    This is for all the users that killed their EZbook 3 Pro by flashing the BIOS.
    You need to flash the BIOS SPI flash chip (GD25LQ64) with an external programmer (such as the CH341A) and a 1.8V adapter.
    To do this you have to solder some wires directly to the motherboard. The clip that it often used with SOP8 chips won’t work because this is a WSON8.
    If you are unable to do this by yourself, you can bring the notebook to a PC or electronics repair shop specialized in hardware repairs.
    I can also do this work for you for cheap, but you have to send the notebook to me.

    Hi, I have the 02/01/18 bios on my EZbook 3 Pro, the same as @mike. I have just flashed the unlocked version via AfuEfix64.efi and it has worked perfectly. I now have the advanced settings. Big thanks to @giovanni for the unlocked bios and guide!

    I notice the “Main” tab is missing…. is this normal?

    Yes

    Dude, please stop.

    If you don’t like it you can tell it, but don’t criticize or at least help improving what you think it’s bad

    Just read the first post, the line above the download link.
    I don’t think that’s difficult 😉

    So it is better not to flash the bios?

    You do it at your own risk.
    Most users did not have any problems.

    Why did this happen to him?

    Actually, I don’t know. I think there is a problem with the EFI shell that somehow flashes the flash (BIOS) chip incorrectly. Or maybe the hardware side is poorly designed when it comes to flashing the memory and it corrupts the data in the process. I’m not sure because it’s an inconsistent problem.
    I checked the dump of the original BIOS when some users sent me their EZB for repair and it’s a perfect match with the ones posted here, so it’s not a compatibility issue.

    the screen is off and the computer does not start

    You need to flash the BIOS with an external programmer.
    If you are not able to do that I can do it for you (for cheap).

    @benulations I don’t think it’s related to the modded BIOS but you can flash the original BIOS without problems

    UPDATE: took a chance and flashed it from the emmc drive. all went well, I have advanced options now. however, I disabled the cpu power management but my TDP in HWInfo still shows 6W. What did I do wrong or is this setting just present in Bios but has no effect?

    Read the workaround for unlocking Power Limit 1 in the first post 😉

    Don’t think so. I don’t own this laptop anymore

    Be careful when dealing with li-po or li-ion batteries because they can be quite dangerous
