Hi to all,
today I took care of my Mom’s notebook (clean install, ME update). It’s an ASUS R700VJ with BIOS K45VM-AS.230 which I downloaded and modded successfully by using UBU. The problem is flashing it back: as the newest BIOS was already installed the EZ-Flash tool does not do it. I get the error that the build date is too old (also with untouched BIOS) so I guess flashing same version is not possible with that tool. I also made a backup of the BIOS region with Intel’s FPT (fpt -bios -d biosbck.bin) and used the biosbck.bin file for modding with UBU. But when I try to flash back the modded file with FPT (fpt -bios -f biosbck.bin) the verification after the flash procedure fails and after a restart nothing has changed. I don’t know what else to do…
Thanks in advance hanson
Hi to all,
Use AMISCE to disable BIOS Lock and flashing BIOS region ith FPT will not fail.
Thanks but is not working. I says no access to the Hii.db or something like that
You could try AFU /GAN method described here, but it’s very risky on notebooks and may lead to bricked BIOS easily.
Just drop it, if this PC is not meant for experiments. I still can’t the need to update anything if old versions are working normally…
I had to change bios language back to english. Had it set to german before.
After that all correct locks were in nvram.txt.
