[REQUEST] ASUS N56VZ BIOS Unlock
#21
You had to extract it with 7zip, here I did it for you and then I made it a zip (attached).

Just extract AFUDOS241.exe and use that to flash your modded bios using premas command:
afudos /idown.rom /pbnc /n [name of BIOS file]

Yeah but you provided several modded bios files. I don't know which one i should flash.

One last thing. Since the Winflash doesn't recognize the file, would there be any chance of bricking the laptop?

Yes I think there is a chance you could brick it.

I would think that the version of amibcp we have is not updated to support your bios and we may have to wait for a new leak of amibcp.

If you still want to try to flash a bios, just go for one that you have modded yourself, if that can't be flashed then I really don't see a solution.

Not currently active.

amibcp 4.53 works on our BIOS.

I did find a flash tool that successfully flashed.
If you use fpt from the flash toolkit (FTK), you can flash it manually.
FTK google translate

Make sure the bios you flash has had the capsule stripped (the ASUS site has the capsule). I don't think fpt can handle it being there.
I did that by simply backing up my existing BIOS, as that gives you a clean file to start with.

Backing up:

fpt -d backup.rom -BIOS

If you don't specify -BIOS, it will fail to backup, since we can't dump or rewrite the intel ME firmware. Setting Me FW Image Re-Flash to enabled might allow this (under PCH-FW Configuration).

To flash the BIOS,

fpt -f flash.rom -BIOS

POWER OFF after you flash. It won't take effect until you do (not even a restart) due to the EFI quick boot feature keeping the old BIOS in RAM.


I was unable to get the chipset option to show up, however. I tried every option, but no dice so far. Everything else seems to show. I've attached my modded BIOS, where I exposed most of the helpful options in advanced.

Anyone have ideas on how to get chipset to show up?

Nice work!

Pretty sure nobody has figured out to get the chipset to show up with an aptio bios yet, but still it's a good result, +rep.

I can confirm that the modded bios works well. Thanks Smile

But I would ask if is possible to add some features like cpu/gpu overclock/underclock and also could be nice if is possible to shut down the discrete graphic card (the nvidia GT650m)......

Anyway thanks for the unlocked bios ^^

Hello Smile I, and some people on Russian forum (http://ukrainianiphone.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=24683&st=360) created hackintosh for n56/n76.
Now we sent request to asus, for add function to disable intel hd4000 in bios. But i think they don't add it. Can you add this function?
