I am trying to get flashrom work with my MB, a PM800, it use a VIA
VT8235 0430CE 23811913461 chipset.

Flashrom don't detect this chipset, because it IS NOT 0x1106:0x3177 as
expected by flash_enable.c, then I add 0x1106:0x3227 (VT8235 ISA
Bridge of my board) to it call "enable_flash_vt8235".

When I executed it at first time I received this warning:

"Enabling flash write on VT8235...tried to set 0x44 to 0x54 on VT8235
failed (WARNING ONLY)"

BUT every time I execute it now I just receive:
"Enabling flash write on VT8235...OK"

I want your opinion, is flashrom detecting my chipset or no?

Best regards,
