    ECU bricked?

    So I need a little help or advice. 2013 WRX. I just tried to flash my ECU with the fourth stage 1 revision from Torqued Performance with ECUflash and Openport 2.0 and it gave me an error while reflashing. I did three successful flashes and a lot of logs with Romraider for the past couple weeks. Now the car won't start, all electronics come on but won't turn over at all. Can't flash any maps or even read the ECU. Talked to Eric from TP and he said its most likely a bricked ECU. He said to call either Tactrix or Cobb to send my ECU to try and get fixed. Anybody have any other suggestions or remedies? Thanks.

    Try removing the negative battery cable and then hold down the brake pedal for about a minute. Re-install neg battery cable and see if you can now flash. If not you will have to send it to the places mentioned above unless you are somewhat computer savvy.

    Yeah I already tried that, no luck. I guess I'll be sending it in. I emailed both companies but I'm not gonna hear back from them until Tuesday. Any idea on how much each company charges for this?
