#1 [ARCHIVE] Outdated UBU Tool related Questions, Reports and Suggestions by Fernando 15.09.2013 00:21

EDIT: This post has been written on 02/08/2015

@ all users of the "UEFI BIOS Updater" (UBU) Tool:

Since SoniX's UBU tool is very popular (which makes us happy), the formerly unified UBU thread has meanwhile grown to a big size of nearly 100 pages and 1.500 posts.
This dropped not only the accessibility time of the thread, but additionally made it difficult for everyone to find a specific important post within it.

As a consequence I had the idea (and SoniX agreed) to split the formerly unified UBU thread into 2 separate ones:

  1. A thread titled "[Tool Guide+News] UEFI BIOS Updater (UBU)" (>LINK<), which only contains my UBU Guide and SoniX's UBU News (Updates etc.), and
  2. A new thread (this one) titled "[Discussions] UBU Tool related Questions, Reports and Suggestions", where everyone can post his report, suggestions or questions.

Today I will start to split the ca. 100 pages of the "old" UBU thread according to this plan.

@ all Forum Members/Guests:
Please post your contributions into this new thread and not into the "old" one, which shall be reserved just for the UBU Guide and the UBU News.

Thanks in advance!
Dieter (alias Fernando)

So, as I got, just running this tool with any .rom from my Asus Z68 will it update all de Oroms? Am i right?
So, it is not more necessary to insert all the modules manually. Right?
I did a test and after running all the options the tool renamed P8Z68-V-GEN3-ASUS-3603.rom to bios.bin. So, If I try to update will Azus bios updater recognize?


EDIT:
Thanks for the reply.

I update the Mobo and all ran fine with all Oroms updated. Except the Intel Raid one that was already to the latest. What I just have updated manually was MEI.
The EZ Flash 2 recognized the Bin file and just start updating.
About your reply I did not used the renaming option. I notice that as I opened the tool it renamed my xxx.rom to xxx.bin automatically.

You are right both times.

You shouldn't have used the renaming option.

No, you should rename it to a .ROM file.


@ cybersm:
Thanks for your report.
So what do you think about the toolkit?

A piece of cake. Very nice to use and precise detecting and updating. Really easy. I was always afraid dealing with extracting and inserting modules and checking specially finding new updates for Jmicron or even Intel Network.
PS: I've never update cpus micro codes, for what are those?

@Fernando

It seems I cannot download the 0.996 version...
A page opens where I can click download and then another opens to download it, but then nothing gets downloaded...

Can you also upload it to your SkyDrive perhaps?
[EDIT] I have found it there already. thanks! [/EDIT]

Fernando,

i have used This tool 0.996 version to update the ASUS BIOS 2104 for my P8Z77-V Deluxe.
The ASUS released BIOS 2104 is not up to date about Intel OROM RAID (v 11.0.0.1339), Marvell BIOS (V 1.0.0.1028) and firmware (V 2.2.0.1105), Intel GBe (V 1.3), Realtek LAN component, ..
So, no problem to use this tool.
OROM and Satadriver are well V 12.7.0.1936
Bios Marvell -> V 1.0.0.1033
Firmware marvell -> V 2.2.0.1124
Intel GBe -> V 1.5
Realtek LAN firmware -> V 2.023

The modded BIOS is up and running on my PC.

Question Is a new version of this Tool need to be released each time of at least one Bios module/driver change or do we have manually do the change (carefully) somewhere , in appropriate place of appropriate folder ?
Many Thanks to the author of this tool.

@100PIER
The new version comes out continuously if there are newer versions of Option ROM and EFI modules. The new version can be found if the new GUID, and Device ID.

I suggest changelog in first post, for who are not touched by updates (I.E. in this case, Sandy/Ivy bridge)...

@ Mictlan:
Welcome at Win-RAID Forum!

@ gpvecchi:
Thanks for your suggestion, which I have already realized.
Furthermore I have renamed the thread title.

@ SoniX:
Since you have already renamed your toolkit to "OROM/EFI Replace", I thought about an easy to understand appropriate name myself. My suggestion is to name it "OROM/EFI Module Replacer". What do you think about it?
If you don't want to rename your tool again or if you have a better idea, please let me know it. Then I will change the thread title again.

Regards
Fernando

Hello, I just wanted to say thank you for this wonderful tool, and the fantastic resources on this forum!

I want to report a small bug with the tool...

I have an ASUS Maximus Gene V motherboard, and have been using this tool to update ASUS's "latest" 1903 BIOS. I have noticed that the tool does not find or update the ASMedia SATA6 controller firmware in the BIOS. I had a look at the script, and noticed that the tool should be giving me option 4, for updating the ASMedia SATA firmware, however it does not show option 4 at all, so does not let me update this part of the BIOS.

I'm assuming it's a bug, but please forgive if there is another reason for the tool not to show option 4 with this BIOS.


I used versions v0.9.9.8, and v0.9.9.6 - and both have the same bug.
