hi
i have a 820-3437-B with corrupted efi file
my macbook turns on ok but it shows the folder with questionmark even with a good ssd connected, i replace the spi rom chip from a working board and it boots ok with apple logo and the bar loads up but of course it doesnt enter the system because the spi rom chip is from another mac

i extracted the bin file from the damaged mac can anyone do the process for me to the bin file so i can load it back to the chip and be working?

i really tried doing the process you people explained in this post but i couldnt do it because i dont have linux

i would really appreciate

thanks in advance

Please watch this Video carefully, I learnt all from this video... Fsys & Checksum has to be corrected in order for the notebook to work. Or send me the Notebook serial # & the EMC # of your notebook, I will send you a good updated working file, Just you have to program it to the SPI BIOS & solder it.. Nothing else you have to do.

My friend thank you for answering

I understand the video you posted the problem is that i dont have linux so i cannot use those programs

The bin file i uploaded is from the macbook iam trying to fix so it has the serial number inside it. The emc is 2632 and the board 820-3437-b

Do you need something else? If you could do this and give me the fixed bin file ready to upload it to the chip i would be really grateful!!

Why not use the file that has already been posted at the beginning of this thread…?

You don't need Linux to use a hexadecimal editor.

Thumbs up Re: EFIBIN File MacBook Air A1466 (EMC 2632) 820-3437-B

@Piernov, thanks so much for your video guide. My machine is up and running now. You have a new subscriber!

I received an A1466 820-3437-b machine for liquid damage repair. A prior repair attempt was made and they tampered with the SPI_ROM (no idea why).
I managed to get the machine to power on after doing some board level repairs
but the machine would not boot to the login screen (catalina), the loading bar will reach 100% and the machine just freezes there. on High Sierra it would boot to the login screen, but as soon as you login, it freezes on the loading screen. Ordered a TL866II to re-program the bios. I battled afew hours trying to program the new chip and succeeded eventually using your guide.

It took hours because I didnt have a clue how to use the programmer AND I had 3 bad SPI_ROM chips in a row (whats the chances right ?!?!), worked with 4th IC from donor board.

Thanks so much!

For those of you who want to use the TL866II+ programmer under Linux.

I got it to work under ubuntu.
