Coreboot / Thinkpad X220

Plan to partially liberate our many Thinkpad X220 laptops with coreboot for maximum fun.

Current Progress:

  • Images Dumped
  • SOIC8 test clip ordered
  • flashrom toolchain built (raspberry pi + test clip)
  • Coreboot compiled and configured for X220.
  • Desolder OEM 8MB EEPROM and solder the 16MB EEPROM.
  • Emulate coreboot rom (get a dev env up)
  • Write coreboot rom to 16MB eeprom


  • Get VGA working?
  • Do further development by flashing internally.

Raspberry Cloud

A set of Raspberry Pi computers connected to the space.

Current Plan:

  • Manage 7 raspberry pi computers with Salt Stack
  • Destroy (redeploy clean) each computer automatically on a weekly rotation
  • Name the computer after the day it gets destroyed
  • Accessible to anyone that has registered a SSH key in Noisebridge's meatspace.
  • All persons are expected to have sudo access to the servers they are using.
  • All persons may not have access to all servers.
