Just ignore my email. Backporting the latest flashrom version from Debian testing and running the backported version helped, so my problem is solved. :-)
Thanks anyway! Sven

I just bought an PC Engines APU1C4 board, which the manufacturer says can be updated using flashrom. But in my case, it didn't seem to work. This is what happended:
<SNIP> root@irmabox:~# flashrom -w apu140405.rom flashrom v0.9.5.2-r1546 on Linux 3.2.0-4-amd64 (x86_64) flashrom is free software, get the source code at http://www.flashrom.org
Calibrating delay loop... OK. coreboot table found at 0xdffdf000. Found chipset "AMD SB7x0/SB8x0/SB9x0". Enabling flash write... OK. Found Macronix flash chip "MX25L1605" (2048 kB, SPI) at physical address 0xffe00000. Reading old flash chip contents... done. Erasing and writing flash chip... Erase/write done. Verifying flash...

Get help on IRC at chat.freenode.net (channel #flashrom) or mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "FAILED: <your board name>"!
DO NOT REBOOT OR POWEROFF! root@irmabox:~#
Of course, I did NOT power off or reboot the board. The bios file I tried to flash is an original bios from the manufacturer's site.
Thanks for any hint.
Best regards, Sven
