EcuFlash does not recognize WRX 2008 ECU maps.
Hi all,

I have just read my Subaru WRX 2008 2.5 Hatch ECU memory and it says:

Unknown ROM Image

Ecuflash could not recognize this ROM image using any of the curect definitions. You Can choose one of the following options:

-Abort using this ROM Image

-Continue using this ROM image with no definition (no editing, viewing, but saveable)

-Use wizard to create a new definition (For developers only)


Is that any LADM (Latin America Domestic Market)
BRDM (Brazilian Domestic Market)

My Subaru was officialy imported by Subaru Brazil, but our gas have 25% ethanol, probably they made some changes to the ECU but how to know if my car follows JDM or USDM guidelines?

By theory ANY Subaru in Brazil, being WRX 2008 have the same ECU flash map?

I just saved my car ROM as it is, if anyone would like to receive it please send me a message, I will be glad to send you, I would like to understand more all mods that factory made on stock ECU from Japan to Brazilian Market,

Thank you.

I have had this happen on my 09 Sedan. Closed everything out and tried again, worked fine. As long as you have the HTM file in the subaru folder you should be good to go.

Try it again and see what happens.

I hate this BS!! I hate computers so much. 8 hours at it and I don't understand a thing. Why do you have to down load shit and then unzip? Why do you have to delete subi folders when they already exist? What's it mean replace XML files with same XML file in the main directory? Make sure everything is in main directory? Etc etc etc. I have no idea what or where this bull shit goes or if it's done right. Why the F make it so difficult? Just hit down load and be ####ing done with it!

So then go buy an Accessport........your bitching about FREE SOFTWARE. If you don't like it then why don't you fix it?
