How to Use the Phoenix Mod Tool

Before delving into how to use the Phoenix Mod Tool, we must understand the three type of bios files by which the tool can modify.

The first bios file is a regular Phoenix Bios. This type of bios usually has a .WPH or .ROM extension.

The second bios file is an Insyde Bios. This has the extension of .FD or .ROM (occasionally, you will find one with the .BIN extension).

The third type of bios file is Dell Phoenix Bios which has the .ROM extension. You can modify this type of bios with the tool only if the DELL Phoenix Bios has an existing SLIC 2.0. Otherwise, the tool will not modify it. You will be able to modify it in its executable form. Any other Dell bios file which the tool rejects is most likely a Phoenix, Award or Ami bios file and you will need to know how to extract the files from its executable form.

NUMBER 1 RULE: You must have a fresh and untouched bios file to modify. You cannot modify a backup of your bios for you cannot backup the platform elements of the bios which allow the bios to be flashed.

You will need the follow items in order to modify your bios. Download them from the links below and Check Back Weekly for Updated Versions of Phoenix Mod Tool and Slics and Certificates:

1. Phoenix Mod Tool with all SLICS and CERTIFICATES:

A. Download from Official Website (This Link Does Not Include ALL SLICS and CERTIFICATES):…oenix+mod+tool

B. Unofficial Website which includes all SLICS and Certificates:

2. Extraction Tools to extract bios files from its executable format (Download and Install All of these Extractor Tools:

A. Winrar:

B. Universal Extractor:

C. 7Zip Extractor:

D. Find_GZ.2.1 (This extracts Samsung Bios Files from its Executable Format): or

E. Intel_2_AMI (This Tool will Extract the AMI Sting from an INTEL BIOS file if it exists – Some AntiVirus Programs see a virus in it but it is mistaking the Chinese Programming for a Virus): or

F. WinImage and Disk Boot Files: OR OR Boot Image.rar OR

G. MagicISO Maker v5.5: OR

3. RW Everything Report which is needed to modify Phoenix bios files and it is good to have in order to modify Insyde bios files though it is not necessary with Insyde bios files (Dell Phoenix Bios Files do not require it): OR Or (if you cannot use v.1.47, then go to and click on Downloads and find v1.4 to install).

4. To find updated SLICS and Certificates, go here to the official site (Look at Suicide Solutions first post of the first page of this board and scroll to the bottom of his first post to download updated slics and certificates):…Bin-Collection

5. To Find ALL OEM SLP Product Keys to Activate Windows 7 and Server 2008, go here for updated Product Keys:

For those who have regular Phoenix Bios, download your bios from the recommended manufacturer motherboard’s website and unrar the file using Winrar, Universal Extractor or 7ZIP. Most likely the bios will be .WPH or Rom.

For those who have DELL Phoenix Bios, download the dell executable file from Dell’s Support Page Website (

For those who have Insyde Bios, download the file from the manufacturer’s motherboard website. Most likely the file will be .FD or ROM (Sometimes it is .BIN). If it is in .ROM or .BIN, make of copy of these Insyde bios files and leave the .ROM and .BIN alone and rename the extension to .FD of the copy. So, if I have an Insyde Bios file which is 987B34.ROM or 987B34.BIN, for example, I will leave either one of these files alone and make a copy and change the extension from .ROM or .BIN to .FD of the copy and so I will have 2 files which look like this using our example: 987B34.ROM and 987B34.FD or 987B34.BIN and 987B34.FD. We will modify both files.

NUMBER 2 RULE: If You have a LOADER, CRACK, PATCH or BIOS EMULATOR which was used to activate Windows in the past, YOU MUST UNINSTALL THESE GIMMICKS before proceeding to the next step. A tool which will uninstall these problems is VOATK. Download and install VOATK from one of the following links and follow on-screen instructions: OR…tand_Alone.rarOR OR…tand_Alone.rarOR

I Assume you have downloaded your bios file and extracted it.

IMPORTANT: After unraring certain bios files, the only thing left is a bios file that is embedded in an executable format. If you cannot extract this file, try loading the executable file into the Phoenix Mod Tool and modify the bios within its executable form. Acer, Some Fujitsu-Siemens and some Lenovo bios files will allow this.

Place all original bios files in a new folder and place this folder and its contents inside Phoenix Mod Tool folder.

Click on PhoenixTool.exe to open. When opened it will look like this illustration below:

In the Phoenix Mod Tool, find ORIGINAL BIOS. Load your original bios in this field by clicking the button to the right of the field.

After loading the bios, it will parse the bios file to see where all the headers, markers, slics and pubkeys are located and give you a popup of where these files are located in the bios.

Next, we need to choose the Manufacturer of your bios. Presently there are only 3 manufacturers in this field. If your bios is Lenovo or Sony, please choose that field from the drop down menu that is in the button to the right of this field. If you bios is NOT SONY or NOT LENOVO, then choose OTHER.

Next, we need to load the SLIC which we want to use to modify our bios. Click on the button to the right of the SLIC field and choose your SLIC from the different slic folders which are in the SLIC field. It is recommended to choose a SLIC which matches your bios. For example, if you have a SAMSUNG bios, choose a SAMSUNG SLIC and do not choose a NON-SAMSUNG SLIC.

The next step is to load the RW Everything Report if your bios file is PHOENIX. To properly make an RW Everything Report, open RW Everything Report and click on ACCESS – ACPI TABLES and the ACPI Tables will load and open. When ACPI Tables open, click anywhere within the ACPI Table and then click on CONTROL + F2 Keys to save the file. DO NOT CHANGE THE NAME but leave it at is default name: AcpiTbls – You do not need this file for INSYDE BIOS FILES unless you cannot activate windows. Then create a report and load it with your INSYDE bios to correct any problems with your first modified inside bios. You do not need an RW Everything Report for DELL PHOENIX BIOS FILES.

You do not need to choose a Certificate unless you want to make sure the certificate matches the slic which was chosen by you to modify the bios. Note: Matching Certificates for SLIC 2.1 are in the same folder where SLICS 2.1 are located (Located in SLIC21 Folder).

Now you are ready to modify your bios. Don’t worry about the ADVANCED BUTTON (Leave at Default Settings) but click GO BUTTON and this will begin the process of modifying your bios. When finished go to the next bios file, if there is more than one, and modify each one in the same manner by which you modified the first one.

For those who have Phoenix Bios but are not Lenovo or Sony bios files, it is best to flash your bios in DOS, using Phlash17 on a bootable USB flash drive along with modified bios file. Download Phlash17 from here: 17/Phlash17.rar OR To use phlash17 in DOS, type: ph161700 /x /FORCE /O /C /S <NAME OF BIOS FILE> <ENTER>

For those who have Phoenix Bios and are Lenovo and Sony bios files, flash bios with the flash tools that come with it.

For those who have INSYDE bios files, it is best to flash in Windows with the INSYDEFLASH.EXE file that comes with it, if any. If you cannot flash in Windows using INSYDEFLASH.EXE, flash from DOS using FLASHIT.EXE. Download flashit.exe from here: OR To use flashit.exe in DOS, type: flashit <Name Of Bios File> /all <ENTER>

How to Modify and Flash a Lenovo Bios

We are going to use a real and true Lenovo Bios file to modify and test.

1. Download one of the 2 Lenovo bios files from Lenovo’s website from links below.
-Bios Download Link (32 Bit):…s/7uuj36us.exe
-Bios Download Link (64 Bit):…s/7uuj36u6.exe

2. Unrar the file.

3. After unraring the file, find the 2 folders 7UET79WW and 7VET80WW. In these 2 folders contain the bios files.

4. The 2 bios files in 7VET79WW FOLDER are $01B8200.FL1 and $01B8200.FL2.

5. The 2 bios files in 7VET80WW FOLDER are $01B8100.FL1 and $01B8100.FL2.

6. Here is the part which must be remembered. In A Lenovo bios that we want to modify, we are only concerned with this number: 200

7. Therefore, we find this number in $01B8200.FL1 and $01B8200.FL2 located in 7VET79WW folder and not in the 7VET80WW FOLDER.

8. Of the two bios files with the number 200 in them, we only are concerned with the .FL1 bios and ignore .FL2 bios file.

9. Therefore, we are only going to modify the $01B8200.FL1 bios file and ignore $01B8200.FL2 bios file.

10. When you load $01B8200.FL1 bios file into the Phoenix Mod Tool, it will begin to parse the file.

11. After parsing $01B8200.FL1 bios file, a window will appear showing what SLIC is presently in the bios file and that slic is lenovotp-7u.

12. Therefore, we need to use SLIC lenovotp-7u 2.1 to modify it – the point here is to choose the exact slic v2.1 that matches the slic 2.0 that is in the bios in which we are going to modify.

13. After loading $01B8200.FL1 bios file into Phoenix Mod Tool, choose LENOVO from Manufacturer drop down menu. THIS IS IMPORTANT AND MUST NOT BE IGNORED.

14. Next choose SLIC lenovotp-7u 2.1 from the folder of SLICS21 and then load your RW Everything Report and click GO.

15. After Phoenix Mod Tool finishes modifying the bios, open up the folder and you will find 2 new files that were made during modification of the bios.

16. One file that was made is $01B8100.ROM and the second one is $01B8100_SLIC.ROM.

17. Take both of these two files, $01B8100.ROM and $01B8100_SLIC.ROM, and do not rename but place in the folder of where WINPHLASH is located.

18. Now, we need to modify some settings in Winphlash.

19. Find PHLASH.INI file and open with Notepad.

20. When PHLASH.INI opens in Notepad, find [UI]. Click underneath [UI] and add this:Advanced=1 and hideall=0 if it does not exist or if it exist with different values other than 1 and 0, then change those values to correct ones.

21. Next, in PHLASH.INI find BackupFile= and make sure the backup file is $01B8200_SLIC.BAK. Therefore, it will read in PHLASH.INI as BackupFile=$01B8200_SLIC.BAK.

22. Next, in PHLASH.INI find ImageFile= and make sure image file is $01B8200_SLIC.ROM. THerefore it will read in PHLASH.INI as ImageFile=$01B8200_SLIC.ROM

23. Now save PHLASH.INI changes and close out.

24. Now you are ready to flash your bios.

25. Open WINPHLASH – When Winphlash Opens, When winphlash opens, find SPECIFY NEW BIOS FILE and navigate to $01B8200_SLIC.ROM located in 7UET79WW FOLDER.

26. Don’t worry about backup bios file – Next click ADVANCED BUTTON.

27. When Advanced Window opens and At flags, tick verify block after programming and disable Axx swapping automatic detection.

28. At DMI chose update the bios and not the DMI.

29. Press OK and then flash the bios and follow on-screen instructions.

30. Congratulations, you have just modified and successfully flashed your lenovo bios.
