    374374== HW22: FLASH geometry layout change
    375375Issue:
    376  * End of Life of the 2GB NAND FLASH device used on Ventana GW5xx4 board models (and customer specials) has caused a change to a different FLASH device that has a differing block size. The change can cause a code change in the bootloader as well as an update to the Gateworks {{{jtag_usbv4}}} JTAG programming software.
     376 * End of Life of the 2GiB NAND FLASH device used on Ventana GW5xx4 board models (and customer specials) has caused a change to a different FLASH device that has a differing geometry (page size, block size) and ECC strength. These changes can cause a code change in firmware (bootloader and ubi image) as well as an update to the Gateworks {{{jtag_usbv4}}} JTAG programming software.
    377377
    378378Work-around:
    379379 * Use the Gateworks 2015.04 Bootloader with [https://github.com/Gateworks/u-boot-imx6/commit/a8572c2d12714a29113dbc90cc12e5fbef387bc7 a85742c] or the Gateworks 2017.05 Bootloader branch or newer
    380380 * Use the latest {{{jtag_usbv4}}} (v4.1) programming software
    381  * Create binary FLASH images with a 2K block size (use the 'normal' FLASH geometry images instead of the 'large' FLASH geometry images).
     381 * Use and create FLASH ubi images that were created with the 'normal' FLASH geometry ( 2K block size and a max-leb-count of 16384): see [wiki:linux/ubi#flashgeometry here for details]
    382382 * To identify the model number and revision, review this [wiki:modelserialnumber#ModelNumber wiki page]
