Here is the mod for our bioses : Dell_Inspiron_3537_A08_ADV_Tempter.rar . ® BDMaster.

Just copy the "modified" folder into C:\ HD root and open a Comand Prompt with Admin Rights getting

a window C:\ then execute the FPTw (x32) or FPTw64 (x64) aligned to your Windows O.S.

cd \

cd C:\modified

fptw -f bios.bin -bios

Or

fptw64 -f bios.bin -bios

P.S. to get working the FPT Tool You have to use It by Windows Desktop after Woke-Up the Laptop !

P.S.S i Have and error by installing it : Error 7: Hardware sequencing failed. Make sure that you have access to target flash area!

Waiting for help!

Hi!

I have managed to flash my Dell 3537 with your custom BIOS.

Thank you so much for doing all this work. I read this thread https://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-Dell-Inspiron-15-3537-BIOS-A08-A06?page=5 and followed all your work.

The way I did it was - first I downgraded to A03 and after that I did the sleep trick to disable write protection. After that I was able to flash the custom BIOS and now I have a lot new setting I can use in the BIOS.

Thank you again Tempter and BDMaster! :)

Yeesh.... so you finally found Sigvardrs post giving you a mysterious hope for your laptop :3

But how the hell did he downgrade? especially when you find all these articles talking about needing to buy hardware to mod your bios

 

so here it is nerds - the easy friggin instructions your looking for

go find "3537A03.exe" (A03 BIOS) && "rufus-2.6p.exe" && download Tempter's A08 BIOS mod

 

open rufus, select thumb drive, FS of "Fat32", Bootable disk using "FreeDOS" ==> Start

 

copy 3537A03.exe to root of thumb drive

 

while ur at it... copy Tempter's "modified" folder to the root of your OS drive (Usually C:\)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~Fun time~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Boot to USB (I had Legacy mode enabled then mashed F12)

type " 3537A03.e xe/forceit" and hit return (without the quotation marks u dummy)

do whatever it wants you to do, system will reboot and shnazz

 

okok now your finally downgraded to A03 (super easy)

 

now hit windows key, type "cmd", right click "cmd.exe" and click "run as administrator"....

 

cd \

 

cd C:\modified

 

###CLOSE LID / HYBERNATE

###OPEN LID / RESUME

 

fptw -f bios.bin -bios

Or

fptw64 -f bios.bin -bios

reboot and enjoy :))))))))))))))))))))))))))

 

NOTE
NOTE
NOTE
NOTE

What the hell - all I wanted to do was add custom UEFI signatures so I could Secure Boot my copy of Kali Linux T_T

and my service tag now aligns with 3537?! lololol I have 5537

This happened because you flash the bios which was made for Sigvardr (not for you). His laptop is Dell 3537.
With this metod you should flash mod bios which was made only for your laptop.

Now you just cloned Sigvardr's laptop. :)

You can send me your file backup of bios A09, and i'll look at it. For creating backup of bios use attached program. Unzip attached archive directly on the Desktop and run the program as administrator (right click mouse). Program will create archive "results" directly on the Desktop. Send me this archive "results".

Each mod BIOS is made for each laptop individually. Because it contains personal data like serial numbers, Windows keys, MAC address, etc.

You can send me (via PM) your file backup of bios A09 for modification. For creating backup of bios use attached program. Unzip attached archive directly on the Desktop and run the program as administrator (right click mouse). Program will create archive "results" directly on the Desktop. Send me this archive "results".

Ya, he tried to help but the thing is he was unable to help me disable bios write protection on my laptop.

Since you have posted bios mods for other dell laptops also. I thought you might be able to help me there.

      Hello!
       
      I have recently acquired my Dell Inspiron 15 7000, and I am interested in building an egpu setup for it. It has a USB-C port. Any recommendations/guides out there?
       
      thanks.

      Hey everyone!  After lots of searching it looks like this is the go-to place for laptop mods online, so I figured this would be the best place to ask something like this.
       
      I picked up a Dell E6530 for basically scrap value, and I love the thing.  Runs Xubuntu great, battery is halfway decent, and I can play 99% of the games I own on it.  My friend on the other hand picked up an E6440 with its silver-ish finish along the back.  As much as I love my 6530 I've gotta say, that thing looks great.
       
      To get to the point now, I was wondering if it's possible for me to polish the top of the lid on my 6530 to have a more silver finish like that (or maybe even a mirror finish if I sand it down with a fine enough grit).  Really what I want to know is if the dark grey part of the lid is actually metal.  I can't seem to get a definitive answer online, and I tried the magnet test on it and it wasn't magnetic at all.  This doesn't necessarily mean it's not metal though, as aluminum isn't magnetic but is obviously a sandable/polishable metal.  One source said the laptop has anodized aluminum parts on it, but they didn't specify whether it was something internal or external.
       
      Can anyone here provide me some insight?  If the grey part is definitely a metal and not a plastic, I think I'm gonna give it a try.  As stated before I got this thing for scrap value, so if in the end it doesn't work out I'm not gonna cry over it or anything.  Still though, I'd rather not run into this blind.  If this is indeed possible though and I can accomplish what I want with a decent looking result, I'll post up some pictures with the method I used for others to do as well.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      Hello,
       
      I have a Dell Inspiron 5555 with BIOS A12 and I am missing some options in the advance menu. The BIOS seems to be shared between the 5455 and the 5755, if it helps. Can anyone help me figure a way to have all the options in the BIOS available?
      I have attached the results archive from the backup tool, if it helps

      Thanks in advance!
