That's interesting. This command does write to the chip without erasing
first, so the image you now have in ROM is supposed to be a mixture of
the old and new BIOS. If you haven't tried rebooting yet, I'd advise
Please try to verify the image you just wrote before rebooting.
as it had that chip (1024K) and another unknown one
Yes, known quirk, will be fixed in the near future.
It took around 1 minute.
btw, that worked on linux 184.108.40.206, but on linux 2.6.26 (which I need
for other device support), I get:
# flashrom -r bios.bin
Calibrating delay loop... OK.
No coreboot table found.
Found chipset "Intel ICH9R", enabling flash write... Can't mmap memory
using /dev/mem: Invalid argument
linux 2.6.26 has an option for filtering userspace access to /dev/mem, I
