Default [TUTORIAL] fix asus bios with bios from asus web support

here is quick tutoril working on most of asus boards with intel cpu


tools:
1. uefi tool
2. original non working dump
3. update file from asus site
4. little comon sense

first, uefi bios contains from few things but oll you need to know is this

name files as i do not to get confused, later on when you do this few times you can do how ever you like

1. first take look at bios:



2. extract main part of bios and save as BIOS_region.rgn



3. extract main from web update and save as UEFI_image.rom



4. replace in bios we try to fix.bin a part from web update we extracted before this UEFI_image.rom



and save file

note that in order for this to work main part called BIOS_region.rgn and extracted from web update called UEFI_image.rom needs to be SAME SIZE!!!! or it will not work

this method sometimes looses bios key only cos update bios does not contain cers and keys for that
i dont say its working for all boards, but it worked for me for many many times
i take no resposibility if it does not work for you or if something explodes
i dont own or crate this tools and bios, thos credits goes to autors of tools


hope it helps someone
i only wish thios could somehow remain on badcaps only but since tools are opensource...
good luck and start fixing now
pls wote if you find this usefull

Thank you very much for sharing. Can I use this guide for other brand like Acer, etc? Most likely in updating the damage bios with the one from support site.
