    Default Shogun Reset vs disconnect ZIF connector from Computer

    What is the difference between doing the Shogun Reset and just disconnecting the ZIF connector from the DME computer? Doesn't disconnecting the computer connector clear the memory from the DME?

    Just curious.

    Yes, it does. Some people are paranoid about disconnecting the DME with the battery connected though...
