Asus Unlocked \ Updated Bios Repository

29 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody! I'm creating an asus bios repo, with MSR0xE2 unlocked and many updates/mods.

You can ask me to upload your model without any problem. 
I'll not edit ANY bios that isn't from asus. (Ex: Already modified bios file / from other manufactor)

 
Here are the modifications that are present:

-MSR 0xE2 Unlocked (Apple PM Fix)
-CPU MICROCODE UPDATED (Latest Version)
-iGPU GOP UPDATED (Integrated GPU UEFI driver)
-LAN PXE UPDATED (Intel/Realtek/BCM)
-AHCI/RAID UPDATED (Intel/Marvel/JMicron)
-ASUS ROG LOGO (From Rampage IV Black)

Attention: Some mods aren't available in certain chipsets. Look in my github description.

 

The updates were made with UBU (UEFI bios updater), and MSR unlock & ROG Logo with UEFITool.

I only tested with P8Z77-V Deluxe, since I only have this board. But, all the files should be working.
Would be great, if who test it post a feedback here.


Current supported Asus Models (More coming):

LGA1155:
-P8Z68 Deluxe
-P8Z68-V LX
-P8Z77-I Deluxe
-P8Z77-I Deluxe/WD
-P8Z77-M
-P8Z77-V
-P8Z77-V Deluxe
-P8Z77-V LK
-P8Z77-V LX
-P8Z77-V Premium
-P8Z77-V Pro

LGA1150:

-ROG G20AJ
-Z87 Sabertooth
-B85-PRO GAMER
-Z97-PRO GAMER
-Z97 Gryphon

LGA2011: -P9X79
-X99-A II

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As always: I'm not going to take any responsability if you mess your MB up. If it fails, just download the bios file from asus website, rename it, and put into your pendrive. (Rename with the modded bios name)
 
How to Update (ASUS USB Flashback):

  • Download the bios file on my github. (below)
  • Format a pendrive to fat32
  • Copy the bios file to your pendrive.
  • Shutdown your computer
  • Connect your pendrive into "Usb Flashback" port. (If you can't find, search in yours board manual)
  • Now press the "Usb Flashback" button.  
  • Wait until the blue light stop (can take up to 5 minutes)
  • Start your computer, and configure bios again

Hi danielstuart14,

 

First, thanks for your repo, it is great.

 

Do you think it would be possible to add the patched bios for asus rog g20aj?

It is my main computer but no way to boot clover or [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] usb.

 

Thanks!

If you can't boot with clover (using aptiofix + haswell PM fix), then, I don't think a bios mod will fix it. I'll take I look in yours chipset. (I'll send you a PM) But, first you need try to make it works.

Could you please create an image for the "P8Z77-I Deluxe/WD", which is a slightly different version of the P8Z77-I Deluxe you uploaded recently. I have seen some positive feedback for the standard Deluxe model, and would really like to try it out on my model.

 
The most recent bios can be downloaded from below. Version 1101 is the latest version with a date of 2014/09/28.

If it is any help, I believe the file name for the USB flashback function for "P8Z77-I Deluxe/WD" should be Z77IDWD.CAP.

 

Thank you very much in advance.

thanks.. i made a slic version of P8Z77V LX 2501

but gave me error in ezflash as i expected so i made .bin version for spi programmer as chip is easy to take out from socket.

tested and booted. take power cord out and push power to drain pull chip.

flash with spi programmer like ch341A black usb cheapo, backup your bios by read then save as backup.bin

erase chip, write then verify.

insert chip in mobo and reset cmos jumper. plug in power and go to bios load defaults.

 

how i made  the bin from cap.

in hxd editor erase 00 (begining) to 000007FF

the next like is 00000800 all (this is the real begining.. compare to your backup.bin)

FF FF FF FF FF

 Z¥ð......... .!.

now save as .bin and flash.

 

 

file attached is .Bin rename from .TXT due to not allowed to upload this type file error..

P8Z77VLX_SLIC.txt

I just tried your bios for my p8z77-v and some of my hard drives are not detected.

I did revert to org bios and they are back. any thought about this?

Pardon my ignorance if this sounds dumb, but is it possible to modify the BIOS for my X99-A (USB 3.1) to work with a Samsung 960 Evo NVMe SSD? 

I just got one of these things and it's not even detected by the BIOS. I'd imagine they'll eventually come out with a BIOS update that supports the 960, but there's no telling when that would happen..

      Asus Prime B360M-A or Asus Prime H310M-E :

      Which of these two motherboards would give less hassle in a Hackintosh build - requiring fewer after install fixes/updates to get everything working in Mojave or High Sierra?
       
      These are the only two Asus models that I can afford, fit the form factor in my build, and already have had a BIOS upgrade by Asus to 9th-generation - if I want to replace the CPU with an i9 in the future (for now I'll be using i7-8700 or even i3-8350k but I want to future proof a bit)
       
      Thanks guys!

      I’ve succesfull installed Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6 on my Asus G73sw.
      Specifications:
      - Intel 2630QM-I7 / HM65
      - Nvidia Geforce GTX460m

       So what is needed to install Sierra on a Asus G73sw?
      1)       Install Clover with Mac OS Sierra on a bootable USB
      2)       Copy FakeSMC.kext , USBInjectAll.kext and VoodooPS2Controller to USB\EFI\CLOVER\kexts\Other\ folder
      3)       Copy HFSPlus-64 , CsmVideoDxe-64 (needed full resolution in Clover) and OsxAptioFixDrv-64 to USB\EFI\CLOVER\drivers64UEFI\ folder
      4)       Install Mac OS Sierra
       
      After the installation you reach the desktop.

      FIRST install Clover with the following settings:
                      - Installation for UEFI motherboards
                      - Install Clover in the ESP
                      - Drivers64UEFI -> OsxAptioFixDrv-64
                      - Drivers64UEFI -> CsmVideoDxe-64
                      - Install RC scripts on targetvolume
                      - Install Clover preference panel
       
      Copy HFSPlus-64 to EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/ folder
       
      After that, install the following kexts with your favorite kext installer:

                      - FakeSMC.kext                    ->            Always needed
                      - VoodooPS2Controller          ->            Needed to use your keyboard
                      - USBInjectAll                      ->            Needed to use USB2.0 ports
                      - ACPIBatteryManager          ->            Shows batterystatus
                      - AsusNBFnKeys                  ->            Needed to use FN keys
                      - AppleALC + Lilu                ->            Needed to get audio working
                      - RealtekRTL8111               ->            Needed to get LAN working (can’t test, LAN card defect)
       
      As last, copy the DSDT (many thanks to MaLd0n for creating the DSDT file) file to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/PATCHED/
       
      Reboot and see what is working:
       
      -          Nvidia Geforce GTX460m         ->            Config.plist
      -          Wifi                                       ->            DSDT
      -          Audio                                    ->            DSDT + AppleALC + Lilu
      -          USB2.0                                  ->            USBInjectall
      -          Batterypercentage                  ->            DSDT
      -          Asus FN keys                         ->            AsusNBFnKeys
       
      And what is not working:
       
      -          USB3.0 (Fresco Logic xHCI(USB3))
      -          Keyboard backlight
      -          Brightness FN key
      -          Cardreader
      -          Bluetooth
       
      As last, I’m unable to generate a SSDT with ssdtPRGen.sh from Piker-Alpha. I’ve got the following error (see attached picture):
       
      The MacBookPro10,1 SMBios has an board-ID that is not compatible with my Sandy Bridge laptop. So I tried a few things:
      -          Change the SMBios to MacBookPro8,2
                 Reboot -> Black screen
      -          Changed the SMBIOS to MacBookPro8,2 and add the below to KextToPatch
                 com.apple.driver.AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy
                 BA050000 00
                 BA000000 00
                 Prevent AGDP from loading
                 Reboot -> Apple bar won’t load
      -         Changed the SMBIOS to MacBookPro8,2 and changed productname to iMac13,2
                Reboot -> Apple bar load but get a blackscreen
      -         Changed the SMBIOS to MacBookPro8,2 and changed productname to iMac13,2 and add the below to KextToPatch
                 com.apple.driver.AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy
                 BA050000 00
                 BA000000 00
                 Prevent AGDP from loading
                Reboot -> laptop boots good
       
      With the MacBookPro8,2 SMBIOS and the changed productname I’m still unable to generate an SSDT.
       
      So, can someone help me to:
       
      -          Generate a correct SSDT
      -          Get USB3.0 working
      -          Get Keyboard backlight working
      -          Get Brightness FN key working
      -          Get Cardreader working
      -          Get Bluetooth working

      Я выполнил инструкции, но когда я запустил установку, после загрузки полосы под яблоком у меня есть установочные окна, но их очень сложно понять, яркость ниже минимальной в Windows. Извините за мой плохой английский
       
      Specs: Core i7-6500u, 8GB RAM, GTX 950M (DISABLED)

      A big thanks to wegface for teaching me a lot of things.
       
       
      Tested on High Sierra 10.13.6 and Clover EFI 4679
       
      Not Working:
      - realtek sd card reader (pm me if you have a fix)
       
      Notes:
      **CPU patches are disabled, if you are using a locked BIOS you must enable them**
       
      Clover EFI:
      - Install it in UEFI Mode and change your hdd partition table to GPT.
      - You will be able to install ANY OS in EFI mode, even if this pc does not support EFI at all! (No guide available for this)
       
      You will need:
      My unlocked BIOS (OPTIONAL) (here) Latest Clover config from CCE Bank (here) (asus k53sj-kylon) Rehabman AppleIntelBacklightInjector (here) in L\E + rebuild cache Rehabman Voodoo PS2 Controller (here) Rehabman ACPI Battery Driver (here) vit9696 AppleALC (here) + Lilu (here) Mieze Realtek RTL8111 (here) FakeSMC 3.5.1 from Clover EFI source

      Hi everybody.
      I'm trying to run MacOS High Sierra on tis configuration:
       
      i5-6600
      ASRock h170 Fatal1ty Performance
      RX 480 8gb
       
      The problem is that I'm not familiar with ASRock motherboards and their BIOS. Can anyone help me setting it up?
       
      Thanks to everyone who will help.
