    In Mod12 there seems to be some modules with higher version numbers.

    For example:
    - Marvell 88SE91xx Adapter 1.0.1.0025 now is downgraded to 1.0.0.0034
    - Intel GigabitLanX64 6.2.08 now is downgraded to 6.1.16
    (This according to the text document included with the downloaded file.)

    Did you do this intentional to solve some issues or am I mistaken and mix up the ROM’s?
    Hello Priskvark, the Intel Gigabit EFI is downgraded because the V.6.2 wasn't working as expected as stated by SoniX that is the UBU developer (UEFI BIOS Updater : [Tool] "UEFI BIOS Updater" (UBU)).
    The Marvell OROMs if my mind assist me is an upgrade because i think that the V.1.0.1.0025 is a typo (the 1 is a 0 in the correct versioning) and infact i can confirm that the latest original F16 Beta from Gigabyte contain the Marvel 1.0.0.0034 OROMs.

    Cheers,

    KK

    Hello KK,

    As Marvell OROM was updated from 1.0.0.0027 to 1.0.1.0025 I thought it was less likely that this was a typo (from 0027 to 0025?). So I entered the setup and checked and can confirm that the latest OROM, or rather the highest version number, in fact is version 1.0.1.0025.

    Am I correct when I summarize the difference in GAZ77X-UD5H F16 Mod13 compared to MOD12:

    • What’s updated is the latest SataDriver OROMS and Intel CPU MicroCode.
    • What’s downgraded, due to suspected issues, is Intel GigabitLanX64.
    • Downgraded Marvell 88SE91xx Adapter
    • Not mentioned by you: Intel Boot Agent GE (1.5.53 in MOD12) and Intel PCI Accelerated SVGA BIOS (2170 in MOD12).

    You use the UBU tool to update the mods. Is it possible to use the tool on a Mod and upgrade from there or is the tool only safe to use on the original BIOS?

    I also want to say thanks for your contribution to the community. It’s nice when people use their knowledge and time to help each other as you do!

    Hello Priskvark, thanks for your kind words but my contribution have "contributed" to some confusion...
    The typo that i was trying to remind to myself was relating to a discussion regarding issues with Marvell controller firmware module update that didn't worked when updated and searching here in TTown i've found this: http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...353-print.html but apologize me for this imprecision that generated doubts.

    Last post by NoJuan999 that states "I'm 99.9% sure that the Marvel 91xx rom version 1.0.1.0025 (131 KB) PCI ROM will NOT work in place of the 1.0.0.1033(512 KB) Firmware module in your BIOS. But feel free to try it, just be sure you can recover your BIOS if it fails."

    Even thought there are not so different "numbers" between "BIOS" and "BOOT Loader" versioning that can be checked by Marvell software like in this screenshot:

    http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.p...ach=3658;image

    The thing that was adressing me to the goodness of the update made by UBU is the fact that even Gigabyte in the latest beta for the Z77X-UD5H have incorporated the V.1.0.0.0034 firmware module, but anyway, if you prefer you can mod with UBU the previous-modded BIOS version and retain the V.1.0.1.0025 Marvell OROMs and update new stuffs.

    Regarding the mods or downgrade:

    • What’s updated is the latest SataDriver OROMS and Intel CPU MicroCode. -----> TRUE
    • What’s downgraded, due to suspected issues, is Intel GigabitLanX64. -----> TRUE
    • Downgraded Marvell 88SE91xx Adapter -----> It depends...
    • Not mentioned by you: Intel Boot Agent GE (1.5.53 in MOD12) and Intel PCI Accelerated SVGA BIOS (2170 in MOD12). ----> Not mentioned because are the same.

    Have a nice evening.

    Cheers,

    KK

    A little review on my self-modified F14e BIOS for the GA-X79-UD5:

    Bugfix: COmpared to the previous F14d and F14c, southbridge-attached Marvell SATA and Intel LAN WORK again at BCLK >100 MHz!!!
    iRST Option ROM 13.2 works too.

    Stability is the same as on 14d and 14c. Requires non-k overlocking set to DISABLED, Spread Spectrum Clocking to AUTO (instead of 0.05%), and voltage regulation frequency set to 750 kHz/350/auto/auto/350 to be totally OCCT stable. Means it is actually less stable than 14b since it requires more options and tinkering.

    Hello Priskvark! Some informations to clear doubts (credits and thanks to Fernando of WinRAID ) :

    BIOS modules (PCI ROM, EFI and others) ╗ AHCI & RAID ROM Modules

    Marvell 91xx (SATA3) AHCI/RAID ROM modules:
    • <big>Download links:</big>
      • >Marvell 91xx AHCI/RAID ROM v1.0.0.1038 for DEV_9123< (>MIRROR<)
        Note: This is the newest Marvell 91xx AHCI/RAID ROM module, uncompressed size: 33 KB, unmodified usable with DEV_9123 Marvell 91xx SATA Controllers. Credits go to kgbab for having found and posted the original module.
        Here are some v1.0.0.1038 Marvell AHCI ROM modules, which have been already customized for other DeviceIDs (thanks to SoniX for the checksum correction):


        Note: Credits go to SoniX for the alignment correction.
      • General remarks:
        An update of the Marvell 91xx AHCI/RAID ROM module may only be useful for systems with a Marvell 91xx chip, which offers full RAID support (Marvell 91xx RAID mode option has to be available in the BIOS). For details look <a href="http://www.win-lite.de/wbb/board208-specials/board281-bios-bios-modding/17000-ahci-raid-rom-modules-for-bios-modding-already-extracted/index11.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" ao_sl_mouseout="function (e){}" ao_sl_blur="function (e){}" ao_sl_cont="function (e){}" ao_sl_href="http://www.win-lite.de/wbb/board208-specials/board281-bios-bios-modding/17000-ahci-raid-rom-modules-for-bios-modding-already-extracted/index11.html" ao_sl_vle="null" ao_sl_clk="function (e){}"><acronym>>here<</acronym>.
        Compatibility:
        According to the hex code this actual Marvell 91xx ROM version should support the following DeviceIDs: 9023, 9028, 90A3, 90A8, 9110, 9111, 9120, 9122, 9123, 9125, 9128, 9130, 9171, 9172, 9179, 917A, 9181, 9182, 918A, 9189, 9190, 9191, 91A0 and 91A2.
        Attention: Nevertheless it is necessary to open the ROM module with a hex editor and to look into the 3rd line (offset 20) for the correct Marvell AHCI Controller DeviceID of the mainboard. If the system has a DEV_9120 Controller, the hex code has to be "4B 1B 20 91", whereas DEV_9123 needs an "4B 1B 23 91" entry. Other DeviceIDs need a similar alteration of the related hex code pairs. If the Marvell ROM update with this version should fail, the user may have to take another version, which is more specific regarding the DeviceID of the onboard Marvell 91xx SATA Controller (look
        <a href="http://www.win-lite.de/wbb/board208-specials/board281-bios-bios-modding/16658-bios-modding-how-to-update-pci-rom-modules-of-an-ami-phoenix-award-bios/index3.html#post153740" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" ao_sl_mouseout="function (e){}" ao_sl_blur="function (e){}" ao_sl_cont="function (e){}" ao_sl_href="http://www.win-lite.de/wbb/board208-specials/board281-bios-bios-modding/16658-bios-modding-how-to-update-pci-rom-modules-of-an-ami-phoenix-award-bios/index3.html#post153740" ao_sl_vle="null" ao_sl_clk="function (e){}"><acronym>>here<</acronym>).

        Here are some special Marvell 91xx AHCI/RAID ROM modules:



        Here are the latest complete Marvell 91xx AHCI/RAID ROM modules (incl. Firmware/BIOS and Bootloader):




    <big>Important remarks:</big>

    a) Update of all Non-UEFI and some UEFI BIOSes:






    b) Update of an AMI UEFI BIOS:


    • Many AMI UEFI BIOSes just contain 1 single Marvell 91xx PCI ROM module. It includes everything, which is needed for a proper function of the Marvell 91xx AHCI/RAID Controller. This module is situated within the BIOS file named CSMCORE and can easily been updated with the Aptio UEFI MMTool. The download link to the actual complete module containing the Marvell 91xx AHCI/RAID ROM and the additional Marvell 91xx BIOS is above.





    Hope this will help in understanding what the "marvellous" Marvell does with it's controllers...

    Cheers,

    KK
