Update from Feb 17th:
Samsung has started to upgrade eMMC firmwares on the field - only for GT-I9100 for now.
See post #79 for additional details.
Update from Feb 13th:

Okay, got a RAM dump :)
I won't post it here (or anywhere else for that matter) because I don't want to get sued by Samsung.
I might release a kernel which allows you to dump the RAM yourself if there's enough demand, but I don't want to right no...
Just a quick update: thanks to a kernel compiled by AndreiLux, and thanks to artesea for doing an eMMC RAM dump on his device, we've got the 0xf7 firmware!
It seems that it is runnable on the same hardware. It means that we can probably field upg...
So I decided to do a small RAM dump after all.
Before the patch, 0x5C7EA reads FD F7 C2 FA, which is "BL 0x59D72".

I will dump function 0x59D72 later this week.
WARNING: The attached patch is dangerous as it sends low-level commands to your eMMC chip. Please, use it ONLY if you know what you're doing. I'm not responsible for anything!
I've attached a kernel patch which allows you to read the eMMC RAM.
