That's good to know! It's quite a service, so thank you in advance for it. I'll be getting my X240 project laptop soon and I'll have a bios in need of some modding.

 Here's my Google Drive link:

If possible, I'd like all the whitelists removed and all the extra BIOS features. I'm trying to use a different WWAN card, WIFI/BT card, and screen, but it would be nice to have all the whitelists removed. The extra options would also be very nice for tinkering.

Thanks!

Hi,

 

Here is my BIOS-dump of my X240.

Could you please remove WLAN whitelist and unlock the Advanced Menu for it :)

 

Best Regards Karl

Hi!

Yes, if you want, I can unlock hidden advanced menu in your bios, also I can unlock WWAN and WLAN whitelist.

I'd like to have my bios unlocked as i changed to larger SSD and it is no longer booting.  Thanks

I think your problem doesn't related with bios, so unlocked hidden advanced menu and unlocked WWAN and WLAN whitelist can't solve your issue.

Hi Klem,

 

I Somehow managed to brick my bios.

It wont go into POST, even CAPS-Lock LED didn't on a connected keyboard didn't respond. I took a dump, found a "fresh" BIOS, flashed it onto the chip, it goes into POST again but it has a supervisor password set. Any chance to get rid of it?

 

After it started with the new BIOS i tried the bricked dump again, just for fun. Still didn't work. Flashed the new BIOS a second time, and it boots again but still wants a SVP (after telling me error 0183 Bad CRC in Security Settings in EFI Variable).

 

I can upload both binaries if you see a chance to get it working again.

      I have a iBuypower CZ-17 laptop, with a 2012 AMI BIOS that has E1762 as the version, which I believe means I have an MSI G70 motherboard. It has a 675MX GPU, but it's not useable in Windows 10 despite being "seen" in the device manager. I believe an updated, unlocked BIOS would fix my issue and have located the thread on this site with the BIOS I need.

      First of all, am I right? Will this fresh BIOS make my laptop that originally ran Windows 8 work with this old GPU?

      And second, I created this account, will wait 24 hours and made this post. Is that enough to allow me to download the file, or do I need to post elsewhere?

      Thanks!

      A part of my BIOS got corrupted that controls my laptops backlights. Other methods like the Gary Key fix did not work for me because I do not get any light up during post. i followed this guide  that says I need to extract and use the 6MB portion of an 8MB bios dump, only AFUWIN tells me "Error, ROM file size does not match existing BIOS size which is because my laptop BIOS size is only 5.87MB.  I don't need to flash the whole BIOS, I only need to flash a portion of it. 
       
      I've searched everywhere online for a dump of my laptop model but non exist that I know of.

      I fiddled around with modding my laptops BIOS to unlock XMP profiles and hopefully seeing if optimus could be disabled. After flashing my modded bios and trying it out, I noticed that my keyboards backlight no longer turns on. I was unaware it requires an official BIOS to function. They backlights wont turn on unless ASUS ATK package is installed but now it seems it also needs an official BIOS?
       
      The modded ROM and tool I used if anyone has any experience with this and doesn't mind telling me what to enable/disable, or anything else i can do to re-enable them

      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.
