    They are very lucky. I never found a SPI flash in my computers and laptop.
    So Bus Pirate can help me in these situations.

      I was able to fix an HP laptop after an EFI nightmare, last week there is a windows binary for flashrom that works well.

  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
