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?

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?

      Hey allI, I need help  with modding my BIOS. I was wondering if anyone could help me mod my BIOS to unlock the 'Advanced' tab which I don't have on my InsydeH20 F.52 Rev 5.0 Bios? Thanks so much and I look forward to your response! Laptop: HP Pavilion x360  ba109tx

      Hi guys, I am the proud owner of a Clevo p775dm3-g notebook purchased from azom.systems (authorized Clevo reseller in India, Model rebranded as Azom Legion-17.3 inches). Here are my specs:

      Core i7 7700 (non-K version): undervolted by 110 mv and turbo boost disabled in BIOS- machine uses prema mod BIOS.
      GTX 1080: undervolted by 100 mv on all frequency steps using MSI afterburner voltage/frequency curve editor. clocks are untouched.
      16 GB DDR4: Cant remember clocks.
      1440p 120 Hz screen: No tinkering done to refresh rate.

      CPU has been delidded and repaste has been done on both CPU/GPU dies with gallium based TIM-Coolaboratory liquid ultra if I recall correctly.

      My issue is GPU hitting max temp limit of 90 degrees while playing DOOM and framerate drops from 110 avg to mid 60s-70s with horrible stuttering- this is thermal throttling for sure.

      System was running beautifully after repaste at 86 degrees max/ 77 degrees average at 100 percent fan speed. A month later I decided to see how much further I could push the system and ended up undervolting the CPU/GPU and RAM even further. The RAM undervolting part didnt work as well as I'd hoped, and I ended up resetting the BIOS to undo everything and reapply the previous setting (-110 for CPU with turbo boost disabled.) 

      I noticed that immediately after BIOS reset, both my CPU and GPU temps were 5-10 degrees higher even with the undervolt/underclock applied. Also, I think the fans were a bit louder before I reset the BIOS which leads me to believe that for some reason the fans are now capped at 80% max fan speed. There doesnt seem to be a fan speed selector in the BIOS or anywhere else so I cant say for sure whether this is a fan related issue or something else.Before the reset I could override the BIOS setting and set the fans to 100% by pressing fn+1, could I have done something to that setting after resetting the BIOS ? I dont think I have damaged the CPU or GPU as temps are holding fairly steady at 90-91 degrees and laptop doesn't shut down while gaming.

      If I have overlooked something or if anyone reading this has any solution help would be greatly appreciated.
      All settings/drivers/windows version/app version are exactly the same before and after BIOS reset.

      Hey guys, I have an Alienware m14x R2, and I have been trying to get access to the BIOS so that I can change the boot options (Everything is locked, I am unsure if someone set a password of if these are locked by default).I've tried updating the BIOS, and resetting the CMOS and nothing has changed this. Would anyone know if there are other options I can explore? Thank you.
