X230t keyboard swap with X220t Possible?!?

Hello all thinkpaders!

 I'm thinking of purchasing a X230 tablet but the only thing that's stopping me is that I'm not sure if one can swap the keyboard of it with the one from its older brother the X220 tablet.

Thank you all in advance.

Hi @Ogog10002

 

There is an unofficial EC firmware mod that will allow you to do that, it will require some Linux commands and several physical modifications to your keyboard. You can follow the links below for more info:

It also needs a little work with a razor knife or a file.  There is a notch in the x230 keyboard bezel to leave a little more room for the different power switch.
