Supported mainboards

In general, it is very likely that flashrom works out of the box even if your mainboard is not listed below.

This is a list of mainboards where we have verified that they either do or do not need any special initialization to make flashrom work (given flashrom supports the respective chipset and flash chip), or that they do not yet work at all. If they do not work, support may or may not be added later.

Mainboards which don't appear in the list may or may not work (we don't know, someone has to give it a try). Please report any further verified mainboards on the mailing list.

1 Immediately powers off if you try to hot-plug the chip. However, this does not happen if you use coreboot.
2 Interestingly flashrom does not work when the vendor BIOS is booted, but it does work flawlessly when the machine is booted with coreboot.

Supported laptops/notebooks

In general, flashing laptops is more difficult because laptops

  • often use the flash chip for stuff besides the BIOS,
  • often have special protection stuff which has to be handled by flashrom,
  • often use flash translation circuits which need drivers in flashrom.

IMPORTANT: At this point we recommend to not use flashrom on untested laptops unless you have a means to recover from a flashing that goes wrong (a working backup flash chip and/or good soldering skills).

1 See http://www.coreboot.org/pipermail/coreboot/2009-May/048041.html.
2 It seems the chip (25X40VSIG) is behind some SPI flash translation layer (likely in the EC, the ENE KB3310).
3 The laptop immediately powers off if you try to hot-swap the chip. It's not yet tested if write/erase would work on this laptop.
4 Hangs upon flashrom -V (needs hard power-cycle then).
5 Seems to (partially) work at first, but one block/sector cannot be written which then leaves you with a bricked laptop. Maybe this can be investigated and fixed in software later.
