I find this is true of a lot of utilities. Why is there not a simple step by
step How to.. ? I have looked over the documentation and now I know how to
make a donation but to hell if anything even gives me a hint as to how I flash
The one link that I can find that says "How can I use flashrom?" looks like:
.TH FLASHROM 8 "Jun 06, 2010"
flashrom \- detect, read, write, verify and erase flash chips
.B flashrom \fR[\fB\-n\fR] [\fB\-V\fR] [\fB\-f\fR] [\fB\-h\fR|\fB\-R\fR|\
\fB\-L\fR|\fB\-z\fR|\fB\-E\fR|\fB\-r\fR <file>|\fB\-w\fR <file>|\
[\fB\-c\fR <chipname>] [\fB\-m\fR [<vendor>:]<board>] \
[\fB\-i\fR <image>] [\fB\-p\fR <programmername>[:<parameters>]]
Does that mean anything to anybody?
Please, I need to flash my ASUS p5b Deluxe motherboard. What do I do?
Download the BIOS version I want to use and burn it to a disc?
Burn flashrom onto the same disc?
I'm sure people put a lot of effort into flashrom, but it is utterly pointless
if nobody can use it or you need a background in computer science, because
that makes it useful to such a small group that whats the point?
