LXer: BIOS flashing for Linux users now in the wild

Published at LXer:

Since the release of its previous version in May 2009, at least 30 additional flash chip families and half a dozen variants for each family are now being supported by Flashrom. Flashrom allows users to perform BIOS, EFI, coreboot, or firmware flashes without having to undergo sophisticated boot procedures that require bootable floppy disks/CD-ROMs or even opening the computer's casing. We first featured flashrom here in an article entitled BIOS flashing comes to Linux at last. If you have no idea what flashrom is, that article can help you grasp the basics.
