[Guide] How to flash a modded AMI UEFI BIOS

This is AptioV BIOS and the guide is only working for Aptio4. Please mention it on the first post and the topic header, because it can really confuse people with modern boards.
Right now I donät know any reliable method of flashing modified AptioV-based firmwares but a hardware SPI flasher.

Thanks for your statement!

What has your problem to do with the topic of tis thread?
Did you modify the mainboard? If yes, which modules did you modify?
Did you try to flash a modded BIOS? If yes, what happened resp. which message did you get?

I do not know the modded bios run way but the show because you did not receive any message, an official number is too good of a black screen and the fan from the chassis work vsvs everything is going normally, but another does not come any warning system, LED monitor black screen so the screen image does not reflect just that UEFI BIOS I did not get in until now I can not get any warning.

@ blue44:

I am sorry, but I cannot help you.
A successful therapy needs a clear diagnosis, but until now I haven’t even seen an understandable anamnesis.
It doesn’t help, when you continuesly are writing, how long you are already waiting for help.
We need to know: What is your problem? How did it happen? What have you done to solve it?

Fernando, thanks for all the excellent guides.
I’m currently in the process of updating the Intel OROM from to the latest 13 version on my Asrock H87m Pro4

I’ve followed the guide and so far everything is working but I get the message during the flash: "Secure Flash check fail"
However the links in the guide to UEFITool are not working anymore.
How should I proceed?

@ Rouax:
Welcome at Win-RAID Forum!

Before you flash the modded ASRock BIOS, you have to delete the "Capsule" of the BIOS according to my guide.

Download the UBU Tool and unzip it. Then you will find the UefiTool within the UBU directory.

Hi Fernando,
Thanks I see it.
Would you advise the upgrade by the way?

The only effective way to update the modified bios Asus P8H77-M PRO is a combination of three different methods:

1 Removement of the ASRock capsule header by using CodeRush’s "UEFITool"
2 bios downgrade to version v1101 - a prerequisite!
3 Using FTK is a modified BIOS flash file - important after the update you need to use the command poweroff.

tested, proven - it works

My motherboard is "ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE" & BIOS version is "2104".
With "USB flashback", not flashed.
With "afuwin-5.05.04", not flashed.

What should I do?

Sorry, my English is not good.

@ Locker:
Welcome at Win-RAID Forum!

Since your mainboard definitively supports the "USB Flashback" method, I suspect, that you have done something wrong.
Which modules of the BIOS have you modified, how did you proceed while trying to flash the modded BIOS and what exactly happened?

Dieter (alias Fernando)

I’ve updated all modules.
The problem was solved by using the new version of UBU v1.23.1.
I do not know what the problem was.
But it was solved.
I got flashed with "USB Flashback".
