Just to be sure, does the brightness control work with the Coreboot patch, just as usual?
yes.

And are the problems with docking stations also solved or do they still need to be taped?
no idea as I don't have one.

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

it's the latest commit in my fork: https://github.com/daduke/coreboot/commits/x220_fhd I have contacted the coreboot ppl re: merge or PR but no reaction so far. The X230 version of the patch hasn't been merged either. Thank you for your feedback! Would your VCC to VCC3P commit also work on a x230 (...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

new commit - you can now power the nitrocaster PCB from VCC3P instead of VCC, reducing sleep battery drain (see description on the website ^) :thumbs-UP: Thats great for x220 users. I am using an x230 with FHD mod and coreboot. Is your VCC3P commit 840a47e available in the coreboot master? I couldn...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

see https://daduke.org/hardware/x220-fhd/ actually, now that i found you... I saw this comment on your post about disconnecting the power lead on the board, and shorting a pin on the nitrocaster board. If I choose _not_ to do that, I can still use your fork of coreboot, right? yup, just revert back...

I'm in the process of installing my mod on my x220. https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/bm12t1/halfway_done_with_the_nitrocaster_fhd_mod_on_my/ I noticed that in i3-wm running on Arch, things are really only fully functional (more than just a desktop background) if I have an external monitor...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

First, the display flickers every 10-15 seconds, and it looks like there's falling snow. It's really bad at the grub boot screen (it flickers non-stop), but once logged in, it settles down to every 10-15 seconds. check the LVDS cable in its socket. I've seen that too. Second, the Ubuntu login scree...

probably, it's worth a try. just revert 840a47e if you're not using VCC3P.

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Wow, that's so cool! I understand this is to be built on Linux but I reckon after flashing it, it would also work when booted into Windows, correct? (Just because of another Windows user comment above?) So, would it also require a different installation of the power line itself? If so, where exactl...

new commit - you can now power the nitrocaster PCB from VCC3P instead of VCC, reducing sleep battery drain (see description on the website ^) I assume changing power to VCC3P means resoldering the power contact on the board. Where do you draw VCC3P from? no. Remove the power wire and short J1, that...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

guess what - there is :D

I ported the X230 LVDS patch to the X220 and compiled a working coreboot BIOS. I'll document the process and detail it on my website. Stay tuned.

cheers,
