[GUIDE] Removing Wi-Fi/WWAN whitelist on Lenovo (Insyde) BIOS
#1
Photo 
Hello,
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:
https://medium.com/@p0358/removing-wlan-...033a5a5e5a

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.
