where is phoenix bios mod tool?
It's still in beta phase. Some versions have been leaked due to a mistake. It caused already some bricked boards.
Andyp is the author of it, Busykid, zort, phrunt, 911medic, shakey, me and some others are testing it. Andy has just added the Dell bios support. The tool is becoming more reliable at each new version andy is programming. We are now at version 0.46, which means the 45th update already.
To provide a good and reliable tool, it takes time. Phoenix bioses are complex and each of it is a bit different to handle.
It's up to the author when he thinks the time is right to release it to the public.
Anyway to use the tool needs some knowledge about phoenix bioses to apply the proper settings of the tool, it will be not that easy to use than the both other tools. We are trying to create a powerful tool, to handle as easy as possible....you have to be patient.
will Andy include SLIC 2.1 insertion into his Phoenix Bios Mod Tool?
What do you think?
Tool is now at RC1 v1.00......
Some main features:
-3 different mod methods, SSv3/Lenovoway based, Dynamic and original/PBE like (not recommended)
-parses rw-everything report to choose the right settings
-supports old style Phoenix bioses
-supports new style Phoenix bioses
-supports Acer exe all in one flash files
-supports Dell Phoenix, dynamic method only (SLIC replacement)
Yen What year will be on display and modification Tool for the Phoenix BIOS as the picture looks like .....??? Thanks
Congrats to the whole team - very impressive feature list
When might we see the tool released?
to keep you folks updated... It is at RC2, and updated feature list looks like insyde bioses may get (at least) some partial support as well. It will be wonderful to have a tool for these bioses as well!
Thank you to everyone involved in the bios tools!
But now I have to introduce my question...
It will support Acer notebooks bioses?
Oh, and please, take your time... I don't want to transform my lovable kid into a honorable brick!
Waiting for news about this.
How to become beta tester. Are there any features list of this program?
Will at allow to add or remove modules a la cbrom?
Nope. More like PBE, CBROM is award bios.
You cannot add a module, it is solely for SLIC insertion at this point, probably always will be..
As one finish touch.. what about an option to replace the bootscreen, uh?
Is it possible to edit the MMIO, Register Editor, BAR so that it can fix "code 12" problems with vidock and also the HP bios conflicts with the hwtools card.
Any idea when the tool will be released?
The tool is coming along nicely, but to be sure it's as safe as possible it takes time, the day andyp feels that it's ready, it will be released. it's now at 100RC4 and currently Insyde support is being worked on. I tested an Insyde this morning and it appeared to work fine but thats only one test, we'll need to do many more before confidence is there that it's working well.
At the moment just do a request in the request thread for mods and hang around, the tool will arrive when it's ready but I must say i'm extremely impressed with it and the work andy has done.
So do you release it after you have reach a milestone of 100 bios mods?
Can anyone tell me what conditions must be met for the Phoenix tool to be released??
Wait patiently until it is officially released....
yep, you'll just have to wait, there is no set date or anything specific, it's more when Andy and everyone else involved feel it's ready. It's release will be when it's deemed safe enough to be released. We had a big development with Insyde bios mods this morning and Dell mod's appear to be working well so it's all looking very good, the phoenix new and old style is working extremely well, i've done countless mods and haven't had a failure since very early versions. I'm sure when it's ready you'll think it's well worth the wait, it's an excellent tool.
nothing much to say just cheer up you all. you are doing great.
