svl7-I tried to download the mod bios without the WLAN whitelist to try and was not allowed too. I'm wondering if you are still testing it and will you make it available to the rest of us? By the way great work in unlocking the bios!

Nope, it's working fine, and it's attached to the first post, you should be able to download it. Public link coming soon.

Read the forum rules, you need 5 quality posts in order to download attachments. The unlocked bios is already available to everyone, public link in the first post. Whitelist bios will follow.

is there any kind of special flashers that we need to use this, or is the flasher bundled in the zip file? (sorry, haven't downloaded nor tried yet due to the fact that i'm waiting for further updates)

and also another question, would you be able to disable the intel hd 4000 and just use the nvidia graphics after this custom bios? i'm having issues with windows 8 where i can't control the brightness since intel hd 4000 is the main controller, nvidia has working drivers so i think that'll fix my problem if it is possible.

Just download it and read the file in there... it's all described.

And yes, you should be able to use the Nvidia card as primary device, but I'm not sure whether this will solve your brightness isssue, due to Optimus your system will always use parts of the HD4000 cause it's needed to bring the picture to the screen.

ah rats, guess i'll have to wait until Intel fixes it for Windows 8

I'll update my bios once a GHz edition for the video card pops up. I'm greatly looking forward to that =D

I get the following error "The version of rom file isn't newer than version of bios."

I have already installed your unlocked version, now I am trying to install the unlocked/no whitelist version.

Please advise.

Damn, forgot to change this... you'll need to modifiy the platform file, first line in the 'common flash' section -> change RESSEN to RESSDIS and try again.

Bought a 6205 card off of Amazon, do a search for product code B004NNZB4A, and swapped it in my Y580 with the unlocked/no-whitelist BIOS. Connected to the 5ghz on my WNDR3700. Works great and much better than the stock 2200N that was in here. Thanks again for your work svl7 on the BIOS and empirehell on your wifi card recommendation!

I installed the Lenovo Y480 / Y580 BIOS version 5DCN39WW (V2.06) [unlocked]. excellent! But there is a problem. I can not change the fan speed depending on the temperature. In the BIOS change but really do not.

There's a whole section for temperature and fan control on the new bios. Try peeking around more.

I agree. I have tried:

Low Speed/Temp 60%/70%/80% fan @ 40 C / 40 C / 45 C / 50 C

+

High Speed/Temp 100% fan @ 50 C / 55 C / 60 C / 60 C

There's a whole section for temperature and fan control on the new bios. Try peeking around more.

Do you say this because you found how to correctly control fan speeds and are being cryptic or have you not tried o.O

Not necessarily all available options will work, there's a reason why some of them are hidden. The bios vendor always uses the same framework, so there might be hidden settings available which don't work with your system.

Extract the downloaded file, it's packed in there.

Yeah .. like WOL wil never work..

the reason for that is that the motherboard in a shutdown state is not supplying power (even with AC on) to the network adapter so it can't be waken.

but options are in the bios.

I'm looking forward for a vbios.. thanks. svl7

Hi! I'm trying to install a 6205 and I want to install the no-whitelist bios

However, after unzipping and executing the file, i get a DC Detect error!

What am I doing wrong? :o

Do you have your AC adapter plugged in?

Yup! I haven't plugged in my battery yet, It's running on power.

Is it my power settings or something?

Ok, then plug in your battery as well, then it should work.

For security reasons you need both, battery and AC in order to flash, or you need to modify the flash settings in order to circumvent these security measures.

Be advised !

If you try to completely disable your INTEL video card using the new settings/options made available in the new unlocked y580 bios you will disable as well :

the laptop LCD screen and the HDMI port

since the lcd screen inverter and the HDMI output are directly connected/tied thru the motherboard to the INTEL GPU on the processor ... no bios option will be able to disable it properly because its not designed for that at the circuitry level

On this machine design you can disable the NVIDIA GPU completely but not the other one (the Intel graphics or IGFX) ... when all enabled the intel one manages the Nvidia and the switching goes on thru the optimus scheme implemented at hardware/driver level between the intel GPU inside the CPU and the Nvidia GPU

That's correct, that's also why I advise all users not to change anything they're not familiar with (first post). There are more options which can cause the system to not boot after changing them.

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo G780.
      If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden additional menus and settings in bios setup menu, in this case you can post your request in this thread.
       
      For prepare unlocked bios you can post your request in this thread, upload your file bios backup into any fileserver and post the download link. Or you can send me your file backup of bios via PM.  For creating backup of bios use attached utility. Extract attached archive directly on the Desktop and run Backup Utility as Administrator (right click mouse, choice "Run as Administrator"). Utility will create archive "results" directly on the Desktop. Send me this archive "results" via PM.
