Just popped by to say thank you for sharing the 1-8 pin pdf I would not have written a guide without your help, linkcorey666 left a message on my profile page If you get a chance take a look; some of the thanks I am sure is for you.
Just wanted to thank you for your advice in the thread: "ATI 5850 Bad BIOS Flash (ATIflash no adapter found)". I recently had a similar situation with my HD 6770, and jumping the 1 and 8 pins on the chip, allowed atiflash to recognize the card again! I was just about to put the card up, and mark it as bricked/junk, until I came across your advice in this post. Thanks again, Shawn!
