What is flashing?

I am going to explain about the basic meaning of flashing for those who are new to this term or don’t know what it exactly is. Flashing is changing or overriding the ROM on your smart device. As we all know that the ROM memory is permanent and anything on it cannot be changed, so what we can do is we can change the entire information on the ROM by removing everything on it and starting from the starting. This is the meaning of the flashing and by this we thus can make our device functional the same way it was at the time we bought it.
