was it intentional that you only sent the data to me? It would be great to have that data on the list. If possible, please forward your mail to the list so other developers can help as well.

Thanks for getting back to me. David Hendricks has been giving me some direction also, but has kind of exhausted his ideas. He suggested that I try something around revision 2000, because he thought that he was able to flash an ARIMA board successfully with that version. I also tried revision 2341 which had references in the Changelog to ARIMA. Turns out the results were identical. The results of rev 2000/2341 is that it flashes about 99% of the locations on the PLCC correctly. Below I will give you some output from the flashrom -w command. Also, I've included a comparison between the file I used to write to the flash chip and a new file that I reread from the flashed chip.
I analyzed the output and the only difference is that the new flashrom version detects the problem and the old version ignores it...
First I will give you what you wanted to know. The chip was originally factory bios. It was either flashed to LinuxBios with lbflash or with a standalone benchtop flasher. I'm trying to flash the chip back to factory bios.
Of course I'd prefer it if you tried to flash coreboot (new name of LinuxBIOS) to these boards, but that's your choice. Anyway, you said you have the factory BIOS around somewhere. Is it the one at http://flextronics.com/arima/Server/Download/Download/HDAMA189.zip ?

Hmm ok. I think we have enough docs to iterate through all possible board enables. How many of these boards do you have (in case we trash the ROM of one of them)?
