[Solved] X220 v1.42 Modified BIOS
#31
Question 
@ValdikSS Thank you! I flashed the bios and all is good. Will I have any issues if I want to reflash the original bios?
I bought my x220 off ebay and it has some issues so I might have to return it back to seller.

HI

In the text file that comes with this firmware it reads:

First flash the original v1.43 bios (8duj28us), reboot and run flash.bat as an administrator.

My x220 runs the  8DET73WW (1.43 ) bios wich is likely the gmerman version? Can i still flash directly with the version you supplied?

Do i really just need to run the .bat file as an admin?

All the best

Yes, you can't revert it back right away, stock flasher has a check if you're trying to install the same firmware. You need to copy FL1 file from the original BIOS folder to modified BIOS folder, rewriting existing file.

Most probably. It should work fine.

Hi,

sorry if this has been brought up, but I couldn't find a definitive answer. I'm currently running a modified 1.40 BIOS with 16GB memory. Should my upgrade path be 1.40(modded) -> 1.43 (official) -> 1.43 (modded). If I go from 1.40 modded bios to 1.43 will my laptop boot.

I would primarily like to upgrade because of the TPM device as I have some issues with it in Linux and I would actually like to use it.

Thanks. Great work on the modded BIOSes.

Most probably it would work, but I'd recommend you to flash original BIOS first.

Hey man, thanks for the mod, I can't get it to work on my PC though. From windows 10 x64 I tried running the v1.43 version on my x220 and after I installed the original 1.43 bios and when I go to click on the flash.bat file and run as admin I can see a cmd window flash on my screen for a split second and then nothing happens. The cmd window flashes too quickly for me to read anything in it. Any ideas on how I can get it to work?

I realize this reply is pretty late, but here's what you need to do:

1. Open a command prompt (cmd.exe) as administrator
2. Navigate to the Modified bios folder using the command prompt
3. Type Flash.bat

Hello Sirs,
First of all, thanks for the mod, it worked for me, in a way, however, I may need some assistance: I have an X220 with hungarian keyboard layout. I did everything as was described here: http://x220.mcdonnelltech.com/resources/
Exactly:
- tried to install "original" BIOS: the installer said I already have the latest one, so I went to step2:
- installed the modified one: the process completed perfectly
- entered BIOS setup: found the "Advanced" menu, hooray, it worked
Now I have two problems:
1. The keyboard layout seems to have gone crazy: for "klm" keys the notebook types "123" and so on. I have Win10 installed, and have an USB keyboard connected (that's what I'm typing from now") However it's still irritating that the "normal" notebook keyboard layout changed. Is there an easy fix to that? I have tried "Advanced" menu from BIOS where I have two options: "US", and "CUSTOMER". The default was US, I changed it to "CUSTOMER" but it does not solve anything.
2. I have installed an AzureWave Broadcom BCM94352HMB AW-CE123H module in place of the original WiFi card. The WiFi works like a charm, my download and upload speeds are racing. However, it should also have Bluetooth 4.0 on this card, which I can't get to work with any drivers. My device manager sais "This device cannot start. (Code 10)". Is there a way to make it work? Strangely, I can connect my phone to the notebook with bluetooth, but the first entry in my device manager under "Bluetooth" that sais "Bluetooth Module" has an exclamation mark under it, and the properties say:
Device type: Bluetooth,
Manufacturer: Broadcom
Location: Port_#0003.Hub_#0005
Device status:
"This device cannot start. (Code 10)

{Operation Failed}
The requested operation was unsuccessful"
Any help is deeply appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

You have numlock enabled. Disable it by pressing fn+ScrLk (to the right from Print Screen).

You probably need to tape pin 51 on it.
