FS: HD SSD M.2 512GB Samsung PM981 NVMe, PCIe Typ 2280 (T480)

I'm selling a almost new M.2 512GB Samsung PM981 MZVLB512HAJQ-000L7 NVMe PCIe, taken out from a new Thinkpad T480 to replace it with a classic SATA drive, because this NVME drive does not work very well with the operating system I use (FreeBSD). The drive is almost new, has been used for few hours o...

Re: X220/X230 to flash or not to flash coreboot after FHD mod

I tried the coreboot image for x230 from this link, and it works fine. I have a lot of ACPI errors on FreeBSD, but apparently everything seems to be working fine.

Re: X220/X230 to flash or not to flash coreboot after FHD mod

I was thinking about installing coreboot too. My FHD install is still in progress, i'm waiting for LCD-panel to arrive. Not sure, but I suspect that only thing you need to change in coreboot is value of https://github.com/coreboot/coreboot/blob/master/src/mainboard/lenovo/x230/devicetree.cb#L10 to ...

Re: X220/X230 to flash or not to flash coreboot after FHD mod

Anybody had success on using coreboot with FHD mod on x220/x230. I just tried myself, screen backlight lights up, but nothing is displayed. I had to re-flash the original bios for the moment.

Wireless cards for X220/x230 with HOSTAP support

Hello,

I'm trying to get a list of all wireless cards that can be used with x220/x230 with HOSTAP support, preferably compatible with FreeBSD 11.x.

So far, I found that the Atheros AR5BXB112 AR9380 should work, but If you have good experience/suggestion for other cards, please share here!

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Maybe the naming was confusing you. You can refer to the ports as Laptop DP, Dock DP-1 and Dock-DP2 (as I've been doing), or DP-1, DP-2, DP-3, as you've been doing. The end result is the same. :) Yep, there were some messages saying that DVI will work, which what confused me. Anyway I'm happy to be...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

On the Mini-Dock (non-Plus), the DP and DVI ports are on different channels, since they both work simultaneously. Otherwise it would mean there is an MST hub inside, which I don't think there is. Yes you are right, I've tried my non modded x220, the DP and DVI ports work simultaneously. The DVI por...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

If I understood correctly, with the FHD mod and Mini Dock Series 3, the DP and the DVI on the dock will be both non functional, right?

It is easy to detach the screen fro the silicone glue under it, I've done it once already to remove s...

Also I did the adaptive brightness test, the screen is not affected by dynamic contrast.
