    I've tried to save P67X-UD3-B3 U1B with AMIBCP many times. It always crashes after I press save button.
    I did also try to save other Gigabyte MotherBoard's Aptio UEFI Bios with AMIBCP. All of them made AMIBCP crashed.
    However, ASUS's Aptio UEFI Bios can be saved without any issues.

    How can I deal with it? Shall I contact to AMIBCP's dev? (<--AMI I guess??)
    Or is it because Gigabyte lock their Aptio Bios?

    The leaked AMIBCP is still buggy for manipulating AMI Aptio images.

    Its a leaked copy of the tool, so except a warm welcome from AMI.

    :D

    Thanks for rely. :)
    I mean modifying a Bios not flashing a Bios.
    Is afudos able to modify a Bios?
    Btw, your link is not working. It leads me to AMI's support page.

    I did send an email to AMI, but I haven't received a rely from them yet. Now I feel this idea is stupid...
    Is it possible to modify/add "PCI IRQ Routing" , "BIOS Strings" & "DMI Tables" with MMtool? Since I'm not able to save BIOS with AMIBCP.

    Thanks for your info.
    But what I want is a tool for editing Aptio Bios, not a tool for flashing Bios.
    I can already flash Bios with Gigabyte's QFlash.

    Do you know if there is a way to remove or replace Intel ME in the Bios?
    I saw a thread telling that Intel ME could be a reason for MMTool not able to read Bios. I'm guessing this might be a reason for AMIBCP not being able to save Gigabyte's Aptio Bios.
