How to downgrade firmware HP 135W
1. Desoldering EEPROM W25Q64 from Motherboard (PCB Board or Formatter Board)
– To replace the microcircuit, remove the plastic part of the case on the right side. We disconnect the wires and cables. Remove the Formatter and turn it over. We find the Winbond W25Q64 chip, maybe another compatible SPI-flash Programmer (or Mini Pro TL866A TL866CS…Which can support W25Q64 chip). Using a soldering station (two soldering irons) and tweezers, remove the EEPROM W25Q64.
