Hack Linnar Viik's lawnmower

Lawnmower's immobilizer prevents using the lawmower. Disable the PIN code and claim the device. This job requires some specific skills - use Bus Pirate as SPI bus master to access the Flash chip on the device. First dump the existing firmware as-is. Enter the PIN incorrectly again and attempt to identify which part of the Flash counts the invaid PIN code attempts. Try to reset the counter first.
