Hi All,
I have successfully  PROBE READ  WRITE  and   ERASE (??)
on my laptop "acer aspire 1520"

The only bug that I get is an error when
I'm ERASEing
(but  when I read the erased flash I get only 0xFF bytes
and I can write again)

root at stawel-laptop:~/bios/inny# flashrom -E
Calibrating delay loop... OK.
No coreboot table found.
Found chipset "VIA VT8235", enabling flash write... OK.
Found chip "Winbond W39V040A" (512 KB) at physical address 0xfff80000.
This flash part has status UNTESTED for operations: PROBE READ ERASE WRITE
Please email a report to flashrom at coreboot.org if any of the above
work correctly for you with this flash part. Please include the full output
from the program, including chipset found. Thank you for your help!
Erasing flash chip... FAILED!
ERROR at 0x00080000: Expected=0xff, Read=0x00
root at stawel-laptop:~/bios/inny#
