Hi Lukas,


hanging while reading is a bit strange but not impossible.


Please use the newest dev version:

git clone https://github.com/flashrom/flashrom.git


And build it at your own

(something like: navigate to the resulting flashrom directory, and do:


make install



After doing so run it again and check if problem still exists.


Btw: Before updating I would always make sure that reading works fine. i.e. run reading cmd twice and compare read results. Only if they do not differ, I´d recommend to write.
