  1. [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    OK, I know you want me to upgrade to 2403 first from ezflash so I don't loose my bios settings, but But will this work: 1. Currently on 2303, scewin the already edited 2303 nvram.txt back with SCEWIN_64 /i /s nvram.txt. 2. Reboot and fpt -d bios.bin to backup current bios. 3. fpt -rewrite -f bios-patched.bin to flash 2303 to PMPatched 2403. 4. Reboot and re-apply settings in bios. Would this work? What would be the problems with doing it this method?

    I am sorry, the this Asus P8Z77-V LX is one I use constantly in production, so this is why I am being cautious, the second I upgrade the Bios to 2403 standard I will not be able to boot Mavericks 10.9.3, so want to be 100% sure I can quickly get it back up and running with a patched 2403. So if I upgrade to 2403 standard boot to windows, dump the nvram.txt, end it to you for edit, you send it back, the next section I am sorry, but am still not sure about, could be please be very simple explanation step by step please, I would be very grateful. Kind regards.

    Ahh, maybe I have misunderstood. I want to goto 2403 patched Bios, but can't as my current patched bios 2303, is protected. So if I flash the nvram.txt file back with SCEWin, I can then flash my Bios suing FTK with a PMPatched 2403 Bios? Or have I misunderstood?
  4. [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    Thats Excellent, many thanks. Can I use the FTK method, which I have used before, posted here: http://biosrepo.wordpress.com/ to flash with a PMPatched 2403 Bios back? Kind regards.
  5. [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    Many thanks for this. File attached. This is the 2203 Bios nvram.txt from my Asus P8Z77-V LX. So on the return of the edited nvram.txt file.... 1. in Windows use SCEWIN_64 /i /s nvram.txt which writes it back to the board. 2. Reboot 3. Boot DOS and use FTK to flash an already patched 2403 bios file to the board. 4. On reboot, reset Bios and enjoy! (Hopefully) Kind regards. nvram.txt
  6. [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    lightServer, that makes sense, so could I just run scewin on my current patched 2203 bios and send you the nvram.txt file for editing, scewin it back to the board, so I have an unlocked patched 2203, then just pmpatch a patched 2403 bios to the board. Would this work, as this wont impede on my workflow?
  7. [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    Hi LightServer, sorry to ask for a procedure again, but I am currently on 2203 modified Bios. Could you quickly list an idiots guide please. Do I update to 2403 standard BIOS first using a standard bios update method in the bios, then boot windows and run the sce, send you the file to kindly modify, then use sce to place your modified bios back, then I need to use pmpatch to patch bios 2403, then use ftk to flash this modified bios back? Just as a backup, when I update my Bios to 2403 and extract nvram.txt, I would like to send it to you so you could correctly edit it, if you kindly could, in the meantime could I install AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext and AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient.kext somehow so I could continue to use my Mavericks 10.9.2, or if something goes wrong and I am stuck on a non patched Bios? Actually, what would be easier for me is to do is run scewin on my current patched 2203 bios and send you the nvram.txt file for editing, scewin it back to the board, so I have an unlocked patched 2203, then just pmpatch a patched 2403 bios to the board. Would this work, as this wont impede on my workflow. UPDATE: just tried to run SCEWIN_64 /o /s nvram.txt /h Hii.db /v /q but get this error: C:\Users\kev\Desktop\SCEWIN>SCEWIN_64 /o /s nvram.txt /h Hii.db /v /q ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Copyright ©2012 American Megatrends, Inc. | | AMISCE Utility.

    Hi LightServer, I am at last going to give this a shot... Is the above still the up-to-date method for an Asus P8Z77-V LX with Bios 2203 wanting to goto Bios version 2403, yes they've just updated it again. Kind regards.
  9. I am trying to adapt the below Applescript code to change the audio channel assignment of a multichannel Quicktime file consisting of video and 8 audio channels from the default 'Mono' to 'Left, Right, Front Left, Front Right, LFE', etc, which can be done manually from 'Show Movie Properties/Audio Settings. The below script successfully changes the audio channels 'name' but I want it to change the 'channels' assignment, but I can't figure out how to get it working. I am on Mavericks with Quicktime Pro 7. on run open (choose file with prompt "Choose source file(s)" with multiple selections allowed) end run on open ff repeat with f in ff remap_sound_tracks_name(f's POSIX path) end repeat end open on remap_sound_tracks_name(f) (* string f : POSIX path of source movie file *) script o on map(n) set mm to {¬ {"Sound Track 1", "Left"}, ¬ {"Sound Track 2", "Right"}, ¬ {"Sound Track 3", "Center"}, ¬ {"Sound Track 4", "LFE Screen"}, ¬ {"Sound Track 5", "Left Surround"}, ¬ {"Sound Track 6", "Right Surround"}, ¬ {"Sound Track 7", "Left Total"}, ¬ {"Sound Track 8", "Right Total"} ¬ } repeat with m in mm if m's item 1 = n then return m's item 2 end repeat return n end map set f to f as POSIX file tell application id "com.apple.quicktimeplayer" -- QuickTime Player 7 set dc to count documents open f repeat until (count documents) > dc delay 0.2 end repeat tell document 1 repeat with t in (get tracks whose audio channel count > 0) set t to t's contents set n to t's name set n1 to my map(n) if n1 ≠ n then set t's name to n1 end repeat if modified then save close end tell end tell end script tell o to run end remap_sound_tracks_name

    So I don't need to update to 2303 standard bios first?
  11. [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    So just to get this straight..... I am currently on BIOS 2203, and want to go to the latest 2303, do I need to goto 2303 stand BIOS first, or just do the below procedure? 1. SCEWIN_64 /o /s nvram.txt /h Hii.db /v /q whilst booted in windows 64 bit to create the nvram.txt file. 2. Send the nvram.txt file to you to do the edits, so I know it's done correct. 3. run SCEWIN_64 /i /s nvram.txt in Windows which writes in back to the bios and removes the current protection on my board. 4. Use PMPatch to patch 2303 BIOS (latest one) 5. Use FTK to flash BIOS to patched 2303. 6. Cross fingers and hope for the best!
  12. [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    Mr. Light Server System, I might take you up on your kind offer and ask you to edit my nvram.txt please? Kind regards.
  13. [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    OK, so I now have SCEWIN (AMISCE Utility. Ver 2.02.1036) is this version OK? So I run SCEWIN_64 /o /s nvram.txt /h Hii.db /v /q whilst booted in windows 64 bit to create the nvram.txt file, SCEWIN for windows 32 bit. Do the edits on the nvram.txt file then run SCEWIN_64 /i /s nvram.txt in Windows which writes in back to the bios and removes the current protection on my board? Then I can update my BIOS to the latest version using FTK, etc? Is this all correct?
  14. [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    Thanks for the kind offer. Where can I get SCEWIN_64 from please? And what exactly is nvram.txt and where does it write it back to, BIOS, board?
  15. [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    Hi, thanks for the info, but I have a couple of questions: 1. How do I create the nvram.txt? 2. Where do you run SCEWIN_64, dos, linux, etc? As I don't want to brick my motherboard, could you do an idiots guide please?
