I just want to erase my flash memories to stop load any image from there.
In Vivado's Hardware Manager (after selecting and adding the proper flash device) I can select "program configuration device", where I can un-check the programming and verification option. But in this case, the programming file is required also, which is non-sense. (Should I generate any programming image to erase the flash???)

The tool asks for a config image, read the size of this image and then erase necessary part of the flash. Here it cannot simply erase the whole flash.
So here yes you will need a config image.

Thanks, you're right. The image size is needed to erase proper size. But I think it is an overhead to get a flash image just for the size to erase...
