There have been reports of Palm devices which were shipped with a Flash Rom which has an extra protected sector. I am providing this tool to assist in determining if you have a ROM which is compatible with FlashPro or not.
Install the chk_rom.prc file on your Palm device. When you run it, it will provide you a summary of the protection status of the 35 sectors on your Palm device. For each sector, it will list either a '.' for an unprotected sector, or a "*" for a protected one.
Results for a 'Normal' ROM will look like this:
Note that FlashBuilder and old versions of FlashPro (pre 1.06) will not work with Toshiba ROM chips.
The PRC file is available HERE. There is no risk of damage to your device, as this software does not write to your Flash.
