hey everyone just wanted to let you all know i have successfuly read rom image from an 06 wrx using ecuflash version 1.28 and vag-com cable

here is my setup i used

ecuflash version1.28
vag-com cable and drivers
romraider ecuedit
windows 7 starter

first thing i did was install the FTDI drivers for the vag-com cable

installed vag-com program

i assigned the virtual serial port to com2

opened vag-com program and with cable plugged into vehicle

tested cable interface Note: if you have issues with getting a successful interface connections install drivers manually there are 2 drivers that need to be installed i have a pdf that gives you step by step directions by this route

once a successful interface connection is made i installed ecuflash v1.28 Note: do not install openport drivers, they will conflict with the FTDI drivers, just hit cancel

on 06wrx connect test mode connector (green connector under dash)

turn car to run position

plug in vag-com cable to car and computer

run ecuflash
select com2
you should then be able to read the rom image from ecu
be sure not to open or close any doors of the vehicle as this will interupt the process and it will fail to read

after its finished reading save the hex file but be sure to put ".hex" after whatever you name it or you wont be able to open it

and thats it i havent tried flashing it yet that is my next step

if anyone wants the pdf install instructions pm me and ill message it to you any other questions on my setup feel free to ask

happy tuning!!
