[REQUEST] Unlock menus in Dell Inspiron 15R-5537 Insyde BIOS
#1
Hi, everyone. I would like to request a modded/unlock BIOS for my Dell laptop with InsydeH20 EFI. I downloaded the BIOS file contained in an executable archive (inside the compressed executable is the Insyde flashing utility), opened and modified it with Phoenix Mod Tools v2.50 (also tried with v2.51 b1 & b2). The BIOS executable is named 5537A06.exe

It then generated a modified executable called 5537A06_SLIC.exe. I run it in Windows, the flashing utility starts the procedure, the laptop reboots but then I always get a "Invalid Firmware Image" error before flashing the new BIOS. No alternative is given besides pressing a key to reboot. It doesn't brick the laptop, though.

Is this Insyde BIOS unlockable/moddable? I would like to unlock some advanced menus, like fixed/dynamic graphics mode, or any other useful menu which can be unlocked. I guess the "Main" tab could be replaced. Info:


Make & Model: Dell Inspiron 15R-5537
BIOS type: InsydeH20 EFI
BIOS link: http://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER01774535M/1/5537A06.exe
SLIC: Dell 2.1
BIOS Recovery filename (according to Phoenix SLIC Mod tool): VBW00X64.F?
BIOS Setup menus screenshots are attached

Thanks in advance.

Hi friend,
use this tool to backup your bios from Eeprom, run it as Administrator and upload result.
Your bios use Insyde Secure Flash lock to prevent any modification, so It needs to bypass this one.
I don't know if You find in Menu Tabs unlocked what are U finding, but will try to do and U will learn something too.
Your method is good, better is to extract before the original bos, so if U use 7vZip or winrar U can etract an me.bin file this is bios ! there is only a problem Dell encapsuled and packed it into an utility to flash FPT and there isn't any possibility to extract it pure, so we have to bypass it using FPT directlyon Eeprom !
Then we get a backup of your rom and the modded file It could be used only for your laptop as It will have into all your informations anl probably It will brick Others laptops if used (this is a brief lection).
In this case Pray as always very diffcult with ths UEFI bios !

Well, here is the result: http://www.sendspace.com/file/zmh53x. According to the logs, there seems to be some write protection. Do you you also need the me.bin file? Thanks in advance.

I have the same problem, Donovan unlocked the A07 version but there is some protection I suppose since I'm getting the same error. We share the same bios (5537/5737/3737).

Thanks for the help, mate! But before I flash and risk bricking my laptop, do you know any recovery procedure? I think it's worth knowing that before flashing the modified BIOS. Thanks again.

It will not brick your computer, I've done this many times before and I already know what bricks computers, also, yes, there is a recovery procedure, so be cool

Sure, thanks for being so helpful. Well, I am a layperson regarding this subject, but I guess there's always a risk, even if minimal, when messing with BIOS.

And of course I'm aware you have absolutely no responsibility for any unwanted effect, I just like to be careful. I'll perform the procedure, if I run into any issues, I'll give you reply. Thank you once more.

No success Sad , I guess Insyde Secure Flash is still preventing overwriting the firmware. I took this picture while in DOS environment:

Well, I don't know if there is anything else to try, feel free to keep trying to find a workaround. If there's not, it's fine.

Anyway, I guess you must be very busy, thank you very much for spending some of your time to help me.
