Anyone updated to the latest 1.22 BIOS?

2011-10-19, 15:14 PM

I'm having issues with my x220 since I upgraded the bios from 1.20 to 1.21 and 1.22 dosen't help too much. 

 

My idle CPU temp is 55C and the fan nevers go under 3600 rmp... is that normal? 

 

where can I download the 1.20 bios to make a downgrade?

 

thanks

What are the fixes for 1.22? I've had no issues with 1.21 and I'm of the "If it ain't broke, dont fix it" crowd.

Did you try flashing it in Windows or with a bootable CD?
