    Is there an APM-D01 bios that disables the backspacing in text-mode that's messing with the efi console?

    Is there an APM-D01 bios that disables the backspacing in text-mode that's messing with the efi console and the grub bootloader auto booting?

    All the bioses I've found and tested had the same annoying bug. I know Ian MORRISON (linuxium) got a custom bios fix for the Meegopad T1-Morefine M1 so I was wondering if anyone had any luck with APM-D01?
    Alternatively, is there a guide on how to edit the bios? Though honestly if I didn't know he pulled it off I never would have guessed it's even remotely doable to patch and sign a binary bios blob so well...

    Edit: For reference,
    Here's the Chinese official forums if anyone knows Chinese: http://tieba.baidu.com/f?kw=meegopad...96%B9&ie=utf-8

    There's also a guide there with the same bios that fixes the boot loader for the M1: http://tieba.baidu.com/p/3764831112 The file name is 双系统品牌刷成中性logo.zip

    Regarding bios compatibility, if you open the .bin and search for the text string "BIOS DATE", you'll find the date of the bios and following the hardware version. So far I identified that working APM-D01 BIOSs are named T01WT03D while the Morefine M1 compatible bios was named T01V03HuaQiang.

    Anyhow, since I don't know any chinese I figued I might as well put it all up here and hope for someone else to figure this one out.
Working...
