NOTE : on the revision v2.0 of the motherboard there was an issue with the decoding of the IO addresses into the LPC bridge of the MCP55 southbridge. It occurred only after booting with coreboot (the factory bios didn't have this issue). It prevented flashrom to access correctly the SPI interface of the IT8716 chip, thus no reflashing was possible after a first burn of coreboot.. (without modchip) This issue was fixed and a full coreboot patch is on the tracks. There is also a workaround for the actual release of coreboot: before using flashrom after booting with coreboot, execute the commands:
  setpci -s 00:01.0 a0.l=70000001
  setpci -s 00:01.0 b0.l=085f0800
