Lenovo ThinkPad T440p / T440s/ T540 / E440 / E540 unlocked BIOS menu / wlan / wi-fi whitelist mod

Recommended Posts

In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo ThinkPad T440p / T440s / T540p / E440 / E540.

If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden additional menus and settings in bios setup menu, and sign unlocked bios with digital RSA signature (to avoid 5 beeps problem), then you can post your request in this thread.

Important!

For creating bios backup and to flash bios mod, you must use any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip!

 

Just dump your Bios using any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip, then post it in this thread or upload it to any fileserver and send me the link.

Hello Klem!

I recently acquired a Lenovo T440P, and would appreciate if you could help me get the WLAN whitelist removed, as well as the Advanced Menu unlocked.

I used a SPI programmer CH341A to dump my BIOS from W25Q32FV chip.

The dump i sent you via PM.

Thanks, and I appreciate any help!

Hi, Klem!

I used my ch341a_spi to dump my bios from my W25Q32.V chip in my T440p. I just sent you the BIOS dump via pm. Would you be able to modify it to get both the unlocked BIOS menu added and the WLAN whiteless removed?

Thank you!

Hi,

 

I have Lenovo T440P, It has been locked with Supervisor password on BIOS chip winbond 25Q32FVSIQ (1414). Is there a way to remove the password, so that i can enable Wireless LAN in BIOS setup.

 

Thanks,

Karthik sha

Hi!

No, unfortunately unlocked bios can't help you with Supervisor password.

Hi, I've got the SPI programmer and tried to dump the bios, but the clip was constantly 'sliding' off of the chip.. I'd assume there's enough space to get a grip without removing the whole base cover, but right now I am not sure if the issue is with my fatty fingers or do I really need to disassemble it to get the clear access to the mobo?

Hi!

Unfortunately, I can't remotely help you connect the SOIC8 clip to the BIOS chip. If you can't connect, and you see that something prevents you connect, you can try to disassemble the laptop.

Was rather thinking that someone who dumped it would chime in and tell whether they had to remove the bottom base or not :) Thanks, will tear it apart tonight and will get back to you when I have the dump. Thanks! 

 

OK I was able to dump the bios, send you a PM.

Hi guys & modder,

 

I am about to buy SPI programmer and test clip to flash my bios. I am doing this to enable my laptop to install egpu.

My lenovo t440p is the one with core i5-4200u.

 

Just checking if the thread is still active (if there is any reply after my post :p)

 

I'll attach the dump later.

 

Thanks!!

Hi!

Yes of course this thread is still active. When you create your dump, you can post it here with your request.

Hello, did anyone have any issues using flashrom via linux seems... ch341a_spi is supported https://www.flashrom.org/Supported_hardware#Supported_chipsets

 

Curious if all these cheap ch341 programmers are all the same, and behave the same for flashrom to pickup the usb device correctly.

 

I also found this debian based program https://github.com/setarcos/ch341prog - but if the more widely used flashrom works, may as well use that.

Hello Support,
 
I have a T440p Lenovo laptop, and forgotten the BIOS Super password, please can you advise if BIOS password can be removed?
 
What will be the procedure, will it require opening the laptop motherboard etc or just through software programming?
Can I do it myself if you provide steps and instructions?
How much will the service cost and how much time will it take to unlock the laptop?
 
Thanking in advance for your response.

No, I don't work with any passwords.

Hi, I'd like to upgrade my wifi card and access the hidden bios settings.

 

I have uploaded a bios dump here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kqkkap4vcptze6o/t440p.zip?dl=0

 

I've upgraded the CPU to a 4810MQ already and plan on installing OS X. Please advise if there are any other BIOS tweaks you would recommend.  Thank you so much for your help!

      Hi,
       
      So I've landed here to get some help with unlocking my old laptop. I must confess I've done few mods before, but it was on PCs, so was a piece of cake - adding Xeon to supported CPU models, or updating OROM to get a system boot from RAID SSDs. But now I'm trying do "the same" with laptop first time and this is a nightmare, mostly due to multiple BIOS vendors/methods, each of which requires own tools, some works with older revisions, some don't, some require 32-bits, some don't, and all YT examples being done using various configs = so in the end: a mayhem.
       
      My laptop config is:
      Lenovo B570e, i5-2520M, 10GB RAM
      BIOS: 44CN43WW (latest, unmodified), SMBIOS 2.6
      Phoenix/EFI SLIC Mod indicates it is an EFI/Insyde BIOS, but entering the BIOS I've got "Phoenix SecureCore Tiano" info
      WLAN: original damaged, a replacement (by chip) doesn't allow laptop to start - Error 104 Unsupported wireless network device...
       
      All I've found so far was:
      * Universal BIOS Backup Toolkit 2.0 - to make a BIOS dump file (succees)
      * UEFI Tool - to load dump file, search required module and extract it (success)
      * WinHex - to search an assembler code boundaries, and extract it (WinHex will not save edits = unregistered version), so semi-success
      * Hex Editor Neo - to disassembly code, and probably make changes (so far: in progress:))
       
      And I've stopped at searching the JZ/JNZ mnemonics, probably this is because I've got wrong code boundary (from WinHex), which gives improper disassembled program in preview pane. What I'm looking for is a loop, which I try to obey - regarding to some "popular" links describing this method (unfortunately I can't follow these instructions 1:1 as some programs don't work as supposed and crash - like WinHex, yup, some don't work at all and I need to use different tool).
      One more frustrating thing is I can't find proper tool for final stage - which is good (working) flasher. I can't remember how I've reflashed BIOS previously - must have been years ago - but now PhoenixUEFIWinFlash makes a BSOD (original, executable BIOS downloaded from Lenovo support website uses this program, which shows its GUI for a moment and makes BSOD), and "external", latest Phoenix UEFI WinFlash program doesn't want to work properly at setting up stage. Probably I will have to use phlash16 and FreeDOS, but will see at the end, when I have modded BIOS completed.
       
      Any suggestions (or even better - some ready, modded file), please ?
       
      Thanks in advance for any help, I appreciate any clue.

      Hello guys 
       
      I've got a pretty weird problem with my M18x R2. I already searched the web but couldn't find an answer. A few days ago I changed some settings in the bios, if I remember correctly DMVT Pre-Allocated.
      After saving this setting the notebook refuses to even POST. I get no beep errors or anything. If I press the power button the system turns on, the leds turn on and then the system shuts itself off. I already reset the cmos, the IME, tested different configurations and so on. If I remove all the memory sticks I actually get the memory error code. At this point I'm pretty sure that the bios got corrupted for some reason when saving these mentioned settings. Did anyone had a similar problem and got a solution for this? I repaired lot's of notebook but never had an error like this...
      The Bios installed is the a15 unlocked.

      Is it possible to unlock bios on that model? Please help me with it if somebody can.
