Too many errors. Writing has been stopped
=============

The problem is due to the fact that the memory cells in sector 0 have exceeded the lifetime and have a write error occurs.

One solution to this problem is to create a "fake" GP1 partition with a "zero" size.

Thus, the ROM1 is shifted by several sectors and the have a new logical beginning of the section falls on non-killed cells.

This operation sometimes completely kill the eMMC, so use it at your own risk.
