You found a bug.
If you send your patch with a sign-off
the fix will be added with you as primary author.
Mine is not the only chip flashrom does that with:
Which is OK. Some flash chip data sheets specifiy to use
0x555, 0x2AA, 0x555
For some reason, having FEATURE_ADDR_2AA set makes
jedec.c screw up the
It's the intended effect of that FEATURE. It means that the chip it
this feature needs 0555/02AA/0555 instead of 5555/2AAA/5555. When we
unified chip drivers, it seems we didn't read datasheet thouroughly
enough, although we worked quite carefully on it, and got this chip
wrong. We are very sorry for the time you wasted on that.
I think we were in IRC contact. For some of us, finding this mistake
would have been a couple-of-minute jobs (can be seen from flashrom -V
output), so having asked about this undetected chip might have saved you
hours of debugging.
I now have my chip programmed, and I didn't have
to write an application
from scratch to do it. If it had gone smoother, I'd profess thanks, but
in my sleep-deprived state I think all you are going get out of me is a
grunt and a respectful nod :)
But *we* do need to thank you for reporting the wrong
