It's not safe to do with a downloaded bios file I guess? I don't have windows on my UX31 anymore to extract -> patch -> and apply.

 

I tried doing that way before, the issue was that PMPatch increases the file size for a BIOS update. The max size that an UX32VD takes is 6MB, and anything larger will cause the update utility to deem it as "invalid/corrupt". The best way is to taker dump of your BIOS on Windows using fptw64, PMPatch, and reapply via fptw64.

Would you care to layout how to do the bios mod? I tried and I failed, I'm just lucky I was able to rollback.

 

I already did it on a post few posts back ... What you want to do is extract your BIOS, use PMPAtch, and then re-apply the modded BIOS.

Thank you to everyone for your contributions to this thread.

 It took me a couple days but I was able to get everything up and running again with no issues on my UX31a. 

 

 I guess my next step is to get better battery life, it's pretty dismal right now. Am I able to patch the bios without having access to windows? For those of you who've done it, what has your battery life improvement been like? Are you back up to a couple of hours at least?

 

Battery life for me is about 3-4 hours. I personally use DisableTurboBoost on battery kext (check OSXLatitude), although it increases battery life, it still isn't the 5-6 hours found on Windows. I highly recommend that you do BIOS modding on Windows.

Hi, guys. I have small trouble with UX32A. All seems fine, except sleep (and sometimes shutdown). Last my attemp to sleep completely kill my system (I think bootloder down). What can cause this trouble?

 

If you are on clover, update to 2646 or newer. OsxAptioFix UEFI driver has fixes for sleep. You should have sleep working on Chameleon.
