Re: FN - CTRL swap on ThinkPad T400 / T500 keyboard [SOLVED]

Try the following BIOS: 3.09-1.05. It has a smaller version number in BOTH "Embedded Controller version" and "BIOS version".

By the way, middleton. How did you hack this BIOS? What tools did you use, etc?

I think the official Lenovo forum is not the place where I can teach you how to hack their BIOSes :smileyhappy:.

Awesomeness!  My pinkie is already 5% more happy! 

 

I would've never updated my BIOS at all without this, too. :P  If ain't broken... except Fn-Ctrl *was* broken, but Lenovo would not fix it.  So Lenovo, now that your lame excuse has been proven a lie, how about you do right and release an official fix, instead of burying your head in the sand and covering your back?  If you're so close from perfection, why not go for it?

 

Thanks many!

Seconded... But well I don't really care anymore. The inofficial patch is okay, too. But I believe many people are afraid to use a "hacked" BIOS, because they're afraid it could brick their notebook... So give those guys the chance to swap their keys, too. Would only be fair for those guys.
