No but I guess I need to try to make sure it's ok. Have you switched to the second bios if you have that option, it being a known good one?

Not sure if it's from that or not, I did a shut down and it hung at boot up. Switched to safe bios and got same thing but I didn't quit switching between bios's and just kept trying, probably 5th retry and it booted on modded bios.

So be aware all and take caution.

So, everyone's Fury's are dying after update?
I think I need to try multiple restarts now.
post #85 of 1392
Don't have a full picture yet, can't speculate too much. Seems it may just be a coincidence as some it may push too far.

Just tried like 10 reboots and 6 cold starts from poweroff - without a single failure.

If you experience boot problems, please try to do the following:
- leave bios switch in non-booting position;
- boot with another card and use Fury as a second one. Usually you can't use IGP for this, so you'll need to get some old card to boot with.

After boot, run cmd.exe as administrator, cd to your atiflash directory and try this (using command line version of atiflash):

- inspect cards with atiflash -i and find number N of your Fury card (it could be 0 if your boot card is not supported by atiflash, or 1 otherwise)
- dump your non-booting bios with atiflash -s N badbios.rom (N is your card's number)
- reflash your card with known good bios by atiflash -p N good_bios_backup.rom
- IMPORTANT: make sure atiflash finishes without errors! Look for "Reboot your system to complete VBIOS update" string at the end of output.
- don't reboot yet, but run separate verification by: atiflash -v N good_bios_backup.rom. Verify must complete w/o errors.
- pack together your original bios backups, patched bios and just backed up rom and upload somewhere.

If anything with atiflash goes wrong, copy its output from command line window and post here.

Just wondering if one cannot do something similar to unlock the rest of the CU's of the Tonga chip that I am seeing being done to the Fury air? Sorry if it has already been answered.smile.gif

Here is a small update to atomtool, v1.1
http://rghost.ru/68mVPFxG6

Activation code should be little cleaner now, but I'm not sure about any difference in real work.
This could possibly improve boot up stability with modified rom.

I'd advice people to refrain from unlocks now, at least until we'll deal with this bootup issue or prove that all unlocked Furys are dying in flames.
At least, my card still works well smile.gif
