Bus Pirate support in Flashrom project

Posted on Tuesday, December 1st, 2009 in Bus Pirate, scripts by Ian

Flashrom is an open source utility for working with flash storage chips. It supports a bunch of flash chips commonly used on motherboards to hold the system BIOS.

biosflasher (Carl-Daniel Hailfinger) recently added Bus Pirate support to Flashrom. It should be possible to program SPI flash chips using the next release of Flashrom and the Bus Pirate hardware.

The C source code might be helpful for anyone adding Bus Pirate support to another app.

We sent biosflasher a Hackable LED Christmas Ornament in appreciation of all the hard work. Thanks biosflasher!
