    Hi everyone,

    i modded the bios of the Razer Blade 2014 a little while ago.

    So now i finished the modding of the Razer Blade 2016 Bios.

    Its almost the same like the old Bios Mod.

    There are very nice things to play in there, like overklocking options...:)

    So lets get started:




    BIOS MOD


    What you will need:

    - AFUWINGUI for Aptio V
    - AMIBCP_v5.0.1
    - Optional one of my modded Bios


    AFUWINGUI for Aptio V

    Just Download

    https://ami.com/download-license-ag...IOS_and_Aptio_AMI_Firmware_Update_Utility.zip

    You will find the AFUWINGUI in this directory:


    AMIBIOS_and_Aptio_AMI_Firmware_Update_Utility\amiflash\AptioV\afu\afuwin\64

    Unpack it it and its ready to go.

    It looks like this when you start it:

    [​IMG]

    Just hit the SAVE Button and it will be dumped ;)



    To modify the Bios you will need AMIBCP v5.0.1

    Older Versions wont work. It at least did not work for me.

    http://www.mediafire.com/download/irxk9p1m43kfk68/AMIBCP_v5.0.1.7Z

    Just start it and open the file you dumped. It looks like this now (old pics-but same process):

    [​IMG]


    On the Left side you can choose the directories and on the right side you can enable them.

    Just change the values you want to see in your BIOS to USER in the ACCESS/USE Section

    Dont change things like FAILSAVE or OPTIMAL. These are Lifesavers. Trust me.


    Save it (DO NOT OVERWRITE YOUR BIOS DUMP)

    Make a new one!

    Then just go back to AFUWINGUI press OPEN and then FLASH.

    Works.


    I have made 2 modded BIOS Files:

    This is my original Razer Blade 2016 Bios:

    http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=23478244188828882950

    ENABLED BIOS ( I enabled some features, but if anyone enables ALL of it please share it!)

    http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=53401792698615920043


    I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FAILURE YOU MAKE

    If you want to be sure, just mod your bios your self. I just showed how you can do it.




    so thats it with the BIOS mod. Very simple

    IF YOUR RAZER BLADE WONT BOOT AFTER CHANGING SOME VALUES IN THE BIOS:

    UNPLUG THE BATTERY
    UNPLUG THE BIOS BATTERY. ITS ON THE LEFT SIDE NEAR THE LEFT SPEAKER WITH TWO WIRES
    LET THEM UNPLUGGED
    PRESS POWER BUTTON FOR SOME SECONDS
    PLUG IN AC POWER SUPPLY
    PRESS POWER BUTTON

    then just plug in all the things you unplugged again :) (Please be wise and Power off/ unplug Power Supply before you plug everything into everywhere)

    if it wont help try it one more time. it helped me alot.
    If you changed the FAILSAVE values, this wont help you anymore. Buy a new BIOS or desolder it and Flash it with a Flasher.

    HOPE YOU LIKE IT, IF THERE ARE MODS OR ANYTHING THAT MAKE THE BLADE EVEN BETTER, PLEASE SHARE IT!!!

    Thank you,

    Slightly (or probably totally) off topic, was there any option in 2014 version (or do you know if it's possible on 2015 one) to make the fan control a thing?
    Thanks and sorry for the OT.

    I'd love to control the fan or just push them to 100% much sooner.
    Thank you

    you can change temperature curves in the bios. i tried it but nothing happened. maybe it is controlled by another section.

    you can also change the settings in synapse under state of charge or something similar to cooling mode.

    I'm assuming the fan speed is controlled by Synapse. The two "curves" I see are under the Power tab named "Quiet" and "Cool"

    That's only possible in 2016 ones, sadly; I'm on a 2015 :/

    Thank you!

    If that's gonna work on 2015 ones I'd be very thankful, else congrats anyway, people will need it on the 2016s anyway.

    Edit: opened this thread through email notifcation, hadn't noticed the other one; will try asap and let you know there, thanks.
