Does this procedure override "fixed" TCM mapping?

Just bumped into this video...

Where he's selecting the Cayenne mapping. Is this a prefix solution? Does this over ride the the "fixed" TCM mapping and add back in engine braking?

Thx.

It does not override the "fixed" programming. All it does is adjust some of the transmission characteristics. The only way is to reflash it.

How are most reflashes getting done. Iíve Iíll seen one forum member claiming todo along with ECU but maybe currently not doing them.

He's not doing the ECU..... the TCM is still happening as long as people are returning his "loaners" and he doesn't have any bench hardware (flashing hardware) filled with his kid's drinks.

.... at least from what I recall....
