Please note I have not tested flashing anything except a XL2720Z, and while I do own both the Mstar ISP device and the RT809F device, I do NOT have an XL2430T, XL2730Z, XL2735 or XL2540 so I can't offer direct help with anything unless other users have already used and tested things.

Note: Zowie XL2430T is identical to Benq XL2430T in everything but branding. Firmwares are compatible.

I just upgraded the firmware on my 2430T and it worked just fine with your instrucions.
I had to change
Code: Select all
#svn co svn://flashrom.org/flashrom/trunk@1846 flashrom
 ->
svn co https://code.coreboot.org/svn/flashrom/trunk@1846 flashrom


and the command
Code: Select all
sudo ./flashrom -p mstarddc_spi:dev=/dev/i2c-3:49

returned:
Code: Select all
Calibrating delay loop... OK.
Info: Will try to use device /dev/i2c-3 and address 0x49.
Info: WILL reset the device at the end.
Found AMIC flash chip "A25L016" (2048 kB, SPI) on mstarddc_spi.

So I had to change the backup and patch command to:
Code: Select all
sudo ./flashrom -p mstarddc_spi:dev=/dev/i2c-3:49 -c "A25L016" -r backup.bin
# write firmware
sudo ./flashrom -p mstarddc_spi:dev=/dev/i2c-3:49 -c "A25L016" -w firmware.bin


Thought I would post it in case someone runs into the same problems.

PS.: Don't forget to have your monitor turned off.

So this monitor uses an AMIC chip instead of Macronix. Does anyone know if this goes for other models or the Zowie rebrands? I thought someone with an XL2720Z had an AMIC chip too?
