This will allow you to flash modded BIOS to your GTX 950, 960, 970, 980, 980Ti, Titan X. I did not make NVFlash. I edited it to allow the flashing of modified BIOS. If you try to flash a stock, none modified BIOS, it will not work.


Found a newer version of NVFlash than what is posted? @ me in the thread with a link and I will get it bypassed and updated.

New in version 5.287: Pascal Support. They changed a lot in the code and I had to find a new bypass point. You will see the following errors while flashing (that have been highlighted). You can ignore them and continue as normal.


Current Version of the NVFlash Certificate Checks Bypass: (USE ALL SOFTWARE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!)

Best version for MAXWELL GPUs! v5.218

Thanks for the effort.

Certainly a good idea to help the community find the latest version of those tools easily. Previously, I didn't even know there was a new version of MBT until I saw a comment in one of the threads, would have completely missed it if I wasn't following the discussions there

Thanks. I'll try to keep it all as current as possible. I don't expect to have to bypass NVFlash again for some time but I do see plenty of updates coming for Naennon's MBE.

I basically made a new account to find some NVFlashes compitable with my MSI GTX 970 GAMING 4G and I've gotta say this one WORKED!
biggrin.gif

So I've gotta say this is confirmed for MSI GTX 970 GAMING 4G users.
wink.gif


Thanks very much man, all the other NVFlashes I've found recently (I guess V. 190?) I've always got the message 'Need a newer Version of NVFlash to update your Graphics card's BIOS'.


Well this fixed it for me and I've gotta say huge props to you for editing/updating it to the latest version to allow us NVIDIA GTX 9xx users to update our BIOS to the most recent version.

Thanks again and keep up the great work!

Yes, some new BIOS required the v196. For others the v190 and v196 will both work fine like they have for me.

Not that I am aware of. All new versions of NVFlash for the 970/980 are meant to be used in Windows.

Hi Joedirt


Quick question if you know, MSI have released some updated bios for 970 an 980 gaming cards to fix the fan issue at idle with newer drivers .
https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=184740.0;all


You see any issue for modding those newer bios and using your latest modified Nvflash ?


Of course they supply there version of Nvfalsh but i am sure it won't take a modded one .

I was looking at the 970 182 version ( NV316MH.182 ) , looking at bios it looks like its a modified 126 version ( 84.04.1F.00.F1 )
