Can you change chip size verification? At least for SPI EEPROMs, that i
flash almost every day, chip size doesn't really matter. I find it
really annoying, that i cannot flash 32Mb image to 64Mb chip and there
is no option to force it. So i have to boot Windows or edit image just
for that. Almost any other software can do that just fine.
So, can you add force key or warning message with (yes/no) option.
Default "yes", of course.
My spare green CH341A almost always was unable to find a chip. Luckily
I have another working CH341A, so started comparing them with a
When a "healthy" CH341A is simply plugged into a USB port, without any
chips connected, there is a 3.15V - 3.3V voltage between GND hole and
other 7 holes at 25xx socket. But a "glitchy" CH341A, when put to the
same situation, did not have a ~3V voltage difference between GND and
Then I checked a resistance between CS leg of CH341A chip ( found it
using this document -
) and CS pin at the bottom of programmer (instead of CS hole for
convenience) - it was almost always "infinite", but sometimes - when I
pushed CS leg with a multimeter pin - there was a close to 0 Ohm
resistance, almost zero.
So I did a small soldering of CH341A CS leg, see a picture
https://i.redd.it/mfrgs45beuv21.jpg - luckily this CS leg is at the
corner of chip so was quite convenient to solder - and now this CH341A
is happy and working perfectly! ;-) Will flash many BIOSes :3
Just want to report that I have now had many successes in reading and
writing to the following roms via the 3Com 905B network card:
ATMEL AT29C010A 120ns
ATMEL AT29C512 120ns
The ATMEL AT29C010A 70ns do fail probably because of the speed.
I have tested with both the iPXE and XTIDE open source projects.

Hello flashrom people,
I just wanted to bring a small triviality to your attention: currently,
`flashrom --help' warns the user that the command line interface is due
to change before v1.0, but we have already passed that version.
It is a very trivial change, but for convenience's sake I will attach a
patch for `git apply'.
