This SSD is new, for research. In this thread I will post anything interesting I find. I hope to include things like:
- Console access
- JTAG
- Firmware update, RE, tricks, tips
- Possibility of NAND chip off recovery
- Wear levelling/ECC/data Structures etc
- anything interesting

Feel free to add anything you might know or find out, or any comments, criticism etc. All I ask Is the thread stays on topic to this research.

review from Tom Hardware: http://www.samsung.com/tr/business-images/resource/brochure/2014/01/Review-Article-Toms-Hardware-Samsung-SSD-840-PRO-0.pdf

I notice the string: NSIP-REM-SEC-MZ-7PD256M.. I wonder if this is a remanufactured/refurbished 256GB model?

On the board there is a row of 7 Vias that go to an unpopulatd 10-Pin DIP IC pad. Maybe serial/JTAG is disabled in this way? Not a lot to look at on this baby!

to decode the firmware, checkout this: http://forum.hddguru.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=31127

The 2 pins on the left in the last picture, are those for safe mode? Is it safe to short them? Thanks.
