Look at board-status repository. I will not share any "known-good" one
as you need external flasher anyway. Sharing a binary would just
encourage people to attempt stupid things like writing it with partially
locked flash.

flashrom with layout patches works once flash is unlocked. But the only
way to unlock flash is to flash coreboot or slightly modified vendor
firmware. Either requires external flash.
