[REQUEST] ThinkPad X1 Carbon (20A7, GRETxxWW) Whitelist Removal

The MiniPro software the programmer shipped with didn't have a preset for the 6475, so I opted for the 6445, as it has the same instruction set, pin definitions, timings, etc. No matter what I do, I can't seem to get the setup to detect the chip - even if the laptop is plugged in (NOT turned on) or if the TL866CS is plugged into a powered USB port. I realize it would be best for me to desolder the chip and use it directly with the programmer, but that isn't an option yet. Is there anything I can do to try to make this setup work? I'm trying to obtain the dump BDMaster needs of the 64mbit IC itself and would need to ask for help from other people to desolder and such - I really don't want to have to rely on others for this.

Any information would be appreciated!

Hi my friend,
I got the TL866CS and wrote to many friends (CodeRush too) and to seller to ask infos about
this issue and I can say after many tests that It cannot read / write on Board Chips !
Only way is desoldering them and program externaly ! (is a powering issue as MoBo sucks current)
So before doing some mistakes ask Always for help or suggestions !

Thank you very much for the response. Do you know if any other programmers that would suffice without the need to desolder? I'm really afraid of [censored] something up and would much rather this method. I was looking at the CH341A as referenced here; would that work? THANK YOU!

Hi friend,
a ggod one I got too is this one :

Mcumall.com GQ-4X programmer I got some result modifying timing on sw, but only few times It woked !
It's expansive and cames from foreign !
So CH341A is the good solution to try another one !

I was able to get some replacement ICs, and with the appropriate adapter, I was able to get my TL866CS to read/write to the blank chips. It becomes obvious at this point that I'll need to desolder the existing chip, read it, and either write back to the same chip or a new one, then resolder to the board. What do you recommend for a good iron for such a small operation? Do you have any advice as to how to desolder without damaging the board itself, etc? What do you recommend for wick to clean the board, new solder? Any information would be helpful!

Hi friend,
I have got same tools as Kemod here :

1. Atten 8586 Solder Station (PID Controlled Solder Iron & Hot Air)
2. Multicore Ersin 0.46mm Leaded Solder Wire (Sn62/Pb36/Ag2)
3. MG Chemicals RA Type Rosin Flux (ROMI Class) in Bonkote SMD flux brush
4. Multicore Loctite 3.5mm and 0.8mm solder wick
5. Isopropyl Alcohol
6. Kimwipes Science lint free tissue
7. SMD antistatic tweezer, antistatic brush, LED third hand holder, etc.
8. Minipro TL866CS USB Universal EEPROM Programmer ~ I get it new @ USD 39 from some Chinese supplier.
9. SOIC/SOP 8 to DIP adapter.
10. True-USB PRO GQ-4X Willem Programmer Full Pack

Don't go over 250-280°C use a Thermal sensor on MoBo !
So what I can say further, follow tutorials I posted and all will go well !
Let me know
Regards

Hi guys, I have been watching this thread for a long time because I have the same laptop. This mobo has a m.2 slot for wwan card. According to one user, he tried on a ssd but the laptop doesn't detect the card. I wonder if it is blacklist or it is only for wwan. http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-Thi...-p/1490702. Do you have any idea?
