[Removed, 62etc1ww] Lenovo 3000 V100 Whitelist Removal
#1
Hi everyone,

i have a Lenovo 3000 V100 notebook which is currently equipped with an Intel 3945ABG miniPCI wireless card which i would like to exchange with an Intel 5100 card. Of course Lenovo won't let me because of that stupid whitelist crap Wink

Here's the link to the original BIOS Update CD (Ver. 1.11):
http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/...etc1ww.iso

And the release notes:
http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/...etc1ww.txt

The working 3945ABG card:
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_4227&SUBSYS_100118086&REV_02

Can anyone help me and remove the whitelist from that BIOS?
Thank you very much in advance!

Please provide a link to the BIOS download, you can find this on the manufacturers website.

Thanks.

Hi Camilo,

the only file available for download from the Lenovo website (and everywhere else on the www) is the 1.8mb ISO file linked in my post above.

I just tried extracting its contents using WinRAR and also tried to mount it using a virtual CD/DVD drive. Both ways I wasn't able to extract any files. Huh

Maybe you know how to get the BIOS image itself from the ISO file?

That's why i asked for the bios updater to download, i have no time to waste fighting with rare ISO images, my part of the work is mod the bios yours (requesters) is provide what we ask for Smile
It took me 30 seconds extract the bios, next time do better your part of the work Wink

I uploaded moded bios for you, locate it reading my signature, it has your name on it, follow the instructions you can read when launching the EXE you will download.

Hi Camilo,
that was pretty fast, thank you very much!

Unfortunately I am unable to flash the BIOS file because my notebook's battery died some time ago and causes the whole system to crash unexpectedly from time to time.
Since that's quite annoying (and not a good idea when flashing the BIOS) the notebook runs on AC power all the time.

However, the flash utility won't work because it complains about the battery being low or missing. Is there a command line switch or something to override this check?

Thanks again!

These are the command line options, i guess you will need to put the battery to flash the bios Sad

Hi there,

in the meantime I managed to flash the modified BIOS file, but it seems that the whitelist is still active.
When I plug in the 5100 miniPCI WLAN card the error message still appears (unauthorized network card etc.).

Do you see any chance of getting this thing to work at all?

Sure, will review the patch, don't worry.
Are you completely sure you successfully flashed the modded bios? Smile

I have reviwed the patch, and it seems correct, no mistakes by my side this time Smile

So... all points you were not able to correctly flash the modded bios.

Get a battery and download the new file that, as a special favour, i made putting the bios into the original ISO so you can burn in a CD-R/RW to auto flash your bios.
