    Thank you
    Flash dump is the entire contents of receiver flash memory usually obtained by using a jtag port and a jtag program like jkeys.Only receivers that use the sti5518 processor still have this capability as of this writing.
    Firmware is what's in the flash memory to make the receiver go,and in most cases is just a small portion of the entire flash dump.Upgrades/hacks are loaded to the receiver via serial port with a firmware loader usually tailor made for a particular brand/model of receiver.The word software is sometimes used instead of firmware.
