    It is more efficient to manual mod an award bios these days..This tool never was an asset to have around..IMHO anyway..

    Keep an eye out for a tool from AndyP..Who knows what may be around the corner..But it promises to be interesting..:D:D

    Could you explain in what sense this tool is less efficient than a manual mod?

    I used this tool for a few bios. Is there any reason why I should redo them manually? Does the bios produced by this tool (assuming it works) run worse than a bios made by manual mod?

    First, if the bios works, you can leave it. There is no guarantee the tool will work for newer versions of the same bios.Here is a simple reason why:

    It is mainly ISA mods which do not work with new gigabyte boards, and a lot of recent other brands. Any bios that has ISA[1] as AHCI module it will break, the last resort mod is hinkey at best..This tool is old...
    AndyP is due to release a tool that will put this where it needs to be..Keep your eyes open in the next couple of days;).

    When I say less efficient than manual mod, these are what I mean. The options are limited with this tool, when all that is working in the recent past for us is SSv3, 0+2, OEM, dynamic mods, and modified SSv1 mods. None of these are possible with this tool.
    ISA is a thing of the past for new boards, I'm afraid. This was the easiest to realize, as it required no knowledge of the bios structure...this has changed drastically:p
