[REQUEST] Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 Whitelist removal
#1
I bought a new WLAN card for my laptop only to find out there is a whitelist..
New WiFi card: Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230

I know there are older BIOS versions with the whitelist removed, but I would like to be up-to-date.

Model: Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520
BIOS Version: 1.26
Download link: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/...uj17us.exe

Thanks! Smile

Hello,

I'd also like to get the modded 1.26 bios, but the link ends up saying "The user hosting this content is out of bandwidth." :/

Is there some way you could re-upload it somewhere else?

Best regards,
Chris

Sovem,
Trying to load this modded bios after loading original. When I run Flash as administrator is file to select FvRecovery.fd? Want to make sure so I don't brick my machine.

I believe you're supposed to run WINUPTP.exe, not the winflash.exe that's in the bios folders Smile I'm running this modded 1.26 bios with a Dell Wireless 1510 card ('cause Intel ones seem to cause huge DPC latencies and issues >_< )

KhronX, Thanks for the info...
I started Flash not WinUPTP as administrator and the window that comes up allows me to search for files but only one that shows is the *.fd When you ran WinUPTP did you pass it any options? Also did you run it as administrator?
