X1 Yoga 3rd Gen firmware update using fwupdmgr broke my boot

Q: X1 Yoga 3rd Gen firmware update using fwupdmgr broke my boot

This is a heads up message as I was able to recover my system by doing a grub2-install booting from a recovery USB. I must say I had used `fwupdmgr update` before to update my Thinkpad's firmware and it worked flawlessly. However, this last update left my boot pointing at the wiped out Windows boot in UEFI, which rendered my boot broken. If anyone from Lenovo is listening, please try to avoid breaking Linux user's systems . It is more disapointing when this happens using a Linux only toolchain (Btw, kudos for the support of lvfs!) This is my `fwupdmgr get-history` output in case it provides some useful info: 20LDCTO1WW System FirmwareDeviceId: d3db6c5633d83a940028fc88d8102d1f1563e3a4Guid: fc5552dc-7882-409b-9b98-699361c74fc4Plugin: uefiFlags: internal|updatable|require-ac|supported|needs-rebootChecksum: SHA1(804154ccc003a77e9b0d88fcb2d52cf12050e434)Version: 0.1.29Created: 2019-06-06UpdateState: success[Release]RemoteId: lvfsVersion: 0.1.34Checksum: SHA1(269cea4389dd420e58b88f182eabeaab23d74e85)Flags: noneBootMgrDesc: legacyCompileVersion(com.redhat.fwupdate): 12DistroVersion: 20190607CompileVersion(org.freedesktop.fwupd): 1.2.8SecureBoot: EnabledCompileVersion(com.redhat.efivar): 37UEFIUXCapsule: EnabledESPMountPoint: /boot/efiCompileVersion(org.freedesktop.gusb): 0.3.0RuntimeVersion(com.dell.libsmbios): 2.4DistroId: opensuse-tumbleweedCpuArchitecture: x86_64BootTime: 1559848020RuntimeVersion(org.freedesktop.appstream-glib): 0.7.14RuntimeVersion(com.redhat.fwupdate): 12RuntimeVersion(org.freedesktop.fwupd): 1.2.8KernelVersion: 5.1.7-1-defaultUEFI Device FirmwareDeviceId: a9ca34786c44d8798eb70e2ee146c8e7a6b9c613Guid: 7c38c98a-c3e9-4c15-b0cd-c634d441cf7fPlugin: uefiFlags: internal|updatable|require-ac|supported|needs-reboot|reportedVersion: 184.50.3460Created: 2019-05-18Modified: 2019-05-18UpdateState: success[Release]RemoteId: lvfsVersion: 184.60.3561Checksum: SHA1(e456603812053e0f68997db7ccd9358b5c030f8c)Flags: noneRuntimeVersion(com.redhat.fwupdate): 12CompileVersion(com.redhat.fwupdate): 12DistroVersion: 20190516CompileVersion(org.freedesktop.fwupd): 1.2.3SecureBoot: EnabledCompileVersion(com.redhat.efivar): 37UEFIUXCapsule: EnabledESPMountPoint: /boot/efiCompileVersion(org.freedesktop.gusb): 0.3.0RuntimeVersion(com.dell.libsmbios): 2.4DistroId: opensuse-tumbleweedCpuArchitecture: x86_64BootTime: 1558215027RuntimeVersion(org.freedesktop.appstream-glib): 0.7.14RuntimeVersion(org.freedesktop.fwupd): 1.2.3KernelVersion: 5.1.2-1-default

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.)

HI, I wanted to update a firmware on my HP lt4112 modem in HP 840 G1 Laptop, so I downloaded from the Drivers page proper file: http://h20565.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5405097&swItemId=ob_152395_1&swEnvOid=419... . I downloaded it and run the exe. After a few phases, when it came to "restoring user data" it stuck, and after a while an error popped up saying: "Error code: 21 - couldn't restore user data". From that point the modem is not visible in Device manager in WIndows. I removed the cover, remove the modem, run laptop and then instal it once more and restarted laptop, but the system said that a new WWAN modem was installed which is not on the list and therefore the system will switch it off. I tried to run previous upgrade: sp69476, but now the system does not even find the port for update ("Error code 10- Could not find the port"). Please help me, because I did everything properly and now my modem does not work. 

A:Firmware update broke HP LT4112 WWAN Modem

Exactly same issue here. HP ZBook 17 G2, LT4112.OS Windows 8.1 Pro.After executing the sp72435 Softpaq, the program stopped with Could not restore user data.After that the only thing left in device manager is the serial port Gobi PC UI.If the above softpaq is executed again it detects the port but times out at Get Device Information. Is it possible to put the device somehow in Recovery mode?

A:X1 Yoga and Intel ME Firmware update being pushed but how?

Lenovo System Interface Foundation (LSIF) is doing this.  The only purpose of this app is to support Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion, so if you don't install these apps, there is no point to install LSIF.  One of the features of LSIF is to automatically install "critical" updates for Lenovo software and drivers, such as this recent Intel ME Firware update.
 
The Deployment Guide for Lenovo Settings and/or Companion explains this feature and how to disable it:  https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/hf003321
 
I have copied-and-pasted the relevent section below:
 
Chapter 4. Considerations for Deployment
 
Lenovo System Interface Foundation contains some features which may not be appropriate for enterprise customers.  Please read this section carefully to understand these features and consider whether they should be disabled in your specific environment. 
 
1.  Automatic Updates ? Lenovo System Interface Foundation updates itself automatically whenever a new version is posted to the Lenovo website. Some IT organizations will want to disable this.  The automatic update can be disabled by registry.  To do so, copy-and-paste the below text into a .reg file and then import it into your registry:
 
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Lenovo\ImController]

Hi All!Using the Lenovo System Update tool, I've updated the bios. It said everything went succesful.However under Device manager, there is an error for the System Firmware:"This device cannot start. (Code 10)Indicates a revision number encountered or specified is not one known by the service. It may be a more recent revision than the service is aware of."I've tried "Update Driver" but everytime with this same result.I've also tried "Uninstall Device". But then it goes back to a driver from 2006 (indeed the error is gone) and when I update the driver, the error is back. Also, after the update (during booting the computer, it says it was successful), the update is still listed under the System Update Tool, indicating it actually didn't install (see below). However, just trying it again, doesn't result in a different result. Does anyone have a suggestion what could be going on?(I think the bios update, which just a few days back became available, is related to certain security problems that Intel was having...)

Argh. Ever since I installed the Lenovo NVMe Solid State Drive Firmware v36 as recommended by Lenovo Vantage on 25 January 2020, I've started getting bluescreens.  The laptop will also sometimes complain about M.2 problems at startup.  Just now, my laptop went into a loop of bluescreens at startup while I had my USB-C dock from ALogic plugged in (which connects my external monitor, Focusrite USB Audio Interface, and my Lenovo USB power adaptor... things I really need to use). Drive performance seems to have taken a nosedive since that NVMe firmware update, apps occasionally seem to lock up while waiting on drive IO. I didn't have any of these problems before updating to the v36 NVMe firmware, or the associated v1.38 BIOS / Intelligent Thermal Solution Driver v1.0.1.335 / Power Management Driver v1.67.17.48 releases that all came through Vantage on that same day.  I only updated because of all the news media stories about Lenovo's fixes for critical ThinkPad USB-C problems, but frankly I didn't have any of these problems until I installed the patches from Vantage. I feel like these patches gave me the problems it was meant to avoid! Hopefully Lenovo is aware of the problems and seeing the bluescreen telemetry trickle in?

Hi all, Yesterday when I turned on the computer and logged in into windows, a warning-window poped-up asking for recomended "Firmware Update" by Lenovo. I ve proceeded with the update. After an intall-restart I wasn't able to log in with my fingerprint anymore. After a small investigation I've realized that are now three devices with problems (Code 31) in my device manager.The devices are:Biometric Devices - Synaptics WBDI - SGXSensors - HID Sensor Collection V2System Devices - System Interface Foundation V2 DeviceSo, besides the FingerPrint, I'm not able to use the Auto-Rotate (when turning the lid into tablet or tent mode) feature and the Lenovo Vantage Software since it asks me to update the System Interface Foundation Driver. What I have tried so far:Reinstall (since I can't rollback) the Firmware Driver: "Type C Firmware for Windows 10 (64-bit) - Yoga 920-13IKB, Yoga 920-13IKB Glass 1.3" (since there isn't a lower version to roll back)Reinstall all drivers from Lenovo web-page (FingerPrint, System Interface Foundation, Chipset, Display, Audio, etc)And finally, Reinstall the operating system Windows 10 64 using system restore I've not clue what to do next and I'm really avoiding opening an RMA. Please help me. Thank you.

I did some updates on my Yoga and now my touchscreen no longer works. I have gone to the device manager and updated and checked on it. No luck. My pen works, but the finger touch does not. Nothing else seems to have happened to my computer past the updates. It seems like others seem to have this problem since updating their computers. My computer is no longer under warranty, and since I bought this thing for its touchscreen, I am a little choked that it has gone kaput. Would it have been the update that caused it, or would it have been just a case of it went kaputsky at the same time and it is a mere coincidence?

Get a messagebox saying "battery not detected" and it's not charging from mains. So laptop has now turned into a desktop... as needs plugging in continually... making it almost useless for purpose. This happened exactly after firmware update a few weeks ago. By coincidence the management software also kindly informed me that it could manage the battery better and stop it wearing out by only charging up to 90% - fair enough, but don't treat me like a muppet and disable it without any way to get it back. Tons of Windows 10 updates today (after not being able to use it for a few weeks) but still no battery. I tried F1 BIOS but nothing there to enable the battery (only to disable it). This is frankly a joke - timing shows it's due to the firmware update because the battery was fine and lasted a couple of hours right before. In 25 years of countless laptops, have never had this problem - batteries weaken gradually but don't suddenly lock up and require a paid replacement suddenly. How do we run down our original battery properly before polluting the planet? Phil

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.

Hello, the Alpine Ridge update fails. Lenovo Vantage signals that an update is needed. When I download it and run it, it keeps failing with the following message: After that I tried to do the update without Vantage through  https://support.lenovo.com/de/de/downloads/ds502887Which led to the following error message: I suspect there is an error in the firmware updater. Is there a newer / working version available? Best RegardsPhilipp

Lenovo automatically installed a BIOS (1.39) and firmware update in November.  Lenovo Vantage says these updates were completed successfully. The touchscreen and pen stopped worked after that.  Windows doesn't recognize the pen or touch input anymore.  Firmware tool says "device not found".   Latest BIOS update (1.40) and Windows update in December didn't help.

My X1 Yoga touch screen stopped working after BIOS(V1.40), Touch firmware(V4.20) update. My Win 10 is still at ver 1803.I downgraded BIOS. But that doesn't help. Can't find a way to downgrade touch [email protected], any solution? Obviously, I am not the only victim. It is ridiculous that your recommended update will cause such trouble.In other thread, someone mentioned to replace screen. Really? The new update caused hardware damage?

The title says it all. I'm very frustrated with this problem since I really need to connect my laptop to an external monitor for work. I've read and tried all relative topics in this and intel forums (e. g: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Yoga-920-can-t-connect-to-any-external-mon...), have done all steps mentioned (including firmware, bios and windows update, windows reset, ...) but the problem still persists. Apparently, most users that had faced the same problem been able to get it worked after installing "Type C Firmware for Windows 10 (64-bit)" or the BIOS update provided by Lenovo. I installed them successfully but nothing changed. I am sure it is a software issue since there is no sign of any hardware one (all devices are fine as device manager shows and diagnostics app found no problem). It was just working fine until suddenly stopped working (probably after some recent windows update). I would greatly appreciate any help.

Will Lenovo release a fix for critical vulnerabilities in Intel Management Engine for my Lenovo Yoga 500-14ISK? I have not found it on the official Lenovo list, but Intel's tool says it's vulnerable. I have Intel ME firmware version 11.0.0.1197 and it's a Skylake version of this Yoga notebook. It's still on warranty. There is not my notebook:https://support.lenovo.com/pl/pl/product_security/len-17297

I just installed the latest firmware for the Intel Management Engine (11.0.18.1002) on my P70, under Windows 7 x64, and now my fingerprint recognition is not working at boot. I still get prompted for a fingerprint, and it's still successfully recognized, but then during the "handover" between that bit of software and the rest of the boot process, the icons seem to indicate that my fingerprint was not recognized, and I now have to type in the user password. How do I fix this?
