Well, the ultimate method is to open it up and have a look. The "bad" chip
is a SST37VF020.

If you have it in, you'll need the UART boot mod (and the serial mod) to
flash it. The box certainly won't start with a blank chip, but with the above
the trick is possible.

Or you need to pre-program the chip outside with professional gear.
