Coding launch control on 2012 F20 using Bimmercode

Has anyone successfully done this?

my car is a 2012 F20 1 series, I have coded LC and a few other small things using Bimmercode but nothing actually worked even though the App said successful - does anyone know how to get around it?

thanks in advance !

Doesn't Bimmercode say: "Please note that some of the listed options may not be available or do not work depending on the software and configuration of your car."? You can query an official BMW service about the latest/last software update for your car (and/or whether the features you want are applicable to your car at all).

In order to directly code and activate that feature, you need to have Sports Automatic Transmisson (2TB) option on your car.
If you have regular (205) auto-transmission, it is still possible but you must be willing to go the extra mile. First you have to flash/code your transmission ecu with sports automatic transmisson software, then you can have launch control.
