bad news! flash write enable is not working! :-(

In the datasheet said pins TBL# (pin 8) and WP# (7) need go to high to
enable flash erasing/writing, but enable_flash_write() on vt8235 is
not activating it (I verifyied these pins using oscilloscope).

Then enable_flash_write from vt8235 is not working on vt8237!

Sure, but I think the problem is because enable_flash_write() is not
unprotecting flash (at hardware)  to erase.

Another idea to solve it?
