Lenovo Y400 / Y500 - unlocked BIOS / wlan whitelist mod

Recommended Posts

i've been tryin to find the recovery for ages, seems like all the other 8.1 iso doesnt work on my laptop. do you still have the exact name of the file you downloaded? (or the torrent name?)

It's not a recovery with windows.I did a pure install from null with USB drive.Will fit any windows 8.1 iso single language to use your license.

When I installed my OS again I put a windows 8 clean os into my usb and checked OEM install, that way it took the license from teh laptop itself.

I don't knwo if that is what you are asking.

sadly not all of us have credit cards. and we're just on the breaking point with frustration.. and we must make 5 posts to download the tools we need. I guess i won't be fixing my laptop tonight. I understand that the site owners need the money and stuff, but surely there must be a better way. My laptop (y500) boots with a blank screen without loading the BIOS and keeps restarting. Sadly enough, changing a setting in svl17's modded BIOS is what caused the issue. This laptop cost a fair amount and it's really fast.. but thanks to this guy's BIOS and my own laziness to "load setup defaults" I guess this laptop's busted.

I give up. but i gotta say, extorting money to download the only files that can fix the issue, is really LOW. Thanks techinferno. Let's hope I can make "5 quality posts" with my frustrated mind and weary body at 1am in the morning.

Update: I've made 5 quality posts and instead of adding to my post count, the mods are subtracting my posts. I made 12 quality posts and I had 3 credits. Now I have 2. This is bordering on totally unfair.

Hey Guys,

In Bios 2.04 it shows it supports Raid or at least shows Raid. Does it really support it? I been trying to read up on him but I've haven't found a clear answer..

Thanks

Updated my BIOS last night for my y500. Worked like a charm with no errors, and it was easy as pie. Now I cant wait to get my new wifi card so I can stop with the drops on that piece of crap centrino 2230. I don't have a lot of experience flashing bios and I have only ever done it with bios provided by the manufacturer so I was a bit nervous I was going to brick my laptop but it was smooth sailing.

Thanks svl7!!!!

When I try to back up my bios using CMD, I get the error message "The program or feature "\??\C:\Users\Tyler\Desktop\dos\fpt.exe" cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows" Is there a solution to this problem? Thank you.

How do we check the version of bios?

From BIOS you can see the version or from dxdiag under "System" tab in System Information it says the BIOS version :)

Did you try it under compatibility mode?

svl7 this guide is great, except I am confused on how to get a modified bios file. I have all of the utilities downloaded, but I continue to get compatibility errors when I try to run them. Not sure what to do from here, can you help? I have a bootable usb drive ready.

Will the mod bios work with the original 2.04? I just want to make sure because the first post just say 2.02 and 2.03 :D

Yes, it will work fine with stock 2.04

I'm thinking about undervolt cpu (and gpu?). With original bios, I cant change setting using intel xtu. Will I can using this modded bios? Or what tool should I use cause I read that undervolt using bios can cause system not boot?

      Hello everyone! I am looking for an answer to a problem I cannot find a solution to ... I purchased an Amd wx 4150 MXM GPU module su e bay to upgrade my HP 8570W Mobile Workstation which is currently equipped with a Fire Pro M4000. Once the new GPU has been installed, the PC screen no longer turns on but works only with external monitors connected via the docking station. The same happens once the drivers are updated! If I put the old card back on, the integrated monitor starts working again ... How can I fix it?

      Bios Release Version – v2.0.0
       

       
      Updated or Modded Items:
      A11 UNLOCKED BIOS FOR m18Xr2 (UNLOCKED BY SVL7 AND FULL CREDIT GOES TO HIM FOR UNLOCKING!)
      SVL7 Also created the PRR2.EXE tool that allows you to flash the new bios by unlocking it.  (FULL CREDIT GOES TO HIM FOR THAT FILE PRR2.EXE)
       
      Here are ALL the things I've added, modded, and enhanced on this bios -
      I've added FULL LEGACY SUPPORT ON THIS BIOS with ONE or TWO CARDS (SLI).  You can FINALLY use Win 7 OS on your machine and run the 900 series GPU's! 
      This is a MAJOR breakthrough!
       
      LEGACY SUPPORT Confirmed.  Works with 900 series GPu's in single OR SLI formation Updated the Intel RST Legacy to v12.9.0.2006 (Supports TRIM in RAID0 - CONFIRMED) Updated Intel RST UEFI to v12.9.0.2006 (Supports TRIM in RAID0 - CONFIRMED) Updated the ONBOARD Video Card for the HD3xxx to v2171 - FROM v2132 Updated ONBOARD Video Card for the HD4xxx to v2171 - FROM v2132 Updated the LAN Firmware & PXE Boot from 2.0.5.9 to v2.0.6.6 ADDED NvMe Support for m18xr2 ADDED M.2 support for m18xr2 Updated CPU Microcode to v29 for the 2900 CPU's Updated CPU Microcode to v1c for the 3900 CPU's Updated GOP Driver for Intel Sandy Bridge CPU Updated GOP Driver for Intel Ivy Bridge CPU Updated MAIN GOP Policy module for the m18xR2 Eliminated some code that wasn't used in the m18xR2 Updated CSM Module (v2) Streamline some coding to make mod(s) run a little more efficiently (v2) Added FPARTS.TXT to rar file in v2. (I had forgot to add it in v1) v2.5 to be released shortly.  I've updated a few more modules that I didn't realize could be updated.  (It's only 3 modules, but it's still an update!)   It should be released in about a week.  Hope this helps ya'll!  
      Instructions to flash:
      Use a flash drive to create a boot disk into dos Unzip ALL files into the root of the flash drive (flash.bat, r2final.bin, fpt.exe, flash.bat, prr2.exe, fparts.txt,m18r2.hdr, m18r2.hdr.bin, readmefirst.txt) BOOT INTO DOS – Note, that when you set the bios to legacy in order to boot into dos, you MAY have to reinstall OS!  (Just be prepared to reinstall no matter what) Once you boot into dos, run the file flash.bat It will unlock your bios (THANKS TO SVL7’s BIOS UNLOCKING TOOL – ALL CREDIT TO HIM FOR THIS TOOL!) Let it flash… Reboot your pc, and enjoy the MASSIVE updates!  
      Be on the lookout as I do plan to release newer version with more updates in the future.  However, it wont be for at least a few weeks as I'm now working on legacy support for the m17xR4 and several other systems.  So please be patient!
       
      ENJOY!

      NVIDIA 'Maxwell' VBIOS mods
       
       
      Here you find modified VBIOS versions for the mobile parts of the Nvidia 'Maxwell' series.
      The VBIOS versions in this post are tweaked for performance and versatility. You'll get almost complete control over the performance parameters of your GPU.
      List of available VBIOS mods:
       
      Nvidia GTX 970m - 'OC edition' rev0 - >> 6 GB Version << - modified by @johnksss & svl7 -> see attachments Nvidia GTX 980m - 'OC edition' rev0 - >> 8 GB Version << - modified by @johnksss & svl7 -> see attachments  
      Screenshot demonstrating the capabilities of the 970m versions:

      >> Read the instructions carefully before flashing! <<
      If anything is unclear after reading or if you have additional remarks, please post in the thread.
       
      Flashing:
       
      - Go to the device manager -> 'Display Adapters' -> chooser your GPU, right click on it and choose disable
      - Flash the VBIOS with mnvflash, a modified version of nvflash (see attachments). Here are detailed instructions for nvflash in case you aren't familiar with it.
      - After the flashing is done: Enable the GPU once again in the device manager.
      - Reboot
       
      Do NOT use driver 347.09, it's broken and useless and won't allow you to overclock, even with the stock firmware.
      Don't distribute the files hosted here outside of Tech|Inferno. Don't modify the files you download here.
       
      Donation link in case you want to buy me a beer

      Thanks and cheers!
