You said you are running the 9400GT in your first slot, yet you are trying to unlock rom in the first slot if i am reading it correctly

Don't RMA it, I did this to a 5870. I went into a DOS-USB stick, flashed it from there, and it worked fine.

EDIT: Yea you also have to use -f -p 1 to flash the second card. Or you might be able to do -f -pa to flash both, it will fail on the 9400 as it's a NVidia leaving it unaffected.

EDIT EDIT: Wait a second! Aren't the new cards un-unlockable? Actually I don't even think the Twin Frozr was ever unlockable.

Yep, I've tried with 1 as well.

"Nope, I just found out after bricking it that my TwinFrozr II is non-ref without the switch"

Do not flash non-reference cards.

Though I still feel sorry for you. I'm getting a 6970 reference instead of 6950 and flashing it.
Yay

Yeh I thought my TwinFrozr II was ref because I read somewhere that the TwinFrozr III is a ref...

So you CAN read! To bad you didn't read up some before you tried to flash a card that isn't supposed to be flashed.

No shiz sherlock, which is why I'm asking for help. The different variations of the 6950 confused the hell out of me.

Are you actually going to help, or do you just like trolling random threads?

And you misspelled 'too.'
