With the vendor tool "ROMPaq for HP Notebook System BIOS (68GVV) – FreeDOS Bootable Media"
one is only able to DOWNGRADE the HP Compaq 615 to a BIOS revision "F.06" dated 3 Aug 2009
which is much older than the version which is already on the laptop (F.0B dated 29. Oct. 2009).
The version expected to fix some laptop bugs is F.0C dated 23. Nov 2009.

Thus, the problem to have a working flasher to flash the most recent HP Compaq 615 BIOS using
Linux or DOS still exists.
