Hello !

I need some extra I2S pins on LPC4330, so I'd like to use the SPIFI flash in simple SPI mode (not quad mode).

I made a simple test : unsoldering the flash SIO2 and SIO3 pins on my LPC4330 Xplorer board, and using pullups to the flash's VCC.

It did not boot. So, I resoldered them and it works again.

Is this supported ? I don't care if flash access is a little slower as all my code runs from RAM.
