I have patched the ASUS UEFI GOP Updater tool so that it skips the compatible motherboard check. With this patch the tool will blindingly continue to download and flash your card. For SLI configurations each card must be flashed separately just like the original tool.
Disclaimer: This is my own work and has nothing to do with ASUS. Neither ASUS or I can be held responsible if you manage to brick your system with this tool. This is provided on a USE AT YOUR OWN RISK basis. If your motherboard is not compatible with UEFI GOP it will BRICK your system FOR SURE. No one can be deemed responsible for using this other than yourself. So do your research and be absolutely certain your motherboard supports UEFI GOP.
Instructions: 1) Download the original ASUS tool (see HERE), install and reboot. 2) Download the patched executable: http://www.necrosan.com/rog/ASUS_UEFI_GOP_Tool_patch/ASUS_UEFI_Nodens.rar (New host courtesy of Necrosan:)) 3) Extract the executable from the .rar archive in "C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\UEFI" while overwriting the stock one that is already there (You can backup the old one if you so wish). 4) IMPORTANT: Run the tool and leave it running until it looks like this: (Image at the end of the post due to a bug with the forum editor and image attachments) 5)Reboot and disable CSM:)
Special thanks to my testers: Fefquois and furrybob. Their help testing was invaluable as I do not currently have any system without an ASUS board in order to test myself.
Do not post on this threads questions asking if your X-Y-Z brand and model board is compatible with UEFI GOP. I do not have the time to do that research for you. Research your board yourself or do not use this tool.
If your system has an ASUS UEFI GOP supporting board then you do not need this. Use the original ASUS tool instead.
Extra Notes: A) On platforms with on-board graphics set init options to PEG first. B) If you are using Logic Virtu disable it prior to flashing.
Hi. I recently got a GTX 650 Ti, and I'm using it on an AMD FX8350 and an Asrock 990FX Extreme 3 (with uefi bios). I wanted to update the vbios with the UEFI compatible one, so I tried this patched version but the app fails to work. I monitored the connection with Wireshark and I found that the URL is wrong, since it tries to search the txt file on "liveupdate01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/LiveUpdate/Release/NV/11c6/11c6842A.txt", but the correct URL is "liveupdate01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/LiveUpdate/Release/NV/11C6/11C6842A.txt" (11C6 both on subdir and filename, instead of 11c6). So I tried to download the txt file and the bios files through the browser and, setting up a local webserver (apache based) and adding the pc localhost ip as liveupdate01.asus.com redirection on the host file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc), the app seems to work, it "downloads" the new vbios file, renaming its extension as .rom, but it then fails again (over)writing on the already shown letters "Download failure" or something like that. I found that in the txt file the vbios filesize is wrong, so I tried to correct it, but to no avail. There's also a checksum number but I don't know what kind of checksum is it, since it seems dec based but I don't know how it's calculated. Can anyone help me? Is it possible to fix this issues? Btw I'm trying it on Windows 7 sp1 64bit. Thanks.
