Hack Correlation: Non-genuine battery in Lenovo X230
[...] Second, the battery is suited for an X220 model, not X230.
Third - and most importantly - the battery is a fake, with less than the advertised capacity.

If you still decide to continue, then read on. Some nice people have managed to decrypt the EC firmware inside the Lenovo laptops and allow for a way to rewrite it: [...]

hamishcoleman/thinkpad-ec: Infrastructure for examining and patching Thinkpad embedded controller firmware
The main purpose of this software is to patch the EC on xx30 series thinkpads to make the classic 7-row keyboards work. There are also patches included (but disabled by default) to disable the authentic battery validation check.

With the patches included here, you can install the classic keyboard hardware on many xx30 series laptops and make almost every key work properly. The only keys that are not working are Fn+F3 (Battery) and Fn+F12 (Hibernate)

Unfortunately, there are a small number of thinkpads with a model number from the "xx30" series that are using a completely different EC CPU and a different BIOS update strategy. Thus they are not currently able to be patched. This is known to be the case for at least the L430, L530 and E330.

OpenWrt Project: Upgrading OpenWrt firmware via LuCI and CLI
An OpenWrt upgrade will replace the entire current OpenWrt installation with a new version. This includes the Linux kernel, the SquashFS partition and the JFFS2 partition.

The common upgrade paths below will automatically preserve much of the OpenWrt OS configuration by saving and then restoring configuration files in specific common locations (including /etc/config). This will preserve things like OpenWrt network settings, WiFi settings, the device hostname, and so on.

OpenWrt Project: Failsafe Mode, Factory Reset, and Recovery Mode
OpenWrt offers several ways to “start over” with your router.

* Failsafe Mode is useful if you have lost control of your device, and it has become inaccessible, perhaps through a configuration error. It allows you to reboot the router into a basic operating state, retaining all your packages and (most) settings. (see Failsafe Mode)
* Factory Reset erases all your packages and settings, returning the router to its initial state after installing OpenWrt. (see Factory Reset)
* Recovery Mode allows you to install new firmware on a router that has become corrupted. (see Recovery Mode)

OpenWrt Project: 4/32 warning
Every operating system requires

1. Sufficient Flash to accommodate firmware image
2. Sufficient RAM for stable operation

Devices with ≤4MB flash and/or ≤32MB ram will work but they will be very limited (usually they can't install or run additional packages) because they have low RAM and flash space. Consider this when choosing a device to buy, or when deciding to flash OpenWrt on your device because it is listed as supported.

OpenWrt Project: Quick start guide for OpenWrt/LEDE installation
The following preparation is recommended, before flashing OpenWrt/LEDE firmware:

* Don't rush the installation, take your time. If something seems weird during installation, find answers first before continuing.
* Have your device's precise model name at hand (so you are able to select the correct OpenWrt/LEDE firmware)
* Have your devices's documentation at hand, on how to flash new firmware
* When installing and configuring OpenWrt/LEDE on your Internet router, your Internet-access will obviously be offline for a few minutes. Please ensure that you have all required information offline or have backup Internet access at hand in this time.

OpenWrt Project: Welcome to the OpenWrt Project
The OpenWrt Project is a Linux operating system targeting embedded devices. Instead of trying to create a single, static firmware, OpenWrt provides a fully writable filesystem with package management. This frees you from the application selection and configuration provided by the vendor and allows you to customize the device through the use of packages to suit any application. For developers, OpenWrt is the framework to build an application without having to build a complete firmware around it; for users this means the ability for full customization, to use the device in ways never envisioned.

Ask Slashdot: Linux-Friendly Desktop x86 Motherboard Manufacturers? - Slashdot
The release of Haswell-E and a price drop on Devil's Canyon has made me itch for a PC upgrade. However, looking around I discovered a pair of horror stories on Phoronix about the difficulties of using Linux on a multitude of motherboards. My question: if MSI, Gigabyte, Asus (and by extension Asrock) are out, who's left and are they any good?

Open Wireless Movement
Imagine a future with ubiquitous open Internet.

We envision a world where, in any urban environment:

* Dozens of open networks are available at your fingertips.
* Tablets, watches, and other new devices can automatically join these networks to do nifty things.
* The societal expectation is one of sharing, and, as a result, wireless Internet is more efficient.
* The false notion that an IP address could be used as a sole identifier is finally a thing of the past, creating a privacy-enhancing norm of shared networks.

We're working with a coalition of volunteer engineers to build technologies that will let users open their wireless networks without compromising their security or sacrificing bandwidth. And we're working with advocates to help change the way people and businesses think about Internet service.

I bought a new T1 reader in end of November. At first, the battery held for a couple of weeks, now it seems that it runs out in about a week.
I do connect my reader to a PC several times a week to sideload new books. Can it be the reason?
I thought a computer would charge the battery, not drain it.
