I upgraded to Windows 8, and I was reading how to improve boot times they basically used a version of hibernation to quickly load previous driver/hardware info when booting the system. Even though the bios is accessed before the OS loads, has that led to any complications for people trying to downgrade from the stock a09 and flash the unlocked a09 with Windows 8?

Maybe i'm just missing something, but whenever i try to use the m17r4 a09, it reboots, then gives me an error message upon restart. Insyde H20- Secure Flash, Error:Invalid Firmware Image!!! Press any key to reboot.

ive got it on the unlocked a08 also, which i have the "normal" a08. Anyone else get this?

Everyone gets this, it's all described in the first post, the links in the first post, the READ ME file in the unlocked bios download, and in several posts here as well iirc. ;)

hi All,

thanks for the suggestions guys...i'm using NIS 2011 :) not NIS 2013, but i kind of found a solution the problem is kind of fixed... its drivers issue... In dark void game if i turn the feature PhysX feature OFF from LOW(which i kept) no throttling at all the and works smoothly @ 120FPS... and Even if i had kept 3D Steroescopic feature OFF in Nvidia CP still the game works with 3D ON and Even 3D emitter turns On somehow... But alteast throttling is gone... But the Alinefx lights still don't work properly with games using Alinefx feaure for health monitoring... the lights GO dark after couple of minutes... But still thats not major issue... i have reported the Nvidia and created a case for driver feedback issue hope they fix this game issue in upcoming drivers... Anyways thanks for your helps and suggestion... \

BTW the A09 here is real nice... It helps me turn off my Optimus and help me manage to change few other setting like setting from HDD to SSD in port 1 where i used SSD and not HDD which was default also many other features... thanks for new Bios...

Regards!

I want to confirm that the brick fix works to downgrade my m17x R4 BIOS back to A05. I have a question. So even with an unlocked bios, the 3610QM is not overclockable?

That's correct, not supported by this CPU. All you could do is slightly increasing the base clock, but it will mess up other things.

So If I read this correctly. You cannot flash from Stock A09 > Unlocked A09?

That is correct. Only is possible flahs bios 05 stock or unlock > 08 or 09.

From bios 09 stock not is possible nothing..............not downgrade or upgrade to bios unlock

What are some of the benefits gained from a modded/ unlocked bios? I could't find any information on it when I google-ed this question.

More options for fine-tuning your system. Mostly for advanced users only.

I just updated to A09 version, and I can't get the turbo boost to work properly. All cores run at max all the time. Any one else having this problem? I already tried disabling the p-states but that would only remove all turbo boost. I need the processor to idle instead of running at max.

Reset the bios. Go to the setup and look for something like 'load default settings', apply, save and then reboot.

I have tried that also. There seems to be a problem with the speedstep because no matter what changes I do the processor is always at a set speed. It work before the update, not after and thats what making wondering if there is some issue with my system.

Yes J95, my bios setting are the same as yours. At first I assumed it was that the C-States were disabled, but after checking everything seemed normal. I am going to downgrade to A05 and back to A09 unlocked. I will report results later.

Edit: Well after exhausting all options for fixing the problem I had to downgrade to A05 then A09 unlocked again. Unfortunately that didn't work out, so I assumed it was a mistake with my system. Did a fresh install and everything is working fine now on unlocked A09.

I was able to go to A05 with the link in my previous post. From there you can go to A09 lock or unlocked.

      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.
