i already posted in the polaris bios mod thread but found this one while googling. maybe it's the better place to discuss my problem<br><br>
no i found the following quote in the comments of the 8-1 pin method:<br>
that seems to be the case for my card. does anybody have an idea how to fix it apart of the pin shortening?<br><br>
if not i have to go the pin route. does anybody have an idea where the bioschip of the strix 480 is located? after some googling i found a picture of the back of the pcb but the resolution is not that high. i marked the ic i suspect to be the bios.<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="https://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3062255/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="3062255" data-type="61" src="https://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3062255/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 197px"></a><br><br>
I tried atiflash 4.17 from 2013 but i get a "adapter not found". any other dos versions i can try?<br><br><br>
€dit: i used every force string available with atiflash and what can i tell you: The freaking Card is up and running again!!!! should have tried that earlier. already got my solder iron ready <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="https://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3062329/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="3062329" data-type="61" src="https://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3062329/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 177px"></a></div>
Was that the correct chip? Which is pin 1 and pin 8?
How did you get it to recognize the GPU? Mine's still prompts "adapter not found". Tried unlock rom and force commands but nothing.
