Hi flashrom fellows,
I've just tagged `v1.0.1-rc1`. This is only a bug-fix release, obviously
the first on our 1.0.x branch. The latest commit is rather new, so
please test! Especially your layout use cases.
During the past year, we've gathered a total of 6 fixes! Namely:
* 6b9e934f linux_spi: Reduce maximum read chunksize
Improves compatibility with older Linux kernels that interpreted the
* 30c4cecd Makefile: Disable `-Werror=deprecated-declarations` on
Just to be able to compile the 1.0.x branch on newer systems.
* 5639af64 linux_spi: Hardcode default spispeed of 2MHz
Default speed of kernel drivers isn't always sane (any more).
* 993e162d dediprog: Fix small, unaligned reads
An actual bug, discovered during experiments with arbitrary
* ec8b8a7f board_enable.c: Fix dmi_match string for ThinkPad X201
Probably just wasn't tested before.
* 69f96f60 Fix verification with sparse layouts
A regression that sneaked into flashrom-1.0: When verifying the
whole flash after a partial write with a sparse layout (i.e.
a layout whose regions don't cover the whole chip), flashrom
tried to verify against the wrong data and failed.
Again, please test. If you don't use Git, you can find a tarball here:
It still passes all my local build tests, see below for a full list.

This flash part has status UNTESTED for operations: PROBE READ ERASE WRITE
The test status of this chip may have been updated in the latest development
version of flashrom. If you are running the latest development version,
please email a report to flashrom(a)flashrom.org if any of the above
work correctly for you with this flash chip. Please include the flashrom log
file for all operations you tested (see the man page for details), and
which mainboard or programmer you tested in the subject line.
Thanks for your help!
Reading flash... done.
I have used following command to program my Acer C720:
./flashrom -p internal:ich_spi_forces=yes -V -N --ifd -i bios -w peppy/coreboot-peppy-seabios-latest.ro m > ferr.txt 2>&1

I will appreciate any suggestion.
After a failed HP ME firmware on my HP Z200 the computer did displays a "management platform in manufacturing mode" message during bootup, and when I boot into windows my computer shuts off by itself after about 30 minutes.
After Googling arround i found the some one with exact the same issue see: https://www.win-raid.com/t4165f39-Z-switches-off-after-minutes-unable-to-...
After reading this post i ordered the CH341-A and decided to give a try with the modifed BIOS file made by plutomaniac the 7H3_0122.bin
The only difference with the mainbord of Lost_N_BIOS is the BIOS chip, he does have a winbond W25Q64 and i do have a Macronix MXIC MX25L6445E
I've tried to the flash the Bios with a clip but it failed, therefore i soldered the chip on the adapter and tried to flash it again.
But again i get the error:
FAILED at 0x00000000! Expected=0x00, Found=0xff, failed byte count from 0x00000000-0x007fffff: 0x33d731
Your flash chip is in an unknown state.

Help! I was following instructions on this page (
https://kodi.wiki/view/Chromebox) to allow the install of a new OS on my
Chromebox. I've successfully run this on HP Chromeboxes, but this ASUS
Chromebox seems to be giving me fits. It returned the following error

DO NOT REBOOT OR POWEROFF!
An error occurred flashing the Full ROM firmware. DO NOT REBOOT!
I haven't touched it yet so it's still waiting. What can I do to get it
back on track? Please let me know if you need any additional information.
Flashing MSI 945GZM6-F succeeded perfectly.
It helped me automatically installing 23 workstations using PXE, while
the previously installed BIOS had a bug in the PXE ROM.
No need to say how happy I am to save all these motherboard. They are
now in use for free by refugees. Obsolete systems for Windows, great
machines for Linux. Another miracle by the open source community.

Maybe this software update updates only a small part of your device
memory contents - I don't know.

Seems to be a correct approach - maybe someone just made a dump of
complete memory contents and shared it. Have you flashed it already
and is it working?

CH341A USB programmer - it works fine and also very cheap - about $2
or $3 with free shipping from China (e.g. AliExpress) or maybe
slightly more expensive to get it locally. Make sure to get a "green
PCB" version of it and also check that it outputs 3.3V instead of 5V
before using it: there was a small number of (mostly black PCB) CH341A
which gave 5V instead of 3.3V - although it's possible to fix them.
Hello Flashrom Support Team,
I have a Windows 10 32 bit PC. I need your program flashrom. Unfortunately I can not compile the program. Can you send me the program compiled? I would be very grateful. Many thanks for the help.
