    For the 6735s there should be available an official update to SLIC 2.1 because it's on the HP list for eligible notebooks. Another problem with this model is, that even if there's a slic already in it, there's no way to patch it at the moment because the 6735s has a UEFI BIOS.

    I figure if there is an SLIC 2.1 available for 6735s as there is for my 6730b, you have to fool the erompaq.exe program to see the "right" SKU that will allow it to upgrade the SLIC from 2.0 to 2.1.

    Regarding SKU somebody should try to use the EEPROM tools provided here at MDL, set SKU to XP, flash the bios, set SKU back and flash the mod.
    IMO the SKU for Vista and W7 isn't different.


    Anybody want to try?

    Has anyone noticed that HPQFlash expands a FlashDLL.dll into temp folder when running?

    Perhaps this is another file that should be disassembled...

    Hi,

    It seems have been done by MUTANTE and the creator of ADDCC to bypass rom.sig in ROM.CAB.

    Have a look here, in fact the differences listed are in FlashDLL.dll embed in HPQFash.exe (V 4.2.5.3)

    E00EE: B8 |----> mov eax, 1
    E00EF: 01 |
    E00F0: 00 |
    E00F2: 00 |
    E00F3: 50 -----> push eax

    EAX=1 ===> rom.sig Verifying signature is always OK.
    Actually ver.sig is checked and i think it's safer like this.

    In other terms, HPQFlash doesnt check any CRC/CHECKSUM in the BIOS file, so the way to mod double slice BIOS is probably in the bios file himself.

    regards

    Has anyone successfully modded their HP 8510p to SLIC 2.1?

    it has the 68MVD BIOS and so far after a good flash it still shows me SLIC 2.0
