    Good News everyone!

    I now possess the new G73JH BIOS, BIOS 211!

    Changes

    - To support WiMax device for Wireless Console 3.
    - The wireless LED will not be changed after WiMax device is turned on or off via Wireless Console 3 interface.
    - Wireless Console 3 will see WiMax but not BT and the system has BT but not WiMax device.
    - Locked USB interface or BT device in BIOS Setup utility and boot to OS, Wireless Console still have Bluetooth icon but Bluetooth device is still present in device manager.
    - Wireless Console will still show BT/WiMax icon after locking all USB ports.
    - To update thermal policy for VGA TSD issue.


    Warning: Do not update your BIOS from an internal or external Hard Drive. Do not use WinFLASH. Do NOT update while on battery. Make sure your USB thumb drive is formatted with FAT32. Use at your own risk.
    Unpack the G73JhAS.211.zip file and copy the "G73Jh.211" file to the root of a USB thumb drive.
    Eject the thumb drive and then shutdown the G73JH.
    Place the USB thumb drive into the front-left USB port.
    Press the Power button.
    Start tapping F2 key until you enter the BIOS.
    Select "Advance" tab in BIOS.
    Select "Start Easy Flash" and by default "FS0" (USB thumb drive) will be highlighted.
    Press right cursor once and (if needed) scroll down to "G73Jh.211" file.
    Press ENTER.
    Wait for Erase, Install and Verify. When the update finishes the laptop will shut down and your done.

    So here it is, the link to the new BIOS:

    CRC32: 3F04D66B

    ATTENTION!
    This BIOS is officialy not out for end-users yet, so Asus does not recommend updating it! Use it only on your OWN risk!
    Update: BIOS 211 is officialy out now. (It is the same as the one linked here)

    It looks like it contains a video BIOS.

    From the German forum. It looks like there is actually a video BIOS in it.

    Mit dem 211er Bios und dem 10.7a Treiber konnte ich keine Abstürze feststellen oder GSOD.

    P.s. nein wir haben euch nicht vergessen, und Arbeiten aktuell an eine Problemlösung.
    Das vBiosmod ändert die Spg, die Clocks und fügt Overdrive hinzu, allerdings fehlt immer noch die Dynamische Powerplayfunktion welche das Gerät im idle (Netzbetrieb) runtertaktet, denn das dort angegebene PowerPlay ist lediglich ein niedrigerer Takt als bei dem Org. Bios.


    Looks like different clocks and Overdrive but missing dynamic downclocking as of yet.

    This looks like it is actually the ticket out of here.

    Well, are any of you going to try it. I'm skeeered. I don't want to be first.

    Where's HellCry? He should go first. He hates his laptop anyway.

    Where's Chastity? She'll do just about anything to her laptop.
