EZ Modded Bios Flash Enables Any Wireless Card In HP Laptops

Someone with the username TTAV134 in other forums has removed the wireless adapter whitelist from the HP Phoenix bios v. F.33 and apparently, many other bios versions, too.  I can confirm that his version of version F.33 is the BOMB! I can now stick any old wireless adapter that I want and forget about seeing the dreaded 104 error on start-up. I'm gonna get me a hot new wireless-n adapter, now. Google TTAV143 and your bios version and go for it.

 

Using the tools and modded BIOS.WPH files he provides, I first flashed with WinPhlash, then shut it down and stuck in a random non-HP wireless-n adapter borrowed from an ASUS Eee PC. It fired up like a rocket and installed the new drivers as Windows loads. I was connected and updating Atheros drivers from Windows Update in no time.

 

I wanted to be sure, so I downloaded and ran WinPhlash v. F.33 from HP and got the error 104 back on start up. I then used the modded F.33 BIOS.WPH files he provided to prepare a bootable USB flash drive with good ol' Phoenix Crisis Recovery Disk v. 1.0.0.4 (Fujitsu) in the way I did it on the post "The EZ Way To Unbrick". (Link below). Phoenix 1.0.0.4 only seems to run on 32-bit Windows xp by the way, so I needed to create a bootable USB flash drive with his hack on one of those machines.

 

Then I flashed it again using the EZ Way To Unbrick with the bootable USB flash drive prepared with TTAV134's fabulous BIOS.WPA file. It restarted perfectly with the card from my ASUS netbook. Thanks to TTAV134's brilliant rewrite of F.33 BIOS.WPA file and Phoenix Crisis Recovery Disk v. 1.0.0.4 (Fujitsu), I can now have any wireless adapter I want in no time.

Download for F.33 whitelist delete BIOS.WPH and tool kit.
