-Manufacturer: Lenovo (previously IBM)
- ThinkPad W520
- Part Number: 4270CT0
-Bios revision: 1.26 (8BET46WW)
-Bios Type: Phoenix EFI
-Bios Download Link: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/8buj06us.exe
-Current original card (like): PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8176&SUBSYS_819510EC&REV_01
-Card to be added (like): Atheros AR9382 (not arrived yet); Ericsson F3607gw/Sierra Wireless 8792 HSUPA

BIOS Backup from running install: http://www.sendspace.com/file/l70hro
RW-Everything ACPI Table dump: http://www.sendspace.com/file/x814x4

I tried using the Phoenix BIOS Mod Tool 1.90 and Endeer's PhoenixMod tool, but I don't get the BIOSCOD0*.rom files; just a lot of files with UUID.rom names.

Please remove the whitelist from my BIOS! I will be most grateful, as it will allow me WIFI access in MacOS X 10.7 Lion.

If you don't get a reply here... try over at:

LENOVO (IBM) Bioses, especially Thinkpad.

be sure to specify your looking mainly for whitelist removal... they specialize in another type of mod :P

Can they remove the lock they put on the w520 bios, so we cannot over clock or adjust the TDP for the CPU?
