Upgrading your BIOS on linux

      3 Comments on Upgrading your BIOS on linux

It was already quite some time ago that flashrom 0.9.0 was released by the coreboot-project developers, but anyway…

Flashrom is a utility for identifying, reading, writing, verifying and erasing flash chips. Since Fedora already contains flashrom, there is no need to compile it yourself. Simply pull it from the repo:

yum install flashrom

Usage is rather simple. For a list of all flags and options refer to the manpage. To check if you motherboard is supported, have a look at the coreboot wiki.
