Lenovo S30 Unlock
I am seeking an unlocked bios for the purposes of overclocking and or IVY Bridge support on an early-ish model Lenovo S30 0569 the bios I would like to mod is version A0KT61A. I would be willing to make a Donation or reimbursement for either of those modifications. I have confirmed with a lenovo tech that the newer A1 bios will brick my MoBo due to other changes to the actual board that were made at the time of the switch over to the newer 430 series models and this seems proven by the last member on here who bricked his board attempting it. Let me know what you need that hasn't been supplied here

also I came across this in the whats new file for the a0kt61a bios and managed to get an old copy of a0kt50a if it helps, all versions after these are listed as "for undisclosed security fixes" so I wouldn't be opposed to going back to version 50 if it is that easy but i doubt it?

  - Upgraded some latest module code(NVRAM SMI module, ACPI module, TCG module)

  - Added BootScriptHide module to improve S3 Security.
  - Fixed S4 resume fail issue on some system configuration with 3*4TB HDDs.
  - Fixed problem that BIOS isn't locked after MFGDONE is set.

the roms I have are uefi straight from lenovo off the iso images I am not sure If the need to be extracted or something both Rom's are 8,192kb so I can't attach them?
Unless the base frequency and cpu voltage can be unlocked you guys can forget about this after loading in the older bios I was able to change the core ratio multiplier from 38 to 43 and and its now running 4300+mhz on all 4 cores. older version of the bios FTW
just as an update I unlocked the bios and while I gained the ability to force the ram into 1866mhz mode which worked well with my sticks the base clock was still unavailable. I can live with it only thing i could see doing in the future is upgrading it to ivy bridge and changing the built in fan tables that were hidden before the unlock. I would post the complete installation file (uses lenovo factory updater modified for new bios on a dos drive) but i dont have the allowed space for it.
