Hello, I installed High Sierra on my x240 with Intel 7260ngw wifi/BT. I use USB wifi as wireless adapter.
When I first installed, my bluetooth of intel wireless 7260 adapter was detected and worked well, after reboot, it started to not to detect any bluetooth devices.
Is it posible to fix?
Thanks

There is a x240 bios version 2.36 but then that model is newer.
Have you tried 2.34 ? Does it remove whitelist ?
Hopefully it does, i will test tonight.
My CH341a or soic8 test clip is damaged, so i can't remove whitelist for now until the newer one that i ordered arrives (should take around 3 weeks).
Hi @Sniki .
Lenovo has just released the BIOS version 4.8:
Summary Description: A vulnerability was reported in older ThinkPad systems that could allow a user with administrative privileges or physical access the ability to update the Embedded Controller with unsigned firmware.
You see removed Whitelist?

Hmm, you mean they removed whitelist ?
Or you won't be able to remove it anymore at all ?
Have you tested ?

I personally removed whitelist like two weeks ago in latest version, if this is newer than two weeks ago then this means we can still remove whitelist.

Not supported and won't work, don't bother trying and wasting time, you have no choice but to mod bios and replace the card with a compatible one and have no problems anymore, or wifi adapter which is a PITA as well.

I know but unfortunately it doesn't work and there is no fix for that.
The reason it was working on your first installation is:
Because it was not a cold boot and the firmware remained loaded when you started installation after last windows boot.
As soon as you shutdown the laptop and leave it for a while it won't load back.

Ok. DW1560 BCM94352ZAE (with AE) is compatible?
