While trying to get coreboot working on a T410s, in the most recent flash (after multiple
working successful flashes) the clip detached in the middle of the write process. I saw
some error message briefly (I think it mentioned corrupted) before my ssh session
terminated before I could finish reading it.
Now, with a new clip, I can read the chip perfectly, but trying to write/erase leads to
these errors: https://paste.flashrom.org/view.php?id=3156

It is possible to write what is read from the chip (eh cock doesn't match what I
tried to write to it) back onto it without failure.
the T410s is flashable externally without too much of a problem. IIRC
you have to connect both #WP and #HOLD (to VCC potential) though. But
since it worked in the past there are two possibilities I could think
of: you broke the chip by shortening some pins during detachment. I
don't think that's likely though and the 5a you are reading is just
what's supposed to be there, i.e. reading works fine as you say.
It is by far more likely that your setup broke in the meantime. Check
your clip and respective cabling for good connections (measure!).
