Hi,
The link above from 2019 is no longer valid. I'm trying to update my Xtool VAG401 and need this update. Can anyone post a current link or have info on how to upgrade my reader? I've requested this information directly to XTOOL but haven't heard back yet. Tks

How to update the software:

1) Plug the included USB cable into the Vag401. Plug the other end into a powered USB receptacle (computer or phone/tablet charger)
2) Scroll down until you see the "About" header on the device, hit enter.
2a) You will see the serial number (also on back of device) and password. Write both of these down as you'll need them for the next step.
2b) Unplug the USB cable from the powered USB receptacle (leave it plugged into the Vag401, you'll need it at a later step)
3) On the bottom (not back) of the Vag401, there will be a sd card. Remove it by pushing in on it slightly and remove the card.
3a) The card will need to be inserted into the USB drive adapter that came with the Vag401. It only goes in one way, so don't force it.
4) Plug USB drive adapter into an available USB port of your computer
4a) Important: Backup your sd card. Navigate to your sd card, copy all items; make a folder in your computer and paste the files there.
5) Visit Xtooltech . com Use the pull down menu to select your preferred language
6) Scroll to the bottom of the page. The 2nd from the left square (a bit pinkish/red in color) will be labeled "Update Tool". Click it and install.
7) Once installed, For the server pull down menu, select "Other areas" if not already done so.
7a) Optional, but recommend that you click on the "help" icon, then select "settings". Under "Misc" you can tick the box next to "Upgrade
sd card directly" then click "OK". I chose this option so that I would not have to go through the unzipping files process.
8) For the Username/SN area, input the serial number obtained from the about header earlier.
9) For the Password area, input the password obtained from the about header earlier.
9a) Optional, but recommend that you tick the "remember me" box (located below and to the right of Password area)
10) Click on "Login"
11) You will be automatically taken to a software list. Currently there are two available, tick the box next to both. Click on "Upgrade"
12) After upgrade is complete, go to your system tray and select the USB icon; click it and select the memory card to "eject".
12a) Remove USB drive adapter from your computer
13) Remove sd card from USB drive adapter and reinsert into bottom of the Vag401. It only goes in one way, so don't force it.
14) On the Vag401, plug the other end of the USB cable into a powered USB receptacle (computer or phone/tablet charger)
15) On the Vag401 menu, select "Diagnostic" and hit enter. The downloaded bin files will install. Once completed, remove USB cable.
