Tunerpro doesn't do that, it's simply a tuning program. If you know the map addresses, you input them into tunerpro, and you can make changes to the mapping in a graphical format.

The ROM has to be read/written to the ecu by another program.

Creating the xdf is easy, it's straight translation of map addresses into the software. Unless the person making the xdf knows exactly what each map does, all you'll have is a file loaded full of maps without axis values, populated with raw bytes. To accurately make an xdf for someone, you need to d...
