PAQ (Probably Answers to Questions 😉
Q: What is UFI UFS-Prog?
A : UFI UFS-Prog is an add-on interface to UFI Box for UFS programming.
So its use must be paired with UFI Box, all versions of UFI Box, whether it's black(old) or white(new).
Q : Can UFI UFS-Prog be used for UFI Dongle?
A : No.
Q : Can we use a third party UFS adapter for UFI-UFS Prog?
A : No. Mapping data access pins for each adapter is different.
The UFI UFS-Prog sales package is equipped with a UFI UFS 2 in 1 BGA Adapter for BGA 153 and 254
and has security chip embedded in it.
Q : Does UFI UFS-Prog support ISP?
A : Yes, of course.
The sales package also includes a UFI UFS ISP Plus 3 in 1 Soldering Adapter
with additional soldering pads for BGA 153, 254 and BGA 95.
Q : What about the UFI UFS-Prog Read/Write speed?
A : UFI UFS-Prog Support LS(PWM Gear 1-4) and HS Gear 1-3B.
For UFI UFS Adapter on chip supported HS Gear 3B can be up to 100-200 MBps.
But for safe claims, lets say 120/80 Mbps due to many factor,
like USB host on your PC/Laptop port, data cable quality, also your hard drive interface.
PC/Lapto with NVME/SSD drive will improve read/write speed significantly.
UFI UFS-Prog use USB 3.1 interface, so if your USB port only supports USB 2.0,
the speed will also drop.
For ISP mode with LS PWM an average 4 MBps.
Q : I saw in some leaked images, the chip in the UFI UFS-Prog is used by other products,
some even call it open hardware, is this true?
A : Yes, right.
But don't forget, we use our own custom firmware, hardware and software that we developed ourselves,
of course with special features of UFI Software with an easy-to-understand GUI.
As a simple example, various mobile phone brands can use the same chipset/SoC platform,
but the capabilities and features are certainly different.
Q : Does UFI UFS-Prog support for UFS 3.0?
A : Not for now. Currently supports up to UFS 2.2.
But we'll try to unlock the possibilities by exploring our custom firmware to be able to access UFS 3.0
at least in PWM mode at a later date.
But keep in mind, most smartphones on the market of course still use UFS 2.0-2.2.
Soon we will also release an update for Android ToolBox,
especifically for Mediatek which will be able to access raw binary data directly to UFS as well as eMMC.
So please pray and support us so that we can fulfill your expectations.
Q : So, should we buy UFI UFS-Prog?
A : Yes, if you already have UFI Box, and when you open UFS ToolBox you see a pop up window says No UFI UFS-PROG Device Detected! 😉
UFI UFS-Prog will maximize the functions and features of UFI Box to be able to repair more and recent smartphones,
where most are already using UFS.
