If your only way to flash the flash is via a program, or something
embedded in the lenovo bios, stop now, or stockpile 20 or 30 of these
laptops, because you're going to create some bricks along the way.

That means that it is not supported.

The probability is 1.0.

No way. You will need to use serial port. Just plug the header to mainboard and
use some USB 2 serial from other computer (together with null modem cable) if
you need more info please let me know.

It looks some people can send me some money and I could buy the richland to see
if it workks... but this could happen somewhere in March.

The image I sent to you will most likely not POST the image because of different
IDs, but X.org could initialize it.

Assuming usb 2 is PCI 0:1d.0 (which would have been clearly identified
in parts of the log you did not send), use USBDEBUG_HCD_INDEX=1 for
Default kernel configuration will not output anything on usbdebug. Now
that you know the correct physical USB port, have the phone powered on
and connected, run 'cat /dev/ttyGS0' and then boot the chromebox with
the coreboot image with usbdebug feature enabled.
On this boot, what do you get for dmesg output on the phone side? Just
send the complete log or put it available for download without separate
If still nothing interesting appears, you could try coreboot with
spkmodem console and possibly POST display card, but I do not know how
to connect those on chromebox.
And.. last but not least, the instructions you followed, did they have a
step with 'make crossgcc'?
I check the list of supported motherboards and laptops but I did not found
in them the Lenovo Thinkpad T61
I have one under my hands but I saw that EC could cause a lot fo trouble
but few others Thinkpad are supported.
I followed this guide
but obviously EC does not allow the flashrom to dump the rom but the rom
is available on lenovo website and it exist a proprietary flash utility by
the vendor. All logs are available, just ask me for them.
I did not followed this other guide
because I would like to understand the magnitude of probability to brick
the laptop before.

I think my first reply was quite clear on what information I need to
assist you solve it. But I am too close to see if some obvious details
from my instructions were missing.
This is more easily solved if you come to discuss on #coreboot. You
should then write a tutorial for our wiki or at least reply here with
the steps were you went wrong the first time.
I'm gathering information as per request on behalf of an existing x60t
user (he does not yet have coreboot).
He wonders, if work is being done to support the stylus function on an
x60 tablet machine.
If no work is currently being done (and noone is interested) he wonders
who would be able to implement it regardless (he is happy to pay for
this to be done).
The wiki mentions that this is "WIP" but does not seem to link to any
relevant information. It does link here
http://forum.bongofish.co.uk/index.php?topic=2307.0 and here
http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Wacom_Serial_Tablet_PC_Stylus which seems
to contain some information.
The first link seems to show some datasheets/schematics.
Who should I contact regarding further development?

I am the "maintainer" of the bachmann/ot200 mainboard and current git runs well
on the device.
