<div>Is there a way by which I can use the external programmer to flash the complete chip at once. I mean There is the Linux BIOS image which includes the kernel and then there is the root file system and a fall back image. So that I can have a single file which I can generate and distribute.
<div>Have this been done before ?</div>

<br><br></div>Yep, you can use an external programmer, or you can use some other board<br>that's compatible with flashrom and your flash chip, by hot swapping the<br>flash chips.<br><font color="#888888"><br>-Corey<br>
