    Re: RCUnlocker

    No shortcuts. Only modifying 16MB chip is needed.

    and HPUnlocker is useless/dangerous for newer models, don't even bother with that.

    RC Unlocker will not work 32MB files.

    I need to work *both* the 32MB and 16MB BIOS ?

    Soldering the MX25L12873FZNI seems a million times more difficult than the W25Q256JVEQ 8\

    I am close to giving up 8\

    Post your request on the correct topic with serial number and 2 Bios + Ec files.

    Comparing _unlocked.bin with BIOS there are differences:
    Code:
    01B01CA2: FF 01
    01B01CA3: FF 00
    01B01CA4: FF 00
    01B01CA5: FF 00
    
    Comparing original BIOS with _unlocked:
    
    01B01C9A: 02 00
    01B01CA2: 01 FF
    01B01CA3: 00 FF
    01B01CA4: 00 FF
    01B01CA5: 00 FF
    01B01CAA: 64 00
    01B01CAC: 65 00
    01B01CAE: 66 00
    01B01CB0: 61 00
    01B01CB2: 75 00
    01B01CB4: 6C 00
    01B01CB6: 74 00
    01B01CB8: 75 00
    01B01CBA: 73 00
    01B01CBC: 65 00
    01B01CBE: 72 00
    01B01CC0: 30 00
    01B01CD6: 01 00
    01B01CDA: 09 00
    01B01CDB: 04 00
    01B01CDC: 02 00
    01B01CDE: 53 00
    01B01CE0: 2D 00
    01B01CE2: 31 00
    01B01CE4: 2D 00
    01B01CE6: 35 00
    01B01CE8: 2D 00
    01B01CEA: 32 00
    01B01CEC: 31 00
    01B01CEE: 2D 00
    01B01CF0: 31 00

    01B01CF4: 30 00
    01B01CF6: 39 00
    01B01CF8: 36 00
    01B01CFA: 36 00
    Booted and still BIOS password locked 8\

    So why, and how, did those 4 byes reverted back ?
    What am I doing wrong ?

    Can someone please provide me with a clean HP 640 G4 Bios ?

    Re: RCUnlocker

    Well found myself doing poor life choices and getting a BIOS locked HP 640 G4... because I currently do not have and EEPROM reader/ programmer (already ordered one) and find myself terrified for unsoldering it, and I have electronics background still, tried killing of time and managed to extract the EEPROM with a tool found on Major Geeks, BIOS Backup ToolKit V2.0 to "fool around" with RCUnlocker.
    Well RCUnlocker seems to work the file fine, in the end the splash screen display correctly the information for the machine.
    Went comparing the two files and seem legit, the original one after defaultuser 0 has a string S-1-5-21-150966 1523-1617159028-940737068-1001.
    Apologies in advance if being too ignorant, mas can this string be "reversed" to find the password and/ or, If I could read it... can't I write ? I do have admin privileges on current running OS still if all the HP tools refuse do delete/ change the password.
    Would be definitely more easy, and safe, to go popping up the IC.

    Sorry for my late reply, i've lost your answer.

    Attached the original bios. I've tryed the bios alredy unlocked in 8470p thread, but with UEFI enabled there are some problems during power on and power off the OS (seems stuck, but the OS not reporting any error).

    This machine has dual graphics, one HD7470 and the i7 integrated one.

    Thx in advantage

    on how to Edit or clear the BIOS PW on these machines?
    It appears that there are two methods used on this site to "skin the cat":
    1. Using both BIOS 32MB dumps
    2. Using just the Main 32MB Bios Dump where you don't have to remove the entire board which saves time.
    Do you recommend #1 or #2?
    Thanks!
    I have unlocked this model once, and what worked for me is that I concentrate on the chip with the info on it. for this I downloaded the bios .exe from the hp website and cleaned the Me section of the original bumped .bin and at the end merged the same image back to both 32MB chip. The let the system deal with it. You need to be very patient with this task. After you put everything together and turn on the laptop, it will not turn on immediately.

    For this, it will take some time while everything gets updated. The laptop could turn off and on about 3 or 4 times. Making you think that something went wrong. But just hang tight, as after some time you will see the screen letting you know not to turn off the system while everything gets updated.

    On the other hand, would come in handy if Cheese could make us a small utility to extract the info from the chip, such as: Product Name, S/N, SKU #, Build ID, Feature Byte, System Board CT Number, MAC Address, etc.
