    I modded the BIOS of my MSI G31M3-L motherboard as per the instructions in the AMI Tool thread. I first flashed the unmodded bios, then rebooted and flashed the SLIC 2.1 modded one that I created.

    It all went well and I confirmed with RW-Everything that it was modded to SLIC 2.1 (it said ASUS-Notebook on the right hand column).

    I tried using OpaTool with the ASUS certificate but nothing happened. I'm still with a 30 day grace period, this is the second time I've reset it to 30 days. It actually expired yesterday but I managed to rearm it and I've got a wallpaper back etc.

    Something I'm missing here? This is the first time I've ever had any problems getting OpaTool to activate. Really frustrated. All the other times I've done this, I was using PCs that had been flashed with pre-modded BIOSes, this is the first time I've done it myself. But RW-Everything does show that it has SLIC 2.1.. so I'm at a loss.

    Ideas please?
