Latest flashrom binaries

Latest flashrom binary for Windows (32bit):
http://http://ra.openbios.org/~idwer/flashrom/flashrom_mingw_r1435.exe
This version also has support for plain ft2232-based flashers and thus it needs libusb and libftdi on your WIndows machine.
Download it, then rename it to flashrom.exe for convenience, then use it as follows:
Code: [Select]
flashrom.exe -p buspirate_spi

User rzavaleta here in this forum built the latest flashrom binary for Windows (32bit) as well:
http://http://dangerousprototypes.com/forum/download/file.php?id=4947
Both Windows builds have the same requirements.

DOS binaries are unavailable due to missing FTDI drivers for that platform.

Binaries for other platforms will be linked here soon...
If you have any flashrom problems, please mail flashrom@flashrom.org and include "Bus Pirate" in the subject line. As an alternative, you can send me a private message.
It is recommended to use at least flashrom 0.9.2 or later, and latest flashrom from svn if you want a 3x speedup.

Uh oh. Seems the posted binaries use the old (slow) command set instead of the flashrom specific command set.
Can you wait a few days so I can get a better overview of the current state of Bus Pirate support in flashrom and then post updated binaries? Thanks!

I don't really see support for OSX 10.5/10.6/10.7?  I looked over the readme file from the source package and it sais there is support but I have to get the DirectIO driver and when I go to the link I get someones webpage with Pictures.

Edited 9-23-11:

I have to assume I need the MAC OSX developer tools to compile the source and create a DMG installer.  Have not attempted yet.
