Question Reflash Question???

Will disconnecting the battery for a full day remove an ECU reflash? and put me back to original?

There's no "original". When you reflash the ecu it is permanent until you reflash again. You could pull the ecu out of the car and put it in your closet for a month and the flash would remain. This is assuming you are talking about reflash like that from Ecutek, Cobb (base map) or Ecuflash (open source).

in short words, disconnecting the battery will make the current flash on your ecu revert back to its defaults, it basicly loses all of its learning it has done.

Your ecu was flashed, so your new map will be stored in your ECU. So disconnecting your battery has no effect on that.
Look at it as your home PC. When you plug out you rPC, all yoiu files are ok whna you plug it back it.
It works the same way.
