Although it's possible to use just the 8M chip by using modified layout, it might be confusing for a beginner.
I managed to flash my T430's both flash chips by splitting the 12M coreboot image into two parts (4M + 8M) and flashing the chips separately, is this not a good option? This way I don't have to pass a layout file to flashrom, it just writes to both chips. It also allows me to have a larger CBFS.
See, already confusing ;) On T530/W530 you can access the 8M chip right after you remove the keyboard and palmrest, but the 4M chip stays under the frame. And if you don't want to waste your time by disassembling the laptop completely and then assembling it back, you can use only the 8M chip and never even touch the 4M one, but in order to do that, you have to modify the layout.
