FN - CTRL swap on Lenovo Y550P keyboard [SOLVED]

2010-02-24, 13:28 PM

I managed to make CTRL-FN patch for Lenovo Y550 BIOS (see here http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-and-U-series-Laptops/FN-CTRL-swap-on-Lenovo-Y550-keyboard-SOLVED/td-p/184220).

 

Now I've made the CTRL-FN BIOS patch for Y550P model.

Download and flash modified BIOS to swap FN and CTRL keys.

For anyone concerned about this fix,  I just tried it and it worked perfectly.  I've followed a few other threads and middleton has fixed this issue on several different lenovo models.  From what I can tell, he knows what he is doing.  The whole fix took me less than two minutes to apply.

Lenovo,  you should be paying this guy.  Give him a check make the patches official!!

Well, flashing the BIOS is a f***ing terrifying process, but this BIOS patch works exactly as advertised on my y550p. Thanks a ton!
