You are correct in that the eeprom is the fault here and reprogramming may take care of the issue. Prying the reprogamming data out of Micron's hands would be a miracle, hehe. I do not believe any memory manufacturer would release any programming data. Internal confidentiality you know. I know it is hard to believe but it would be better to just scrap the module and drive on. The eeprom is not a flashable chip at least not at a user level. There is a certain level of risk when flashing them at a manufacturers level and it is better to understand that it is the eeprom and buy a new one.
BTW: thank you for the welcome. I hope I can help to shed so light in some areas.
