Added block table for Samsung K8Q2815UQB. The programming modes "writeword" and "writewordubm" don't require manual chip/sector erase prior to writing anymore!
Bugfix: "NORway.py COMx release" didn't work. Now you can leave Teensy powered at all times and console will boot up correctly after issuing a "release" command
Bugfix: increased TRANSMIT_TIMEOUT for Teensy's serial device to 10000ms (required for OS X)
Bugfix: disabled DSR/DTR flow control (wasn't working reliably on OS X)
Bugfix: TRISTATE wasn't set correctly
Added additional verification when writing is done. Although each write command verifies each written sector/block, it happened that written bytes weren't persistent
Added "verify" command
NORway v0.6 Beta Changelog:
Changed programming modes "write", "writeword" and "writewordubm" to "vwrite", "vwriteword" and "vwritewordubm".
Added new programming modes that skip verification for single 4KB blocks: "write", "writeword" and "writewordubm".
Moved verification algorithm to Teensy.

While this makes me glad I bought a Teensy++ 2.0 the thought of soldering 40+ wires makes me cringe. It's been way too many years since I've had to solder that many wires into a console, not since I put a DMS3+ into my V4 PS2 years ago.
Lol I remember those.. am sure they will use better pasties for the strip job.. this time around.. (pun intended)
But i think, I'll just wait for the downgrade package install or something.. or maybe even a custom upgrade->downgrade method than soldering.. I don't have that steady hands for this fine soldering job.. it'll be a nightmare.. I know how i soldered the dvd9 mod to the ps2 back in the day..
I hope it isn't like those PS2 Neo clips from back in the day hehe, those caused more issues than they were worth.. by the time the PS2 was put back together a pin lost connection or when the console was moved people had to take it apart again.
