Part 2 :
This is a customer feedback.
(How to solve kess v2 ECU " Protocol not compatible with version FW"  & The obd connector is too big ,how to do & where to downoad ksuit 2.28?)
I did buy SE87-C, did get it today. Thanks for fast delivery!
1. I have try to read a audi 2,0tdi 2007 BRD engine. Ecu: Siemens PPD1.3 I get a message, Protocol not compatible with version FW.
I have test software version 2.06-2.22 same problem.
kess-v2--issue -2
2. And the obd connector is also to big, i can send you a picture of the difference to a "normal one".
I had to remove the obd connector of the car so i could connect, even when i did that i had to force it very hard to fit. Seems like the 2 plastic separators in the middle are to thick to.

3.I saw on you site that is possible to run ksuite 2.28, do you have any download link for the newer ksuite?

I have solved the protocol error myself.
Here is how: I installed the ksuite 2.06 full, then copy the ksuite 2.08 who is in the token reset folder that has the firmware's in update folder into my install directory. (like you do in the video for the ksuite 2.08)
Just used the one who is in the token reset folder on cd instead.
OBD connector is way to big , look attached picture.

kess v2 4.030 tokens programming error solution

For this problem, it is caused by the patch file. Your PC does not have some system patch file. To solve this, you can install our 2014.2 TCSCDP software first. Then follow the video to program the tokens again. Then will solve the problem.

Part 5:(NOTE: This is a cutomer solution,Just put it here for sharing,please try and responsible for what you will do)
I am having problems with my bootloader adapter for Kess v2. Kess is reworked to 4.036 and works with OBD cable. I tried to use bootloader adapter and cable, but failed to read any ecu. I tried to connect EDC17CP14 (on the bench and without boot pin- obd mode on the bench), no luck with Kess (but my reworked Galletto worked with similar wiring ID + read OK).
I already checked the wiring in the cable connector- fixed some wires, but still nothing.
I think there may be something wrong in the bootloader unit.
4 steps to solve bootloader adapter problems:
Step 1- fixed the wiring
i fixed the wiring in the connector that goes into the bootloader module like in the picture (Ktag has the same) 4 wires were wrong in my connector.
Step 2- resoldered the mosfet
And I resoldered the mosfet (in the middle of the module- near the middle LED).
Step 3- read ECU without opening
I then got the power to the ecu. But it didnt read it, probably because I didn’t connect the boot pin (that needs to be soldered on the ecu pcb). I tried to read it without opening, because I borrowed the ecu.
Step 4- opened the ECU to read
So I finally got the time to test my bootloader module with all wiring (boot cable attached). Once I opened the ECU (edc17cp14) and connected the boot pin, I was able to succesfully Id and read the ECU. 
Worked like a charm!
The main problem was the soldering of the mosfet transistor in the middle of bootloader pcb, and I remowed the extra wire that was on the other side of the pcb.
