Default Diablo Intune I3 bricked my ECU

So after visiting my wife in the ICU, I get home and decide to calibrate my speedo/mileage. When i initally put the diablo tune in a few years , speedo was over by about 8%. I have adjusted it a few times over the years and was down to about 4% So I update my trusty InTune I3 and plug her in. Make the necessary adjustments and everything seemed to go fine.

However, when I tried to start the car, nothing but the red security light. So I plug the I3 back in to reset everything. It wont recognize the vin.

Plan B. I had a spare ECU that I think I got from myckee. Dark and windy outside but got the swap done in about 30 min. Cranked up and ran fine.

Q: Can i get the bricked one reflashed or just better off getting another spare?

First, prayers for your wife to have a speedy recovery. I can't answer that one for sure, but I'd suggest asking Myckee. HE will know.

Aspire to inspire before you expire.

I think if the PCM had no issues before the DS mishap, I can very likely bring it back to life.
