Hi coreboot list, I have been attempting to use a raspberry pi for spi flashing and when I use the 3.3v pin the raspberry pi doesn't power up as the chip draws too much power through the 3.3v pin for the raspberry pi to also run. I am powering the RPi through micro-USB, either connected to wall outlet or another computer.
What is your recommended method for powering the chip and RPi? Looking online  some folks recommend using laptop AC adapter + wake-on-lan (and not using the VCC/3.3v pin), but I'm not sure that's a dependable strategy because I don't know if coreboot has WoL functionality for the x230 should I want to reflash the chip . Advice/thoughts appreciated, and let me know if there's a better place to ask this question. FYI this is the chip I am trying to program:  Thanks, Michael  https://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-REQUEST-Lenovo-Thinkpad-X230-Whitelist-removal?pid=91134#pid91134  https://www.coreboot.org/Board:lenovo/x230  http://www.zlgmcu.com/mxic/pdf/NOR_Flash_c/MX25L3206E_DS_EN.pdf -- Michael Carbone Qubes OS | https://www.qubes-os.org @QubesOS <https://www.twitter.com/QubesOS> PGP fingerprint: D3D8 BEBF ECE8 91AC 46A7 30DE 63FC 4D26 84A7 33B4
