Update ASUS Laptop Bios

Update ASUS Laptop Bios

This video will show you how to update Asus laptop bios using a program called Winflash. Recently I did a video which highlighted an issue with the Asus GL702 Strix gaming laptop.
In game lag which would lag the game out every time turbo boost was used. I went and posted this fix on the Republic of Gamers forums and about a week later Asus released a bios fix. They also deleted my current post so thanks for that Asus.
However at least I highlighted an issue and they were able to fix the problem with a bios update.

If you go to the downloads part of the 123myit.com website. And scroll down to the bios link, I have added the BIOS upgrade for the GL702 system I have also added the winflash program.

You can use these two programs to upgrade the BIOS on your laptop. You can actually just download the winflash program and click on get bios from the web and it should go out and choose the correct bios for your model of laptop. If this doesn’t work I suggest doing a Google search for your correct model of laptop and then downloading the correct BIOS version for your laptop. Once this is done you will need to restart your laptop.

iOS 8 Update

This video will show you an iOS 8 Update.

iOS 8

Hi All,
As mentioned in the video above I went to reload the firmware on an iPad mini and iTunes started downloading Apple newly updated iOS 8.
The supported models for the iPhone start at the iPhone 4S and up. The iPad 2’s and up and the iPod 5th generation only.
You can find the direct links for iOS 8 on the links below.
Also before you upgrade you should try and save your signed shsh blobs file. This will allow you to downgrade back to iOS 7 is you so wish.
If you want to check out the Office Apple iOS 8 page you can find it here.

Good luck 🙂
Matt

How to Resolve iOS update and restore errors in iTunes

This article and video is a step by step guide on How to Resolve iOS update and restore errors in iTunes.
So I recorded this video to try and go over all the errors that can come up in iTunes.

Some of the Symptoms you might have when restoring your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch via iTunes are in the form of error codes and alert messages. Most of the time these errors are caused by older versions of software or problems with connectivity, connecting to the Apple servers.

To resolve these problems you can try the following.
Step 1. Update your iTunes to the latest version or even try uninstalling iTunes if your using a PC do a restart and download, reinstall iTunes. To update iTunes on a Mac go into Apple icon and click updates.
iTunes Updates

Step 2. Make sure you OS is up to date. If you are using Windows go into Control Panel and click on Windows Updates. If you are on a Mac click on Apple and then Updates.

OS Updates

Step 3.Check the Anti Virus and security software on your computer. It could be blocking the connection to the Apple servers. In Windows you can generally right click and disable software until you do a restart. And you can turn off the Windows firewall in Control Panel. On a Mac you can System preferences and security and privacy. 123myIT also has a video guide which shows you how to edit your host file on your computer.

This is really important if you are having issues connecting to the following Apple servers.

* Ports: 80 and 443
* Apple servers:
phobos.apple.com

albert.apple.com
gs.apple.com
itunes.apple.com
ax.itunes.apple.com

* Verisign servers:
evintl-ocsp.verisign.com
evsecure-ocsp.verisign.com

Step 4. Unplug any extra devices that don’t need to be connected to your computer. Only have your Mouse, Keyboard and iOS device connected. Try a different USB port on your computer and try a different cable and if that doesn’t work try a different computer altogether.

Step 5. After updating or installing software its a good idea to restart your computer. When your computer is restarting take the opportunity to restart your iOS device.
