[Unlocked] Unlocking acer aspire m7720
#21
Well, I believe that just flashing my modded bios will be fine going over the newer version. If you want it to be the newer version, then you can make a backup of your bios in afudos or winflash, and then upload the image here.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my BIOS, TheWiz.

I managed to get a hold of AFUWIN (using 64 bit version) and backed up my BIOS. I have attached my BIOS .rom and AFUWIN program here.

Additionally, I was wondering how to use your modded BIOS as I have never flashed a modded BIOS before (only flashed those from the OEM).

Do I just open AFUWIN (64 bit for me, since I am on Windows 7 64 bit), click on "Open", select your modded BIOS and then click on the "Flash" button? Do correct me if I am wrong...


EDIT: The attachments in this post disappeared for some reason... Anyway, I'm re-attaching them in this same post.

Nice, ill take a look at this ASAP. To flash, make a bootable usb with the dos image, and then use afuwin.

Here's the stuff to set up the usb:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1525839/Programs/AFU.exe
(Flash program)
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1525839/Programs...0Drive.exe
(make USB bootable)
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1525839/Programs...20Disk.zip
(DOS Startup Disk Image)

Then, when you want to flash, copy the modded bios to the usb.

at dos type: afu nameofbios.rom

And foolow the instructions.

Ah, that means I can't just use AFUWIN to flash the modded BIOS when I am still in my OS? I'll get the bootable USB etc set up then.

Thanks for your reply Smile

Every time I flashed I was in my OS. I never used a bootable USB.
I am not saying this always works, just saying you might not need a bootable usb.

Flashing from an OS works. Its just less reliable than flashing using bootable usb stick/cd/floppy

Oh, alright then. Thanks Flame and 1234s282 for clearing that up for me Smile

EDIT: TheWiz mentioned "at dos type: afu nameofbios.rom". Does that mean I need to copy the downloaded AFU.exe from his link into the USB drive (after formatting with DOS image)? If so, where do I place it? In the USB root together with the modded bios .rom, yes?

Thanks, TheWiz. I have another quick question though(sorry for all the questions, by the way..). After formatting with the DOS image, my USB drive is empty. Is it supposed to be like this or is the USB drive supposed to contain some additional files after the format (I was thinking there would have been some files in there since I formatted it with the DOS image in the "Windows 98 Startup Disk")?

There are three files the program takes from the image, the three files neccesary to start dos. Because they are considered system files, theyre hidden, and youll see them if you unhide hidden os files. So yeah, it shld be blank if files are hidden.
