Re: Lenovo Ideapad S10-2 BIOS Whitelist WWAN hack

How abt the bios for the S10-st? I downloaded the latest s10-3t bios, but it seems that its decompressed files are different from the s10-2.

Re: Lenovo Ideapad S10-2 BIOS Whitelist WWAN hack

Tested with Wifi card. It works.

 

I did not have any WWAN card, thus, no test with WWAN card.

    * platform.ini

5. 5. Download the editor BIOS Insyde (google to help) - EZH2O (I used EZH20 2.1.0.4 for SW8/TW8)

1. 1. on a clean USB Flash Drive is formatted FAT16 or FAT32 file record KIUN0113.ROM, renaming it KIUN0.BIN

6. 6. recovery process will begin to load the BIOS image in memory

8. 8. computer shuts down automatically
9. 9. you have been saved Smiley Happy

Thanks a lot! I was searching a way to eliminate the WLAN whitelist checking of my S10-2 but didn't find anything except your post. So I tried to flash it into my S10-2 and it worked like a charm! Now I can swap my Intel Pro Wireless 3945abg to my S10-2! Thanks again!

Re: S10-2: How to avoid "Unauthorized Wireless card" message? I need to replace WiFi card

Hey S10-2 folks,

 

I just tried the method suggested by this nice gentleman in his post there:

 

http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-S-series-Netbooks/Lenovo-Ideapad-S10-2-BIOS-Whitelist-WWAN-hack/...

 

It doesn't only remove the WWAN (3G data card) checking but also WLAN (unauthorized wireless card) **bleep**! If you are not sure how to do that I'm attaching the mod ROM for your reference. You just need to extract the archive to any folder on your hard drive and execute the "InsydeFlash.exe". That's it. Enjoy!

Re: Lenovo Ideapad S10-2 BIOS Whitelist WWAN hack

I've done it and everything works ok, it removes the 3G/WWAN & Wireless card check.

Re: Lenovo Ideapad S10-2 BIOS Whitelist WWAN hack

I replaced the Wireless Card with the Intel 5100 wiFi at first which was from a TOSHIBA and didn't work before the Whitelist patch and then I replaced it with the Broadcom BCM94321MC a/b/g/n due to MacOSX compatibily. Everything works fine and better reception.

Re: S10-2: How to avoid "Unauthorized Wireless card" message? I need to replace WiFi card

I hate to bump such an old post, but I'm going to, because I am so frustrated with Lenovo I simply don't care. Here we are in 2013 and I'm on a Lenovo E430 and still running into this nonsense. How on earth is this deemed okay? How is it Lenovo can get away with locking down what wifi cards can go into a unit? It's a removable slot, yet I MUST use your signed cards you deem acceptable? I currently have an E430. It's a great unit. It has a lot of power, and a lot of potential. There's one problem with it, as it has a trash Broadcom wireless card in it. Of course, I'm having issues with it, so naturally my instinct is to put in an Intel or Atheros wireless card... that is, until I boot it up and it yells that I am breaking some sort of nonsense pre-defined rule as per Lenovo.

 

I cannot put into words how agitated I am by this. I was such a strong supporter of Lenovo for so long, but actions like this have written them off indefinitely. I will do whatever I can in my power to ensure that no friend or family member gets stuck with this nonsense. It's really a shame, because with working at a large enterprise environment, Lenovo would be a natural choice for hardware. 

 

Wake up, Lenovo. Stop pissing off your customers with ridiculous actions like this. It's just a wireless card, but locking us into one specific chip is as ridiculous as it is confusing.
