Today I checked how to flash BIOS on Progear HX1050 webpad. Basically there are two ways:
I do not know does they were provided with default installations.
Flashing under GNU/Linux (Debian ‘testing’ in my case) is simple:
sync ./fpFlashBIOS -w:pb_10404.rom
Application will write some flash block (and verify). Then reboot to check does everything is OK — due to fact, that flashing clear BIOS settings external USB keyboard is recommended. Pressing
F2 during bootup (when white screen is shown) will enter Setup.
Beware: unbricking can be hard — flash chips are soldered…
