Lenovo Y410p / Y510p - unlocked BIOS / wlan whitelist mod / vbios mod

Recommended Posts

So... can anyone who isn't on v3.05 test flashing the EC only for me?

Just download the attached archive, put all files on the root of a DOS bootable usb drive and run EC.bat.

Please check the bios version and EC version in the BIOS setup menu before doing so. If it flashes then check afterwards and let me know whether it worked and only the EC got updated.

Thanks!

EDIT: File removed, thanks for testing!

Will this work if I downgrade to 2.07 from 3.05 to give you the results you're looking for?

Hmm, can you edit the .bat file and change "/EC" to "/ECB" and try again?

Yes.

Same problem.

Type flashit /? no /EC /ECB parameters.

Oh, they must have updated it. Then try /ECBP or /ECP

Please try with this file instead of the other bin.

The stupid error message isn't really helping :)

Cool, thanks for testing!

So, flashing the bios from 2.07 is no problem anyway, EC works as well now... and I think the ME will be possible as well... just makes the whole procedure of getting to a proper 3.05 a bit more complicated :D

EDIT: @PlaZing - you flashed with /ECP I assume?

Hello all :) I'm hoping somebody can help me out :)!

I have the Lenovo y510p with nvidia 755m sli.

What I am after is the advanced tab in the bios settings, all I really need is fan control, that is it.

I'm running 3.05 (74cn44ww)

I do not mind if I have to downgrade my bios version, just need this fan control!

Many thanks to anybody than can help!

Late,i do not download the test file.

But now i understand,in the Official BIOS,search "iflash_ec_img" ,from 02 00 70 02 ...cut 131072 bytes. It's EC file.

Use flashit xxx.bin /EC.

Now my EC version is 3.05.

So, what does this mean in normal people speak towards a 3.05 whitelist bios?

And, barring that is there a list of changes that 3.05 fixed that 2.07 doesnt have? IE: what do we lose by not being on 3.05?

I'll try to post the mod this week.

3.05 compared to v2.07 has quite some changes.

Most importantly they locked it down, so flashing anything from 3.05 is not easily possible.

Major BIOS changes include update ME firmware, new nvidia vbios, updated intel vbios, Win8.1 acpi entry and quite some "under the hood" fixes that most won't notice I guess.

I have a Lenovo Y510P with SLI and the bios version is 2.07.

Should I stay with this version?

Thank you so much svl7. If this solves my sleep issues, expect a few beers in CAD currency. I've lost a lot of hair and time dealing with this bs.

Lenovo released official 3.05 bios update for all Y410p/Y510p.

Maybe it will ease modding process and reverting afterwards.

Is v1.10 compatible with y510p with 755m or am I restricted to v2.04/7? If it is compatible can anyone get me a download link?

so any luck on getting menus unlocked for version 3.05?

also if you manage to fix this does it also unlock so MSI afterburner can adjust the fan speed or monitor fan speed to?

Has anyone tried reverting from modded BIOS to stock with official Lenovo bios update?

Was the revert fully successful - looks 100% like stock?

      Hello to all big format laptop users!
      I`ll try to make it as short as possible. I have the Alienware M18X R1 for about 7years, i think. It was a problematic machine all the time. But during warranty period local support fixed everything super fast and free of charge :). I even upgraded from gtx 580m sli to gtc 780m sli. And made primary hdd samsung evo ssd. Unlocked Bios. Power brick i changed 3 times by now. Battery once. And 6moths ago one of the long time ago installed 780m died ( started with artifacts on screen then refused to boot windows). Replaced that and was as happy as ever. The machine kept working stable and i pushed all i could get from it in reasonably modern titles. Even tried RDR2 on default settings, gave me 17fps :). Not sure if SLI is supported for that game. The point is it was running fine for last 6 months.
      What happened:  Gaming as usual, room temp 23C. After around 2hr suddenly black screen. The laptop switched off by itself.
      What i check: First checked power brick. Green light off. Unplug from wall and laptop. After plugging in wall green light back on. Connect laptop light off.
      Next: Tried take out battery, unplug. And hold the PWR button for 1 min. Try to start on battery - nothing. Plug in - green light off again.
      Later: after some googling found that need to try to remove video cards. Done that. OK Nice! Plug in power and it starts as nothing happened on the integrated intel video.
      Found out that i one of the video cards is plugged in that triggers the power brick to trip. (the original upgrade 780m from years ago). 
      Start with GPU: Insert the other one in its slot. Systems start. But immediately i notice there`s no video drivers. OK i think reinstalling and job done. Drivers reinstalled, asked for restart. After restart nothing. Still no driver.
      Windows device manager: This is bogging me. it shows that i have 670M instead of 780m. Windows gives Code 43 Error.
      BIOS: I go into bios just to find that that it has reverted back to A05 (hows that possible?). And its so limited that i cant even choose witch video card to use. But it detects nVidia GFX.
      How to get at least my single 780M to be working?! Update bios again to unlocked? Did this event fry Vbios on my other card maybe?
      System: m18x R1
      SLI gtx 780m
      Unlocked bios (before event)
      nvidia driver 443.x(or there about)
      Win: 7, 64bit

      Hello there!
      I am new on the forum. I'd need some help. I own a lenovo ideacentre t540-icb g, and i would need to unlock all the options in my bios, especially overclocking and thermal configuration. I tried with both amibcp and mmtool, but i didn't succeed (Error 18).
      I wonder if you could help me or give me some advice.
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi,
       
      I need help in fixing my Thinkpad.

      I just got a T440p yesterday. It was working perfectly until the following:

      I reinstalled Windows and then I installed Vantage.

      I installed all the latest drivers.
      I also choose to install the bios update. The bios update ran in Windows and it asked me to restart. After restarting, the screen was blank. I tried powering it off and on and I saw the Thinkpad logo but after that the screen was blank.

      I tried powering on and off again and there's no Thinkpad logo now and the screen is just blank with the green power on. No sound, no nothing.


      Here's what I tried:
      Pressing the power button 10 times and then holding it for 30 seconds. Unplugged and battery is detachted Detached the CMOS battery and the reattached it Removed the ram, harddisk and optical disk drive. Attached the battery and inserted the charger. I turned it on and there was a couple of beeps Tried pressing FN+R and created a bootable USB I'd like to ask: How do I fix this? What do I need to do?
      Can I reflash the bios in some other way? Do I need to buy a new motherboard? Will this solve the issue? It's my first thinkpad and I'm really excited but I was bummed out that this happened. Can you please help me?

      Thanks in advance!

      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?
