I didn't get a notification of a reply either. That's odd. I'll try to see if I can figure this out tomorrow for you. Yes, I do recall us swapping a support email last week.

My 05 ECU is unbricked (albeit not worth much atm) and my 04 is unCobbed, I'm super grateful! After 7 years this thread still provides.

Yeah but I don't think that the 04 is "locked"... The 04 didn't have an emobilizer and the 05 does, so not sure on compatibility.

Yeah the 04 was locked. I couldn't even connect to it via ecuflash, it would reject it every time. I can ID it now and I flashed my speed density map. The car is running on the 04 as we speak. With the 04 not having the immobilizer it bypasses it in the newer models as long as you rewire the harness per the 2004 pinouts, which was 6 wires. You just cant go the other way, and use a 2005+ without the chipped key, key barrel, and immobilizer box to go with it.

Anyone still available to unbrick a 2004 STI ECU? I haven't got the time to build a kit.

Had an interesting one today. 2011 WRX. Tried using FDT and got the following:

Code:
Configuration:
'BOOT Mode' connection - using emulated interface
Opening port 'COM3' ...
Loading Comms DLL
Loaded Comms DLL
Initiating BOOT SCI sequence
Attempting 9600
Received immediate response from device: 0x80
Attempting 4800
Received immediate response from device: 0x80
Attempting 2400
Attempting 1200
Error No 15024: Boot failed
Error No 16132: Device does not support Protocol C
The board on this ECU is different from others I've done. I gave the ECUFlash SH boot mode recovery a shot but I got an error about
there are more memory areas in this CPU that will be erased than the ROM file you have has data for. write process aborted.

This is the 2nd ECU that I've had troubles reflashing. Has anyone seen a similar issue?
