Introduction

Lenovo G505S is the latest most powerful laptop from the Supported Motherboards list of coreboot open source BIOS ( FAQ about coreboot ) which does not contain the Intel ME / AMD PSP hardware backdoors inside its' CPU. That makes this laptop very unique and valuable to any hardware/software hacker, and hopefully this page could be of a great interest - and maybe even useful! - to you, the visitor of DangerousPrototypes

Current status

The software of this laptop is already 98% open source and free-as-in-freedom ; this page will describe the hacking efforts to liberate the remaining 2% as well as to make this laptop truly future-proof by collecting the described spare parts and upgrading its' various components

Future plans

1) Fill this page with a lot of truly valuable information (a bit unexpected? ;)

2) Create a new "Lenovo G505S spare parts" page ( maybe would come up with a better title )

3) Describe the great-to-have software patches on top of the mainline code of coreboot open-source BIOS ( hopefully we'll get our changes merged and these descriptions would not be needed )
