[GUIDE] Removing Wi-Fi/WWAN whitelist on Lenovo (Insyde) BIOS
As I haven't personally found any good or recent guide on this, I decided to give it a go and write my own.

Here's a link to the article:

It is based on Lenovo G510 (where all mods are personal), and involves using SPI programmer + SOIC8 clip, since BIOS on this model is write-protected, so it is the only way to modify it.
Hope it's useful.
I've read you just need to remove the module with GUID starting with 11D378C2 and you're good to go. No need for digging deeper into it. Not sure if it works on this model though...
This could work tbh, since the whole module is dedicated to whitelist, haven't thought of it, that's pretty nice idea to speed things up. (that is unless something else checks for its presence)
I've read reports about this working that way. I can confirm it on a Yoga 2 13 20344. I just removed the whole module and new WiFi card was accepted. Didn't see any negative side effects so far.
Thank you for this guide.

I have followed it up to the point where you begin using IDA pro, a software I don't have. I have opened the extracted body (I'll attach it to this post) in Ghidra, and found out that the "Unauthorized ..." string is part of a function that I'll post below, but now I have no real clue on how to proceed. I don't know what that function does and where I should best change it without messing up the whole thing and being unable to boot.

Another thing: What you write is completely understandable up to the point where you mention that "you should be able to do this in a hex editor" - which I certainly don't. I'm sorry to bother you with it, but yours seems to be the only guide that can be found on google, so I imagine other people have similar problems trying to follow it.

Anyway, here is the function I mentioned:

void FUN_00010ec4(undefined8 param_1,undefined *param_2,undefined8 param_3,undefined8 param_4)

if (param_2 == (undefined *)0x0) {
param_2 = &DAT_00010ec0;
(**(code **)(DAT_00011040 + 0x170))(0x200,param_1,param_2,param_3,&DAT_000104d0,param_4);

And this is the entry point from which the above function is called:

longlong entry(undefined8 param_1,longlong param_2)

longlong lVar1;
undefined8 local_res18;
undefined8 *local_res20;
undefined local_18 [24];

lVar1 = (**(code **)(DAT_00011040 + 0x140))(&LAB_00010480,0,&DAT_00011058);
if (-1 < lVar1) {
lVar1 = (**(code **)(DAT_00011040 + 0x140))(&LAB_00010410,0,&DAT_00011070);
if (-1 < lVar1) {
lVar1 = (**(code **)(DAT_00011040 + 0x140))(&DAT_000103f0,0,&DAT_00011078);
if (-1 < lVar1) {
lVar1 = (**(code **)(DAT_00011040 + 0x140))(&LAB_00010460,0);
if (-1 < lVar1) {
DAT_00011060 = *local_res20;
local_res18 = 0;
_DAT_00011068 = &LAB_00010b54;
(**(code **)(DAT_00011040 + 0x80))(&local_res18,&DAT_000103d0,0,&DAT_00011068);
DAT_00011028 = local_res18;
lVar1 = 0;
return lVar1;

This means that you preferably need to change once found in the decompiler opcode with hex editor instead of collecting all the subroutines back.
Thanks for the clarification.

Just an update on my progress: I tried using a hex editor to change the values corresponding with the line (seeabove code) "FUN_00010ec4(0x10,FUN_00010cf8,0,local_18);" all to 90. That turned out not to boot. It gave me three beeps, another time three beeps, a longer pause, then the same again until I had to to a hard reset.

I then tried using UEFITool to just delete the whole module. That kind of worked, as in the device booted and the wifi worked in Win10 and Linux Mint. Sadly, Bluetooth seems to be connected to this module too, and refused to work even with the old whitelisted card. Another downside: Booting into hackintosh did not workl. It booted up until it had the verbose part done and then got stuck on an apple logo with an empty progress bar.

Now I'm back to my backupped bios. Any ideas what I should try next?
Hello, I have the g500s version - do those models also have write - protected bios or I can use software for flasing my bios after modification?
Hello p0358,

Thanks for this guide! I am currently learning how to perform various types of UEFI mods and this was very well written and informative!

About the Flashing the Bios Mod then we can say that there are others ways to do that, like using the S3 Vulnerability aka Sleep Mode or unlocking
some variables into NVRAM to reflash the bios (last is the ME disable) ...

[size=undefined]Your Brain [/size]. . . . It's the best tool U can use ! Wink
[size=undefined]Don't FLASH the Bios Mod if You get a Size Alert, You risk a Brick !!! [/size]
