Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Make the changelog change manually and delete that section from the patch file. Then apply the patch with -p1 from the base folder of your kernel source. Edit: I'm dumb. You can't patch a tar'd kernel source. I'm building a successfully patched kernel source now :oops: Awesome, that's great! Yeah, ...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Probably the patch has to be fixed for compatibility with new Ubuntu LTS (or with the kernel itself). Indeed, you can't just apply the patch from an older kernel. One of the lines is different. Just edit the files manually and you'll see what to do. I'm running the new LTS with the new kernel and i...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Morning all. Yesterday I installed a new version of Ubuntu LTS on my modded X230. I ran into one small issue: when you boot the live usb stick to install you can not see the pop-up window because it's on the LVDS screen, which isn't there anymore. There is a shortcut to move it to the new panel: Sup...

Hi all guys, Lot of time passed here since I had my x230 equipped with Nitro's mod, and still working amazingly even resisted a couple of falls ;-) and I am going for another one, I bought a X230 - i7, and this time I am going to try to have a sense wire soldered :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: looki...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Interesting, mine is not doing this, neither with, nor without docking station. Maybe it depends on the Linux distribution and those scripts installed. Seems to be those ACPI scripts inside '/etc/acpi' which handle this stuff. Ubuntu 17.04. Kernel source from Ubuntu's github: https://github.com/Can...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

As to lid events and automatic deactivation of the panel: it is not working out of the box with a patched Linux kernel. Instead, if you close the lid, the fhd panel will go full brightness. It is necessary to write a udev script to have this working. For me, with a patched kernel, when I close the ...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

I suppose the only thing you can do is check that it's soldered to the correct places and the joints are okay. Out with the magnifying glass!

I can see mine. I have an SPB3. IIRC there was a post earlier mentioning this. Perhaps the sense wire?

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

If you have to recompile, why bother to put in all that non-Lenovo stuff? And the very last line looks like it has an X230 MTM 2325P23 in it, shouldn't that be modified for every laptop? He's removing all the others, not adding them. I'm not sure exactly what that code snippet is doing, but I guess...

Hey guys, I have a small issue. Q: Does this mod affect left-side DisplayPort connector? A: No. The adapter board connects to Dock DisplayPort #2. I'm running Xubuntu on my X230 with Nitro's FHD mod. I just tried to plug my laptop into our boardroom projector via VGA and I am able to detect the pro...

Good morning enthusiasts. I can announce great success! <I don't know how to post an image... there should be a pic here of my now-uber-awesome X230 here> The difference from the TN 720p panel to this is just astonishing. This is the LP125WF2-SPB3 from win0win, btw. Some installation notes for those...

So, here are some news. Since I'm experiencing severe issues with getting payments for 2nd batch pre-orders, I'm going to tweak pre-order procedure a little bit. Pre-order confirmation will now require making a deposit of $10 which would help me cover material costs, and which is some guarantee tha...
