Thanks for all that good info on the faulty chip bug.

I was curious since it was mentioned;

IF samsung gave the green light to release the fix so kernals could use the emmc_cap_erase command without exploding.. would applying this update involve direct interfacing with the chip, or would it be possible to apply it with some sort of odin or recovery?

I have tried flashing ICS LPY and LP9, no problem so far.

I have a 32gb Note and (VZL00M 0X1A). It comes up as unknown for bug. Is your result suggesting that possibly the 32gb Notes are safe? Also, did you wipe with no problem or just flash?

No. Different problem altogether to the emmc bricking bug. Sounds like a Rom problem. Try in the relevant rom thread for answers.

Hi fellow Androidians, how about a worldwide petition letter to Samsung. Below I've made a draft, feel free to amend accordingly.

Dear Samsung,

Complaint about faulty goods

We the World Wide Samsung Android Community have bought a Galaxy Note N7000 from your Authorized Distributors/Sales Centers since launch. We approximately paid USD600, price would vary for each country.

We now find the goods have the following fault:

Faulty Chips.

Under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (as amended), goods you supply must be of satisfactory quality. As there was a problem with the goods when we bought them, I request that you provide us with a replacement set that is without any faulty chips.

We suggest that your esteemed corporation do a product recall worldwide.
Failure to do so shall result in worldwide boycott on Samsung products.

Please respond within 14 days of receiving this letter.

Yours sincerely

Yeah, because *that* is going to help

We already know Samsung is working on this. We know how to fix the problem in custom kernels. We know Samsung replaces devices that are bricked this way.

Also, technically the chip isn't faulty, the chip's firmware is faulty. The problem is that updating the firmware on those chips is a really nasty affair you really don't want end-users to be doing, unless it has gone through some very rigorous testing.

What possible use would it be to exchange all the Note's out there with new models with fixed firmwares, if they can just as well release a software update (that we know they are working on) that accomplishes the same thing ?

What exactly do you want to happen here, aside from wasting a metric ****ton of Samsung's money, which we'll all have to pay extra on the next device to recuperate these funds ?

This problem is something us "tweakers" need to be aware of for now, until it is fixed. Normal users will rarely if ever even run into this issue, and if they do, Samsung will replace the unit under warranty. Us tweakers have been warned, we know how to work around it, and we know a fix is coming - what could you possibly want beyond that ?
