[REQUEST] Asus A550JK & K550JK & X550JK BIOS Unlock

Once you've created that, copy all contents from the FPT DOS folder to the root of USB (nothing in folders), and a copy of your original biosreg.bin and the mod biosreg.bin file.

I don't see any Size Mismatch errors there, only Data Mismatch in those images, which is expected since you are comparing mod BIOS with current BIOS contents

Oh well then, I also tried flashing the bios directly from the cmd. And it gave me same error as when I tried to verify it, I quickly flashed the unmodded dump back of course. I guess doing it the DOS way will work. But if the error pops up even in DOS, will I be able to flash the unmodded dump back? I'm too scared to make any mistakes again. Big Grin

Also, another question, can I fix the 15 seconds POST delay? When the laptop returned to me after the shop fixed it, it came to me like that.

Directly from CMD, in windows, if yes, why??? We already confirmed that should not be used

Yes, in DOS you can reflash other dump too, as long as you do not reboot. If you get the same error in DOS, then I will redo the mod, but I think this is a windows related issue, or your BIOS chip is somewhat faulty and not allowing some byte to be erased or written (I doubt the replaced it, probably reprogrammed it in two minutes and sent back to you)

Sounds like they possibly broke the ME FW causing the 15 second delay, we'll have to check that later

Did you order CH341A + SOIC8 test clip cable yet? You should have long ago and it would been there by now, only costs $6 total
Then you wouldn't have any of these issues, or worries

Well, nope. I think just doing it right and stop to ask question first when I'm in doubt is enough. The issue is also that I don't know which one and where to buy it from, my dad also doesn't really trust me doing these kind of things. Sucks to be me. Undecided

Anyway, I'll let you know about the results once I'm done trying the DOS way. Or.. can I do the efi one?

And another question, sorry if I'm asking too much. Will it give me errors when the flash is failed like FPT does? If that's so, it'll be great to know.

Do you need links to buy those, it's only $6 total shipped, surely he'd be OK with that Big Grin Especially if it will save you from having to send the board off to be repaired.
Here - https://www.ebay.com/itm/201316582787

You can do DOS or EFI, up to you.

Stop to ask questions?? Why now, after you went ahead last time on bright red error?
J/K, I know how you feel Big Grin

I decided to go the DOS way, but anyway. I guess I'll just have to run it the normal way? Just like what I did in the CMD in windows?

Also yeah, I don't want to throw money on fixing it. The shipping time of bios flashing tools though, I don't have that much time to wait, I move around back and forth so often. That's also why I'm asking you so much now. Thanks for providing the link still!

Yes, in DOS you use same commands as windows (only FPT.exe instead of FPTw.exe)

If you order now, it will be here as soon as you forget you ordered it (if you ordered way back when I first suggested it would be there already Big Grin)
Order now, then you'll have soon!

Hmn, something interesting happened. When I tried to verify normal unmodded bios dump first. fPT throws up an error "Data verify mismatch found.", what's going on? And when I tried to get it to verify the modded one, it said is can't find the file. I copied it into the USB drive though. Both bios dumps of course. But it apparently can't see it.

Also, whelp, the CH341A programmer also doesn't ship to thailand. Is there other place to buy it from? Like from different seller?
The test clip is the only thing that ships to where I live.

Verify is only going to work right after you dump it, maybe not even then if time/date/any setting or checksum changes/NVRAM variable/CMOS setting etc. General reply about this, no one ever uses nor needs to use the verify function, forget about it, it's not needed for anything we are doing here and is only going to continue your prolonged confusion and uncertainty.

If you are in Thailand I assume you can go across the street to any market that sells computer stuff and find this in person, no need to order online considering where you are.

Also, there are a 1000 other sellers on ebay that will ship to Thailand, search CH341A and find a seller that ships to you. I only gave those two links as some of the cheaper examples.

Go to DOS, dump your BIOS with FPT, then try to flash in the mod BIOS I sent you, if any error take an image to show me, and then reflash the BIOS dump you just created. As mentioned, if it still gives you any error in DOS, I will redo the mod and we'll see if that is the issue, if it's not then it could be you have some faulty bit/bytes on your chip that is not letting you erase or write (Stock would go back fine since it's what's written there already)

Read this page, I've dealt with same issue before, user was fine eventually after having done the flash in DOS instead (posts 76-83)
