Re: Intel AC 7260 w/Pin 51 Removed on My T520 (Pics Link)

So I went back to the 1vyrain instructions on Github - I knew I had read about the importance of getting write permissions on the SPI protected range registers (PR0-PR4), and I do remember when I ran the 1vyrain process, it gave me a warning that 4 of those were still write-protected. So I tried to ...

Re: Intel AC 7260 w/Pin 51 Removed on My T520 (Pics Link)

All this was after I installed the Intel drivers (in this order):
BT_21.10.1_64_Win10
WiFi_21.10.1_PROSet64_Win10

Should I try uninstalling BT_21.10.1_64_Win10 and try installing the newest version (but not made specifically for AC 7260) BT_21.110.0_64_Win10

Re: Intel AC 7260 w/Pin 51 Removed on My T520 (Pics Link)

OK, so I got the Intel AC 7260 in the mail and installed it. The Wi-fi works, shows up in the device manager, but Bluetooth does not show up. When I did the 1vyrain process, it gave me a warning that 4 out of 5 areas were not writeable, and I thought I read some instructions that said everything nee...

Re: Intel AC 7260 w/Pin 51 Removed on My T520 (Pics Link)

Thanks! I ran IVprep and then 1vyrain, and everything seems to be OK. I'll get the Intel AC 7260 wi-fi/bluetooth in the mail in a week, and then I can test it out. I already disabled the Intel ME after rebooting. Great forum! Thanks again.

I especially would like the option to disable the Intel ME engine, using 1vyrain's advanced menu (as it claims). I never knew about the Intel ME engine, but glad to know about it now, and try to disable it.

Re: Intel AC 7260 w/Pin 51 Removed on My T520 (Pics Link)

I don't mind attempting to modify the BIOS, but unfortunately just recently I had updated by BIOS from A11 to A24 (which is now version 2.77), and 1vyrain says it will only work with BIOS version 2.60 or below. Even A11 was higher than 2.60 I think. I looked at the instructions to "downgrade" my BIO...

Re: Intel AC 7260 w/Pin 51 Removed on My T520 (Pics Link)

Would taping the 51st pin on an AC 7260 work for a T530? I saw a video with someone using black electrical tape for an X220 and it worked. I just got a T530 on eBay and looking to upgrade various things on it, after updating the drivers, BIOS, etc.
