Hi, I'm trying to write to a Macronix MX25L3205 on a Samsung Series 5 laptop, I backed up the original contents and attempted to flash a new one which always fails at the same spot. Erasing fails at that spot, but succeeds up to then.
I'm happy to do some work to get this working, here's the requested information:
bin (http://paste.flashrom.org/view.php?id=1032) for unknown by nickoneill superio (http://paste.flashrom.org/view.php?id=1031) for unknown by nickoneill lspci (http://paste.flashrom.org/view.php?id=1030) for unknown by nickoneill flash (http://paste.flashrom.org/view.php?id=1029) for unknown by nickoneill
That's really odd... do you have dmidecode installed, and if yes, does it print boatloads of info about your system if you run it?
That said, you should try to run the latest development version of flashrom from svn (see http://www.flashrom.org/Downloads for instructions) and paste the output of flashrom -V so we can find out more about your chipset, especially lockdown info and other fun stuff.
Please note that flashing laptops is very risky. Some laptops may turn off during flashing, and then you have to open the laptop and maybe even get a soldering iron to reflash the flash chip externally.
