I know this is insanely late, but there is a OS X driver available.

Awesome.
Is there a download for the ecuflash software on a mac, or are you still working on this?

I search quite a bit and have not been able to find anything but old references to getting this working on linux and osx.

I was contemplating trying to flash via Parallels, as I know the logging works.

Trying to flash could fry the ECU if is doesn't work right, so I have yet to try.

No. There's no official download yet.

The only trick is to get the driver installed correctly. Otherwise you it should be be fine under parallels.

With which ECU?

The one in the car...2002 WRX.

I'm not sure it would hurt the ECU, but it makes me nervous to try something I'm not sure about.

The driver appears to be working correctly through parallels. The logging works great.

I was just not confident enough in my grasp of how parallels and the ecu flashing process would work together to try it yet.

Has it already been done?

Ok I have the FTDI driver working on gentoo kernel 2.6.19. What do I need to do to get ECUFlash workin in linux now? Just compile the source?

Theoretically yes, but there's a fair bit of windows specific code in the ecuflash source.

I'll volunteer to port it to linux and add it to the gentoo portage tree if you want to (the FDTI drivers are in the 2.6.19 kernel now). I am not up on the license agreement but if it is still GNU or FreeBSd type, could I get the source somewhere?

Thanks,

Gabe

Ask Colby.

I'm more than happy to help with maintaining an ebuild as well. My personal linux machines all run gentoo.

OK, this thread implies some of you may have ecuflash working under OS X.

I've followed the directions with in the ftdchip driver disk image. I can communicate with the ECU using ecuflash in windows (same laptop, running XP Pro 32 in a virtual machine). However, if I plug the car and the laptop together and launch the mac version of ecuflash, it launches cleanly, but says "No Vehicle Interface" in the lower right corner. Any idea what I need to do?

You must _NOT_ have the ftdi driver installed for it to work.
