[REQUEST] Asus ROG Strix GL702ZC BIOS Unlock
#51
Backup you made before you got into this mess possibly yes. How did you make that backup? If with AFU then no,, that's usually only BIOS region.
Is your backup 16MB? If yes, then possibly you can, but first get a new valid full backup with programmer as I mentioned, otherwise you might end up loosing board details (Serial, LAN MAC ID, UUID, DTS Key, Windows activation), if your current backup is not complete and you rely on having that as your only backup.

Do not write with programmer any ".CAP" BIOS files, those must be extracted from the capsule first.

It was done via the win AFU tool utility and is 16mb I did post it on here in ( https://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-R...#pid144786 ) i have a feeling that the way i did the flash with the UEFI flash tool wiped the bios clean so at the very least i hope that that backup has the mac, serial,uuid in it.

as soon as i have the laptop back i will locate the Bios and try to pull a backup to post here as well.

Thanks sir.

Great your board is recovered! Is windows still activated? And, does your LAN still work properly (Ethernet LAN)?

Yes and yes.  Will say it is a pain to get to the bios but very doable.  used the spi programmer 1.31 as the bios number has not list in any of the older builds but it backed up the failed bios then i did a wipe and restored my back up from afu no issues.  Also before i did that i did a compare to the rom you created to test with that I restored in UEFI afu utility and it did not match so i am guessing something was not flashed from that file or it got corrupted in the flash process.  I am still interested in unlock some features and defiantly trying to get later cpu support added via the AMD AGESA if that is even possible.

Lost n Bios what would be the considerations if i wanted to try flashing a similar bios from a Asus motherboard to this laptop i.e. amusing there is a motherboard with the same chipset and all the same built in peripherals minus the rx580 that is on the board what would i need to look out for? i do have a spi programmer and a good know backup of my bios as you know.

I wouldn't know where to begin on suggestions for that. It would be better to just modify your BIOS for this setup

It is a modified ITX B350 motherboard. The RX-580 is soldered directly to what the PCI-E 16x rail would be so that will not be an issue.
In theory it would be possible to flash a ASUS Micro ATX or Mini ITX BIOS to this, but as Lost says above, it would be risky.
However since you have the tools and can just flash back to stock, I say go ahead and explore. It's got 8+2 phase VRM so an overclocked BIOS probably wouldn't hurt it, but keep in mind that desktop ones probably have the safeties off of power delivery and that could cause other issues.

I think the best chance for success is yanking the BIOS off this board if you're feeling edgy.

Being how lazy ASUS is, I wouldn't be too surprised if they're really similar.
