Just to prove I'm not full of it. This is a KCMA-D8 mainboard I'm flashing for a customer. Socketed flash. Libreboot supports it.

The customer wants 16MiB chip but I couldn't find DIP8, so I used a SOIC8 on a 208mil SOP8 to DIP8 adapter and 2.54mm headers.

Here you see the original flash chip, a 2MiB winbond chip. It's DIP8. I removed it, and inserted the 16MiB (also a winbond chip) but on the adapter board with the 2.54mm headers pins.
