W701/W701DS Whitelist Bios

#1 Post by TTA » Sat Feb 03, 2018 8:03 am

All the links I've found are dead.
I know there are a couple 1.3 BIOS out there with the whitelist removed but does anyone still have it?

Yea, that's me.
I have the BIOS now and it works. I have it tucked away in case this thread pops up again

Hello Jim
for my rather vintage lenovo w701 id like to upgrade my LTE 3G mini pci Express to a more modern card and got error 1802
is your exe in post 1 the solution to get rid of the white list?
or do you have it stored away at a different location?
best regards
Leon

Sorry for barging in, but what do you exactly mean with the whitelist removed? The whitelist for the WiFi card or other elements as well? (Because it would be awesome if the whitelist for the GPU is removed as well). I own a W701 and wouldn't really want to install a BIOS which I don't know is working and corrupt my main and only machine. Thanks in advance!

Edit:

And ahah the link is not working, so it'd be awesome if you still have it tucked away somewhere!

It just works with the wifi card whitelist, not the graphics card. Coreboot might be able to solve the GPU problem. I can try to find the unwhitelisted BIOS.

This whitelist bios only removes the wifi card restriction.
I do own a w701 too, now with Dual Band Wireless 7260AC Model 7260HMW :D
Works lika a charm...

best regards

I've downloaded it, thanks! I'll upload it on my Dropbox soon (or at least create an alt Dropbox account) so I can have a permanent link and I'll post it here. I have an W701 exactly and thanks for specifying the model of the card. Would be awesome to get the 5GHz and BT 4.0. I think that the W701 has 3 antennas connected on the main WiFi card. Can you tell me which ones did you connect? (I don't know whether Bluetooth uses an antenna of it's own)

Is this wireless card better than Intel® Centrino® Ultimate-N 6300, Dual Band? I found one 7260AC on a local marketplace and unsure whether I really need to get it. It seems that the 2.4GHz WiFi speed is better on mine card. And on my card bluetooth is not listed while it is listed on the 7260AC. Would it be a good choice to get the other WiFi card?

It'll be better for sure. Increased speed depends on your BIOS though. Personally I'd recommend an AX200 in an adapter, or modifying the chinese mPCIe version to have both antennas connected.

@Zastrix:
connection is easy: plug the gray cable into the jack labeled MAIN and the black cable into the jack labled AUX on the 7260AC
Please take a look in the Hardware Maintenance Manual for further information (Page 103).

And yes, the 7260AC is definely better than the 6300 - if you have an AC WLAN.

You may want to check the comparison:

I have uploaded this file: Lenovo_W701_1.30_6KET60WW-6kuj12us_nWL_.rar
NO idea if, where or how it works.
NO guarantee either.

Uploaded again, but now for the last time: https://www.sendspace.com/file/zmbzdm
Get it while the going is good for the next 30 days.
After that, it will be gone the way of the dodo.
