[flashrom] Windows Help

The link on the flashrom page takes me to here:  http://ra.openbios.org/~idwer/flashrom/mingw/

The windows flashrom exe on that page is from 2014 so I assume that is very old.  Where do I download version 0.9.9?

There is a way to alias a baud in the FTDI drivers so that when you set the baud to 300 for instance, it is actually 2000000.  I tried this, and it didn’t work in flashrom but I did verify that the port is actually being set to 2000000 and data is being send to the Arduino at 2000000.

You should use the newest flashrom (0.9.9), flashrom has supported arbitrary baudrates (anything the driver supports) on windows since svn revision 1909... (it is then also possible to omit specifying the baudrate... IIRC the result is that the one selected in device manager would be used...).
