If I replace cell 4, would it be possible to unlock?

I would replace cell 3 first, then [probably] next cell 4 and after balancing all four cells would try to connect the battery to the notebook

Firmware version: Please let me know which bits/bytes from the above data readback represents the firmware version

Posted by: @kevin

Actual chip model/marking: BQ30Z55

Block 0x23 data: 05500036003400038000010003

So, first 2 bytes encode device type

0550 = bq30z55

Next 2 bytes encode firmware version

0036 = v0.36

Then there are some additional parameters like fw build, IT version, chip release etc.

At present moment this battery model not supported even for remote session.

 

Thanks for the info.

 

Would it be possible to repair this battery by replacing the BQ30Z55 with a new chip and then reprogram it?

Can you read your old chip ? Can you write the dump back ?

If it's not supporting by NLBA ...

If chip is brand new then yes, it will require bqEVSW and ev2300 for reprogramming and configuration.

We still not have any tutorials on the forum for this chip because its not supported.

But you could use Texas Instruments Application Notes and Technical Reference Manual for bq30z554 (catalog item). It uses same programming concept as bq30z55 (non-catalog item) which is according to TI policy considered as custom device for exclusive Pack Makers.
