-  * **__NEVER__** flash undedicated cores on a Vampire board : +
-  * Do **NOT** flash, for example, a core dedicated to ''V600 V2'' on a ''V600 V1'' or ''V500 V2+''+
-  * DO **NOT** use your Operating-System during a flash operation. +
-  * ALWAYS have a copy of the previous working core. +
-  * Having copy will be useful in case of severe bugs in new release. +
-  * BETTER to have a ready-to-use ''USB-Blaster'' in case of serious issue. +
