Intel UEFI Motherboard 2.1 SLIC Modding May Be Possible!

Hey Everyone

Ive got some really good news for owners of Intel motherboards which use the UEFI framework (Newer BIOS). Up until now Intel boards couldnt be modded for SLIC 2.1 but after some hours of scouring the internet I found a post which i translated and am ready to provide to those willing to test.

In theory , this method should work for ALL Intel Motherboards using UEFI. The original poster has fully confirmed this mod working on an Intel DG45ID motherboard , so you should at least give it a go if you have one of these!

Basically , the mod allows you to access the UEFI Terminal Interface and therefore lets you “Inject” a Dell 2.1 SLIC into the bios.

We would like some Intel testers to try out this new mod. Please PM me on the forums if you are interested.

* DIP-8pin package only, NANO BIOS PROGRAMMER support other package with external adaptor. Contact me.

* Some device are not fully tested.

2. Make sure the chip is socket mounted not soldered to the board. If you have a soldered chip you will have to use another bios recovery service and send your whole motherboard. To keep shipping costs low , we just require the chip. See picture below

3. We have no means of testing the reflash as we do not have the motherboards. If the flash does NOT work , we wll supply a full refund , minus the postage costs.

4. We advise caution and suggest that you use some tweezers or a proper PLCC extractor to remove the chip from its socket. The socket itself it very fragile and if you snap it you may aswell call it game over! Remove the chip CAREFULLY. We do not accept any responsibility for this as its not us removing the chip!

More Info can be found on the services page

I am looking forward to the benefits that this service will bring and look forward to helping you all! :D

TheWiz will be joining me once he receives his programmer

New AMD Microcode Discovered

Today while modifying an ASUS BIOS, I discovered a new NCPUCODE.BIN, which contains 28K worth of code instead of the usual 24K. Either this is upcoming code for future CPU releases, or I was missing some from the current series, I’ll see where we get with it.
