apparently that is a working EFI
Yes, I hoped so as well, but when I tried as suggested to "mod my Uefi" to disable CFG Lock, I wasn't even able to start modGrubShell, because when I did, I immediately got sent back to the boot options screen. And now I really don't know where to start troubleshooting.

Did you enable legacy option rom in bios?

Try this, add modgrubshell.efi as a boot entry and boot directly to it.
Well, I tried that (At least I think. I just typed in the file name to the boot Option selector, because in Tools I could just choose the normal shell.efi) but then I got the Dell panic screen.

You shouldn’t be typing anything in. If the file doesn’t show make sure the file is there on USB, try another usb, redownload it, copy it over again, double check you bios settings.

I redownloaded your EFI to be sure, but when I unzipped it, there was no modgrubshell.efi in the Tools folder. Can I just download it from GitHub?
