    As I understand it, you can't get a Mini VCI actually made by XHorse any more. The counterfeiters drove them right out of making their own product. Maybe I'm wrong; might be hard to be sure at this point.

    On the bright side, no matter what counterfeit XHorse Mini VCI you buy, it will say it's from XHorse.

    All very well, just don't assume when you buy something that says it's a Mini VCI from XHorse, that it's a Mini VCI from XHorse. Counterfeiting is funny that way.

    They'll all still work more or less. But as far as I know, the counterfeits blew the actual XHorse firm out of the market, and whatever you find for sale in 2019, whether it says XHorse or not, probably isn't. If someone has really verifiable information otherwise, please share.

    I know this is really late and i didn't re read the old posts.

    A used fob can only be reused when you re seed the immo with a new key (seed). When it's been reseeded, you can at that time and only that time take 2 used key fobs and reset them to your new seed.

    This is the only time that s used key can be re used. They must be the first 2 keys set up and it can only be done right then.

    Thank you for your response. I am still trying to figure out how to access the smart key function with vxdiag and mini vci which are both basic and can only help you really just read live time functions. To gain access to smart key I need the k line which I am hearing I can only get with tactrix hook up. I am in the process of buying the tactrix to further reseed my used sks keys for a 2008 Prius.

    I have a vxdiag obd2 unit and the knockoff xhorse Crap we get all over eBay and use both regular to do reseed/reprogram used fobs for customers etc.

    Is there any way you can message me the process to reseed? I am very familiar with techstream I am just not sure how to reseed these keys with the vxdiag and cheap knockoff mini horse whatever lol.
