Flashing (or flashing firmware) refers to the overwriting of existing firmware or data on ROM modules present in an electronic device with new data. This can be done to upgrade a device  or to change the provider of a service associated with the function of the device, such as changing from one mobile phone service provider to another or installing a new operating system.
