Note that only the top 64kb of the flash chip is locked now.
But yes - it could certainly be controlled a jumper.

Correct. If there is 0 ohm between the middle pin of that jumper and
pin 8, move the jumper and try running flashrom again.
To really make sure it's good to verify that voltage between pins 16
and 8 actually changes when you disconnect that jumper.
