    The "service after the sale" is what will Kill Tesla. Their attitude towards customers is the same the Big Three were in the 1970's. The same attitude that have 80% of the US car market to the Japanese.

Ik was gekwetst maar blij dat ik het heb uitgeprobeerd. Neem contact met hem op voor soortgelijke problemen Whatsapp: +19378151491 VIA Instagram op @redhackpro, e-mail hackprivate8 @gmailcom

Tesla of course wants to charge me beaucoup bucks for a whole new unit but it's as simple as replacing the chip. Do you happen to know where I can buy the new one? Thank you!

    Phil is doing exactly what I've wanted to do: make a decent sized van using tesla kit. I wonder what range he think he'll get with the standard battery. My sums suggest you really want 100-120kWh to get a van useful as a camper. I shall go follow him forthwith. You can tell he's a smart guy - lots of hardware and a thinkpad running linux :-) Amazing that Tesla, a nominally smart outfit, are making such a basic embedded linux mistake by putting /var/log/syslog straight into flash.

    Why can’t someone hack to unlock supercharging

  • Got2Bespoke


    3 muaj më parë

    Because most people have to pay for supercharging and Tesla controls that? It’s not like other public chargers where you can swipe a card, or something like that. If other charging stations come out that can charge nearly as fast (or as fast) and are available to the rest of the EV market, perhaps someone will do it. Or someone may have already done it, but again, pointless with a supercharger if Tesla has blacklisted that car as they control everything to do with the SC’s.

    Rich, I just want to say that before I started watching your videos I was one of those idiots that thought Tesla was the answer to the question: "What does the future look like?" I was very close to getting a Model X without realizing that when you "buy" a Tesla you're not actually "buying" anything. You're paying Tesla to drive THEIR car around until THEY decide they don't want you to drive it or charge it anymore, but then they won't give you anything back for your money. THANK YOU!! It's amazing how Tesla, being such a huge company and started by someone who without a doubt is a genius, doesn't realize that they are the "Apple" of car companies (who are in themselves the "Sears" and "Blockbuster" of companies). And if they think I'm paying them a compliment by calling them the "Apple" of car companies...look into the history of the other two and get back to me. The one thing those companies had in common is that they were all impossibly dominant in their markets and eras and there was no challenging them, until someone did. Then all the people they pissed off over time came out of the woodwork and DESTROYED them. You have saved many people a lot of money and time and frustration. I can't become a patron right now, but I can at least subscribe and watch your ads. I'm no longer one of those Tesla-starry-eyed idiots any more...now I'm just a plain idiot. So thank you....I think.

    These cars not back on the road is very wasteful. There will always be people buying these vehicles whether they can technically afford them or not. Should never have to part out a perfectly good vehicle that just needs parts and back on the road like a vehicle never damaged. Never know the difference. Very wasteful. This if from my repair shop where we do repairable salvage vehicles. WE NEED PARTS PARTS PARTS. Not everyone lives like everyone else with an open checkbook at a dealer that are also few and far between. I'll never forget the mitsubishi i had that i could not do a pcm replacement and one dealer within 500 miles of me and not to mention mainly serviced multiple brands and not any one of them brands very good.

    So, this is what worries me about Tesla. They do some brilliant stuff but then they go and make some real rookie mistake. The Linux logging (aka 'syslog') problem is an example. To put this in context embedded Linux (i.e. Linux that is run on a computer that does not have a traditional display and disk drive) is widely used. For instance the router connecting home computers / entertainment systems to the internet will, invariably, be using embedded Linux. And all embedded Linux (and other) systems have the problem of avoiding writing logs, etc, to eMMC chips. So, Tesla's problem is not new. The boiler plate method of avoiding the writes is to have a so called 'union' file system mounted as the root which is backed by the eMMC as a read only file system and a 'RAM disk' as the read / write file system. It is a worry that Tesla have not implemented such a simple archetecture as this.

    The reason the chip is being burnt out is that they’re feeding every little morsel of data to their AI. That’s how Elon plans to ultimately get to full autonomous driving, amongst other things. Machine Deep Learning. The true value of the Tesla fleet is in the real world R&D feedback that feeds the Machine. Who cares about establishing a viable ecosystem for your product when that’s not anywhere near the actual goal.

    The Thing with the MCU, I had that. And the same Questions of why Tesla do that Logging on non detouchable Cip and why they are do so much logging is also my Question. They should fix this Issue. If they are not, maybe the Aftermarket should sell a Fix. This is Expensible Issue, that are Easily Fixable.
