    Those of you updating and who didn't read full instructions don't freak out if your screen is on black and keyboard light is on.

    If you find your computer is shut down with keyboard backlight on, you can keep press the power button longer than 8S and press the power button again to start the computer. The BIOS should be installed properly.

    I'll be installing this shortly, but if anybody could do a rough battery estimate in the meantime it'd be much appreciated.

    It seems that this makes some people's fan run crazy or something? What's messed up is that some of these people said that the original yellow didn't really bother them, but now the fan does! I would hold off on this if you are okay with your current colors no?

    Same here. No complaints and yellow is good now. Battery life seems the same, which is much better after undervolting.

    I possibly missed this in another thread, by undervolting, are you referring to some 3rd party app which can undervolt the cpu to save power?

    I have downloaded and installed the BIOS update and the Energy manager. There is no change to the appearance of yellow. Suggestions? I have already confirmed that the BIOS update was successful.

    I have the same issue. Ran the update, confirmed it updated, still have a poor yellow display.
