You can check your current BIOS version following the steps here to determine if you are on the latest release.
Our release process follows 1 week as a community beta, and then if no major issues are found, this will be promoted to the latest stable release.
Please note that if you’re on Windows, with this BIOS release you need to update your driver bundle. Please update your driver bundle first, and then update the BIOS second.
Instructions for Windows Installer:
- Run the .exe.
- Click yes to reboot.
- Wait for the firmware progress bar to complete, and then the system will reboot.
Updating via LVFS is available.
You can enable updates from testing by following this guide, Release BIOS section.
LVFS may not update if the battery is 100% charged. LVFS uses the battery status to determine if it is safe to apply updates. However if our battery is at 100% and the charger is off, we set the battery charging status to false. In this case you can discharge your battery a few percent, then plug in AC again and run fwupdmgr update.
Note that if you use the EFI shell update with Windows, you should suspend Bitlocker if enabled before updating using the EFI updater.
Instructions for EFI shell update:
- Extract contents of the zip folder to a FAT32 formatted USB drive. Cleanly unmount the drive before physically removing it, otherwise the BIOS update may not function correctly.
- Disable secure boot in BIOS.
- Boot your system while pressing F12 and boot from the thumb drive.
- Let startup.nsh run automatically.
- Follow the instructions to install the update.
To update the system firmware when in standalone mode, you must set the BIOS menu Setup Utility → Advanced → Standalone Operation to Enabled.
This release supports standalone updates without a battery attached. After rebooting, please follow the onscreen instructions to update your BIOS when in standalone mode, which will require moving the power source between both sides of the Mainboard to allow PD firmware to update correctly.
- Update AMD Firmware to fix issues with Linux Kernel 6.5 not booting. This update includes the following Firmware C20MP_PHY_2.14.2, IMU188.8.131.52, PSP_00.2D.00.74 and SMU76.70.0.
- Fix power button LED behavior when doing a hard power off.
- Update power limit table.
- Modify sleep LED behavior.
- Revert PD workarounds for display output causing a crash on resume from S4.
This BIOS update is a bundle of updates to multiple embedded components in the system.
Not all of them use the same version number.
