Hey Anders, thanks for the reply.

Good to hear that progress is being made =] I should have some free
time available in the coming summer holidays, so I'll try to help out

Regarding the rom chip, I got its number (HY29F002TC-90). I'll contact
the flashrom developers about support for it.

Remove the AMI BIOS lable from the rom chip and read the fist number on the actual chip, should be some thing similar to these http://www.flashrom.org/Supported_hardware. You can find the flashrom developers at freenode.net #flashrom, or flashrom at flashrom.org.
