    I would like to use a Huawei WWAN (EM770W) in my Thinkpad Yoga 260.

    Does anyone have one of those modified BIOS files which doesn't check for whitelist ?

    I have been using similar modified bios fw on my Thinkpad x220 tablet since 4-5 years but am no longer able to find one for TPY260 or the instructions to edit the bios f/w for enabling this.

    @amione unlike straightforward X220 series, flashing BIOS on newer Lenovo models will require Raspberry Pi or some programmer with other equipment, read about flashing X230 BIOS - from my understanding should be similar. You can get whiltelisted Lenovo EM7455 FRU 00JT547 - it costs around $80 - and sell your Huawei modem, it will end up cheaper and easier than messing with BIOS.

    Looking for long-term owner reviews... How has yourYoga 260 held up? Any specific hardware issues? Any problems with hinge longevity...did they become floppy over time? Did you need any Lenovo support or warranty service and how did that work out? TIA.

    Does anyone here have an HD display version? How does it compare with FHD in terms of brightness? Does it have PWM?
