    The release of LibreTuner is coming up close, but I need more ECU ROMs to analyze. Currently, I have only added support for one speed6 firmware version.
    Edit
    I'm looking for both speed6 and speed3 ROMs. If you would like to help and you have a J2534 PassThru cable, you can use the current alpha release of LibreTuner to download ROMs and save them to a file.

    It can be downloaded by following the download link on the website and selecting the LibreTuner-v0.0.4-Windows.zip download. Unzip the archive and run LibreTuner.exe. If your PassThru cable was detected, it should show up under datalinks. If not, please let me know. There is only one option for the platform: Mazdaspeed6. This option will work for speed6s AND first gen speed3s. If you have a genpu, try it too but I'm not sure how similar the firmware is to the first generation.

    When you're done with setup go to File > Download ROM, type a name, and make sure the PassThru cable is connected to the computer and OBD-II port. Turn the key to ON and continue. It should start downloading. If not, let me know what the error is. When it's completed, a new window will show up saying the firmware version is unsupported. Press "Yes", save the ROM somewhere, and send it to me. If you don't get that windows and it says "successfully downloaded" instead, you have the one firmware version supported and I don't need the ROM.

    The download instructions can also be found in the manual.

    Thanks!

    Yes, that cable will work but I have not tested it myself.

    Would you need a pull of a stock rom?

    The download will fail if the authentication key has been modified from stock, which both AP and VersaTune do. If it becomes an issue that no one has a stock ROM, I can add VersaTune's authentication key, but I'm not sure about AP.

    Hmmm that will make it trickier, most people who are willing to help with this are likely tuned. I could flash back to stock but my car is down at the moment with no harness or anything.

    I published v0.0.2 which includes a new definition for VersaTune. You will need to select "Mazdaspeed6 - VersaTune" on setup.

    Following. Open source tuning makes funny things happen in my pantaloons.

    Someone want to loan me a cable? Can un-marry the AP and try to get the goods on a 2012.

    I have a buddy with a speed 6 and speed 3 first gen. I will see if we can pull from both those cars.

    Thta'd be great! If you have the cable, before you try downloading you might want to go plug it in to your computer and open LibreTuner. I was having an issue with the cable not being detected, so let me know if the Datalinks combo box is empty on the setup screen.

    [edit] It should be fixed in v0.0.4
