Clevo P870DM easy bios access mod

As you all former members from NBR know I have made a mod for easy bios access on the original Clevo P870DM/G. 

The procedure is the same for any other P870XX series.

Do you know how frustrating it is that every time you want to try a new bios or rewrite a corrupted one you need to disassemble all laptop to access the bios chip? I figured out a method to circumvent that.
So lets begin:
1. Disassemble laptop.
You have plenty tutorials posted online about that so I will not cover that again.

2. Solder jumper wire to bios chip, and after isolate with kapton tape.

3. Solder jumper wires to JTAG 8 pin connector and secure it with double sided adhesive tape.

4. Test

5. Secure everything with tape.

Wish I would have thought of that when I had my Clevo fully naked😂

 

Thats really handy, to have such port underneath a back cover.

 

What I did was a bit more destructive, but worked well in the end - I dremeled a small square out of the metal shielding under the keyboard that was covering my bios chip on my P775TM1-G. Now I can access it by lifting my keyboard.

 

Still, I like your solution better 😎

Yes, but what you did work only with 775 and 751 because of the mobo layout, it does not work with P870
