Firmware is a software that provides control, monitoring and data manipulation of engineered products and systems. Firmware is held in non-volatile memory devices. Common reasons for updating firmware include fixing bugs or adding features to the device. This may require ROM integrated circuits to be physically replaced, or flash memory to be reprogrammed through a special procedure. As of 2013, most firmware can be updated.
Flashing involves the overwriting of existing firmware or data, contained in flash memory. This is what we are doing here.
