Do you need a BIOS dump right? I’ve tryied to use the FPTW.exe that I have here and it’s saying “unsuported plataform”, I guess I need a newer version of it too…

Yes. Use BACKUP_Tools. This is a set of different programs including many version of FPTW which makes it quite universal.

@Vernnon
BIOS mod: Vernnon!.zip. Extract the contents of the archive to a separate folder.
1. Run 'SET VARS.bat" and reboot.
2. Run “FLASH.bat”.


Did you saved the settings this time? AHAHAHAHAH

Flashed here without sucess but there is no 2º Advanced options available here:

Is your friend using BIOS in a language other than English? I changed some text lines to make the new menus appear correctly, but I only did it for English.
P.S. Check the top lines in the “Principal” tab.

Same thing. We changed the language, rebooted and entered in the setup again, no second advanced tab:

Its there.

Hummm it’s different from the other that i saw, look at this:



you rule again! thankyou so much… I’m sending you a PM abou a private thing…

Yes and it must be names of these menu entries will look differently if you change the language back to portugues. I can fix it if you like.

Don’t worry about it, the only reason that i helped to my friend is to enable the XMP profile in the XPG memory…we done this too, now the XMP profile is working very well!

I followed the same guide as my friend told me that it worked for him with the same model of laptop as mine, but I suddenly have a UEFI password.
Is there anything I can do to remove this? Lol

To be clear, I ran the same files in Vernnon!.zip, and it seems to have changed the language and also added a supervisor password :confused:

Edit: I have used this to reset the password, and the unlocked firmware works perfectly!
