[REQUEST] Lenovo ThinkPad E485 (R0UET66W [1.46]) BIOS Mod
#1
Hello Everyone!

Looking to unlock/mod the BIOS of the new ThinkPad E485 (AMD Ryzen + Vega).
I have reasons to believe that Lenovo locked the CPU/GPU package at 12W, seriously gimping its performance. 

Willing to donate $$$ as well as spend time retrieving the BIOS, tweaking & testing. 

Thanks!

Hi
Your bios is rewrite protected...you need SPI-programmer+SOIC8 clip
but this is not the main problem...most likely, your bios has a digital signature...ie locked for modification

How can we verify if there's a digital signature lock? Should I get an SPI-programmer+SOIC8 and follow the guide to read the bios first?
