Well above desperation is over. Last Friday I traded my chip with one of
Idwer's pre-flashed chips, whom was extremely kind in helping me. Since
a couple of days I inserted the chip and the system woke up like the
sleeping beauty. :)

Many thanks to all helping me via this list, IRC and IRL.

@Idwer: Have you tried my old bioschip yet, did it work on your system?

Hey Yuri,

I finally found (and took) the time to mess with your chip.

Using flashrom r883, probing, reading and writing your chip works; erasing is work in progress (Sean ?).

Luc: the chip itself doesn't appear to be broken because writing a 512KB file created with dd from /dev/zero and reading it back, then comparing the empty and readout file with md5sum shows that the files are identical (ergo empty) -- yes, I saved the original content.
