Correct. Save a copy of your current/original ROM before you do anything else. If it all goes pear-shaped, you can just put it back to how it is now.
And make a backup. These ROMs have security codes specific to your car, so if you lose it, you'll be stuck with a car that doesn't work.
Start tuning from a copy of your ROM.

Double check the flash-enable connector is plugged in correctly too; that's important.

with regards to cable i think that is ok because with the evoscan i succeed to connect and clear the fault codes.

Connecting to read codes and connecting to reflash are not the same. Reflashing requires the extra connector, because it forces the micro to run 'boot' code. You can't reflash without that.
