    Hi,

    we are trying to develop a automated mod method using LZMA.exe. It compresses the bios in another way. Anyway EzH20.exe, the common tool to open / edit those bioses, opens such modified bioses fine.
    We need to know if they are working.

    You should be familiar with the Insyde recovery method: (or any other working recovery method....spare chip, EEPROM program device, hot swap / flash).

    I would be very happy if somebody can try. This would be another step ahead regarding automated modifying.
    If you are able to, please reply with a link to your original bios. You'll get a mod to try. We (probably) need just one try for ;)

    Waiting for reply.:)

    Thanks.

    TM4730G bricked, would you please HELP?

    I bricked my nb the day before, and tried the following procedure, but failed:

    -get the official .FD file of the VERY version when it came to me for my notebook, copy and

    rename them to the first 1, 2, ..., 8 digits, .FD and .BIN;
    -put newly named file(s) on a FAT16 USB stick (or a blank CD-RW, MS-DOS bootable, or GRUB

    installed, or with the .FD image into the boot sector of the CD, or just a BLANK one), plug

    it (or the CD, or both) in the notebook;
    -unplug notebook;
    -remove battery;
    -unit (removed any usb devices, and even HDD, anything else?) off, press and hold Fn+Esc

    (mine are probably NOT Windows key and B);
    -plug in AC power while holding those buttons, at this moment it's power LED , together with

    the LED on the Power Button, flashed an orange color, only once, just a blink;
    -turn on notebook (pressed the Power Button while holding Fn+Esc), let go of all buttons,

    then the LED lights come on, and the fan began to output an abnormal wind speed and noise,

    for only about 2~5 seconds, at the same time the USB stick flashed once (just once) and the

    DVD-rom tried to read something, but they seemed to find noting, for I think it had hardly

    any time to read anything from the USB disk or the CD;
    -then the machine powered down itself and never wakeup, even if press any button;
    -the notebook would NOT made ANY beep at all;
    -pluged off the book, repluged it, pressed the Power button in the normal way, the book

    would be turned on for 1~3 seconds, trying to read something, and powered off itself, then

    1~3 seconds later it powered on itself again, then off, ..., repeatedly, endlessly;

    Does the filenames missmatches my systems motherboard code?
    How can I find the right name of it?
    Can you HELP me, please?:confused:
