Thanks, Josh.

Presumably the "BL_SD_boardSupportSD.rom" you mention would be the
"i2c-e280.bin" ROM dump file that I downloaded from the ROM downloads
section of the same page? (My model is the e280)

So this is what I entered, and the response:

    ./e200tool-mac recover i2c-e280.bin
    -bash: ./e200tool-mac: Permission denied

I checked read/write permissions on the file (and even set group to
read/write) but I get the same response. I'm assuming I need
write/execute permissions?
