Now there are at least two reports on faulty BIOS mod.

Hi,

Both v1.46 patches failed on my hardware!


Solution:
1) install v1.45 official Bios (https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/8duj30us.iso)
2) install v1.45 mod Bios (https://files.catbox.moe/qdj4n0.7z)



Without installing Windows:

1) Create USB-stick
* geteltorito -o 8duj30us.img 8duj30us.iso
* dd if=8duj30us.img of=/dev/sdX

2) Create USB-stick: Windows 7 Trial installer (no key required)
* i used: 7600.16385.090713-1255_x86fre_enterprise_en-us_EVAL_Eval_Enterprise-GRMCENEVAL_EN_DVD.iso

3) Create a small Fat32 or NTFS partition
* extract the mod Bios to that partition

4) Now boot Win7
* abort the installation immediately
* click: Repair->Command-Prompt
* change dir: C:/mod
* run: flash.bat

I want to remove whitelist protections on a X220 to I can use a new ax210 card in it. I am by nature very cautious however, and wanted to look at what changed in the "no whitelist only" image.

I was expecting to see only a few address changed, to bypass the whitelist logic, as is described in this medium post.

However, when I compare the images I see that 1 out of 8 MB are changed:

Code:
johnf@johnf-nuc:~/tmp/x220-bios$ cmp -l '8duj31us/8DET76WW/$01CB000.FL1' 'modded/8DET76WW/$01CB000.FL1' | wc -l
1043216


This can of course be quite inaccurate, as a small change that moves some code will report everything as changed, but I'm still wondering why there is such a large change in the binary blob.

Thanks very much for your work on this BIOS ValdikSS . I'm sorry to trouble you with this question and appreciate any guidance you can offer me.

I've looked at another modded firmware image for version 1.40 posted by another user earlier in this thread.

I see a much more modest 9813 bytes of change between the two images; about 2000 characters of code have also been removed from the image:

Code:
johnf@johnf-nuc:~/tmp/x220-bios/140$ ls -l "8duj31us/206A7.PAT" "Lenovo ThinkPad x220_1.40-(8DET70WW)-8duj26us_NWL_ADV_AES_PM_Speedo/Modified/206A7.PAT"

ValdikSS replied by email and said that it was necessary to extract the firmware using uefiextract in order to properly compare the changes. Doing so, I've found the changes are much smaller than I had documented above and inline with my expectations for this type of modification. We can see 23 bytes of change in something named LenovoWmaPolicyDxe.efi and some minor changes in volume free space and padding.

You can see the analysis here below.

I now feel comfortable installing the modified firmware. Thanks very much for your work on this firmware update and for taking the time to reply ValdikSS.
