Default question converting to open ecu from cobb

hey i have a v1 cobb with a pro tune on it. I took the image of my ecu with the cobb tune then unmarried to stock thinking that I could reflash my ecu after doing this.

I haven't read any where that the V1 AP locks the ecu

My questions are:

Is it possible to copy the ROM from an ecu that is married with a tune and re flash with that image?

Is it possible to convert the 'PTM' file into a 'hex' or 'bin' file?

Is there anyway for me to do this? I paid a lot of my tune = [ and don't have the cash for a retune on an open ecu.

Thank you!!

un-marry..reverts back to stock rom file. so you can not copy cobb rom file.
but there have been others that have on earlier versions of AP.
so give it a try.

PTM is file extension for Cobb..i do believe..

With the APv1 if your protune was loaded as the basemap then the image you have will be of that tune. Any tunes loaded as a realtime map can not be read.
Reading, saving and reflashing cobb basemaps with opensource may be considered a violation of some intellectual property and stuff. I've seen debates here and other places that say its the same as pirating software or movies.
