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..

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..

      Hi,
       
      Im glad to be a part of this forum. Just signed up 20 mins ago.

      I have an old macpro 2008 fully loaded using yosemite 10.10.5.
       
      I would not like to touch that OSX version but been curious with mojave on hackintosh PC.
       
      i also have a low/mid range gaming windows PC.
       
      My specs for my W7/10 dual boot (same SSD) windows PS are as follows:


      Motherboard: Asus P8B75-V
      Intel i7 3770k
      8GB DDR3 1600mhz RAM
      Antec HCG 620W PSU
      Asus GTX 560 DC
      Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD
       
      Built everything in mid 2012.
       
      Will these hardware lets me install Mojave? If not, whats the max OSX i can install? 
      Then worst case, will i be able to install atleast yosemite 10.10?
      I dont mind if i get Nullcpupowermanagement and not be able to use my bios C1 packages and sleep or any intel speedstep as i dont use them anyways in my windows OS.
      i just need it to work smoothly with MB audio built-in, wifi, ethernet, Usb port 2.0 and 3.0.
      im not a gamer but likes to use Logic pro X.
       
       
      was thinking of using the W10 partition for the hackintosh OSX but if possible, i could use a 64GB USB 3.0 thumbdrive.
       
      Thanks in advance.

      System is Mojave 1.341. Hardware is GA-Z97-HD3/i3/15 gb DDR3 2133/GTX 660
       
      When I set the correct time in bios it is changed to an incorrect value upon reboot. Time remains correct in Mojave desktop. Both bios and desktop are configured to use 24 hr. time instead of AM/PM. I changed the CMOS battery and it made no difference. No other bios parameters are affected, just the time. Latest bios is installed I believe.
       
      In researching this the only hits that turned up had to do with dual boot Mac OS/Windows or dual boot Linux/Windows. This is not a dual boot machine.
       
      Any idea as to why this is happening?
       
      Thanks

      Update: Now running Mojave! Thanks to mojave2core! Yeah   Still using C2D in 2019!
      Inserted a nice and cheap GT710 that is not relying on nVidias Webdrivers and runs OOB under Mojave.
       
      Nice, seeing High Sierra running on this old but capable system! It rocks with a new ASUS GT1030
       
      Config:
      Gigabyte EP43-DS3L
      Core2Quad Q9300
      6 GB DDR2 RAM
      Asus GT1030 2GB
      Sandisk SSD 128GB
      TP-Link AC1200 Wifi USB
      Inateck KT4006 USB 3.0 PCIe (No boot)
       
      SMBIOS: iMac14,1
      Clover: 4297  4360
       
      A good deal of DSDT editing was necessary to get this machine to boot High Sierra but finally it works flawlessly, even sleep and wake!
      You NEED to have the DSDT put in place for installation because otherwise macOS doesn't recognize the SATA ports.
      There are a few important BIOS settings: SATA hast to be set to AHCI and "native" and HPET has to be run "64-bit", I'd recommend to disable IDE and the serial and parallel port.
      For the GT1030 nVidia Webdrivers are needed, have to boot with nv_disable=1 until you have them installed.
      You have to install Clover in legacy mode because this old fella does not support UEFI.
       
      Only downside: The so often recommended Inateck USB-card isn't recognized by BIOS, so you cannot boot from it. It works perfectly within macOS though, have the ac-Wifi connected to it.

      Hello! Sorry for the way of writing in English, I'm using google translator.
      I am several days trying to make my Mojave hakintosh work perfectly. However, I have reached a point where I can no longer proceed without help.
      Almost all hardawares were installed and recognized (using the clover). However, still have a panic kernel (capture attached). Every time, when connecting the MAC it restarts 2 or 3 times to be able to show the dekstop and to function normal. I also think that having problem with video graphics sometimes freezes the entire display system if video appears on a web page.
      I've attached a file with used files: clover, bios capture, complete hardware information, error capture(https://1drv.ms/u/s!AvhW45_HBY8zgfsySZPWZ-SZXFiMfA). Can someone help me?
       
      Notebook:
      Mobile DualCore Intel Core i7-3537U, 2000 MHz (20 x 100), 4 threads
      Asus K46CB Series Notebook
      Intel Panther Point HM76, Intel Ivy Bridge-MB
      16269 MB  (DDR3 SDRAM)
      BIOS AMI (05/17/2013)

      Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000                         10.18.10.4358

      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!
