No he's right. The script uses the same file name in order to replace the input file by the output file.

How dare you doubt Master Netkas!  Angry

So, how do I get my 6870 working?  I thought something would be posted that I have to download??  I'm kind of new with this, so I feel like a noob here looking around for some kind of file to download.

BTW, this hack is posted on Macbidouille, so expect more testers.

EDIT: oops. Made a mistake in the guide. Don't jump straight to step 5. You still need step 4 (pithon script).

So what rom do we use or are there any efi + bios ones already made for the 6870? I'm not really seeing much in the way of links (though it is only 7am here). I'd love to upgrade this 5770 I got to something better (especially for the 160-180 the 6870's are going for). The other thing is what brands/card #'s have the best success for flashing?

Your own one and the one in netkasĀ“ post.

Just checked, lspci shows: LnkSta:   Speed 5GT/s, Width x16

so, whatever sysprofiler says, its 5GT/s not 2.5

Maybe a stupid question but what is the command to flash to modified ROM back, I assume I boot back into DOS and use the amdflash command....

So does this work with any 6870 card then? can you use the 2GB models or stick with 1GB?

You can use winflash in windows

New roms to test.

also included smaller, efi-only roms for 6870 and 6850, you need to inject them to your bios dump before using.

As a result please provide sshot of system profiler with graphics section.

what's new in these rome vs. the one you had me flash yesterday?

If Apple doesnt change the way they make their ROMs, then yes.
