After about 1.5 years, we can announce a fresh flashrom 1.1. Right after branching flashrom 1.0, we merged SPI 4-byte address (4BA) support for most compatible programmers, enabling the use of flash chips bigger than 16MiB. Half a dozen new programmers made it into the release, and we also had some more user-visible changes.

New major user-visible features

  • 4-byte address support for many SPI programmers
  • New option to use a reference file for flash contents (--flash-contents)
  • Layout support for coreboot's FMAP format (--fmap, --fmap-file)
  • BAUD rate selection for Buspirate SPI
  • Support for the ENE Embedded Debug Interface (EDI), probably our first non-jedec SPI target
  • On Intel ME enabled systems, internal flashing is allowed by default
