Don't you think that using pirated software is a bad thing to do?
Do you want me, the author, to tell you why your pirated copy do not work?!

Funny, what can I say..

Maybe your colleague bought it from the same place as you and he paid the same price = nothing Smile
Anyway, if you have a license issue, feel free to contact our support, but I think is not the case.
Thank you.

hi every body;

I read and the post by allservice. It was a very useful information and I was so happy getting it. However, I tried that with ThinkPad R52 and it did not work. The eeprom mounted in the system is 24C64W by CATALYST Semiconductor Inc. I reviewed its block diagram and found it typically the same as ATMEL 24RF08, with one missed pin (PROT) which I found out it works as a protection for the chip. Since the missing port is always set high and it it was not exist in the 24C64L, I assumed that both chips are identical and proceeded with the instruction shown in the post anyway. Since it did not work, then they were not identical. I was upset and tried to find an alternative solution, and run through the Universal EEPROM Programmer, a device that you can buy, and I thought if I got it and took my eeprom out of the board and tried to refresh it or write its information from scratch, with no password of course, it might actually work. BUT since I did several trials and non has worked and I still have my laptop NOT damaged, I thought it would be a good idea to ask some professional first.... Any help ? would the eeprom burner work as a final solution? or should I give up and just send my system board to IBM ??

Thank you
Mohamed Elnamaky

I have a Thinkpad t42p that unfortunatley has a supervisor password set.

After reading a thoroughly around the forums, I found this wedsite:


It seems that someone other than joe in australia has created a 24RF08 Reader and is also selling it...

Was wondering if anybody has any experience with this alternative device?

The 24C64 eeprom contains only the Broadcom NIC firmware, the password is in the PC8394T-VJG.

@Thinkpad T42:
The website you mentioned is just selling interfaces, I guess the software proposed there is R24RF08/W24RF08 which is allservice.ro property. We agreed with the owner to let him put our banner there. Please read also the first post in this thread for more info.

I guess this topic has reached a good milleage and is already the most visited in this board. Anyway, I think everything has been said in this matter and I will ask Tom, our beloved administrator, to take it to a glorious end. (But I hope it will remain sticky)

If anybody will have questions about this subject, I will try to reply to any PM in my box or to give my humble support in the forum.
