Just want to say a quick thanks to Netkas and Rominator.

Bought myself a used 3GB Sapphire Dual-X HD 7950.

I’ve flashed several 5770, but never a 7950, so decided just to try the Rominator ROM from post 2 in this thread.

Flashed it on my MacPro 3.1 and it worked just fine in that machine, boot screens, and both display ports and DVI (didn’t try the HDMI)

It is now running in my 5.1, all is good. including quiet fans,

Thanks guys, my MacPro is now Metal-ready

sorry to dig out the old thread...
but... i´m flashing a gigabyte hd6970 oc 2gb rev.1 (GV-R697OC-2GD ) using the guide from #1.
have found an archive with the rom creator Cheesy (for anybody in the attachment)

yesterday creating a rom. first tryed a saved rom from atiflash-4.17 under dos (freedos) with the unflashed card. no errors logged. rom done with lion 10.7.5 on my mac pro 1,1/2,1 (upgraded)
result: black screen, running fans. (power from logicboard 6pin and from optical bay with adaptor molex to 8pin)
today flashed another rom, now created with a rom (yesterday) saved under win with gpu-z with the unflashed card. used rom creator under el capitan, no errors logged.

in both cases no new id and so on. (picture attached) => you can see what i have done for flashing.

what i made wrong ?
have anybody a matching patched rom ? maybe icemac ?

Hello all  -

Thanks in advance for starting this thread and developing the firmware tool to make things easier for people.

I've followed the instructions, but can't seem to get my early 2009 MacPro to update to 5,1. I'm running El Capitain 10.11.6

I came to this method by way of this article...

...and am using these steps below, to no avail....

Updating the Firmware
More research uncovered that it is actually possible to update the 2009 Mac Pro firmware to the one used by the 2010/2012 Mac Pros. This proved to be a little tricky, but easily doable using these steps:

Boot into safe mode and disable System Integrity Protection (SIP) on OS X 10.11 El Capitan by running this command in the Terminal:
csrutil disable
Boot back into your regular account.
Download the firmware update from Apple and open the DMG to mount it in the Finder.
Download the (unsupported by Apple) 3rd party Updater Tool to apply this firmware update.
Run the Updater Tool, which recognized the mounted DMG, rebooted and applied the firmware update.
Check that everything works and then boot info safe mode and enable SIP:
csrutil enable

....any idea why things might no be working or what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks again!

Hello guys,and Happy New Year!
 I just picked up a Mac Pro 5,1 (mid 2010) with the ATI HD 5770 stock video card in it, and want a better card, so I picked up a Sapphire Radeon R9 280X VAPOR-X OC card for CHEAP. ($38) I have built three 2,1 Mac Pro machines, and one 3,1 so this is my first one that isn't obsolete lol...
I know the Sapphire Radeon R9 280X VAPOR-X OC is a great video card as per all the reviews on it, and it should boot into High Sierra without flashing the ROM.
Now... my question is this:
   Should I leave it alone and just deal with the black screen until login, as per my Mac Pro 2,1 with an ATI Radeon HD 5870, or should I flash it with the proper ROM file? I intend to upgrade the quad core cpu to a 3ghz 6 core XEON and run OSX Mohave. I can always leave the ATI HD 5770 card in and boot off it when I want to use a boot screen to have another boot option.
What would you do?

PS- If anyone suggests to flash it, please guide me to the proper ROM file Smiley
