I don't know where you got that information from
But after checking the opposite side, there was nothing there besides CPU heatsink, MOSFET, coils.

So all api ICS on this board are one near thunderbolt ic and one near memory, close to ite superio chip

I tried that. No dice. Still asking for password

Also after comparing the content it looks like you only zeroed Tse region. I really wish it was that easy. Thanks for helping anyway
