Flashing

T520 has a ST / numonyx M25PX64VG 8 MiB flash chip in a VDFPN8 package.

All Battery's and the Power-supply must be disconnected before flashing.

Next to the flash chip is a connector solder place "J100" where it is connected to.

Flash layout: FLREG0: 0x00000000

 Flash Region 0 (Flash Descriptor): 00000000 - 00000fff 

FLREG1: 0x07ff0500

 Flash Region 1 (BIOS): 00500000 - 007fffff 

FLREG2: 0x04ff0003

 Flash Region 2 (Intel ME): 00003000 - 004fffff 

FLREG3: 0x00020001

 Flash Region 3 (GbE): 00001000 - 00002fff 

FLREG4: 0x00000fff

 Flash Region 4 (Platform Data): 00fff000 - 00000fff (unused)


Vendor firmware locks the flash and so you need to flash externally (unless until someone figures out a way around it).
