Over in the forums of TechInferno.com some guys have just picked up working on a new BIOS editor software for, so far, mobile Radeon BIOSes.

Until now, only a Dell 7970m BIOS is supported, but the guys are clever coders and may come up with more flexible versions shortly.

It's very worth checking by from time to time there I think. Keep up your good work, svl7, chmod1337 and geischtli! :toast:

That vBIOS patcher works great for my 7970M setup.

Looking forward to this. Hoping this will help with flashing a HD7950 to HD7970.

Thanks for the heads up Bagzz

If anyone is looking for one, I do have an "unlocked" reference HD 7970 bios. Just let me know and I'll send it to you.

Sounds interesting, can I take a look at it? What exactly are the differences to the stock VBIOS?

Is there anyway I can get a copy of the stock Dell Bios?

The Radeon Bios Editor looks great and works on Win2k too! Hooray! :)

...now just how to convince GPU-Z to grab bios file from the oldie R9200 card... :D GPU-Z v0.4.6 did not want to save the bios and more recent versions does not work, lol.

Isn't this a better tool for BIOS modding now? Seems to work reliably.

That does not work on Windows 2000 SP4 ;) Hence this is nothing for me at all :)

There is only one regret - and that it does not show the memory timings, like the old ATI bios editor RaBit did...
