Jet’s new iCLONE machine is designed to program most existing transponder systems while having the ability to be upgraded as new electronics evolve. Jet Hardware literature explains that the iCLONE was developed “to cater for future developments with ever expanding technology of transponders...

Operating keys containing the Texas Instruments 4C fixed code transponder can be programmed in the same manner. Once the operating key has been read, the screen will display the transponder choices that can be programmed (example: Jet C1 or Jet SCH1). Assemble the required Jet key blade, transponder and key head together and insert the 2-part key into the reading/writing area. Follow the LED instructions for completing transponder programming. “Successful” will be displayed when the transponder has been copied.
Vehicles using the Philips Crypto transponders require a Jet pre-coded 99 transponder chip. Align the indicator at ‘COPY’ on the LED screen. Place the original key into the reading area, then press the ‘next’ button on the keypad. Remove the operating key and press the ‘next’ button. Insert the correct transponder key into the reading/writing area and press the ‘next’ button. In a few moments the LED screen will display “successful”.
Vehicles using Philips ID46 Crypto 2 transponders require using the PC software and require an Internet connection when cloning. Philips ID46 transponders are most notably used in various Mitsubishi, Honda, Hyundai plus some Chrysler and Jeep models.
Begin by selecting the “Main Menu” tab on the computer screen. Place the original key in the reading area and click “READ”. Remove the original key and insert a Jet C3 transponder into the reading area, then click “WRITE”. Next click “CONNECT”. Both the “READ” and “WRITE” buttons will become active. Insert the original key into the reading area and click “READ”. Insert the Jet C3 transponder into the reading area and click “WRITE”. The computer screen will display “Success Go to Car”.
A required “sniffing” procedure must be correctly followed. Tape the programmed Jet C3 transponder to the head of the original key. Insert the original key containing the taped C3 into the ignition cylinder and turn the ignition “ON” for 5 seconds. Turn the ignition “OFF” and remove the key from the ignition. Within 5 seconds of each cycle, repeat the “ON”/”OFF” procedure a total of 5 times. If the sniffing procedure is not followed exactly, the vehicle ECU may become locked. In that case, the vehicle battery must be disconnected for 20 minutes in order to unlock the ECU.
The next step is to return to the iCLONE and click “CONNECT”. Insert the ‘sniffed” Jet C3 transponder into the reading area and click “READ”. Next, keep the Jet C3 transponder in the reading area and click “WRITE”. The status bar on the computer screen will display “Success” when the programming is completed. Finally, insert the original key into the reading area and click “WRITE”. Next, insert the “sniffed” Jet C3 into the reading area of the iCLONE and click “WRITE”. When finished correctly, “SUCCESS” will again be displayed on the screen.
Vehicles using Texas Instruments encrypted transponders also require using the PC software and an Internet connection when cloning. These TI transponders can be cloned using either Jet C2 or jet SCH-3/4 transponder heads. Begin by inserting the original key into the reading area and click ‘READ’. Transponder information will then be displayed. Two options will be displayed for either the Jet C2 or SCH-3/4 transponders.
When the using the Jet C2 transponder, place the C2 chip into the reading area and click the ‘WRITE’ button. The status bar will indicate when the copy procedure was successful.
When using the Jet SCH-3/4 transponder, an Internet connection is required. Several minutes may be required for Internet calculations to be completed. When the calculations are completed, instructions will be displayed to insert the SCH-3/4 key into the reading area. Then click ‘WRITE’. The status bar will indicate when the copy procedure was successful.
Important: At this time, the Texas Instruments 80-bit encrypted transponder cannot be cloned.
In addition to cloning the complete line of Jet transponder chips, Jet Hardware reports that JMA chips and Bianchi TK24/TK40 chips can be cloned with the iCLONE machine. Ilco/Silca electronic keys cannot be cloned using the standard configured iCLONE.
SPECIAL FUNCTIONS: Pin code generation, 48 unlock, random code generation, crypto generation and blank ID46 generation add to the usefulness of the Jet iCLONE. Some special functions may require additional hardware.
Transponder keys “less chip” can be a practical way to replace transponder-equipped keys that are worn or broken.
This upgrade enables the Smart-Clone to clone specific automotive cryptographic transponders from Chrysler, Ford, Kia, Lexus, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru and Toyota.
