T430s: Meltdown/Spectre BIOS Update, 2356 missing on list

#1 Post by BokiM » Mon Jan 22, 2018 5:03 pm

Hello together,

does anyone know why the T430s Type 2356 is missing on the BIOS Update list at the following page?

So far, only 2352, 2353, 2354 and 2355 are listed an scheduled for february.

Will there be an update for the 2356? Where's the difference between the 2356 and the other version?

Thanks in advance

I suspect there's no difference, unless the CPU is magically an AMD one. It's just a listing difference.

I am going to cry, though as I really enjoy having my hacked T420s BIOS with the admin mode, now I'll have to hope for an updated variant to unlock the goodies, let alone the darn white lists will be back. So I've gotta run it bare, and hope for herd immunity protection! :banana:
