Ok i got a 360core with thermal i got a new bois for the xt 256mb with the same ram. I am using flashrom and the -p command says something like is already flashed or written or something i cannot remember. But it does not flash it.

I am afraid of forcing it and I know that the -l command and the -i command both specify that the bios is "locked".

Does this mean I cannot flash it? I know the pcb is a xt just it has been flashed with pro from factory. AtiFlash cannot flash 9800s right?

-f should make it work fine. Have a spare PCI video card on tabs just in case something goes wrong.
