Recommended Posts

i'm really getting frustrated right now..

nvflash cannot reflash the vBIOS..

i already install the BIOS mod v 3.05

and still cannot reflash the vBIOS

i use the nvflash for DOS 5.163.0.1

and use the 9D3D.rom (from lenovo) or 750mOC.rom (from svl7)

with code (nvflash -r) or (nvflash -i1 -5 -6 -r- j "filename".rom)

the result is same

Solved the "BIOS version compare error" by backtracking the posts related to v3.05, and thanks to PlaZing's post at page 98 I found out what the problem was, I needed to turn on the Bios flash back option in BIOS itself...I think this information should go on first page along with the rest of instructions related to flashing. PlaZing's post was very informative and I thank him for that. Now back to flashing to v3.05_mod.

I have the same system as you, so did the BIOS flash work for you? I just got my 7260 today and want to flash my bios to get it to work.

Well I have been trying to flash my bios so that I can change my wireless card to 7260 + bluetooth but to no avail. I think my usb drive isnt done properly. I got the EC part to flash not the bios though. So I have posted atleast 5 posts to be able to see the links but nobody has approved them yet. I have school work to catch up on and I am starting to really regret buying this laptop. It has gotten quite buggy lately with the wireless and then it started throttling to where it was using 100 percent of the processor and causing it to get hot just as I started it up. I have no idea why it did that starting up. It also wouldnt start up at all, it just went to the lenovo screen and stayed there and then I shut it down and pushed the power button and it wouldnt even start up at all. I thought it was the HD but it is fine. So it is becoming more and more buggy. Getting tired of it!

Hello guys. Having a Lenovo Y510P and looking to upgrade my wireless card for better performance while reading this great mod I am stuck in the step of dragging and dropping the backup bios into the BiosFixer. I grab the file and try to drop but it does not give me the options or do it. Is the BiosFixer tool has to be in the same folder as the backup? How can I make this possible so I can continue the flashing of the modified BIOS? Any help highly appreciated.

Thanks Svl7 for the mod.

Thanks TechInferno for the amazing vast information regarding our BIOS modification.

Is it possible to use the mPCI / PCI (not sure what kind of slot it uses) slot from the wlan card, and possible implement eGPU?

I'd imagine that if you did that you could possibly use a desktop GPU, but I'm not the best when it comes to modifying a laptop's internal parts, so correct me if I'm wrong.

Ok I am a noob at this and I just cannot get this to work. I have tried for the last week researching and trying different ways to backup my bios. Nothing is working. The supplied tool isnt working, my wireless card now is spotty and I am out of warranty. I tried skipping the backup step but the bios backup is required. Can you take me step by step of everything I need to do to get my wireless card to work. I got the 7260 wireless card.

(1) - Create a backup of your own BIOS (now v3.05) by using this tool.

Extract the files and run the included .bat file from an admin command prompt.

You have to launch the CMD prompt via Run as administrator. Place the files to c:\ ... Once that you may need to navigate via dos your C drive. cd.. to exit folder and cd name to enter a folder. Once you have reached the folder of the file of the batch just type it and it will run. You will see when finish a .bin file created. Hope this helps

Sorry for my triple post... BUT I manage to complete everything but the laptop is not recognizing the USB so I cannot boot via USB. And Yes Boot from USB is enabled in the BIOS. Anyone can tell me why I cannot boot from the USB neither is recognized in the BIOS? do i need to put the BOOT mode in Legacy or leave it in UEFI?

Any help highly appreciated. I am very close to complete this..

Well I freaking did it! After reading all 147 pages I manage to find all the solutions to the issues I encounter. I have now my modified BIOS on my y510p laptop with the new 7260HMW wireless AC card flying like an eagle. Thanks for SVL7 for the work done onto this. I have send you a small donation to show gratitude and for you to get some beers on my behalf for your great work. Thanks again and Thanks Tech Inferno.

run backup.bat from Admin command prompt.

Thats the thing, when I run from admin the command prompt just flashes real quick and thats it. It does nothing else.

Any ideas?

Ok I had a noob attack again. I got it figured out, I came across this site http://www.thecosmosphere.com/how-to-remove-bios-wlan-whitelist-from-lenovo-y410py510p/

and got it fixed. I found this tool http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/9856-Universal-BIOS-Backup-Toolkit

which got my bios copied properly. Now I am about to downgrade to 2.07 and see how it goes.

Finally! It worked! I am totally ecstatic! Thank you to everyone especially svl7 for figuring this out for the community of Y510P purchasers. Lenovo is pretty rude for whitelisting our systems. Sorry for the multiple posts. I hope whoever else is looking for this mod that these posts will help.

Yes it worked perfectly after removing BIOS flashback restriction, and following the procedure on the1st page. I haven't had the time to dive into the unlocked BIOS and try to mess with voltage to lower the temperature, but the laptop is sunning well with the v3.05 mod.

Thank you SO MUCH for putting out this guide, as this guide was just amazing, and now my Y510p works like a charm!

If I could add one suggestion is that this was my first time doing this; I would like to see the steps more descriptive as to what you exactly have to do, since this procedure took me about a day to do because i have to figure out everything myself.

Other that, this guide saved my laptop for being a paper weight! Thanks so much! When I'm able, I'll buy you a beer! :P

      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!
