Default Really retarded question about tuning.

As of right now I'm sure I will baffle you all with my shear stupidity but, I digress. Upon finding (finally) an 'open source' (free 'cuz I'm cheap and cool like that) tuning program -Tiny Tuner- through the grapevine I was wondering what cable I will be needing to mod/reflash/read/download the .Bin file off my current ECU. I do have a second backup so-to-speak if I.... yeah..... but, I was just wondering if i needed just a regular ol' USB to OBD2 or one of the scan suites from Hp Tuners, godforbid, or a DHP(?) cable? I've got some reading to do about modding anything at all on this ECU and to those who have done a personal remap or tune all advice is appreciated beyond belief. Thanks all!!!

as soon as I scrounge up some money I may look into that cable. Do you think that cable has flashing software included? Or am I going to need to dig that up too?
