x301 EC not upgrade

#1 Post by OhYou_ » Tue Sep 27, 2022 5:20 pm

I've tried to flash the ec on my x301 with no success, both the bios and linux report it as 1.04.
I have flashed both the latest bios and ec a couple times, and even moved out the fl1 (bios) file and flashed just fl2 (ec) and it just doesnt change.
Lenovo reports that 1.05 is the latest version

Exactly which BIOS are you flashing and how are you flashing it?
The modified BIOS linked by RBS above doesn't update the EC, you have to flash the official BIOS first to do that.
