Does that happen when running flashrom or cros-flash-replace? Could you
paste the exact output from the terminal?

Are you sure that you have logged-in as root to do this?
It's not clearly mentionned in the guide, but the # suggests that these
operations have to be done as root.

I have updated the docs to make this clearer:

That's already fixed with commit:

Thanks for reporting this, I have just updated the docs:

> "cros-firmware-replace":

That's already fixed with commit:

> By the way, shouldn't there be .img extensions after coreboot and ro-frid?

Nope, cros-flash-replace takes the name of the images as specified in
the description file.

Note that all the fixes aren't reflected on the website yet due to the
move to texinfo. It might take some time before the two are back in
