Default Open Source Help (Can't read Rom)

I am having a hard time trying to read my USDM 2002 WRX (A/T) ROM. I have looked and can not find a post that has a shared solution (lol). I am using a Tactrix 2.0, ECUflash 1.44, also tried 1.38. windows 7 laptop plugged into an extension cord and not to the car.

Green connectors are plugged in on both driver and passenger sides of the car, Flash block Jumper. Car does go into test mode (cel flash, fan, fuel pump, etc) but when i start the read i get this:

[18:47:59.415] J2534 API Version: 04.04
[18:47:59.415] J2534 DLL Version: 1.01.4341 Aug 8 2014 00:48:17
[18:47:59.415] Device Firmware Version: 1.15.4363
[18:47:59.415] Device Serial Number: TA*yzElr
[18:48:02.781] denso02_bootloader_cmd_start
[18:48:04.004] denso02_bootloader_cmd_start
[18:48:05.230] denso02_bootloader_cmd_start
[18:48:06.453] denso02_bootloader_cmd_start
[18:48:07.676] denso02_bootloader_cmd_start
[18:48:08.084] kernel get version
[18:48:08.393] interface close
[18:48:08.397] interface close

no matter when i do it, before turning the key to on, after, at the same time, seconds before, seconds after i get that. I did try to read my '11 2.5i n/a Rom and i was able to get that no problem, I can also log no problem, RomRaider shows A4SGC00C . I also noticed the jumper was only getting about 4.0v to 4.2v so i jumped the blue wire with a constant 12v and it didnt change a thing.

Differant Tactrix (1.3s or u)?
Is my ECU locked?
Any way to check?
Should I just get a AP?
Pro Tune?
New used ECU?
Keep trying to get it to read?
Any trouble shooting i can do?

Any help is greatly appreciated. Located about an hour north of sacramento, if anyone is willing to help i'll drive, bay area, redding, stockton, if someone can help me out.

Edit: also when jumper and green plugs are connected my car still starts like normal.

Maybe you're doing it wrong. Click read and when the pop up comes up, turn the key completely off, wait half a second, then turn the key back to on. Once you've done that little cycle click okay on the pop up.

i did my first reflash today. i also have 02 wrx but its manual trans. i do not have green test connectors on the passenger side. only driver. i did the flash block and the green connects, then open ecu flash and hit read. then i test wrote, then i wrote, then i read again to make sure it was the one i wrote on. and when i turn on the ignition it does not normally do the things itll do when in test mod like cel flash fuel pump ect.
