Still, I don't get it where is this? Won't this function be in all Lenovos?

Unfortunately I can't do anything for lenovo 3000 y500. There has been no official BIOS update for this machine. And it's absolutely clear that lenovo isn't planning to release the BIOS update for such old notebook.

In case of Phoenix BIOS you can't flash the patch if you don't have the official BIOS from lenovo. I'm afraid you have to visit your local Authorized Service Provider.

This is just purely good, you're the king.

I have a question however - my YP560p has some other low level keys bound to tragic apps - OneKey Recover (OKR), OneKey Theater, Energy Management and the absolutely superbad SlideNav. Would those have to be BIOS remapped too or could they be controlled as a HID device (or is there ANY other way)?

 

Many thanks for an answer.

I think it's possible to remap these keys. Try software way first (Sharpkeys and other remapping utilities). If it doesn't help, then you have to modify either firmware or lenovo's software to intercept special key's pressing.

 

As for me I'll never do this mod because I think it's useless and not worth the time spent on it.

Middleton! I have a request for you!  I dont know if you remember me or not, but I "beta" tested some v/t bioses a long time ago for you... it worked awesome and still does!

my request is for information on how to either eliinate the wifi card whitelist in the BIOS or to add my cards ID to the list

I know there are several bios that are out to do this, but I am worried about losing the v/t if I flash a different bios than the one you sent me ages ago.

any help is greatly appreciated
