Re: X210s

Some news from Jacky: The 2560x1700 screen modification (discussed on irc) is not possible for the x210, because 1:X210 motherboard cannot support this voltage. 2: The size of the need to cut off too many circuits and indicators, we can not fully modified him. And they are making a second batch of x...

Thanks!

Turns out I'm an idiot and there is the -compress none option in imagemagick, I simply didn't know about it..

So linux users:

Code: Select all

convert orig_img -colors 8 -compress none logo.bmp
should work

Re: X210s

It works! Thank you very much RushNY

Note, if somebody on linux has any idea how to convert images properly? So far, using imagemagick, I tried

Code: Select all

convert orig.png -colors 8 -depth 8 -type palette bmp3:target.bmp
and variants but I can't get the "proper" file size.

Re: X210s

RushNY: could you upload your BMP file for the splashscreen? I tried with yours (from the imgur gallery you made) as well as https://tyruiop.org/~tyruiop/moebius_8.bmp to no avail, the bios simply doesn't display the images.. any idea why? Edit: on a more positive note, it seems that the SATA hot sw...

Re: X210s

Had success changing the BIOS splash image after seeing this thread: https://forum.51nb.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=1820225 https://imgur.com/HLQ4KMT I noticed the BIOS used on the T70 was the same type so I went for it and all steps were the same. Original splash image is 800x600 8-bit 256 co...

Re: X210s

Trying to find someone that will post or make me an account at 51NB so I can request a fix or updated bios splash screen, the current one is really annoying. I believe our bios is Aptio V and there is an editor out there but I'd rather not risk bricking. The X62 splash is so much better looking: ht...

Re: X210s

I don't have the new BIOS but with nvme and a 960 EVO. It works well, even the sleeping, just every other time.

Hopefully, I will be able to flash the new bios soon.

Re: X210s

Ok thanks, what about the screen's backlight, can you adjust it?

Nevermind, acpi_backlight=video in the kernel commands fixed that

Re: X210s

I am going to buy a SSD for mine, and I was wondering which one you use (or other than ssd?)

Re: 51nb 8th generation intel x201 motherboard

You are making me have a few second thoughts to be honest.

That being said, I kind of have the impression that if the experience turns into a nightmare and I can't get Linux to run properly and stuff like that, their laptops seem to be fairly easy to resell to collectors (unless they break down).

Re: 51nb 8th generation intel x201 motherboard

Hi! I am trying to get one of the x210 boards from https://weidian.com/item.html?itemID=2205138453 did some one already order a board to Europe? Since as far as I saw it is not possible to fill in a European address in the web shop, how did you do it? I ordered a x210 with an i7-8550 by contacting t...
