Re: WWAN for T60

Some years back I purchased a few T60 WWAN antenna's directly from IBM parts UK - The T60 14.1" WWAN antenna FRU's were 42W2671(Vodafone) & 42W2670 (not listed in the HMM, but confirmed with IBM parts UK at the time as replacement for FRU: 91P6988). Both these FRU's consisted of three identical part...

Re: T61 cpu in a T60?

Unfortunately no CPU swap can be done between a T61 to T60 (and T60 to T61)
There was a BIOS for the T60 which covered WLAN/WWAN whitelists check "removed" + SLIC 2.1 ---> mydigitallife: post #364 - but the links are now defunct

Re: ThinkPad R60 15.0" FrankenPad - (Pic links)

I thought about doing a R61 FrankenPad , but after buying the parts and slapping it together, it was just too expensive for a second notebook, at least for me anyways. Very nicely done though.

Re: Firmwareupgrade Sierra MC 8775

As far as I can remember, this firmware has two packages: boot file update (H2_0_8_1BT) and the actual firmware application update (H2_0_8_19AP)
As with any firmware update, there is always a risk of bricking etc.
