[coreboot] Can you please send me your Intel ME firmware dump?

I believe that the SSIDs aren’t stored in the BIOS ROM. Regardless of that, I managed to reverse-engineer a BIOS update package for my own laptop and managed to extract the MEI firmware.

Thanks for the help everyone!

Also, IIRC, the network drivers communicate with the ME (on some, if not all versions of the ME) so there can be personal data (network SSIDs) saved in your BIOS ROM.  If you don't want these to be public, maybe you don't want to post your ME binary.

I could never send you anything extracted from MY flash chip, in order
not to violate copyright and similar laws,

but I could help you to resolve issues you met when dumping your own
flash chip.

Could you describe your issues about spi flash dumping?
