<francis7> ah
<francis7> I know X60 will work
<francis7> so will T60
<francis7> because I'll reset them
<francis7> and it's easy to find testers for those
<francis7> as for testing x200
<francis7> I really don't want to take equipment with me, so I was
worried about bricking my x200 when testing
<francis7> but.............. FOSDEM has like 20 coreboot hackers
there, who all sit in a room dedicated to coreboot hacking, for the
whole 2 days
<francis7> so if I brick my X200, I'll just go there and unbrick it
<francis7> any T400 users here willing to be a test subject this weekend
<francis7> (fosdem has a building called the AW building. coreboot
people are there)
<francis7> kgpe-d16, kcma-d8 and kfsn4-dre are covered (I'll spam
tpearson until he responds, for testing)
<francis7> then I just need to ping damo22 for testing his 2 boards
<francis7> c201 I can leave alone, I know that works (I'm not touching i
* francis7 has it all under control
* francis7 is planning 4 days of non-stop libreboot development, while
<francis7> (I'm leaving early, going somewhere else before fosdem)
* khot_1 heeft verlaten (Quit: Leaving.)
<francis7> ah
<francis7> testing needs to be done on friday actually
<francis7> preferably thursday

So, I'm at FOSDEM this weekend, and will need people to test ROM
images for an upcoming libreboot release (which may even be made while
at fosdem). Any libreboot users here that wish to be test subjects
(warning: bricks are possible. you'll either need an external flasher,
or nerves of steel).

If you are willing to be a test subject, please respond!

Hi Francis,

I have a T400 6474EC3 and an X200 74587PG where I could test releases.

Suspend works on the X200 with recent libreboot, but is broken on the T400 (I haven't had the needed time to dig deeper.). The T400 also freezes sometimes with libreboot - sound will loop and the capslock key is blinking.

I have a hardware programmer, but I might not be able to unbrick the T400 in a short time frame. I want to solder wires to the flash chip so I don't have to take the whole thing apart every time and I have to go to a makerspace to do so.
