    It seems that /s switch doesn't suppress versions checks, it just removes showing dialog boxes with messages for user.
    So try to flash directly with winphlash.exe.

    - Download "flash.bat" and place it in the folder with winphlash.exe.
    - Run "flash.bat" as administrator.
    - Wait until flashing is completed.
    - Reboot your laptop.

    Warning: This "flash.bat" is intended for T61, T61p ONLY. Don't run it on other ThinkPad systems.

    This forum spoils some links. Click on the word "ThinkPad" instead of "X200" :).

    Middleton,

    That worked perfectly. Thanks a lot. The /s switch did skip the version check and updated bios on the background. Users, please be aware that you will not see a updating status dialogue on the screen but you will see some activities on your file explorer or the cmd window for sure.

    The patches for ThinkPad T60, T60p and for IdeaPad S10-3, S10-3t are also available now.

    Hey middleton, I really appreciate your work, as this FN / CTRL placement is my only gripe with my X61 Tablet.

    I was wondering though, does the X61 Bios update work with X61 Tablet?
    When I try to do the flashing, I get:
    "BIOS image file cannot be found."

    Any ideas?

    X61 Tablet has its own separate BIOS which is not compatible with X61. I've added the patch for X61 Tablet (see the first post of this topic).
