svl7, i would place a warning for those who have Modded Vbios, that it potentially causes the Bios flash to brick.

No need for a warning because this is not true... the vbios has nothing to do with the bios and bios update, it's even stored on a separate rom. If you had a bad flash then it was simply due to bad luck, not due to the modified vbios.

Hi there,

I want to flash my bios to this unlocked one but what features would the average user use? Can this bios allow overclock of the i7 3720qm? or ram? stuff like that. Thanks!

Yes,but you can overclock your i7-3720qm with the stock bios too.

Go to Advanced/Performance Option/Overclocking Enable/Extreme Edition Enabled and than you can use Level 1-3 overclocking

or change the Core Ratio Limits by yourself.

I use 38/37/36/36 and it works great.

Have fun:glee:

Yes you can overclock with a05 unlocked,but with the stock bios too.

Go to Advanced/Performance Option/Overclocking Feature Enable/Extreme Edition Enabled and than use Level 1-3 oveclocking

or change the Core Ratio Limits by yourself.F10 Save and Exit that´s all.I use 38/37/36/36 and it works fine.

I have flashed the unlocked BIOS and everything seems to work fine, but I can't find the new options in the BIOS.

The only change is the tab "Main", where the hardwareinformations are listed.

Everything else is same as before. Did I do something wrong ?

The "Advanced" tab, like in this screenshot, is completely missing for me.

Maybe try to reset bios settings to default and reflash and see if it shows all the menus then. Im not sure why you would experience that.

If you disable hypertheading.

Flashing is simple .... first you put the battery in your computer. after, close all programs you have in the background (disable antivirus, etc). Then run the exe file of the bios and wait for it to finish.

If all goes well smoothly restarts.

Unlocked A08 added to the first post, it will take a while until it is ready on the server, T|I users can grab the attachement so they don't need to wait.

Please let me know how it goes, menus should show up just as in the previous modified BIOS, but I still don't have access to a system to test it myself.

I take it no one has been able to acquire the A09 BIOS posted on the Dell site yet? Let alone mod it..

svl7, the unlocked A08 works perfectly.

All the advanced (hidden) menus are there, only issue is after flashing, the setting reversed to factory default.

Which is inconsistent with stock BIOS flashing behavior, but no biggie.

Thank you!

Maybe thats meant to be to prevent some problem from original bios values!?

Actually a bios flash should always reset the cmos if it's set up properly... it doesn't do it all the time, but I recommend anyone who flashes the bios to got to the setup menu afterwards and reload the defaults.

Awaiting unlocked A09 from modder extraordinaire :)

Hehehe, thanks, sure.

@ALL:

I tried to put together some information regarding the latest AW BIOS updates, and the most crucial changes in them. I'm aware that it's a bit a wall of text, and very quickly written, but if you intend to use modified bios versions you should take a look at it, or even better, read it.

It might even be an interesting read for people who don't use modified bios files.

A09 added. Keep in mind that currently you will only be able to flash a modified version when you come from A05 or older. Going back won't necessarily work once A08 or later is on your system. Some had success with the USB method, some didn't.

What do you mean? So I currently have the unlocked A05 on my system. What precautions must I take?

      As it got pretty difficult for me to keep track of all the mod requests I decided to make a separate thread for bios / vbios modification requests. I hope it will make it easier for me to fulfill as many requests as possible.
      If you want to request a mod make sure you read through the following guidelines / rules, posts that do not comply with them will be deleted without further notice.
      Rules:
      You need to have a minimum of five approved posts (or 'T|I elite' status) in order to request a mod. Make sure I didn't already modify the corresponding bios / vbios. When posting a request you agree to flash and test the mod once it's done and post some feedback. (If you don't plan on using the mod then don't bother posting.) I only modify stock firmware. I don't work on anything that has already been tampered with.
      . For BIOS mods I need a link to an original BIOS update directly from the vendor (no mirror link) and most likely a dump of your BIOS (see instructions below).
      I only work on the latest BIOS versions unless there's a very specific reason for using an older one (in this case you need to specify so).
      In addition to this I need a dump of your BIOS as well as some additional information, read the "BIOS backup" section below, provide all the specified files.
      . For VBIOS mods I need a copy of your original vbios. (Only as attachment in a post here or per link to cloud storage such as dropbox, gdrive etc. per PM, filehosters are not accepted). No custom GPU clock requests unless it is for some reason not possible to overclock the corresponding system / GPU per software. No Windows activation mods. Check MDL for this kind of request. I can't guarantee that I will be able to fulfill a request.
      While I will try to keep it fair and consider the order of the requests at least up to a certain degree I will generally work on what I want and feel up to. Popular requests might be treated with higher priority.
      BIOS backup:
      For Intel 7 series chipsets run the attached flashChk tool from DOS and post the created flashchk.bin file (as attachment).
      Also grab this tool, run the backup.bat and send me created file. You will need to run it as administrator. If it reports and issue with the PCIe driver you have a crappy AV software and need to disable it temporarily.
      If you don't use Windows let me know and I will provide a different tool.
      For systems using the 8 series chipsets run the attached flashChk tool from DOS and post the created flashchk.bin file (as attachment) and wait for further instructions.
      - Thread under construction, more information will be added -
      flashChk.zip
      Fptw64_(8_series).zip
      Fpt_DOS_(8_series).zip

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo Y50-70, Lenovo Y70-70, Lenovo Z50-70, Lenovo Z70-70, Lenovo G50-70, Lenovo G70-70.
      If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden additional menus and settings in bios setup menu, or unlocked vbios for overclock NVIDIA card, then you can post your request in this thread. Also, if you have a problem with fan pulsating/clicking on any modified bios then you can post your request in this thread.
       
      The flashing procedure include two steps:
      1.  Flash main system bios.
      2.  Flash EC firmware.
