Chipflasher

The Chipflasher Project offers three different versions. In 2018, the one of tag board-edition-1 has been certified to respect users’ freedom by the FSF, whereas the tip of branch master intends to maintain users’ freedom just the same but should be more up-to-date. And last but not least, branch flashrom-interface has been set up to enrich the chipflasher with an interface for the widely used flashrom utility.
