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.

I notice the string: KCC-REM-LIT-LCS-512M6S.. I wonder if this is a remanufactured/refurbished 512GB model?

On the board, a serial port is clearly marked with TRG obviously TX RX and GND. I got no output on a serial test with Putty. Serial Console needs to be enabled?

The other unpopulated 10pin block, or the test points TP1, TP52, TP53, TP56, TP61 etc, could be JTAG. Not sure what TM1, TM2, TM3 are. I will test these soon.

Hi

I understand your post is from long time ago, do you have circuit diagram for this? I am hoping to revive a drive which is giving slight smell when applied power. I think either a capacitor or voltage regulator is burned.

@xImran, if you can provide clearer photos, I should be able to show you the voltage test points.

    chip markings
    clearer photos/scans
    terminal output when NAND R/B* pin grounded
    support for DevSleep? (SATA power pin P3)
    onboard supply voltages
    serial flash dump
