Summary: Universal flash programming utility
Description: 
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.
