cookbl, your images are too wide and stretch the forum even on FHD resolution, so I removed the img tags. Imgur has a way to generate thumbnails of a variety of sizes for every link; feel free to use it.

My x220 in Malaysia with my brother. We have upgraded it quite a lot and reluctant to change to newer model. To us this is a legendary model. Lolz...

Well, we are totally newbie when comes to any mod required on the motherboard or something need soldering. We are seeking whether any members here are from Malaysia able to help us out on this mod.

Hi all,

I still have troubles with building the patched FHD coreboot for my X220. I managed to build the non-patched one, and flashed it successfully, but I would like the FHD patch of course... :)

I tried multiple times on different versions of Linux. This is on a Ubuntu 14 VM, running with gcc 7.5.0.

I get stuck on the make process:

Code: Select all

In file included from 3rdparty/vboot/firmware/include/../2lib/include/2crypto.h:11,
                 from 3rdparty/vboot/firmware/include/../2lib/include/2api.h:23,
                 from 3rdparty/vboot/firmware/include/vb2_api.h:18,

                 from src/commonlib/cbfs.c:17:

compilation terminated.

make: *** [build/bootblock/commonlib/cbfs.o] Error 1
Could somebody help me please?

Hi all and big thanks for nitrocaster!

This might be stupid question but is it safe to start x220 without attaching internal display cable to motherboard/mod first? I'm asking this because I would like to test my soldering after installing mod just to see does laptop even boot. If its fried I can just skip ordering screen :)

Update 31.5
I finally received my screen (LP125WF4-SPB1) from win0win and installed it. First I only had screen power on and backlight controls but after resoldering pins and reseating cables I got picture! Now I'm typing this with my FHD modded X220 which just got 5 years of more lifetime (at least) :D
I will look at reflashing my coreboot with dadukes version to get rid of ghost screen, but for now I just enjoy these glorious amount of pixels!

You probably had this already sorted out but Ill write it up if someone else is stuck:
I also had problems when compiling dadukes fork. I decided to re-apply FHD patch without VCC3P power mod to recent coreboot master fork and it works for me. I had to enable "Hardware init during option ROM execution" option under payload so I see POST screen on boot (otherwise screen turns on only on OS start).
So here is yet another fork, x220_fhd branch https://github.com/tabasku/coreboot/tree/x220_fhd. See commit 230b475 if you want to apply only changes I made.

Thanks for daduke for this patch!

Hello all,

New here in a near future upgrade to FHD of my X230, do you guys have any experience with BOE NV125FHM-N62 in rev.6?, I've seen that some guys had some problems with it and it's getting tricky to buy LG LP125WF4-SPB1 and LG LP125WF4-SPB4 nowadays...

And hint before buying BOE NV125FHM-N62 will be appreciated!

Cheers,
Bruno
