Zerocat Chipflasher  v0.4.3 (board-edition-1)
Flash free firmware to BIOS chips, kick the Manageability Engine.
Supported Devices

It is a big difference whether you attach a single SPI flash chip to the chipflasher or whether you connect a chip which is soldered onto a sysboard. In the latter case, you will have to test a real life condition - just developing according to chip’s datasheet is not sufficient. Please compare to Power Profiles.

Todo:
For some chips, the block protection mechanism is not fully supported.
Note
We focus on Standard-SPI. Dual-SPI or Quad-SPI is not implemented.

Successfully Tested Sysboards

Not yet supported, but on the TODO list

These laptops are of special interest, because they have the same CPU-Chipset combination (Core Duo or Core2Duo and i945 Northbrigde) as the ThinkPad X60, which is known to lack the Manageability Engine completely. Unfortunately, these machines are not yet supported by coreboot.
