    Hi all.

    trying to mod my Sony Vaio BIOS but not having much luck.

    I am using PHLASH16 booting from a USB stick.

    This flash tool is totally different to others i have used,seems to involve more script writing.

    I boot up the USB stick and write

    PHLASH16/BU R2060J9.wph

    igot the name from the bios screen after pressing F2.

    All i get is an error message saying "unable to open - R2060J9.WPH"

    Is the .wph right for a sony BIOS extension ?

    I have been looking every where on the forums and the net to get some good clear info on flashing Sony Vaio BIOS's and cant find owt that really helps me out.

    Checkout this thread i made yesterday. No replies ?:(

    No chance to get an official bios from Sony, or from a similar model?
    Phoenix bioses cannot be backuped fully, since the needed platform data will be missing.
    You need a bios to modify provided by the OEM (Sony).

    I guess you will not be able to flash it...

    I would rather not flash and stick with vista than flash and fook it up...

    Its not that old and is working well.. If it aint broke dont mend it.

    Just done a few BIOS flashes of late. Dont want to do one too many and end up braking my own...

    Hello I have been looking for this mod for a few days now and everyone who claims to have modded it or that has it post dead links. Can someone please re-upload this bios I would greatly appreciate it.
