Whimory is the name of the Flash Translation Layer (FTL) used in several NAND-flash based mp3 players. FTLs typically manage the following tasks: * Presenting the flash as a simple block-device to the filesystem layer above * Wear leveling of the NAND flash, spreading out the erase operations evenly over all blocks * Error detection and correcting * Bad-block management, keeping a list of bad flash blocks so they are no longer used to store data Players using the Whimory FTL include: | *Player* | *Firmware* | *Whimory* | *Remark* | | Ipod nano 2g | | ? | | | Meizu M3 | T2003.5, M3_T2004.6 | 2.1.2 | | | Meizu M6-SP | S1010_RC4, M6_S2004.6 | 2.1.2 | | | Meizu M6-SL | M6SL_V2.004.6 | 2.1.2 | | | Samsung YP-S3 | ? | 2.2.0 | | | Samsung YP-R0 | ? | 2.2.1 | | | Samsung YP-T9 | ? | 2.0.0 | | | iriver E10 | ? | 2.0 | | | iriver T10 | ? | ? | | | iriver T20 | ? | ? | | | iriver T30 | ? | ? | | -- Main.BertrikSikken - 2009-11-01
