That is very interesting - I discovered it was possible after getting a
keyboard only for the power button (DUH!)

But may I ask you where you soldered the SPI connector?? I got a pomona,
but that would be much easier to leave on.

Also, to cool down the CPU and the chipset, are you using the original
lenovo radiator and fan?

I don't have a complete X60 to spare (want to keep my X60), but just

Same for me - I would like to help with the development of coreboot native
video on the X60 tablet (with its 2 other serial ports for the wacom and
irda). But it has been some time since I did that kind of coding, my skills
are rusty and I don't know the new tools (git !) enough to be helpful yet.

However, I can support development by giving away fully working
motherboards to support this endeavour. You only need an ultrabase.
