Need Help for BIOS reflash - lenovo ideapad 330s-14ikb

Dump the firmware with the programmer, as chinobino wrote, make two dumps, they should give a structure in UEFIToolNE and have to be a 100% identical. Don’t write anything.

Hi @chinobino I also have the Lenovo Ideapad 330s-15IKB 81F5 model with the BIOS version 7SCN26WW that I think was the original it came with when I bought it.
I never tried upgrading for fear of bricking my notebook, as I’ve read that the upgrade failed for various people and recovering or reverting back from this is very difficult.
Do you think the upgrade to BIOS 7SCN36WW is risky? Worth the risk or not?
Everything works perfect on the notebook now and I’d hate to break something then waste time trying to fix what I broke.

@gnat_leader Hi, I would recommend that you stay with the current BIOS if you are not having any problems as the newer BIOS don’t add any new features.
