bios hack to bypass wireless whitelist

(the hack is the F9 hex code change)

 

this is only for amd machines

 

if you have a intel processor don't use this!!

 

tested on a hp dv6730ep with a amd turion processor

 

howto check if it will work for you

 

check in this page if your computer use the same bios:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwar...093&lang=en

 

i think this bios works for all dv6700 amd based processor - check before proceed

 

to flash the bios:

 

1) download the bios from hp (link above)

2) extract the installer with winrar

3) browse to SWinFlash

4) place BIOS_F31_HACK.WPH and rename to BIOS.WPH

5) flash it and you're done

 

i'm using a nice atheros card from a macbook ;)

don't try intel wireless cards - they don't work on amd machines (maybe it work with intel cards depending on your motherboard type)

Unfortunately, the above hack does not work for all dv67000 machines.

 

But if you've got a dv6700z (i.e. a dv6700 running on AMD) and/or you're using F.32 BIOS, I've got a hack for you!

 

jalavoui's excellent instructions still apply, but I'll try to reiterate with mods here. Do try to check for compatibility, but don't be overly concerned if you're dv6700xx isn't explicitly listed anywhere. If you're running F.32 you should be good to go. In general, WinFlash will not let you flash a BIOS for the wrong machine onto your hardware. (I was unable to flash the ep version above, for example, but YMMV.)

 

This BIOS hack bypasses HP's whitelies, sorry, whitelist, by making use of the F9 hex code change.

 

1) download the bios (sp42853) from hp (link below)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwar...54&sw_lang=

 

2) extract the installer with winrar or similar archiver

3) browse into SWinFlash folder

4) replace BIOS.WPH with BIOS_F32_HACK.WPH (in attached zip file) and rename it BIOS.WPH

5) flash it (by running the SWinFlash.exe in the same folder) and you're done

 

Intel miniPCIe cards *do* work on some HP AMD machines at least, as I am writing this post wirelessly from a so-hacked HP with an Intel 4965 AG.

it doesn't work 4 me F32 with my atheros

 

i get -144 error

 

You're going to have to supply better information than that. What text is associated with error -144? Which computer model did you attempt to run the upgraded BIOS on? Is the Atheros your new card? Did the hack work with your old card?

Here's the deal. The F.32 hack *will* allow pre-5100 Intel cards to work on AMD dv6700 laptops. I've now got a 4965 AGN working admirably in my AMD machine. However, neither the 5100 or 5300 will work therein.

 

Now my question for you is why in the world the newer Intel miniPCE cards require a Centrino chipset in order to function properly - or at least for the driver to be installed. This sounds a lot like Intel's own HP maneuver: it looks like Intel is purposefully limiting what hardware their card will run on. Does anyone have more information on this?

Hi All,

 

Firstly thanks Candycorn for posting your findings.

 

But to whom may try to do this, make sure you have a Phoenix Crisis disk on hand first.

 

I have a dv6748us, which use the very same service pack BIOS update from HP, but the hacked BIOS brick my laptop.

 

The flash goes well, and the laptop is shut down at end of flashing as per normal.

But when I attempt to start the laptop again, it goes into an eternal power-on / power-off cycle.

It will power up, so all the different lights come on, stay in that state for 2 seconds, then power off.

Then 5 seconds later it will power on again, only to power right back down.

Nothing is every written to the screen. It never get that far in the boot cycle.

 

Anyone seen this happen before?
