Hi Steven,

Other people can provide more details on the general case, but in this

i dropped this line because this line for chips fetch

I think this function is feature, because use "not general" op-code C4 for
die erase command. Also first we need to write a special function feature
extended addressing for chips more than 128 mb, after that we will think
about how to initiate die erase instruction.

What data sheets do you have for those chips?  The ones below list the

 I have a equivalence data sheets.
 LE25FW808 has a general op-code 20(hex) to initiate small sector erase.
Other chips use a feature op-code as D7.
