    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.;)

    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!

    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..

    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.

    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??

    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.
