we had a report on IRC today regarding the asus M5A78L-M LX.
writing works, but the mac address is lost and the LOM defunct.
flashrom -V http://paste.flashrom.org/view.php?id=1184
binary as read by flashrom: http://paste.flashrom.org/uploads/1188.bin
the mac address in that image is C8:60:00:57:42:FF and is replaced with
ed:0b:00:00:e0:00 on writing the vendor image.
the mac address can be found at multiple offsets and formats in the
user did just restore the backup image, so we have no idea if leaving
those offsets alone would be successful.
i have added the board to our list.
Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
First of all, I want to note that the properly name of the native
Ponyprog2000 hardware programmer is "SI-Prog" and not "SI_Prog".
Also, talking about:
"Please note that while USB-to-serial adapters work under certain
circumstances, this slows down operation considerably."
Well, I for one, I understand by "considerably" that the operation will do
hours, instead of minutes. The sadly truth is that operation will be epic
slow. If I remember right,
that EEEPC's W25X40, which I flashed, is not a huge flash, just 4M. Still,
it was flashed in cca 27 hours.
Then, yes, PONY_SPI works fine over an PL2303 USB/serial adapter, under
Linux, but its job is epically slow...
So, I believe that is right to warn the user that he have to wait a very
very long time.
All the best,
