    Bad blocks just happen. Those memory chips are complicated things. There's nothing you can do to fix them

    Bad NAND blocks arise during manufacturing. Since it is too costly to make the chip without having any bad blocks (They'd be tossing out hundreds of chips) they ship chips with bad blocks under a certain number. Anything over that number gets tossed.

    As for number two the answer would be to replace you're current chip.
