[REQUEST] Lenovo Thinkpad X230 Tablet (GCETxxWW) Whitelist Removal
As an owner of an X230 and eager to use a better wifi card, I have a few questions:

How do you flash the firmware mod? Does it require a hardware modification?
Where can I find a manual flashing it?
There are too many posts and I can't find any with the full instructions.

Thanks!

https://github.com/n4ru/1vyrain/

The process is well-documented and very simple - no external programmer necessary.

Just did this on my X230 and didn't experience any trouble at all.

Hello,
I have made 2 similar projects:

https://github.com/dpolitis/auto-1vyprep/
Downgrades bios version for all xx30 to a version that is vulnerable to 1vyrain

https://github.com/dpolitis/auto-1vyrain/
Software flashes all xx30 (T430 only with winbond chip) the latest bios patched image (also eliminates 5 beeps bug, with TPM enabled), patches are visible in text.

Patches include: Whitelist, Advanced menu, Disable LVDS (only for x230 FHD mod by nitrocaster), Unlock MSR for overclocking and hackintosh support. Other patches are not applicable (at least on X230 and as far as I know - Thanks dudu2002).

The 2 projects build for you automatically the iso files to boot from a usb and perform flashing of a patched image WITHOUT a hardware programmer.

The bios files are downloaded from Lenovo and prepatched for you, during the build and you get no binary blobs. You can see the iso file build from the ground-up and you know what is included.

Many thanks to n4ru (https://1vyra.in/) for the original idea and his tutorials:

Huge thanks go out to gch1p (https://github.com/gch1p/thinkpad-bios-s...hing-guide) for publishing the method used and pgera (https://github.com/hamishcoleman/thinkpa...-417903315) for the working commands, without them this would have not been possible.

Read README file carefully.

I hope I helped a lot of people.

Of course USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!! I will not be held responsible for anything that may happen to you or your hardware. You have been noted. If you do not understand what these projects do, please do not use it.
