Change Logs

Version: 1.0-bp150.1.3
* Wed Jan 03 2018
- Update to version 1.0
  * Support layouts for read and erase commands
  * New command line switch --noverify-all (-N) allows flashing of
    individual regions without reading the whole flash chip
    (particular useful with locked down Intel ME firmware)
  * New command line switch --ifd to read the layout from an
    Intel Firmware Descriptor on flash
  * We got rid of the delay-loop calibration (if the OS provides an
    accurate timer through clock_gettime())
  * Reading speed of USB programmers should have increased (reading
    bigger chunks at once, we reduce the overhead)
  * Support Intel 100 series PCHs (Sunrise Point, coupled with
    Skylake and Kaby Lake) and C620 series PCHs (Lewisburg paired
    with Workstation/Server versions of the former)
  * New programmers
    + Intel 100 series / C620 series PCHs
    + Intel I210 NICs (EEPROM and SPI)
    + AMD Merlin Falcon (FP4)

  * Allow to link flashrom statically (with make CONFIG_STATIC=yes)
  * Ease debugging of build problems with libraries
  * Ignore 0x00 as a flash chip manufacturer ID in the generic
    match to avoid ambiguous messages
  * Various improvements for serprog-based programmers
  * Add support for libftdi1
  * Add infrastructure for libusb1 and use it for new programmers
  * Rigorously check integrity of I/O stream data
  * Add make parameters for easier disabling/enabling of various
    classes of programmers
* Fri Apr 03 2015
- Update to 0.9.8
  * A bunch of newly supported architectures: ARM 64bit,
    big-endian ARM, PowerPC 64bit, SPARC.
  * Better support for AMD chipsets in general (speed selection,
    more conservative defaults etc.).
  * Add new programmer support:
  * AMD Yangtze's SPI controller (found in Kabini and Tamesh) as
    well as the one in Bolton FCHs (A78, A88X, A77E).
  * Intel Silvermont chipsets (Bay Trail, Rangeley and Avoton) and
    Wildcat Point (for Broadwell).
  * ITE IT8212F parallel programmer as it8212 (found on PCI SATA
    RAID controllers).
  * VIA VT6421A LPC programmer as atavia (found on PCI SATA
  * EEPROMs on Intel network cards based on the 82580 NIC
  * Intel 82599 10 GbE NICs boot PROMs (part of nicintel_spi).
  * Microchip PICkit 2
  * MSTAR IC ISP protocol (not compiled in by default). Rewrites the
    firmware of your screen over VGA/DVI(!).
  * Extension of the rayer_spi module to supported various similar
    devices (Altera ByteBlasterMV, Atmel STK200/300, Wiggler LPT).
  * Switching betweens chips on boards with GIGABYTE's DualBIOS
    (using the dualbiosindex programmer parameter).
  * Enable fwh_idsel parameter for C-ICH and ICH2/3/4/5 chipsets.
  * Finer-grained display of support status used for flash chip
    operations, chipsets, mainboards and programmers (new states:
    configuration-dependent, not applicable).
