    Hello,
    do you mind reformulating your question? I can't seem to understand it

    dear evaloverde,

    Markus Laire has kindly done a script that greatly simplifies the upgrade of the UEFI firmware. I have used the old version of Markus Laire script in the past and now I am asking Markus Laire if he can kindly publish an update of his script to be able to update the UEFI firmware automatically. The request is directed to Markus Laire.
    Thanks for your patience
    Stefano Colonna

    When you look inside this script, it's an easy change: https://github.com/malaire/misc/blob/master/udoo-x86/uefi-update-104.sh
    Line 56 and 57

    Doing this every time manually is not what computers are for. If udoo activtes DirectoryListing for downloads, the script could parse the version numbers. Another possible solution could be a a symlink on the server, which has the pattern udoo_i_bios.latest. Then the script can download always this file. Currently the only possible way to get available versions, is to scan the webserver and look for http_status 200.

    Dear am1982
    a few minutes ago I executed the modified uefi-update-106.sh file as you indicated and the UEFI BIOS update was correctly executed in my UdooX86 Ultra to version 1.06
    Thank you very much for your help

    Just tried this method and I get the following error when running the curl command
    curl: (51) SSL: certificate subject name (www.markuslaire.com) does not match target host name 'iet.fi'

    Although I've attempted to use the method contained in the BIOS update package to preserve the current BIOS settings while updating under Windows, it has always failed to preserve them. Not wanting to manually reconfigure the BIOS settings, I have avoided updating the BIOS with subsequent BIOS updates.

    Is anyone able to provide a method of flashing a BIOS update that retains the current settings?
