As we continue to add new unlocked bioses to the forum, I have decided to launch a new beta project for the community. When someone requests a BIOS to be unlocked, it usually means we take the current BIOS (from the OEM) and unhide whatever may be locked. Now we have launched a new project, which the best demostration of today is the RETAIL bios for the Nettle2/Acer boards. The new project is simple, we are trying to match OEM boards to their retail counterpart, and do whatever is neccesary to make the retail work flawlessly on the OEM board. In order to do this, I will soon launch a new page that will keep track of all the boards we are looking into, one’s we are testing, and boards that we have successfully converted to a retail version. So, here’s the catch. We need you! to step up and volunteer to help test the retail bios versions. While we will probably not be able to cover all of the requested boards, we hope to get members to test boards they are interested with people who are familiar with hotflashing or programming their chip after a BIOS failure. I also will need a small (very small) team who will help keep track of current boards that are being looked into. If you are interested, please PM me and I will establish whether you fit the profile. After we get a initial “team” to get the ball rolling, we will still need as many of you as we can to confirm that the retail bioses are working. I already have most of my team assembled, but if you are interested in helping with the project, please PM or email me.
Tthis is a notice from our hosting provider, please plan accordingly!
There will be a scheduled maintenance session between the hours of 1:00 am EST and 4:00 am EST on Monday, January 25th that will affect your hosting service. This three-hour maintenance window will be spent industriously upgrading the hardware on which your website(s) are hosted in order to ensure that you have the best possible system performance, reliability and uptime.
Many of you already know of the issues we have experienced with our recent hardware purchase and we’re not only apologetic about the inconveniences they might have caused you; we’re doing something about it. We’re starting with this upcoming maintenance, which will unfortunately impart some downtime, but finishing with an overhaul that will not incur downtime and will make it so that we can put paragraphs like this one behind us.
