Programming the Flash gives Sector Protection Error

We have a board with the P1022 processor and we had a Cypress (formerly spansion) chip S29GL01GP11TFIR1 for the flash. But that has been obsoleted now and we had to replace it with S29GL01GT10TF1010 chip. 

When we trying put the u-boot.bin file using codewarrior we get the following error. 

Error: Program with Verify failed. Flash driver reports the following error(s): Sector Protection Error
Error: Program with Verify failed. Flash driver reports the following error(s): Sector Protection Error

 

One thing we do see is that the only device listed under "Add Device" is S29GL01GP (We also tried the S29GL01GP-Simics, but for our case 64Mx16X2 it is the same in both the xml files which is amd16x2.elf) , we do not see a S29GL01GT. 

Is there an elf file for this chip ? 

 

The erase, dump (read operation) all seems to work fine and goes thru sucessfully. 

 

I have also attached the Diagnose for both the old flash(S29GL01GP11TFIR1) and the new flash(S29GL01GT10TF1010) and attached it. 

 

Please let me know if you need any more information. 

 

Thank you
