Default think I fried my ecu...

So I flashed my ecu with ecuflash (internet getadom tune) using a friend's laptop (definitely not my first time). Some error popped up 2 or 3 times while I did it. As usual, it told me not to turn the key back from the ign on position, which I didn't. Finally it said the flash was successful, so I turned off the car, pulled the key out, disconnected the flash block and green connectors, and started the car. The car would crank but not start (tried 3 or 4 times), so I tried flashing the ecu again. No luck after that; I just kept getting errors over and over again, almost immediately after pressing "ok" for the flash. What could've happened?

Just reflash back to your previous rom image.

P.S. Did you modify the rom provided in any way?

do a hard reset (disconnect the neg terminal of battery and hit brake for 5 seconds), then try to flash again to a known good ROM
