Make sure that you cycled the ignition on without starting the engine and then off again before trying to start the engine.

Does the engine start?

Is the ignition off or on when you see the red X? There will be a red X unless the ignition is switched on.

Who did the jailbreak? What is the ECU serial number or vehicle VIN?

Thanks for the replay. I had the jailbreak performed by Hondata. I shipped my ecu in and picked it up today. I cycled the ignition with no avail. The car does not start. The red x by ecu is present even when the ignition is on the serial number is 95BFA040046613. This is the serial number of my invoice for the jailbreak. Again thanks for the help it is much appreciated.

Did you ever figure this out? I encountered the same problem and car is currently undriveable.

I have not. I spoke to Anthony Gauthier, a Canadian jailbreaker for Hondata that reached out to me on the owners page when I asked for help there as well. He Facebook messenger called me and remotely logged into my laptop and just had me double check a few things and. And with the ignition on, I have no anti theft light illuminating car doesn’t even try to start. The computer is telling me it’s connected to the flash pro, and the flash pro is connected to the OBD however it doesn’t see the ignition is on. He unfortunately just was able to tell me something was wrong and to reach out to Hondata support. He seemed like a really stand up guy and I am beyond appreciative that he took time to reach out to me. I plan to email support at some point but Inwould imagine with it being the weekend it will be Monday before much can be done about anything

Same issue I’m having, wonder if our ECU’s were jail broken together as we both had the same problem coincidentally on the same day.

ECU serial number 95BFA210092595, jailbroken by Hondata 11/21/19. ECU installed at same time as sirimoto flex fuel kit. Vehicle started fine when checking for fuel leaks and shut off to finish buttoning everything up (battery was disconnected) now vehicle does not turn on. I am getting all error messages on dash and radio is asking for PIN number. Flashpro not showing connectivity to ECU and flashpro power light intermittently flashing when only hooked up to OBD port.

Can both of you use the 'Send Feedback to Hondata' function from FlashProManager?
