What have you and hellfire been cooking up now?

 

:D

 

Rev #4, huh? Bring on the fire and brimstone Hellfire!

 

LOL

 

Hey Carl. I am also glad to see ya :D

 

I am currently alpha/beta testing the LP B rev4 and after a lil problem with corruption he quickly fixed the error and I am up and running again.

 

I think it's ready for public very soon :D I cannot gain any MHz though, my NB seems to be maxed out. Trying to mod it tomorrow.

 

Everytime we publish a new rev we are talking (and he is working on it ;)) about the new one. LOL! He really is a great guy, we should be glad to have him here supplying us with high quality modded bioses :D

Now all that aside here is a clue to the real world and bios programmers and their labor they give> for FREE. When you do not see them replying to a request that you make repeatedly and repeateldly to the point of almost being a pain> it means they have neither the interest nor the time to deal with a bios request.

 

They do this stuff for free in an effort to 'tweak' their "own" board and if any of the rest of us get a 'kick' out of it then that is a bonus.

 

I have seen a number of bios tweakers that work for FREE, become so dis-enchanted by the constant clamor for something they have no time nor interest in > that they quit altogether. That results in no more bios mods period.

 

Now "hellfire" is way out into uncharted bios tweaking. He is tweaking the entire romsip 'away' from stock and as such may very well cross a "place" that is very much the better for your board that you *think* likes the 1/31 bios so well. If you have adequete bios safety provisions> then you need to be flashing out there with him based on what he says he is trying to mod the bios to 'do better' and you may well find your nirvana.

 

I say this because I do not want 'hellfire' to go the way so many other 'free services' people go when just harangued to death in an area that has no joy for them.

 

Sincerely, RGone...

i write Quick guide if any of u want to do the romsip table mod job....

 

here........

 

ROMSIP TABLE MOD GUIDE

 

Here is the romsip table located on System Bios File(aka Original Tmp file) Size 128KB after decompress

 

There is 6 main ROMSIP table

- 133MHz CPU Interface enable

- 133MHz CPU Interface disable

- 166MHz CPU Interface enable

- 166MHz CPU Interface disable

- 200MHz CPU Interface enable

- 200MHz CPU Interface disable

 

1 Safe mode ROMSIP table.... havent figure it out yet where it is located

 

rom.gif

 

after u done the mod on the file.. its time to put it back in...(2 ways ). either 1 work

 

1) 1st Method ... best way

use this tools:- Modded version modbin

http://downloads.modlabs.net/bios/mod/modbin-lovelust.zip

 

How to use this modded tools?

Here....

 

- Open the bios file with awdbedit

- extract the system bios file

- edit with hex editor tools

- search for romsip table (address: 0000b300h - 0000b90h )

- u will see there is 6 table here

- change the value with :

6Y AX 3A 02 to ---> 4Y 2X 00 00(multi workin again)

exp:

68 A4 3A 02 to ---> 48 24 00 00(multi workin again)

 

(Y,X = can be any number..... and it is not y or x on actual bios

so if it is 61 -> 41 if 68 -> 48)

 

- then save the modded system bios file

- put it back in with Hack version of modbin 6

 

 

should we replace the 6x Ax CA 02 to ---> 4x 2x 00 00 too???

yes change that to ...... change it as 4X 2X 00 00

u get me enduracell... nice

 

now when u done modding the system bios files.

Rename it to Original.bin

u need to put it back in this is the trick part of all job... we need a hack version of Modbin...

 

Here i give all of u the tool.....

Special Thanks to Lovelust from Korea for modding this tools

 

Put Original bios file(512Kb) in same folder with this Hack Modbin tools

let say in folder c:/modbin

 

Modding bios with this method only work with Windows 98

- click run

- type command.com

- cd

- cd modbin

- type modbin

- choose the bios file (exp: NF7D_23.BIN)

- modbin will hang while loading....Hit enter 14 times (then modbin menu will appear)

- Press escape and exit

- Now re-run the program back

- type modbin

- and choose the bios file all over again (exp: NF7D_23.BIN)

- then modbin will hang while loading... hit 13times

- now change the original temp file with your modded system bios file(128KB)

(rename the system bios file to original.bin before u do copy paste job)

- when done... hit .... modbin menu will appear

- then save the bios file.... hit again about 14 times also

until modbin save the bios file completely

- u r done now with the mod

 

GOOD LUCK GUYS.... this is the trick....

 

2) 2nd Method

if u have Modbin solid bios... Like AN7 bios.. use this way to put it back in..........

 

- After done modding Original.tmp file

lets say the file we mod is AN7.bin (biosfile) & original tmp file (System.bin)

- install it to the bios file:

cbrom an7.bin /other 5000:0 system.bin

-then open the AN7.bin with hex editor

-copy the new award compression for the file we just install

-save it to blank file(System.bin Award compression)

 

-Then release all bios module from an7.bin

-until only System Bios file left there

-now re-open back an7.bin the bios file with hex editor

-copy the hack system.bin compression fileand paste it ON original temp file in Abit.bin

-then re-install back all bios module

-this way... Cbrom will do the checksum

 

Sincerely,

TicTac :toast:

It's great that you put that here, I originally saw it at biosmods.com.

 

I have to do a lot of work though since I don't have a Fat32 Partition, so I must use the 2nd Method, a whole lotta typing.

 

Hmm maybe I should make a batch file and save some time. Hehe that was a good idea.

Guys, could you please help me. How-to change PCI bus and AGP controller latencies from BIOS?

 

I wrote standalone program for this and this program works. I check registers with wpcredit and NF2tweaker.

But, ISA ROM method don't work for DFI BIOS and registers stays unchanged. Injection in BIOS also don't work for me. I tried to put jmp to my code in different locations in BIOS, near from bootsector load or before video init, but this don't work. Is there a solution for this? :confused:

 

I can't use wPCRedit and NF2tweaker, because thye don't set registers after Hibernate/suspend.

 

Thanks

You are not able to change the PCI registers from within bios or by using an isa rom/ pci expansion rom. Oskar has implemented something that makes it almost impossible to change pci registers. This used to be possible on the 11/27 bios but all bioses after that have be protected somehow. I am currently working on a way to change, and hopefully it will work.

I would like to take this time to thank, Soundx98 and SAE for testing my bioses and sacrificing their rigs to test my bios. I couldn't have done it without you guys ;).

 

I would also like to say that they are currently testing my newest bios before release, might still take some work, so it may still be a few days from release.

 

I would also like to thank all those people spreading the word about this bios and for giving me feedback to work off of. So far the exprience here has been great, heh our own little DFI community. :nod:

HellFire is a very smart guy.

 

It's obvious that SAE is a great choice to test a bios.

His knowledge and dedication are invaluable to a modder.

 

HellFire also needs to make sure that n00bs and oldfahts can use it without dorking their boards. Even the dumbest MF.

Someone dumb enough to use Winflash.

so who else would be a better choice than yours truely. :D

 

Congratulations Hellfire, over 15,000 views in this forum alone.
