What options do I have to read out flash

Hello everyone,

I finally managed to connect my NAND Flash with my Bus Pirate v4 and my next and final step that I would like to do is reading out the Flash.
Well, I thought I could just use flashrom to do so but apparently the tool doesn't support the device that I am working with.
I get the following output:
Code: [Select]
Found chip "Generic unknown SPI chip (RDID)" (0 KB, SPI) at physical address 0x0.
===
This flash part has status NOT WORKING for operations: PROBE READ ERASE WRITE

My question is, are there any other tools that I can use to dump the Flash?

I am pretty new to this, this is probably a pretty basic question I guess, the problem is every ressource that I can find involves flashrom to read out the Flash.

Hi Ramazuri.
Surely you can use any programmer that can handle the chip you are dealing with.
By the way, am I pushy if I ask what exactly is that chip?

Be seeing you.

Hello USBEprom,

I am dealing with a GD5F1GQ4RCYIG from GigaDevice.
