My intention was to just disable the command that writes the new region to flash memory. As far as I remember the drive stores changes in flash, but only uses a RAM value for checking.
However I hope that people don't expect me to modify every existing firmware to make make it auto-reset. This definitely won't happen :disagree:
[EDIT]Anyone willing to test an auto-reset firmware. If so, please let me know which firmware you want to test.[/EDIT]
