This package updates the basic input/output system (BIOS) on IdeaPad Y410P/Y510P

BIOS, abbreviation of Basic Input/Output System, is integrated in ROM chip on main board, which contains the basic input/output program, system configuration information, system startup self-check and pre-setup programs. BIOS provides most basic low-level hardware operations; it is the connection between software and hardware, and interfacing window of hardware and operating system.

Note: Make note of any settings you have changed in the BIOS Configuration Utility. These settings may have to be re-entered after updating the BIOS.

Attention: Do not power off or restart your computer during the BIOS flashing process, which will cause serious damage and improper functioning of your computer.

I assume this is a locked version of the BIOS, right? So, we would either need slv7 (or someone else) to work on a fix or live with a locked BIOS if we choose to update...

Seems that it only fixed uefi bios security issue, where this new virus could write a program into uefi and control the computer. Any other news?

Is there any other changes about fan speeds etc with this version? Do i need to upgrade from 3.05?

Seems the same here too. Except now I cannot unlock my BIOS.. :ah:

EDIT: Actually. If the BIOS is basically the same, would I be able to trick slv7's biosfixer tool into modifying my 3.08 into a 3.05 file? Or is this a quick way to brick my laptop?

I recently downloaded the v3.08 BIOS from the lenovo site and it gave me an error at installation. Tried multiple times and reboots. I gave up on it and then glad it actually never installed because apparently doing the modded bios is the better way to go

Mine installed fine. It seems to have improved battery life also ever so slightly. I still might want to try the modded bios though.
