Reading and Writing an SPI EEPROM device?

If I have the logic analyzer attached, in-circuit, to my SPI EEPROM (AT25080) monitoring my controllers SPI memory accesses, and if I know my controller is not accessing the device (no CS, CLK, DI/DO - lets assume I can make these lines go hi-z and I'm using an emulator to breakpoint my software), can I setup the Saleae logic analyzer to read/write the SPI device so I can verify my hardware/software can read/write the device correctly? The other benefit I can get form this, if I can write my EEPROM, I can insert faulted data then resume my software to validate fault handling. Thoughts?

    Unfortunately our current hardware doesn't support data output.

    Our friend Jonathan just came out with this device that can record and play back SPI, I2C, etc: (https://binho.io/). You might be able to utilize this to talk to your SPI EEPROM.

    Data output is something we are considering for our next-gen hardware.
