Ugh what am I doing wrong? inTune 1000 DCX...

Hi guys
So I am completely new to this so forgive me if I don't know everything..

I just received my Diablosport inTune I-1000 DCX for my 2011 3.6L.

I followed the Quick Start guide... which turns out isn't so quick after all. Plugged it into my laptop, it "auto updated".. I think? All that happened was some loading screen on the device... so I unplugged it and headed to my car... tried to write a tune..got the message "PCM calibration for (my VIN #) may be out of date and need an update" or something like that. So i unplugged and headed back to my laptop and this is where I am left in the dust...

First of all, I had NO idea I had to download any programs or drivers or whatever. This isn't listed anywhere. I thought I could just plug-in and throw on a canned tune or whatnot. So I went on the Diablosport website under DOWNLOADS and was confused from there. So I just started clicking.. I was able to download the DS software- but it is only for Trinity? Opened that up and it won't even connect to my device.... Nothing.

So I see the (Trinity?) drivers download. Tried this 10x.. fails every time on the last step..(stage 2 or whatever).

ALSO I was under the impression that the tunes were already pre-loaded, but now I am reading that I have to put the tunes on myself? I don't even know how to do this or where to find my car's tune.

I am SO confused :'( This is unfamiliar territory to me to say the least....

Lol this was me a few days ago, I have the trinity. Hope this helps, it did for me

1. Power up the tool and select Options Change Vehicle Type, and put it into Demo mode again. Let it reset itself and go back to the main menu.
2. In demo mode, go under the Performance menu, and select ‘Original Backup’ as the tune to install. The tool will go through the process of “installing” a stock tune, and reset itself as if it’s connected to a car. If it was not married in Demo, it will tell you there is nothing to restore—skip to step 4.
3. Once it notifies you that the original backup has been installed, reboot the tool to put it on the main menu
4. Open DS Downloader program.
5. Once it connects to the unmarried Trinity, the DS Downloader will now be able to update the tool fully to the latest revision, and should do so automatically.
6. Once the update process is completed, the Trinity will display the main menu again. Select Options Change Vehicle Type (the first time you do this, enter a 2010 V6 car instead of a 2012) again, and enter your vehicle’s information. That will activate the appropriate firmware file for your vehicle, and you can then bring it to the vehicle.

NOTE: Since you have a Chrysler gas vehicle, if you get a message that reads "This vehicle needs an update, Download here: DCX ", DON'T PANIC, this is because the tool wants to update the vehicle’s stock calibration file, not because the tool itself needs an update. If you get that message:

1. Bring the tool back to the PC, and plug it in
2. Open the DS Downloader program and let it connect
3. The DS Downloader program will give you a prompt that it wants to download a Calibration Update to the tool
4. Follow the prompt, and let it complete the process
5. Bring the tool back to the vehicle, and select the Performance menu to load the Calibration Update to the vehicle’s PCM
6. When the Calibration Update is finished, you can then select a tune and write it to the vehicle

I dont have windows 8 but i do know on the diablo site i have seen a specific "click here if ur using windows 8". Otherwise I did exactly what sandshar did about 2 days before him!! Dont worry shoot....we will all get thru this together. I had difficulties the first day but ince u go thru it and you say oiooh thats how it goes its pretty easy. My only real advice however is if you want this on by the weekend call diablo tomorrow in regular business hours because there is no tech support on weekends. Im a complete noob to this whole tuning too....dont know bout sandshar.

I think we all been here... I know exactly how some of you guys feel. It takes some playing to get used to how it all comes together and works.
If anything is wrong with the tool DS will make it right. mine had a bad connector and they handled it, pronto. Just never give up, ever....
