If those buttons are grayed out in EcuFlash, then EcuFlash isn't detecting the Openport. That problem is independent of the OBD2 port. You could be sitting inside your house far from the car with Openport only connected to the laptop via USB and you should see those buttons active.

What does it say in the lower right hand corner of EcuFlash? It should say "Openport 2.0 USB" but if it says "no vehicle interface" then you need to work on that. It could be an issue with the install of the Windows device driver or could be even simpler, a bad USB cable. If you have another mini-USB cable handy, try that first as it only takes a few seconds. If you need help troubleshooting the Windows device driver, just make sure you're using the current version of EcuFlash and if you are, then send me an email to support at tactrix . com

By the way, Java is needed by RomRaider but EcuFlash doesn't use it at all.

I'm just finishing up a build on an OBXT. I have a Tactrix open port 2.0. Can anyone refer some E tuners? I have been poking around and it seems everyone wants a COBB. I would like to avoid buying one if I can.

I'm a little hesitant to weigh in here as there are just so many tuners to choose from but Cameron Dawes is a popular one that does e-tunes for what seems to be a really reasonable rate. camtuning.com

Thanks Mike. Im all set now and have been experimenting with the tables. I have been previously tuned my Wingz in AZ when I owned an Evo8 and will probably stick with him or the folks over at STM tuned. Thanks again for your help!

Gonna bump this up, because I just had the same issue.

You need to go in the device manager and update the driver for the OP2.0. Windows assigns it as a "Vehicle Pass Through" and ECUFlash won't work with it.
You need to update the driver with the FTDIBUS driver in the ECUFlash folder. Once I did this, it was assigned as a comm port, and immediately worked.

Hi guys, have a question about the cable. To read/write ecu roms is it mandatory to use tactrix openport or any other obd cable will do the job?

I managed with a $10 Vag-Com cable off eBay. Now I have the OP2.0.

It's a small price to pay, to ensure you actually get something that works right out of the box.

Thanks Black94Snake
The fact is that this flashing is a one off episode, i've not the knowledge for build my custom rom but have received one from a friend and want to try without going to the tuner, given that there are no code issues. But for 160$ or so i think it's better to go for the safety of a tuner

If you have no intentions to use the device on a regular basis, go see a tuner.

Default Bad connection, or bad o2 sensor

First time trying to log with Openport 2.0

appears to connect, but stops at densoO2_bootloader_cmd_start
Tries 5 times, then,
kernal get version
followed by,
interface close
interface close.

I have other reasons to suspect the O2 sensor is bad, is that the issue, is the connection bad, or am I doing it wrong?
