The DIRT3 cards don't NEED to be FLASHED to UNLOCK them ! the unlocked shaders are on the 2nd BIOS, ... but like I said ... IF you just went and FLASHED an incompatible BIOS over that 2nd BIOS ... then you've potentionally messed up your card, and it's going to take some major effort to correct this.
And obviously the other FACT could be you have one card with Laser Cut GPU/locked BIOS and therefore NOTHING YOU DO will UNLOCK THIS CARD !
Understood.. I didn't try to flash them in bios 2 with an aftermarket bios per say..I tried to flash the one that is not unlocked with the pulled 6970 bios switch 2 bios number 2 via the switch on the card. the card are still running fine in bios 2 mode.. switched to bios 2...
Cards are going back tomorrow... 40 more bucks and I can have that 6970... I think that is worth the headache that I causing myself and the members here at OCN lol
Thanks everyone for your help..
