How to get cheap GM GDS2 for eternity.

Global Diagnostic System 2 aka GDS2. 
GDS2 is GM's motor vehicle diagnostic software used by auto mechanics to perform diagnostics, including reading fault codes, resetting electronic modules configurations and various other configurations.
In order to have access to GDS2, one has to subscribe.
In this tutorial, I'll demonstrate how to pay once then have GDS2 access for eternity.
GDS2 uses two security measures. 

1. A hardware ID file, name "swkV3"

2. A system licence file.

This tutorial circumvents the system licence file. That's why one needs to purchase a GM subscription in order to obtain the hardware ID file.

 

Step 1
Purchase a GDS2 subscription for the shortest/cheapest length
For USA cars, use ACDelco.Screenshot 2021-09-29 at 7.54.48 pm.jpg
For European use ServiceBox

 

Step 2
Install and run GDS2 on all the PC you intend to use the GDS diagnostic software.

 

Step 3
Navigate to C:\ProgramData\GM\TIS2WebProxy\.dls\.lreg 
From that folder, delete the licence file that's there and replace it with the attached infiniteLease.dat file.

The infiniteLease.dat file also works with the new Techline GDS2.

 

Step 4 
Restart the GDS2 application. The Days remaining until lease expires should change to infinite.

You can also search around for a VM version of techline and use GDs2 offline, and use the same patched lease to extend the trial period to millions of days!! Like I did, for 100% free. However it needs to be a 64x machine, that can support virtual mode 64x. If only we could find offline sps programming.

Will the lease patch get overwritten if you login to techline connect (not standalone mode)? Just confirming how the process works.

 

 

Yes Techline overwrites some files. Just keep a copy of the lease file in a folder on your PC and when Techline overwrites it, copy and past the lease file back to the location.

 

Techline uses the same lease file, but Techline store the lease file in a different location.

check these Techline location as I don't fully remember the Techline lease file location.

" C:\ProgramData\GM\TLC\TIS2WebProxy\.dls\.lreg"

"C:\ProgramData\GM\TLC\TIS2WebProxy\.dls\.TUM\.lreg"

Tried figuring this out today but mine looks different.  Not sure what file I'm supposed to replace with the infinitelease.dat file as there is no *.dat file in any of the folders suggested.

 

Any ideas?
