They answered me the next day after the inquiry at firstname.lastname@example.org!
They said that the solution is not applicable in the field (as an electronics engineer, I asked for firmware--faulty unit has version B001), and advised RMA.
["we are sorry to tell you that the items have the firmware problem but the update can't be finished by yourself and it needs to be sent to factory"]
FYI, my faulty unit data:
Indilinx Barefoot Plus controller IDX110M02
Micron 4 GB NAND 29F32G08CBABA (8 pcs)

I decided to do a step by step video guide for it.
How To RunCore SSD Firmware Update - YouTube
these are the requirements:

- Paper Clip
- MP Tool Indilinx
Material supplied by official email@example.com:
- Instructives PDF:
- MP Tool: (Flashing Tool With Latest Firmware 2030 version)
Thanks Insider for the brilliant Idea for the paper clip.
I just had my RunCore Pro IV 32GB stop being detected in my eeepc 901 after 3 years of use. I've successfully fixed it (losing all data) using the help from this thread.
Here are a few more notes about my experience...
SSD manufacturers -RunCore SSD Official Website > service > firmware upgrade > RCP-IV-XXXX-MC_SSD_Rework_or_FW_upgrade_Tools_FW2030
(I had to register to download. The download contains Indilinx MP Tool for both Samsung and Intel flash chips)
My Flash chips are Intel. I asked RunCore via tech support email which option I should choose in 'Device type', but they never responded, so I went for trial and error until the flash succeeded.
I checked the 'use usb bridge' option on the 'option' tab.
I found that some USB controllers or possibly PCs don't seem to work reliably. If you get a hang after 'RAM BIST' in the console window, try another PC.
Here are pictures of my SSD and the 'Device type' setting that finally worked for me.
