Subject: Re: FMR's flash chip
From: TP Diffenbach (rockbox_at_diffenbach.org)
Date: 2003-12-25


To clarify:

So (as far as we know) all FMRs come with the SST39VF020, and no FMRs are
reported to come with the SST37VF020?

Or some come with the SST37VF020, which is flashable but not in-circuit
flashable?

Thanks,
and Merry Christmas, or whatever you prefer to celebrate.
