Corebooted X220 update:
The wifi card was still the intel one which requires the blob to work. I just upgraded the Intel WiFi card with the FOSS Atheros ATH-AR5B95.
Next step, I think I will replace Arch with Parabola , but is it worth it? I don't really have any non FOSS software installed on Arch.

Finally got myself a nice new old laptop. X220 which I upgraded to 16GB of RAM, USB C charging, brand new battery and most importantly I externally flashed the BIOS chip with coreboot. The ME has been cleaned (as much as possible ) with the ME_Cleaner Python script and it's now, proudly running Seabios and Archlinux. 🤘 @distrotube @ArchLinux_Community @OpenSource

I've got my eyes open wide to the ceiling
I'm lying on my back in the centre of a room
I've got a voice giving me a funny feeling
Its telling me the world's going to end real soon
I've got to get a job otherwise I'm unappealing
Do my little dance for the man and consume
So I let my energy build for the healing
So I can reign down with my super sonic boom
