Toyota TIS cable: GENUINE mini vci fw 2.0.4 vs COPY mini vci fw 1.4.1

Any difference between original and clone Toyota TIS Techstream cable?

MINI VCI fw v2.0.4 and fw v1.4.1 differs in PCB design, protocol, and some functions.
if you would want to reset immo, or make customization to cars, need at least 2.0.4 FW
with 2.0.4 FW there is change in PCB, as it support VPW, and has extra security chip
on the other hand, all these simple clones with 1.4.1 FW support only CAN and K line
VPW protocol is unsupported in 1.4.1 FW, and there is no parts for it on PCB


In short, Xhorse-made Toyota mini vci v2.0.4 supports VPW protocol and IMMO RESET, customization, but copy mini vci cannot perform the functions.
