no, it wasn't the first time that i soldered, but i don't often solder.

according to the flashrom probing output, it works.
also the response of the computer on trying to boot with the emtpy bios-chip 
is a good sign, that it works how it should.

according to Uwe Hermann the write function in current svn version is a NULL 
function, and not implemented right now.
i've to less knowledge in programming and c, to implement that function, but 
if testers were needed, i'll do it, because i can switch back to the original 
bios chip easily.
