Lenovo Z710, Z510 unlocked BIOS menu / wlan whitelist mod / vbios mod

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I want to upgrade my CPU from a Core i7-4702mq to a Core i7-4900mq. Same socket. Same chipset. My concern is, will the whitelist removal allow me to easily swap between these two without problems?

 

Thank you!

Hi!

For upgrade your CPU from i7-4702mq to i7-4900mq you don't need unlocked bios. There are no CPU whitelist.

So I can just put it in and it will work? Any ideas who might have done the same here? Btw, the y510p has an i7 4900mq variant and an i7 4700mq just like the our z510.

Yes. But i7-4900mq will generate significantly more heat and the laptop may overheat.

As much as my research goes, the 4900mq has the same TDP as the 4700mq which some z510 model has. I'm also thinking of replacing the old panel to a FHD 120/144Hz panel as well. Will this one require a BIOS unlock or a whitelist removal?

Ok. You want to unlock hidden Advanced settings in bios setup menu? Or unlock Lenovo's whitelist for upgrade Wi-Fi card? Or both options?

Hi!

In your bios I can unlock Lenovo's WWAN and WLAN whitelist for upgrade Wi-Fi card, also I can unlock hidden advanced settings in bios setup menu. But I don't know if it can help you with your project.

      Hello !
      I tried a tutorial on the forum to remove the supervisor password on a X260 thinkpad but the winbond 25Q128FVPQ chip is not recognized with the programmer CH341A and ASprogramer (does not detect automatically and not manually). Plugged into the motherboard with a soic8.

      Can you help me with detection?
      Can I find the password with the software or do I have to write it?
       
      Thank you so much !!!

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo ThinkPad T440p / T440s / T540p.
      If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden additional menus and settings in bios setup menu, then you can post your request in this thread.
      Important!
      For creating bios backup and to flash bios mod, you must use any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip!
       
      Just dump your Bios using any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip, then post it in this thread or upload it to any fileserver and send me the link.

      To install the unlocked bios, I prepared and booted a freedos usb. I start the installation by typing flash.bat but every time I get the following error: Error 28: Protected Range Registers are currently set by BIOS, preventing flash Access. Please contact the target System BIOS vendor for an option to disable Protected Range Registers.
      How can i solve this problem ?
