you don't need definitions to read a ROM. You will need them to tune or flash with Ecuflash, however. The current Ecuflash defintions are not compatible with that version of Ecuflash (as far as tuning is concerned). I suggest you do not use the old defs that come with 1.29a (for tuning) as they are way outdated, however, they are fine for flashing (assuming your ROM is supported) and you can use RomRaider to tune with (or you can update to the latest defs for Ecuflash as long as you do not tune with them - you'll see funky values in some of the tables because 1.29a is not compatible with the newer defs).

actually i pulled ROM and opened it with RomRaider and everything worked perfectly except one thing. I managed to connect to my car using Learning View and EcuFlash but not with RomRaider. I'll try different PC with Win Xp rather than Vista in order to make some logs

BTW is it possible (hipoteticly) to pull ROM from STi 05 (protuned on the same setup) and flash STi 04 with that ROM ? Do i have to make any changes to it?

do not flash a 05 STi image to an 04 STi ECU, unless you want a brick for a ECU.

Flashing someone else's protune onto your car is called stealing. Man up and pay for your own protune. The OS tools were not designed so people could go around copying protunes. And just because a protune works well on one car, doesn't mean it will on another, even with the identical mods. For example, your car may be more knock-prone, due to different engine tolerances, different local gas quality, unknown mechanical issues, unknown maintenance issues, etc.
