    Laptops are different to desktops, there are more layers to the firmware.

    The micro-code was for sure bugged when using with laptop BIOS, but MMTool by itself works fine, and I updated the iRST module and something else on my MSI BIOS with UBU and it worked fine, but its not a tool that should be used by the normal user that doesn't understand what its really doing.

    Whenever I used MMTool my PC bricks to black screen, I always get Warning that "Saving as non EFI BIOS" after patching microcode.

    You need to patch MMTool so it works with APTIO 5 BIOS or that happens and it indeed results in a corrupted BIOS file.

    You can patch MMtool 5.0.7? I tried patched 5.02.25/27 and even it failed!

    According to your info page you are using one of those China cross-flash BIOS with a 9th gen CPU on your Z170 board.

    You may want to read their thread, but pretty sure that those firmware can not be ME security patched at all.

    Edit: Yep, the OP for those BIOS says:" Make sure you DO NOT UPDATE your Intel management engine firmware at all"

    Edit 2: Just added an additional warning to the OP.
