Code

  • The code has been merged into coreboot master:
 $ git clone https://review.coreboot.org/coreboot.git


Building Firmware

Please have a look at Intel_Sandybridge_Build_Tutorial.

Flashing

The flash chip can be a 8MB SOIC8 (Macronix MX25L6436EM2I / MX25L6406EM2I / Winbond W25Q64CVS) or WSON8 (Numonyx M25PX64).


Vendor firmware locks the flash and so you need to flash externally (unless until someone figures out a way around it). Lenovo firmware uses "protected regions" to protect the bootblock.
