    PIPO X8 Modified UEFI BIOS, No Splash Screen

    Hi All,
    Full Story of how I get here on this forum
    Succesfully managed to strip the splash screen from PIPO X8 and upload the modified BIOS.
    I altered the PIPO X8 ROM using the Aptio Change Logo tool 5.0.0.2, pulled the image out, coloured in black, saved as png and reimported into ROM, saved whole ROM as new image.
    However this modified PIPO X8 BIOS ROM would not flash using the AfuEfix64.efi tool.
    Booted to UEFI shell by pressing DEL on startup, and selecting built in UEFI shell
    This boots to a 32 bit shell.
    flashed using "fptw.efi -f biosname.rom -BIOS"
    Rebooted and now have a black screen during boot, leading into normal boot sequence.

    Now I need to see if we can alter the sleep settings. PIPO X8 will brick if you select S5, as it has no mechanical switch. This setting needs to be fixed to S0. Can anyone help to change this ROM to that?
    Thanks

        Hi Trebor,
        Afraid it hindered LOL.
        Tried to flash the X7S bios, to the X8, I can let everyone know that it's a bad idea, and the X8 no longer boots, although it does power on.
        I will have to flash the SPI BIOS chip back to X8 using a programmer.
        O well, little more learning I guess.
