Re: X210s

I purchased mine from this listing: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SQ5ZU6A My seller was Blue Donut however, we had confirmed a few months back in a Reddit post that they're good for genuine batteries. Unfortunately it looks like their stock has dried up but you could always go for one of the other se...

Re: X210s

Hi guys, I want to get an x210 kit and follow in these footsteps. It seems ridiculously obscure as to how to buy a kit: how do I get in line or whatever? This is harder than buying drugs. Honestly I think the only thing you can do is wait until Jacky responds, unless some other exporter shows up bu...

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

Also, if anyone wants to get a classic Thinkpad-esque battery meter into their taskbar on windows, check out BatteryBar. The free version lacks any kind of customization (so you have to be content with the default settings), but is otherwise" fully functional". Battery bar is a great hidden gem of ...

Just a quick report: Suspend/wake issues seem to have been resolved since updating to the new BIOS.
Can confirm this too, I have been testing for a couple days and haven't experienced any issues. Sorry I had been meaning to post an update here about it but I kept forgetting.

Re: X210s

The X62 splash is so much better looking: https://i.warosu.org/data/g/img/0570/71/1476457692924.jpg Here's a couple mockups of X210 in the same format (edited): https://imgur.com/a/Exqbd Just to clarify. On X62 logo 2007 is not the date from 51nb's history (or may be i am wrong;) - this is the date...

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

Have you tried the new bios? Check thread I posted earlier it says it works well with the X250 driver after it.

Re: X210s

It seems they removed SATA support on the M2 slot, my drive wasn't being detected but moving it to the 2.5 bay with an adapter worked. This is probably a bug then. Is this the M.2 slot or the mSATA slot next to the WLAN card? Also, did you notice other relevant changes? Might not be worth upgrading...

Re: X210s

Is this going to be the general thread for X210 discussion? I'll start posting here instead, I go by the same username over on Reddit and I bought mine prebuilt from the LCDFans Facebook page. I've confirmed that the M2 slot is SATA capable in addition to NVME. See later post on BIOS update - SATA M...
