Get read ISUZU transtron for map edit Ok 

Exactly. Genius has a perfect feature. It can bypass TPROT security and allow to to flash TPROT ecus without having to open the ecu to unlock it at the first place. You just flash your mod by OBD like you would on any other non TPROT ecu. (Although on TPROT ecus reading function is not available)
But the problem is, that you need to checksum the file with Race Evo on these ecus. Anything else will not work.

Tested read & write fail on Toyota
