Theoretically it is possible, but what will you do if KESS will stop in writing and will block ECU?It wouldn't be the first time when MED17.2 do that.I recommend to read in boot mode full read,to have a backup and after that to try to write by OBD.In case of fail you have full backup.It is risky to try to write by OBD this ECU without full backup.

Minis never die.They just get faster
If you speed up on curves instead of slowing down you probably own a MINI Cooper.
