Well for whatever reason UBU just will not update the M8 Hero BIOS 902 for me..not sure why it works for someone else but not for me.
But there is no way I'm going to use any complicated methods I don't fully understand...I've always used UBU because it was quite simple to use and effective.
I will continue to use it for my Z97 Gigabyte however.

For Gigabyte Z170, everything working except OROM Sata legacy (EFI is OK).

Did you update the microcode, too?

#78 RE: [Guide] Manual AMI UEFI BIOS Modding by mandrix 01.11.2015 18:25

Well Asus M8 Hero 902 would not update with UBU, but 1001 would!
But 1001 has an Adaptive Vcore bug...I may use it in offset mode, though.
Interesting!

Yes, Intel microcode update is OK.

By the way: I don't see any reason for owners of an Intel-100 Series Chipset system to use LEGACY Option ROM modules.

I still using legacy...less trouble.

Found out something interesting. There are apparently two versions of the Asus M8 Hero BIOS...one UBU would not update, the other one UBU updated every module and microcode just fine!
So, apparently UBU is not having problems with Asus BIOS, at least not for the Z170 Hero.

Thanks everyone.

Hi Fernando
I realy need your help!
I have 775 System with Xeon E5450 CPU and Asus P5QL-VM EPU. These motherboard had Intel G43 Chipset.
I realy had trouble to overclock my motherboard and i think the problem is on bios module "JumperFree". When i put above 344Mhz the system cannot boot. The settings is correctly. I have experience overclock on other motherboard. i Add CPU id for run Xeon.
My question is, it is possible to delete "JumperFree" module and insert "Ai Tweaker" from other motherboard?
I put two bios files to compare.
Best regards!

Since I have never tried to modify any System BIOS module, I am not able to answer your question.

Hopefully you will get some informations fom a Forum member, who knows more about these system modules than me.

Regards
Dieter (alias Fernando)

Not that it matters, but I can get the UBU tool to mod the RAID driver on a Aptio V. I replaced the file in the IRST folder with new RAID, and checked it with UBU and hex.

Here is before -



Here is after mod


Here it is UBU tool reopened -



Not that it helps, because with UEFI or UBU I can't get the flash not to fail because I can't remove header, I sure hope we get a tool soon.

@ odiebugs:
There are at least 2 things, which I do not understand:
1. According to your signature you have a "new" Z97 mainboard, but you write about an AMI Aptio V BIOS. Which Z97 mainboard has such BIOS?
2. Your pictures show, that you have used the UBU v1.41.1, which natively doesn't offer the Intel RAID ROM/EFI RaidDriver modules v14.7.0.2341. Nevertheless you obviously got it inserted into your BIOS. How did you manage that?

Will update profile, I have a ASrock Z170 extreme 7+ now also. Will be testing the Samsung 950's in RAID soon.

In the UBU tool folder are the modules, all I did was over write the OROM and EFI RAID Driver with the newest 14.7. But it didn't work on the OROM, but it did replace the EFI, I also opened up the BIOS.BIN that it makes and extracted the RAID Driver with MM tool and confirmed that it was replaced with 14.7.

I have tried to delete every line with word Capsule with MM tool. Using the UBU tool and UEFI tool does not work removing header so I can mod the files to new RAID but always get secure flash fail.

ASrock Z170 extreme 7+ BIOS version 2.0. This BIOS image does not contain a protective capsule header. Perhaps Asrock changed protection.

What ever they did it's PMO , lol

I noticed that the UEFI tool does not show a capsule header, but I assumed the tool didn't see new one in Aptio V.

Replacing EFI with my GUID and header - as anyone can see it throws error for DOS signature -




Now when I use Dieter's header removed EFI there is no error and the rebuild is ok and the old body is not left behind, but still get secure flash fail-



I have tried all three tools, EFI with header and without, tried using replace as is, extracted and tried to overwrite, even tried to use UBU after using UEFI tool and always get secure flash fail.

Looking to update CPU microcode via UEFITool for ASUS X99 mobo. The UBU tool cant modify asus bios

Is there a specific GUID i should be looking for? MMTOOL has the CPU patch tab but obviously it errors out if trying to save a bios(asus bug i suppose)

Not sure where to find the microcode within here..

Thanks

@ odiebugs and @ PhatAgent:
According to my knowledge only CodeRush will or may be able to solve your problems.


@ CodeRush:
Can you help odiebugs and PhatAgent?
By the way:
Meanwhile there are a lot of users, who are awaiting eagerly a complete guide about how to use your UEFITool. Some months ago you had mentioned, that you will do it, when you will have the needed time. Is this promise still valid? When can we expect your guide?

Figured it out partially. I found the correct keys in volume 3 and 4. I extracted them and the size is 63kb. In that 63kb raw file there are two CPUIDs, one for server parts and other normal haswell-e. Problem is i cant open this file up to replace the individual haswell-e microcode. Ive replaced the 63kb with just the new microcode update 30kb and flashed the bios. But it wouldnt post, Im assuming its seeing that the CPUID of one is missing/and or size mismatch.

Just waiting to hear from him to see where to go from there.

Posted another reply in response to him talking about X99 asus New: AMI Aptio UEFI MMTool v5 now available (6)
