    my new lappy Hp Envy 15-j049 , got bios issue. Now , I know that its win 8 ,pheonix tool is no use , but when compared to platform.ini i found the file that matched my REV , and changed that to bin file , and sig from HP_TOOLS/H....P.../Biosupdate/Hpbiosupdate.sig , the thing is I feel this does work , Reason?

    When I plugged USB ,did that win+B with fd,bin or rom without the sig , flash drive flashes twice and stops at the last caps lock blink (no 2x blinks , just once)

    Then I did the sig , bin stuff , then after the second flash of usb the caps lock starts to blink 2x (like 2x___2x___2x etc even after usb stops flashing) , what does that mean , please note : caps dont blink 2x if u put the usb files in anyother way or any other bin.

    Please give me a solution , am really screwed i just bought it yesterday

    Thank You for your time and effort.

    HPefibiosupdate.sig is wrong .sig file
    in BIOS\Current u should have factory original decrypted bin and sig.
    if u did NOT back it up youre screwed untill u get it from same board id model to do recovery.

    reason: phoenixmod tool cant decrypt new win8 bios = no .sig made

    are u sure the folder u got that file from was
    blank partition name first partition 260MB or so: EFI\HP\BIOS\Current (green is the folder u need)
    or was it
    HP_TOOLS:\Hewlett-Packard\BIOS\ ?
