    I have bought a chinese made spi 341a flasher and tried to flash winbond w25q128fw which seems to be an 1.8v chip. Write fails everytime at random percentage. Is it due to not applying correct voltage? Or my flasher is at the fault?

    Ok so I fixed the problem by using 1.8 V adapter. Seems 1.8V roms cant be flashed with 3.3v flasher directly.
