RU 5.19.0295 BETA

This version improves something from RU users. Note again, I did not fully test it all all!  XD
  1. RU.EFI: Add Shift-F12 and pull down menu to [System] to select the default folder to save the F12 screenshots (which was suggested by one of users)
  2. RU.EFI: Save/load file can be assigned with the mapping file system and directory such as below:
    fs0:123.txt
    \folder\save.txt
    fs1:\123\save.txt
  3. RU.EFI: UEFI variable (ALT =) - Add following attributes
    HR - EFI_VARIABLE_HARDWARE_ERROR_RECORD
    AW - EFI_VARIABLE_AUTHENTICATED_WRITE_ACCESS
    AT - EFI_VARIABLE_TIME_BASED_AUTHENTICATED_WRITE_ACCESS
    WA - EFI_VARIABLE_APPEND_WRITE

    Thus GUIDs are not able to be displayed in full length
  4. Fix scanning PCI devices still didn't work for device function is not at 0 and function 0 is absent
  5. Fix CTRL-UP (Find prev) and CTRL-DOWN (Find next) are not working for Find text and Find hex
  6. Fix screen filled with blue over-sized background at the last page of CPU MSR
  7. Fix ENTER for register info did not work after build 0285
  8. Fix command F (fill) does not work with second 512 bytes of a LBA page
  9. Add Prefetchable for PCI BAR, remove S64 and just put size to next line, looks like below:
    PfM64: 0000000090000000        // prefetchable 64-bit memory
           0000000010000000        // size
    M64:   0000000080100000
           0000000000004000

Known issues:
  • 2017/03/07: It could hang when switching to UEFI variable view.  Will be fixed in next beta release.
  • 2017/05/25: F8 compare memory failed, it always compares to address 0.

RU 5.17.0284 Beta

This version changes lots of codes and fixed more bugs.  I hope it will not break anything else it was supposed to be working :).  The UI is the main change for more user friendly.

Features:
  1. Select SMBIOS directly from type, no more unreadable handle number!
    ALT-9 will list all SMBIOS type description.  You can directly type any string you want to find on that list like below:


    When you press Enter or RIGHT it will show the details with the string displayed in green.  Old version of RU did not have details and strings like this version.

    You can go back by pressing LEFT to the type selection list as previous picture shown.  Then use LEFT/RIGHT arrow keys to go back and forth between SMBIOS types selection and type's details.  Same operations are applied to any other screen list.

    You can also directly type string like: "memory"


    RU will find it for you, no more up/down/page up/down to navigate yourself.  For examples, it finds type 016: "Physical Memory Array" for you.

    What if you want to find more about "memory"?  Simply press CTRL-DOWN to find forward or CTRL-UP to find backward for the last entered string.
  2. The same UI from above SMBIOS is applied to the following types:
    • ACPI ALT-6
    • E820 ALT-F2
    • IDE ALT-5
    • PCI F6
    • Mass storage ALT-F1
    • SMBIOS ALT-9
    • UEFI variables ALT-=
    • System information CTRL-I
  3. EFI configuration table is added to System Information CTRL-I 
    You can directly jump to the selected table on that screen.
    For example, if we want to go EFI_SYSTEM_RESOURCE_TABLE.  First press CTRL-I and it will show:


    Type: "resource"


    Found it!  The selecting bar turns to magenta color with "[Go]" string at the end.  That means you can press Enter to go to that address.


    This is the location of EFI_SYSTEM_RESOURCE_TABLE:
  4. Mass storage now shows all block IO devices like below example "33MB RAM disk".  When there is no component name it will show the device path.
  5. SPD information changed.  Previous RU has wrong information for SPD, this version only shows the module name and size like below:


    And this:
  6. System information shows CPUIDs like below:
  7. SMBIO 3.0 is supported.
 Minor changes:
  1. Fixed ALT-M is not working for SMBIOS.
  2. UEFI variables: Fixed DEL deletes a variable but the list was not updated accordingly.
  3. Highlight color for key help in command line.
  4. CTRL-F and CTRL-D are just for the first search.  CTRL-DOWN and CTRL-UP will continue the last search.
  5. Added more key list on the pull-down menu.
  6. Mass storage: Fixed search did not advance to next LBA.
  7. SMBUS: Fixed compare SMBUS saved file is not working.
  8. RU.EFI screen is moved to the center of 100*31 resolution.
  9. E820: Added 2 more type according to ACPI E820 spec: Unusable and Disabled.
  10. E820: Added Extended Attribute support.
  11. MEMORY: Fixed memory address is always reset while input a new one and RU.EXE could display garbage characters.
  12. SPD: Support Skylake 2 pages SPD.
  13. F1 is changed to display all help lines on info block.
  14. CTRL-F1 is added to display original help window.
Updated 2016/05/18 for known bugs:
  1. RU command line will hang (ex: /D)
