    Q5. What is NAND and NOR?

    i)NOR:.Intel introduced the first commercial NOR type flash chip in 1988.NOR-based flash has long erase and write times, but provides full address and data buses, allowing random access to any memory location.

    ii)NAND:.NAND is the 2nd type of flash . It has faster erase and write times, and requires a smaller chip area per cell .Tt also has up to ten times the endurance of NOR flash. However, the I/O interface of NAND flash does not provide a random-access external address bus. Rather, data must be read on a block-wise basis, with typical block sizes of hundreds to thousands of bits.

        I Have This Tutorial

        HOW TO FIND RX TX Signal.

        It is tasted and also you can test it.

        1 step is, we need to find GND from phone.

        2 step is, we should power on phone (operation with dead phone:
        phone must be 100% dead by software)and take multimater put it to voltage.

        3 multimeter (-) line put it GND and with (+) line check each connectors
        , and usually Tx= 1.8v or 2.8v and Rx=1.7v or 2.7v
        (it will be change by processor but strongly 1.7v or 2.8v not 3v or 4v)
        This way is too easy and you will save a more time.
