I'm not sure I got that right -- I'm currently preparing a patch for
your Lanparty UT NF4 Ultra-D.

Whether or not you flash your chip in that board, or in another
supported board (by flashrom), or in some external programmer doesn't
matter; you'll have to insert the flashed chip with coreboot into
the Lanparty UT NF4 Ultra-D either way, though.

The chip itself, yes. This is not sufficient though, there could be
mainboard-specific hacking required for flashrom to work, and you cannot
find out unless you try writing an image on a chip _in_ that board.

IMPORTANT: Only do that with an _empty_ or otherwise unused ROM chip,
as this may "break" your chip if it does _not_ work properly.
