X1 Yoga 1st Gen: No automatic BIOS update to 1.35



My X1 Yoga 1st Gen has BIOS version 1.33 (according to Lenovo Vantage). Lenovo Vantage, System Update or Automatic Driver Update on the Lenovo website don't find any new updates. However, I can see on the website that a version 1.35 is available and I could download it manually.


Why doesn't it get installed automatically? Is there a reason not to update to 1.35 at all?

Re: X1 Yoga 1st Gen: No automatic BIOS update to 1.35

X1 Yoga gen1' updates catalog for Lenovo SU or Vantage apps still includes previous BIOS entry (n1fuj26w) by unknown reason. That causes you aren't able to update the BIOS using those apps.

I'd recommend to perform the BIOS update manually, not from the update shells. For higher relliability you might even do that from external media with EFI Shell. Read the manual (readme file).
