Hi Leah,

Just tried out T400_8mb_usqwerty_txtmode.rom on another T400, this one with a 1440 x 900 display.

Before, I would get a display after booting into Trisquel.
With 82-g5090b51, I no longer get a display at any point, or any backlight.

Left on its own, the T400 does get to the Trisquel login prompt (I hear the little pop, and I can blind shutdown Trisquel using the upper right corner menu).

One thing about this T400, I swapped the original 1440 x 900 display for a better one from another T400. But the screen was fine with the earlier Libreboot version.

Screen: 42T0498 LP141WP2-TLB1

Thank you,

coreboot was updated for X200, T400, R400, T500 and GA-G41M-ES2L. Can
people with these boards test those ROM images and report results back
to this list?

NOTE: brick risk is high. Make sure to have your SPI programmer ready.

Expected behaviour:

* boots GRUB, boots GNU/Linux properly as before
boots Trisquel fine

* no weird issues

* suspend should now work on laptops listed above, as should resume.
with libreboot 20150518: close lid -> crescent light -> open lid -> resume
with 82-g5090b51: close lid -> crescent light -> open lid -> blank screen, crescent light still

* text mode should work (see new txtmode images for laptops above)
boots Trisquel fine

* improved raminit for ga-g41m-es2l (e.g. 800mhz dimms, etc. ask
damo22 for more information. damo22 is in the IRC channel)
not tested...

Thank you for Libreboot,
