Stop your vehicle in a flat area, apply parking brake and turn engine off.
Restart engine.
Press VDC button and hold until disabled.Do not take finger off the button.
The light will go yellow, green and it will turn off.
Within 5 seconds of of VDC light turning off, release the button.
Within 2 seconds of releasing button, press the VDC button again and and a hill assist light will illuminate on the dash.
Turn off engine.
Restart engine.
I'm going to try this tomorrow... I have an 08 STI though and seems people aren't having any luck...

If you figure out how to disable on 08s please let us know. I can't stand it. I've driven standard cars my whole life, and it's more of a pain than of any use. I wouldn't mind the feature if I could disable it, but always on is lame.
