E7470 firmware upgrade on Linux

Q: E7470 firmware upgrade on Linux

Hello,

I'm running CentOS 7 on E7470, and a few of the devices aren't working, like smart card reader, fingerprint reader, etc. According to some sources, deploying the latest ControlVault firmware/drivers package may fix some of those.
The native installer is built for Windows, and I was wondering if it'd be possible to do the upgrade by either booting a Windows portable/live version and running the upgrade, or, copying the installer to a USB and doing an upgrade in the way it's done with BIOS upgrades on Linux?
Perhaps LVFS? (Although compiling that on CentOS 7 is not really straight forward)
Regards,Milos.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Here's another (risky?) idea: There's a Windows 10 VM running on top of libvirt/KVM, and I can do USB passthru of Broadcom 5880. Driver isn't applied by default, so I'm tempted to try how wrong might things go if I were to install ControlVault2 firmware and drivers for these devices as they're passed thru to the VM.
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Hi, I'm trying (unsuccesfully) to apply the latest firmware upgrade (1.18) to my T470p laptop, using the only OS I have: Ubuntu 18.04. I tried downloading the CD ISO (r0fuj18wd.iso), flashing it to a USB pen, but the laptop refuses to reboot from there.Further notes:-) from BIOS: I restored defaults, and I also secure boot; my current firmware is 1.17-) I tried both flashing the .iso directly to the USB flash (that shows up as /dev/sda), using dd or other USB flashing tools (even unetbootin from a Windows laptop), and also to create a FAT32 or FAT16 partition, then flash into /dev/sda1, setting also the bootable flag on the partition with fdiskThe result has consistently been the same: when I reboot, after selecting boot menu and temporary boot device, I choose the USB drive, but it doesn't boot anything from there. On a related note, when I insert the USB disk, I see an empty disk labelled "R0FET44U".Is there anyone who succesfully managed to install such a firmware upgrade from Linux and might have a useful hint ? Thanks!

There is a new firmware release (FWNV15) for the NVMe SSD of the X1 Carbon 5th. I'm wondering if there is a way to perform the upgrade on a machine with no Windows installed on the internal SSD?
 
I've installed Ubuntu on the NVMe SSD and have a external USB Drive with Windows 10.
 
I tried to run the Firmware Update Utility on the "external" Windows 10 but no luck so far. Windows reboots and after it's up again the utility just shows some generic error message.
 
Also, there doesn't seem to be a booteable ISO.
 
Any recommendations on how to upgrade the firmware with my setup?

A:Upgrade NVMe SSD firmware to FWNV15 (X1 Carbon 5th Gen) on Linux

The upgrade utility sometimes fails before it reboots windows with a message like "can't initializie linux system". So I investigated further and found that the updater in fact is an ELF binary  $ file fwupdater_i686_Win10_LPMoff
fwupdater_i686_Win10_LPMoff: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, interpreter /lib/ld-linux.so.2, for GNU/Linux 3.8.13, not stripped Which also seems to be pretty easy to use: $ ./fwupdater_i686_Win10_LPMoff
PROGRESS --- start firmware update.
Usage ./fwupdater_i686_Win10_LPMoff <Model> <Serial> <Firmware> [Option]
Model : Drive Model Name.(Mandatory)
Serial : Drive Serial Number.(Mandatory)
Firmware : Firmware Image file path.(Mandatory)
Option : Additional Option string starts with `-'.(Optional)
PROGRESS --- completed with status(8). And the necessary info which firmware to use is in a file called fwwinsd.pro: $ cat fwwinsd.pro
"THNSF5512GPUK TO","5KLA5102","5KLA5104","TINYCORE","fwupdater_i686_Win10_LPMoff","5KLA5104_NVME.sig","L","TOSHIBA"

Hello, maybe someone can help me out with the problem I have upgrading the firmware of my T470s. The installed version is 1.11 (from June 2017, I think.). It runs archlinux and is no dual boot system i.e. there is no windows version on it anymore. I have learned that one of the usual ways to update is using the tool fwupdmgr. When I run the tool with "fwupdmgr update", the output is "No releases found for device: Not compatible with firmware version 0.1.11, requires >= 0.1.14" Maybe it is possible to install the current system firmware (which is 1.33) directly with "fwupdmgr install <xyz>.cab", but I don't dare to do so because I don't want to brick the hardware. So my question is: Can this be done savely and if not, is there any other way to upgrade the firmware without using windows? Thanks and kind regards

A warning for X1C6 users on Linux. With the latest Intel Management Engine Firmware update, versioned 11.8.65.3590, S3 sleep is broken. The system will drain a fully charged battery in a matter of hours under the new firmware, and it is impossible to downgrade the firmware. This is with the "Linux" sleep state option enabled in BIOS, and everything was working correctly before the upgrade. Lenovo, please address this issue and ensure proper QA for your Linux user base going forward - this is unacceptable.

A:install firmware in Linux

@efueyo Basically, you can't -- which is why many of us retain dual-boot systems -- because most, if not all, of the system utilities provided by manufacturers run ONLY in Windows. HP distributes their utilities as compressed archives -- and the only tool I know of personally that can extract the components is 7-ZIP -- another Windows utility. If you CAN extract the components, you can see what they are, but most likely, the only executable parts are going to be MS Windows only.

I'm running a T440s with two type A02 Ultra Docks. My OS is Linux Mint (currently 18.3, shortly to be 19.3). I have one dock (manufactured 14/06) with out of date firmware that I'd like to update to see if it resolves a problem (flickering display when laptop reconnects -- I've been using a KVM switch with two laptops). The newer dock is a replacement which hasn't exhibited the problem. It may be a hardware fault but would like to try a firmware upgrade. How can I do this? (ie., without re-installing Windows just to run this) My laptop doesn't undock properly -- I get a blank screen on both laptop and monitor. I know of but haven't tried the dockd solution available from github; I'll wait until I've tried a newer Linux kernel first. It would be helpful to know from now on what minimum kernel release is required for docking station functionality to work.

I am running Ubuntu 19.10 on a recently-purchased X1 Extreme gen 2. The installed BIOS version is 1.26. I looked in the Drivers & Software page and I see that 1.27 was released on 29 October. However, running `fwupdmgr --get-updates` says "No upgrades for 20QVCTO1WW System Firmware, current is 0.1.26: 0.1.23=older, 0.1.23=older". How long does it usually take for firmware updates to be available via fwupdmgr? Should I manually update? I downloaded the BIOS Update Utility for Linux and the README. The directions in the README are clear, but nowhere do I see the 20QVCTO1WW ID mentioned above and want to make sure that I have the correct files. The BIOS Update Utility download is called `n2oul06w.zip` and contains 3 CAB files: N2OET40P.cab, N2OET40W.cab and N2OHT32W.cab. Is this the right file? Which one should I apply? Thanks in advance,-Mario.

The linux version of the latest BIOS/ECP firmware (1.44/1.18) for the X1 Carbon 4th gen (type 20FB and 20FC) and X1 Yoga 1st gen (types 20FQ, 20FR) was released Aug 2 (n1ful37w.zip) https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/de/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-... Direct link: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/n1ful37w.zip That .zip file contains two .cab files, N1FET70W.cab and N1FHT35W.cab, for the BIOS and ECP respectively. Updating the BIOS in linux for my X1 Carbon 20FB worked fine for me with fwupdmgr, but failed for the ECP. This was because the metadata for the ECP update has a typo. Inside the N1FHT35W.cab file is a firmware.metainfo.xml, with a GUID of: 4c2e5b5c-6467-43af-afeb7bc72d96b9c3 This is incorrect. It's missing a dash, and should read: 4c2e5b5c-6467-43af-afeb-7bc72d96b9c3 Modifying this file within the .cab (or extracting it and generating a new .cab) and then flashing that with fwupdmgr fixed the problem. I've attached the modified .cab file (nested in a .zip file for upload). You can check yourself that the only thing that's changed is the GUID line in the .xml file. This typo should be fixed in the source by Lenovo and reuploaded as perhaps a rev 2 for n1ful37w.zip . Hopefully this hasn't happened for any other firmware update files.

I have a DVD burner which is at least a few years old. I am trying to use 16x disks to burn DVD movies I downloaded and am having alot of trouble. I know i probably need to upgrade the firmware on the burner so it can handle the 16x blank disks. Can I forget about upgrading the firmware and just pick 8x as the burn speed and use the 16x disks or do i really need to upgrade the firmware? I was able to burn a data disc with the 16x discs with no problem, just not DVD video. Thanks.
 

A:Firmware Upgrade

Firmware does not affect DVD writing speed (unless there's something seriously wrong). If it succeeded in writing a data disk, it should be able to do the same with a video.

Sometimes a disk burning session fails without a special reason, try another disk. Of course, you can set your program to burn the disks at a lower speed. 16x is only the top speed at which the disks can be burnt not the only speed.

I found this don't know if it will work:

RPC2 firmware where the number of "User Changes" and "Region Setting" snap back to the pre-flashing settings every time you cycle the power on the drive.

This effectively gives you an infinite number of region changes, without all the software BS required by an RPC1 firmware. For more info try Google, or a search on rpc1.org

I recently updated the firmware of my DVD/RW combo drive from the Dell website. Since then, I have had problems burning blank DVD media.

When I insert a blank DVD-R in windows the drive turns into "CD Drive".

Image burning software behaves in different ways, some see the D drive as "not accessible"; one will read the media as a DVD-R with "4488.06 MB free" but confusingly call it a CDROM project with 700 MB free; a final will go through the entire burning process of data, claim it was successful but upon opening/re-closing of the drive or examination of under the disc it is apparent no successful burning occurred at all and the disc is indeed -- still blank.

The drive can read and play DVD movies, previously-burned DVD data, music CDs etc.

Any ideas?

EDIT: This is a software not a hardware problem. DVDs burn fine in linux and can be read on both operating systems. Hmm.

A:BIOS Cannot See CD-RW/DVD-ROM After Firmware Upgrade

If a BIOS flash goes bad (and unfortunately a significant % do) then it is often the end for the drive, (or motherboard when the PC BIOS is being flashed).

The golden rule is never to flash a BIOS unless you are correcting a known hardware compatability issue. It isn't a recreational activity.

The problem is that if the failed flash prevents the drive from appearing on the IDE BUS, then it cannot be accessed to reflash it back to the original version.

This evening, I happened upon a benchmark that I had not seen before and tried it with my P70. http://www.userbenchmark.com While overall machine performance indicators were very high, NVMe SSD sequential read performance between my two Lenovo-supplied 512 GB devices demonstrated a significant disparity.  Further, the faster one contains firmware ver. 6L0Q and the slower one, 5L0Q -- the parts appear to be  otherwise identical: I am assuming this variation is probably due to rev. level of firmware.  Does anyone know of a method (and location) for obtaining and installing the latest updates for these particular devices? Any help would be appreciated.
