I've been reading for years posts about reflashing ECUs and have fallen into using the term myself. But isn't reflashing really just re-programing the ECU? Reading through the info on Danos website it seems clear that it's just re-programing. Am I missing something?

Here's where the term comes from. When they reprogram the ECU, they rewrite the flash memory.

So it's really not "reflashed". The flash memory is erased and re-programed. Interesting how we adopt terminology.
