Identify, read, write, erase, and verify BIOS/ROM/flash chips

flashrom is a tool for identifying, reading, writing, verifying and erasing flash chips. It's often used to flash BIOS/EFI/coreboot/firmware/optionROM images in-system using a supported mainboard, but it also supports flashing of network cards (NICs), SATA controller cards, and other external devices which can program flash chips.

It supports a wide range of DIP32, PLCC32, DIP8, SO8/SOIC8, TSOP32/40/48, and BGA chips, which use various protocols such as LPC, FWH, parallel flash, or SPI.

The tool can be used to flash BIOS/firmware images for example -- be it proprietary BIOS images or coreboot (previously known as LinuxBIOS) images.

It can also be used to read the current existing BIOS/firmware from a flash chip.

Currently supported programmers include:

  * internal (default, for in-system flashing in the mainboard)
  * dummy (virtual programmer for testing flashrom)
  * nic3com (for flash ROMs on 3COM network cards)
  * nicrealtek (for flash ROMs on Realtek network cards)
  * nicsmc1211 (for flash ROMs on RTL8139-compatible SMC2 network cards)
  * nicnatsemi (for flash ROMs on National Semiconductor DP838* network cards)
  * nicintel (for parallel flash ROMs on Intel 10/100Mbit network cards)
  * nicintel_spi (for SPI flash ROMs on Intel Gigabit network cards)
  * gfxnvidia (for flash ROMs on NVIDIA graphics cards)
  * drkaiser (for flash ROMs on Dr. Kaiser PC-Waechter PCI cards)
  * satasii (for flash ROMs on Silicon Image SATA/IDE controllers)
  * satamv (for flash ROMs on Marvell SATA controllers)
  * atahpt (for flash ROMs on Highpoint ATA/RAID controllers)
  * ft2232_spi (for SPI flash ROMs attached to an FT2232/FT4232H
    family based USB SPI programmer), including the DLP Design DLP-USB1232H,
    FTDI FT2232H Mini-Module, FTDI FT4232H Mini-Module, openbiosprog-spi,
    Amontec JTAGkey/JTAGkey-tiny/JTAGkey-2, Olimex ARM-USB-TINY/-H,
    Olimex ARM-USB-OCD/-H, TIAO USB Multi-Protocol Adapter (TUMPA),
    GOEPEL PicoTAP, and FIC OpenMoko Neo1973 Debug board.
  * serprog (for flash ROMs attached to a programmer speaking serprog),
    including AVR flasher by Urja Rannikko, AVR flasher by eightdot,
    Arduino Mega flasher by fritz, InSystemFlasher by Juhana Helovuo,
    and atmegaXXu2-flasher by Stefan Tauner.
  * buspirate_spi (for SPI flash ROMs attached to a Bus Pirate)
  * dediprog (for SPI flash ROMs attached to a Dediprog SF100)
  * rayer_spi (for SPI flash ROMs attached to a RayeR parport based programmer)
  * pony_spi (for SPI flash ROMs attached to a SI-Prog serial port
    bitbanging adapter)
  * ogp_spi (for SPI flash ROMs on Open Graphics Project graphics card)
  * linux_spi (for SPI flash ROMs accessible via /dev/spidevX.Y on Linux)
