Trying to recover a bad flash on the Foxconn NF4UK8AA-8EKRS mobo, able to boot to a dos disk and tried the AFU860H flash utlility downloaded from the Foxconn site.

eg

AFU860H 49GW1P47.BIN /py/sn/cc/cd/cp/wb

Then loads flash into utility, informs me not to turn off computer, then fails, saying ROM write protected, check jumpers.

Have check all jumpers, still unable to write, I think though this chip can be protected via the CMOS setup options. I wonder therfore if the chip itself has been locked, its a 49LF004A.

If it is will I be able to use a flash utility such as Uniflash with the -UNLOCK option.
