Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (Gen 8)

Will work on it and see if I can get the HCLs for T470s and T490s. Yoga 720 died a while ago. But it was working.

I made a mistake re X8. To get wifi on Carbon X8 to be recognized, I needed to upgrade the kernel to the latest. I still haven’t figured out how to get the microphone to work on it. This is the HCL for the Carbon X8.

@oijawyuh Have you figured out how to get the TPM working for this machine? Have you came across any issues with this machine? I heard NSA can hack into the intel processor if its not blocked properly or flashed not sure but is it a real thing? Is that why people get the older ThinkPad like 230/430?

You probably mean this: Intel Management Engine - Wikipedia.

For this reason, Qubes recommends Neutralized/Disabled Intel ME. See here: Community-recommended computers.

See also: Intel ME - real threat for ordinary persons?.

Also because of the freedom: Laptops | RYF.

Thank you for sharing, But would this mean the machine ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8 Is not Neutralized/Disabled Intel ME.

@ioio4dio your questions are beyond my ability to answer. I guess T430 is the only solution?
