.
A power supply adjustable to 15v minimum 25A or better.
somthing like this PSU
A laptop with a decent spec,doesn't need to be that powerful but mimium 4GB
SDD software, usually you get this [with a cracked patch] with the lead but you can download it from https://diagnosticdelivery.jlrext.com/idscentral
You'll need a cracked version which bypasses the authentication if you don't want to pay lot £££
or you can buy offline activation for 1 year.
First you need to install the software and the drivers for your lead. You can use the official drivers from Drewtech.com
Connect your PSU up and initially set it to something around 13.5V
Once you've got the software up and running, you're presented with the following screen

183233


follow instructions in red box and click on auto vin read.
Let it do its stuff and you should see this
183234


You want sdd to see all modules but older versions of sdd will show optional modules and might have red cross in them as you've not got that module fitted. This is ok.
I've got a red cross in IPMB module as I've currenly got my rear reverse camera disconnected.
Ideally you'd want all green.

Note RED arrow top right, this is the battery voltage yellow is ok green is better. RED stop and check your connections. SDD won't let you do any programming if the voltage is too low on your battery.
Next click GREEN arrow to bring up service functions.
Let is scan all modules and as you can see all green here an communicating ok.
Now you can do things like put the parking brake into service mode, check TMPS check DEF fluid levels etc
Pretty bulletproof as you're not changing anything in the car,but if you want to add options you need to enter engineering mode by clicking the key (RED circle)
183228


this will take you to this screen;

183235

You need an activation code, there are several sites offering this some you pay some are free. I used this one;
Here
One you enter your VIN and Seed code you get a password generated. Enter that in box.
All going well you'll see the bottom bar of sdd turn orange, this confirms your into engineering mode;
183244

Now click on recomendations;
and scroll to the bottom to choose;
183237

Click run and your presented with options you can change, first off tick the box at the bottom to see all the options;
183243

I was only interested in Auto High Beam and Lane Keep Assist so that's the options I chose.
Change the option from disabled/not fitted to enable/fitted
183239


Click the green tick box and let it do its thing.
You be asked to turn the ignition on then you be prompted to download the ccf to you car. Press green tick if you're happy.
Now wait.
You car will completely shutdown as if the battery has been suddenly disconnected, it's a bit unearving but normal. You'll also see your dash needles bounce around and your indicators flash again normal.
You then see complete after 1 min. and to turn ign off then back on.
You'll then be taken through a DTC clear wizard which does just that, clears all the DTC's from the car.
So once here try out your new options.
But....
More than likely you'll need a firmware update to modules.
As the options I wanted were related to IPMA module it made sense I'd need to update the firmware on this.
To do this you go back to the initial screen and press diagnostics.
This allows you to update the firmware on modules as this is the first thing jag wants the technician to do if there's a problem.
So run diagnostics and you're presented with troubleshooting options, I chose electrical->Image processing and this then gives you extras. One of the extras is to update the module;


183240

I ran this and it downloaded firmware from JLR servers;

Great write up Gav, thanks. It might be worth adding a bit about pin 13?

Nice write up Gav.

I'm sure that will help a lot of owners.

Can you unlock TV etc too?

Gav, well done sir!
I've said it before, sharing is what this community is about and this is excellent

As soon as my car gets back from Jaguar, I'll be digging my cable out to have a go... :D

When you say unlock do you mean video in motion? Do you have a TV?

Thanks mate
Absolutely, this forum has given me lots so it's just a little payback, if it helps others, great, as there's very little published knowledge on how to use SDD.

This is my PSU.
Similar to the Amazon one that Gav linked to.




You need to adjust the voltage on the PSU (very left side of connector block) when it is connected to the car with the ignition on. With a multimeter on DC volts set the PSU voltage so that the meter reads 12.8v that way it’ll always be above the SDD required minimum programming voltage of 12.5v. SDD just won't write back to the car if the voltage is below 12.5v, this is why a PSU is a required bit of kit. You don't want the voltage dropping as you write or you could 'brick' the car.

AS Gav mentioned, doing this means the PSU is running at around 13.5v no load, so make sure it is well ventilated as it will get warm.

I put it in a box to protect it but open the lid when using it.



I’ve a spare computer fan that I’ll fit at some stage.

No, not video in motion - although I'm sure that's available at some point.

I was wondering - if the equipment is in the car already - is it just a case of ticking the box to enable it?

Or is that too simplistic a view?

Think you’d need the tuner etc. mate doubt all the h/w would be there already.
i just enabled ahb and LKA as I knew I had the h/w already (stereo cameras)

Nice one, Gav! Perhaps a "might do" when she's out of warranty.

that's a good point.
I don't have a forward facing camera ( I think) but have LKA.

how so?

Class Gav and Steve , must say I proud to have been part of the development team on this. I encouraged helped and assisted at every turn. Even when the team had given up , I drove The team to success and made them see their true potential.

That’s true and forever grateful, as a motivation speaker I was truly impressed even came across well over teams meetings, was very surprised at the versatility of a thong. Those images won’t leave me

on the jag they helped create a fox's head shape, looking at the screen from the front.
if they are there, then I'll look to get them activated.

As for the over limit warning
I only activated it to have all the boxes ticked.

the little scamp simply has an overspeed chime, set at 90...
