I have a T480 at BIOS 1.31 & ECP 1.19 both need update is there a preferred order?

2020-07-20, 22:48 PM

I have a T480 at BIOS 1.31  &  ECP 1.19 

Current levels are BIOS 1.34 and ECP 1.20 

 

So both need update is there a preferred order?

BIOS first or ECP first?

 

Or is the ECP update embedded inside the BIOS update?

I can't find a download for ECP 1.20  :-(

 

Thanks!

Jim

ECP update is included in the BIOS file.

Thank you ... 

 

I got confused as the Lenovo ReadMe file listed ECP V1.20 as having been released at the same time as BIOS V1.30

 

I appreciate your help!

By coincidence I found this warning on the Lenovo site: 

"CAUTION : If BIOS ECP version is 1.09, update ECP to 1.12 (n2iuj11w) or higher version prior to update UEFI BIOS. Otherwise, system may hang in UEFI BIOS updating process."

 

Is there a way to update the ECP separate from the BIOS upgrade ?

You seem to be asking about T490 in a thread that is about T480.

 

You can update to T490 ECP 1.12 using this tool:  https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/n2iuj11w.exe

 

Then you can use this tool to update to latest T490 BIOS/ECP together:  https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/n2iuj24w.exe
