Warning: RomRaider is intended for use only by experienced tuners who understand the consequences. As with any tuning solution, the potential for engine damage is very high when altering your ECUs hard coded values. The use of appropriate equipment (ie, knock sensor, wideband oxygen sensor) is extremely important. By downloading RomRaider, you agree to assume all risks and accept its license. Use at your own risk.
|Download RomRaider 0.5.6 Release Candidate 6 (2013–03–24)
The latest release of RomRaider is available here for Windows and here for Other Platforms. Both variants are installers (ZIP archives also available - see below) and require the latest 32bit (x86) version of Java SE JRE to already be installed.
Windows ZIP | Linux ZIP
This version of RomRaider does NOT ship with ECU or logger definitions. You are required to download and install both sets of definitions in order for RomRaider to be functional. You can find the latest ECU definitions HERE and the latest logger definitions HERE.

Git bug list
0.5.6 Release Candidate 6 Build#483 (03/24/2013)
- fix for various Table Compare operations: by scotthew
- added a Java 64bit VM check and warning message: by lizzardo [*1]
- fix Logger Close while on any of the MAF, Injector or Dyno tabs: by lizzardo
- added a Java 64bit VM check and error message then close: by lizzardo [*1]
- fix to allow logging of External sensors only (with no ECU connection) [*2]
- refactor to allow easier addition of other future Logging protocols
- added ISO15765 protocol support on Windows platform [*3]
- added a user Setting to Logger to force English US number format in log files
- fix for issue #4 (multiple Query Managers could be started)
- update ‘Log to file’ button to switch between ‘Start/Stop’ in the label
- add a rudimentary test app to read some OBD-II parameters [*4]
- reformat (shorten) display of Profile and log file names in Logger title bar
- added a Java 64bit VM check and warning message during installation: by lizzardo [*1]
- Since RomRaider relies on various externally provided classes and vendor libraries, the 64bit Java VM is not supported. The RomRaider installer and Editor will issue warnings if a 64bit Java VM is detected and advise the user to uninstall it and install the 32bit Java VM. The Logger will warn and exit. It is unlikely that 64bit Java VM will even be supported as all external classes and vendor libraries must be compiled for native 64bit operation. See note 3 for an example.
- To log External sensors only, un-select both the ECU and TCU checkbox on the Logger menu bar. Then switch to the Externals tab and check the items to be logged. The log Externals only setting is not retained between logging sessions.
- The use of ISO15765 requires a J2534 compliant cable. Since the J2534 specification only defines Windows 32bit systems as a valid platform, Linux systems are not officially supported. When/if a Linux J2534 driver becomes available then support can be enabled for non-Windows platforms.
- This rudimentary test app ONLY works with J2534 compliant cables and ONLY supports the ISO15765 protocol. It can currently read out the vehicle information and any active DTCs. The app can ONLY be started in the RomRaider directory from a command window using the following syntax:
java -cp RomRaider.jar com.romraider.io.j2534.api.TestJ2534IsoTp [j2534dll]
where [j2534dll] is a valid J2534 DLL library name, default is to use the Tactrix Openport 2.0 library
