ME_Cleaner and new CPUs

I noticed the Librem14 is using a Comet Lake/10th Gen CPU. Does ME_Cleaner still work with these newer CPUs?

The me_cleaner code hasn’t been updated since October 2018 and it doesn’t have any info on whether it works with Comet Lake processors or not.

@MrChromebox says that he disabled the ME in the L14 by changing the HAP bit. You have to ask him what tool he used to change the HAP bit.

there are some WIP patches in the PR section of me_cleaner for it to get the HAP bit for CSME 12.x, but the location of the HAP bit is SKU-specific. Same with CSME 14.x (CML).

There is no capability to neuter/clean the ME firmware for anything above ME 11.x currently
