[UNLOCKED] Unlocking amd-v for Aspire AO725
I'm unable to mod the new version, I haven't the required know-how

If you want it (and you know what improvements are brought from 2.04 and 2.09) you can extract the ZHGBIOS.FD file from the exe (the method is described above in this thread) and submit it at users more skilled than me

Although 2.09 does not have a change log, from what I can tell at least two issues have been fixed. Under Windows 7 I had two problems with the old version. Seemingly at random after resuming from sleep, brightness would be stuck on 100 %, and only a reboot would fix this. In addition, I had random and rare reboots when going to sleep. So far I haven't encountered either with 2.09.

Any problems with flashing from the previous mod or the official version by using InsydeFlash.exe?

No Smile Flashing works perfectly.

Is "InsydeFlash.exe" safe?
Could the unlocked BIOS (v2.09) include some malware code that would damage my computer?

You can trust or modding it yourself Tongue

some days ago I have seen that in the Bios 2.10, on linux (I have tried only linux and only bioses 2.04 and 2.10 ), the Fn+F3 key combination doesn't work.
For a linux user seems to be impossible to switch on/off the wireless through an "hard block". With old 2.04 the Fn+F3 works well

Can you report me if you have the same problem on windows? (if possible with 2.10, or reporting what version using)

I downloaded the mod and run InsydeFlash. BIOS started flashing then got the message:
Flash write error in SMI!
SMI Return Code: 0x25

Bricked my computer. Cannot turn it on. Screen "Acer Explore Beyond Limits" flashes briefly. Cannot load old BIOS (was 2.12 update already). Fn-Esc method doesn't work. Blue light flashes once and nothing happens. USB not recognized.

update: Took me ~2h to unbrick the computer. Running InsydeFlash definitively bricks my computer. installing modded BIOS worked by copying everything on USB and using Fn-Esc method (requires fine finger work and a lot of patience).
