Here are screen shots of what I am getting on my Android after I do the following steps.

1. Connect ECU cable to my bike and to my phone.
2. Switch bike ignition and start button to ON.
3. Open Tune Ecu app on phone.
4. Select CONNECT on app.

As soon as I select CONNECT the phone asks for permission to connect to Bluetooth.
There are screen shots of what it is showing once I say YES to allowing it to connect to Bluetooth. After I select one or the other choices that is is giving me to connect via Bluetooth (see the screen shot that shows the two that says"Null..." I get the second screen where the CONNECT and SELECT button options under "ECU" are now grayed out and it won't let me do anything, and there is no action on the app. I essentially have to close down the app and turn off Bluetooth to get the app to reset.

If you're trying to connect via bluetooth you don't need the cable, you need a bluetooth adapter for the ECU. I'll assume you're using one and suggest disconnecting the obdII cable.

If you don't have an adapter and you do in fact have an FTDI obdII cable, you shouldn't need a bluetooth adapter so when it prompts to connect via bluetooth say no. Where did you get your cable from and are you positive it's the FTDI chipset? Some obdII cables have a plastic casing that can be screwed off; if yours does you can open it and check the chip if you're unsure. I would be willing to bet that's the problem.

No I don't have the Bluetooth transmitter plug in, I have the actual cable like this. These are the guys I bought it from.

OK that's the right cable. So ditch the bluetooth route for now. When it asks to connect via bluetooth say no.

Are you pulling the headlamp fuse?

Here's what I do:
1. Pull headlamp fuse
2. Connect cable
3. Turn ignition on
4. Open TuneECU
5. Click connect

I believe opening TuneECU should be the last thing you do. Try that and let us know what feedback you get from the app and/or OS.

Yes I'm doing exactly like you outline above, without pulling headlight fuse. I tried denying it Bluetooth and when I do that it simply goes straight to the screen with no numbers or lights flashing or anything, no action at all. I'm stumped and frustrated. I've emailed the company I bought the cable from and they have not replied.
