@j0nA - thanks for quick report back Good to hear all is well!
Next time it auto updates don't interrupt it If this was due to Win10 Auto-update of the BIOS, you have to yell at Asus and Microsoft for allowing such crap, I've had to help MANY people recover from this "Auto-BIOS-Update" mess

Hi @Lost_N_BIOS
I've read your replies on this read. I am also on same situation my laptop bricked after windows BIOS update (Bios update pushed by windows). My Model is Asus X510UF,
Can you help me to fix this issue, W will take backups before proceed, ill do this probably tomorrow.

Thanks and Regards,

@Nuwantha - Yes, I can help. Please link me to your BIOS download page, not the BIOS download itself, just the page to choose and download BIOS
What is your BIOS chip ID? Look in person, do not rely on what some software possibly told you previously.

DO NOT use Auto, Erase, or Write with programmer, until I've told you that you've made a good backup and we can proceed. Then I will fix BIOS for you to program back in.
Here is a guide with lots of images if you are unfamiliar with using - [GUIDE] Flash BIOS with CH341A programmer
And here is software package - http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?fil...213094641136166

Once you tell me chip ID, then I can tell you what software/version may be best to use to dump and write

Hi @Lost_N_BIOS

Thank you for your response, and thank you for the details,
Sure ill get upload backup tomorrow couldn't buy CH341A programmer yet.

This is the download page https://www.asus.com/lk/Laptops/ASUS-Viv.../HelpDesk_BIOS/
Model is X510UF

My Chip ID is W25Q64JV (W25Q64JVSIQ 1804 and ill use CH341A programmer)

Thanks and Regards,
Nuwantha

You're welcome!!

Software backup will not help for recovery, only dump with flash programmer. But yes, just in case, and to compare BIOS region from your backup with your CH341A dump, send me whatever backup you are talking about.
To fix this, unless you can boot to Windows or DOS now, you need flash programmer + SOIC8 / SOP8 test clip with cable. So to fix, you will have to wait until CH341A + clip/cable is in your hands

For W25Q64JV Use version 1.30 and BV ID, or if you like Asprogrammer better, it works for this chip as well, use BV ID there too.

Hi @Lost_N_BIOS

Thank you so much,

I've bough the necessary equipment (CH341A ),
My issue is CH341A_v1.30 not detecting chip giving me an error (may be i am doing wrong) - I am trying to get a Dump file. Not sure how to do that. But AsProgrammer_V2.1.0.13_XiTongZhiJia able to read chip and Verified. Once read and Verified I've made a backup. Do i need to get any additional things, - Sorry asking lot of question really new to this subject,

@Nuwantha - Please use ASProgrammer 1.40 or 1.41, or 1.30 software and ID as mentioned.
If asprogrammer version you mentioned can read chip, so can 1.30 software and normal asprogrammer software too, you maybe just moved clip between attempts and then got it working later while trying ASProgrammer you mentioned.
What error did you see with 1.30? Some you can ignore, especially if it was about "Access Violation" ignore that and carry on.

I do not want to use the file above from AsProgrammer_V2.1.0.13_XiTongZhiJia because I don't know for sure that this version can read and write to the chip properly.
It may be OK read, but we wont know for sure until you also dump with normal ASProgrameeeeeeeeee1.4/1.41 and or 1.30 software. And then, we still would only know READ is OK if the files match, this would not also automatically mean writes would be OK
I suggested the above software because I know for sure already, that they can read and write to this chip properluy.

Hi @Lost_N_BIOS

Thank you so much for your response. Last time these software's couldn't read chip somehow i think its connection issue. Sure let me try again with those software's.
Really appreciate your time.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi @Lost_N_BIOS

Got it this time, Sorry human error. asprogrammer i didn't select Which hardware is using, marked as "UsbAsp" - Changed it to CH341A. Now its working.
But CH341A programm v1.30 showing me "Chip Main memory and Buffer is Same" Kind of notification.

This is the backup taken after asprogrammer 1.4.1 read and verified.

**Edit
Why we cannot use direct BIOS file provided by ASUS to firmware BIOS chip? I've not yet did it, i am waiting for your BIOS fix file

Thanks and Regards,
Nuwantha

@Nuwantha - yes, usually just connection issue, most any software can read and write "something" once connected properly
Chip and Main Buffer same = Verified / Good << Please send me 1.30 dump, as well, so I can compare with your Asprogrammer dump
You should write with 1.30 as well, unless you like ASProgrammer better, but I'm not sure if it can write to this chip properly

You can't write BIOS from Asus because this is partial/upgrade BIOS file, plus you would then also loose your serial, UUID and possibly LAN MAC ID too (if it was a complete BIOS file, which it's not)

Hi @Lost_N_BIOS

Thank you so much for your response and time, for details,
I've done bad mistake yesterday, but i really though this will fix my issue, Ive used BIOS files on this thread,
[BIOS Modding Request] ASUS VivoBook S510UF/X510UF

This is same as mine Same Model (X510UF), But it didn't fix my issue. Chip is reading now not verifying i am not sure i messed up

It's okay, i needed to up and running my laptop, however this laptop not includes any RJ-45 / LAN address. Only MAC for WiFi. Serial and others also fine.

I have no idea what to do now,

Thanks and Regards,
Nuwantha

**Edit

I have taken total 6 backups 4 are identical (Checked with HxD), So these four taken from AsProgrammer, Below file one of them
AsProgrammer - https://drive.google.com/file/d/17rjssuD...iew?usp=sharing

There are two files, different from above file i am sure one of of these taken from CH341A programmer, not sure which one is.
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1...QhI?usp=sharing

Thank you,

@Nuwantha - If no Ethernet connection, then you do not have to worry about LAN MAC ID, Wifi MAC ID is stored on it's own chip on the WIFI card FW itself
Sorry, I am not sure what is going on above. Where is 1.30 backup? If you do not have, then hopefully I can find serial and UUID in your backup from ASProgrammer and fix later, if needed

I can't guess or tell what programmed dumped something, so I have not downloaded any of the above files.
I already have ASProgrammer dump from you, so do not need again, only need 1.30 dump to confirm ONLY that ASProgrammer can read chip same as 1.30 does properly (This does not confirm write is OK for ASProgrammer)

Anything you write, do it with 1.30 as I've mentioned all along, I am not 100% sure ASProgrammer has been confirmed OK to write to this chip, but you can try it with BV ID.
You should not be writing in other users BIOS, but if you do it should be booting, provided you write it with 1.30, and provided it's for your exact laptop AND is a known working BIOS, and provided it's a FULL BIOS Image (8MB, not 6MB)
None of the BIOS in that thread are full BIOS dumps, they used FPT and were only dumping BIOS region for me to edit, then they flashed back with FPT not programmer. So none of those BIOS can be programmed in with programmer as-is and boot.

Here, program this in with 1.30 and BV ID, do #1 first, if it fails to boot try #2 instead - http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?fil...689051717140086
#1 has your original NVRAM + info padding in place, #2 is stock NVRAM + original info padding. If both fail, let me know and I will make you #3 without this info padding
Both BIOS have unlocked FD, clean updated ME FW, and unlocked BIOS menu

Hi @Lost_N_BIOS

Thank you for your response and time, really appreciate.
Sorry i really messed up, i didn't know 6Mb file is BIOS update file and 8Mb file is full file.
I am using only CH341 Programmer not using AsProgrammer now.

But got this error when i try to flash BIOS,
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1sx3UFce...iew?usp=sharing

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1OS27EW0...iew?usp=sharing

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1UW6SoYE...iew?usp=sharing

I have found this document to fix this " Chip main memory not null"

t4175f16-GUIDE-Flash-BIOS-with-CH-A-programmer.html#:~:text=Attention!&text=Chip%20Main%20Memory%20Not%20Null,know%20there%20is%20data%20there.

But when i mask 8th pin chip is not detecting. What can i do? Waiting for your response, (This was able to fix after many tries)

Thanks and Regards,
Nuwantha

***Update 1

I've able to proceed after 8 pin mask, but now i am getting this error for both BIOS files,
File 1,

Waiting for your response,
