Open Issues

  • Inclusion of X1C6(and Thinkpads in general) into the fwupd program:
    • Status as of 2018-07-31: the X1C6 is now supported by fwupd, but in my test with BIOS update 1.27 the firmware is downloaded and noticed by the BIOS at boot but updates don't seem to actually get applied. --Alan Orth (talk) 12:17, 31 July 2018 (UTC)
      • Are you sure you have not accidentally disabled "UEFI updates from Windows" in the BIOS settings? --Mrfaber (talk) 12:15, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
      • I've just successfully updated from 1.27 to 1.28 via sudo fwupdmgr update. It shut off the laptop, then displayed a progress bar(and a second one in red too, very ominous!) like it did with the update ISO on a flash drive I had used before, beeped loudly a couple of times, and rebooted. Now I'm showing version 1.28. --Mrfaber (talk) 21:12, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Fingerprint reader

See github.com/nmikhailov/Validity90, especially the 9a branch.

Device id: 06cb:009a

Status as of 04/2018: "Init works, leds work, scan doesn't work yet"

Other Power saving

Investigate how to get Watt usage down to ~2W like the Dell XPS 13 9360/9370, similar to the instructions on the XPS 9360 page, especially since the i915 video driver can be tweaked similarly with the Intel Graphics Module Powersaving Options since it’s also an HD 620 integrated video unit.

NFC

Does anyone know if the NFC itself works? I think it should be listed in the Model description > Support section's feature table.

Memory card reader

I am not sure if we can remove the section about the SD-card reader draining battery just yet.

For posterity, here it is:

You might also need to disable the Realtek memory card reader (which appears to use a constant 2-3 W) either via the BIOS or via

echo "2-3" | sudo tee /sys/bus/usb/drivers/usb/unbind

Good catch - removing that section was unintentional. Added it back. --Unmadindu (talk) 17:53, 8 September 2018 (UTC)
