This SSD is new, for research. In this thread I will post anything interesting I find. I hope to include things like:
- Console access
- 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: 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!
