Hi all, I apologise if this has been asked before but I have been searching for the answers for a few days now.
I have read volumes on flashing, backing up, individualality of each eeprom etc. but I cannot work out what the difference is between firmware, and eeprom, apart from the obvious that one is code and the other is a chip.
These terms seem to be used almost interchangably.
I understand that I can update firmware easily using manuafacturers distributed files, this will generally give me improved reliability of burns etc.
I understand MTKFLASH better now too and have mastered backing up and restoring stuff from basic dos. (what am I backing up here, Eeprom or firmware?)
I am told not to touch the eeprom and this seems to be different to the firmware…any links, advice to help me understand this?
