When attempting to update or replace the Information Master Control Module (IMC) or the Infotainment Slave Control Module (ISC) using Pathfinder v225, it may be noticed that the application aborts, with a displayed error message stating “Updating IMC: Updating of ECU IMC X351_2016_00_V7 is not possible because required flash files (LX73-19C204-AA/LX73-19C204-ADA) were not found; or “Updating of ECU IMC X351_2016_00_V7 is not possible because required flash files (LX73-11E013-AA/LX73-11E013-ADA) were not found.”
There are files required for the IMC or ISC update process that have not been included in the v225 release of Pathfinder.
