flashing in-system (ISP) is sometimes a very delicate procedure. How
and if it will work, depends on many things: 1. is the board designed
for ISP; if, follow the manual; if not 2. how do you power the flash
chip? through the board's regular power supply (strongly advised)? or
through the ch341a (discouraged unless you know exactly what you are
doing)? 3. are all input pins of the flash chip in a defined state?
(e.g. don't forget /HOLD and /WP). See also [1] and [2].

Regarding ISP, the board the chip is soldered to matters more than the
chip. What board is it?

Hope that helps,
