    Did you tell them what you were doing?

    I have an interesting thought though. Anyone try this with a SSD/usb 3.0 laptop?
    Flash speed will be exactly the same. Even still, USB 3 will down clock to USB 2.

    I'm not talking about flash speed though. I'm talking about how fast EZFlash is processing. Think about a java program, where you have a equation with a huge variable so that there is a bit of a pause. On a computer from 5 years ago, it may have been a 5 second pause, but with computers now, there would be almost no pause as the computer is processing it faster (I guess this would be more a processing question, although any communication bus speed/read/read speed will have some sort of play). I've also noted that although my 3 year old USB drive is for usb 2.0, it does work a little faster on usb 3.0. Bottlenecks somewhere.

    My thoughts are that since netbooks aren't powerhouses, the program runs quite well on a netbook. When you get a computer that's meant to do a lot of processing (I use my mac to edit videos/high resolution photos for clients) then it can go faster.

    I know it's not written in Java, but I think you get the gist of what I'm saying. I feel like the computer shouldn't have anything to do with it, but maybe?

    The issue, as Jerry said, was that it tried to write before it was done erasing. Just a thought.

    Having been through the code for ez flash, I can tell you it isn't processing anything. It's just communicating with the PCM. The cable communication is why it lags in additiona to their thread management techniques.

    Disclaimer: I am only looking at a decompiled version which may not accurately represent the original code base, but a version in which the interpreter thinks is accurate based on the generated IL code.

    But as far as I can tell, the ECM is unreadable even, so we'll see when the technicians look at it.. they might not even be able to reflash it themselves. OnlyTaurus, have you ever come across a similar scenario?
    Sorry for the delayed response Mahoney.

    No, I have not. But I'm one of the techs that are cool with mods(look at my sig ). I would've just thrown a new ECM in for you, sounds like it's completely dead. S**t happens..

    Regardless, I'm glad your techs are doing the same for you. Just make sure your battery is fully charged next time you program it! lol.

    Well you had no choice then!

    That's ok, I reflashed 10 minutes before I had to go somewhere important with my wife and the car died and took 45 minutes to get it back up. She was pissed. I recall her saying something like, "Next time you want to spend $400 to break you car, let me know and I'll do it for free".

    No worries man!

    Haha, it was charged! Everything was running smoothly until the end, but I think I'm going to see if Vince can redo the tune to eliminate anything that might be wrong with it.

    But yeah, they couldn't read the ECM, so they've got the new one on order! When I go in next To pick it up, I'm going to see their thoughts on performance mods (most of what I have is visual).

    I'm just glad I can drive again.

    On a side note, I see the techs come in sometimes to my work, so I might ask one of them

    Yeah, I got a bit of a lecture from my girl - I think it's because I then had to borrow her/her car haha.

    Her dad asked what happened... that was fun. He's an OPP officer (similar to a state trooper, but less big green hat).. so he 'jokingly' grilled me about needing more power. I feel like there was probably an undertone of truth to what he was saying haha.

    Alright! So the Cruze is back and in working order. They replaced the ECM as they were 'unable to connect to it', whether that means it was bricked or shorted - it has since been replaced. The dealership also replaced the coolant hose, and did some more sealing and now my coolant smell has disappeared (hopefully when I get in the car tomorrow it stays the same - it's usually only noticeable when it sits in the garage overnight). I want to try giving the tune another go, but I'm concerned if it will kill my car again.

    I can't really be without the car for a week again until at least after Christmas. Hmm.
