PostPosted: Fri Mar 07, 2008 8:00 pm    Post subject: Unlocking new models R61, T61, X61, X300 (1), T400, t500... Reply with quote

Updated: Nov 2014
Latest pics will always be added at the end fo this post


We have the confirmation for newer R61, T61 and X61. They don't use a TPM system like T43/R60/X60/T60, they dropped back to P24S08 (24RF08 clone).
Pictures added (as we unlocked them) for: L412, L512, L420, L520, SL410, SL510, R400, R500, T400, T410, T420, T500, T510, T520, T530, X1, X100e, X121e, X201, X300(X200), X220, X230, X301, W500, W510, W520, W530, W701, Edge 13-14-15, Edge E120, Edge E320, Helix.

For eeprom 24RF08/P24S08 and variations like PS08 and L08 you must use R24RF08 - the free 24RF08 eeprom reader - and IBMpass 2.1 lite.

Note: If IBMpass Lite cannot reveal the passoword, then is 100% TCPA locked, in which case W24RF08 (eeprom writer) and our TCPA reset service is required. TCPA algo is changed, is not the same used in the previous models.

If you like us to assist you or to verify the TCPA lock status in order to confim the need of W24RF08 and the TCPA service, simply send the eeprom binary dumps to support@allservice.ro


R61:

P24S08 (8pin) is usually located on the frontside of the mainboard, under the keyboard. Is quite easy to get access there.
For 14' widescreen models, the eeprom is on the backside (second picture). 15' 4/3 models have the eeprom under PCcard cage on the frontside.

R61 eeprom here:

http://www.allservice.ro/forum/images/r61_15_nvidia.jpg [15' Nvidia]

Courtesy JD Choi - Korea for the 1st photo and Mario Dahn - Germany for 15' ones.

T61:

P24S08 (8 pin) eeprom is on the back of the board, you may need to consult the T61 Hardware Maintenance Manual if you want to dismantle it.

http://www.allservice.ro/forum/images/t61-alt.jpg (Alternate layout)

Courtesy R. Katz - USA, for the new T61p images and for all support.

X61:

This is using a small factor PS08 eeprom (24RF08 clone), its position is below the "M" key. It requires the keyboard, front bezel and the modem sub-board to be taken apart.

X61 eeprom here:
http://www.allservice.ro/forum/images/X61.jpg

I wish to express our gratitude to S. Helie (UK) who helped us with the first X61 works, and last but not least, to S. Cyiako (Sweden) who mailed us a perfect X61 mainboard for the tests.

[Updated]

X300, X301, X200 and X201, X220, X230, X100e, X120e, X121e, X1...done. They use the same 24RF08 clone like the other 61's (appart from Z61 series that still use TPMs). For X300, the eeprom has alternate connection points located underneath, near the memory socket. X100e has the PS08 mini eeprom like the X61 and X121e features the L08 (same eeprom).

X300 testpoints here:

X301 eeprom here:

Many thanks to B. Nguyen (USA) for all support.

X200 added (courtesy JD Choi - Korea):

T400 & T500 added here, the same story, same eeprom located on the back of the mainboard as in T61.

T400 and T400s eeprom:

T500 eeprom:
http://www.allservice.ro/forum/images/t500.jpg

We've tested on 2 mainboards and TCPA algo is again different.

Great thanks to V. Rikalovic (Serbia) and M. Yang (USA) for the nice shots.

R400, R500, W500 and W700 - R400 and W500 have the eeprom underneath. For R500 is the same 24RF08 clone located on the upper side of the motherboard, under the PCcard/ExpressCard cage. The board must be removed form the Mg frame and you have to peel the black sticker that covers the area

R400 eeprom:
http://www.allservice.ro/forum/images/R400.jpg

R500 eeprom:
http://www.allservice.ro/forum/images/R500.jpg

W500 eeprom:
http://www.allservice.ro/forum/images/w500.jpg

W700 eeprom:
http://www.allservice.ro/forum/images/w700.jpg

SL410 & SL510 - Looks like the new SL series switched from AMI to Phoenix FirstBIOS so our old friend (24RF08 - PS08) is back in business once again. R24RF08/W24RF08 is the right software, as usual.
*The older SL400/SL500 still need SPEG programmer to be unlocked.

SL410 eeprom:

Thanks to Osman (Netherlands) for earlier T510 pictures.

Edge 13', 14' and 15'
This is an Edge 13 and 15, the rest are pretty similar:

Lenovo L412 / L512
L512 looks similar to Edge15, supposely L412 is also the same design. We'll update the forum shortly:
http://www.allservice.ro/forum/images/l512.jpg

Big thanks go to G. Williams in UK for sending us one of these.

W510/W520/W530/W701
Same eeprom location area for W510, W520 and W530

http://www.allservice.ro/forum/images/w520-w510.jpg


T420, T420s, T520, T530
All of them use the tiny L08 eeprom. These models have passprase always active, and they require TCPA unlock service and W24RF08. T530 has the eeprom covered by the black stickers

PostPosted: Sat Jul 25, 2009 5:24 pm    Post subject: SPEG - Universal serial flash programmer Reply with quote

We are proud to announce our new release for programming Serial Flash BIOS ROMs.

[Edit]
SPEG is available now!
Special thanks to R. Katz (USA) for his impressive work on testing the package with Lenovo T and R series BIOS and B. Nguyen (USA) for all support and ideas. Many thanks to the support team as well.
[/Edit]

The program is SPEG - Universal serial flash programmer and is able to process almost all new serial flashes used nowadays for BIOS in almost everything, even in iphone 3G.
We've paid a special attention to SST chips, they are a bit different from the rest.

Note: SPEG is the right solution to unlock Lenovo SL300, SL400, SL500 and G550. These models keep the password in BIOS serial flash that must be read, cleaned up and reflashed. We offer a free cleaning service/ BIOS repair service with every SPEG purchase .

For the moment this is the current device list:
http://www.allservice.ro/forum/dl/SPEG_device_list.txt

And the list may continue...

Surely, you've heard of Intel Anti-Theft system. This new technology used in latest Thinkpads is very similar to Computrace and despite they claim that has no relation with the AMT, this is not exactly true. Here is an example of one disabled machine we received from a customer (It's a T400 model wired up on an external monitor)

Well, now we can recover the Thinkpads from this thing. The laptop needs a serious BIOS code rework (and also the eeprom 24RF08/P24S08 must be modified, in some cases) and it will be like new. The service is available for SPEG users now.

We can announce now that all HP models, based on serial flash BIOS can be unlocked by our team and that is final. The required software is SPEG programmer in order to read the BIOS and email us the binary to be fixed.

We also worked on various models coming from Fujitsu. We mean those that couldn't be unlocked via codes such as the new models with 6x4 digits hash. All of them could be unlocked after we patched the BIOS.

Some other news is that we could unlock some Macbook Pro in the same manner.

Tests will be carried out so if you have any questions contacts us.

We finished the tests on unlocking MAcbook Pro and Air, models 2008-2013 (that includes late 2013 retina models) succesfully. We can reset the firmware lock (firmware password and pin lock) without altering the orignal BIOS code or credentials.

See the updates here:
