I flash the wrong bios to my GIGABYTE RX 560 GAMING OC 4 GB, and now it won't let me even boot if the card is in.
So, after some googling, I see that I need to make some kind of jumper workaround to be able to reflash the original bios. My problem is that I can't find anywhere some picture or video that shows exactly what chip is and what pins do I need to do the work on.

I add a couple of pics I take, so any merciful soul can point out the correct chip and pins.

Hello
I pointed to the chips that is supposed to be the VBIOS chip.
BUT...there is a but...please make a better picture with close up and more light because i need to see the numbers from the 2 pieces i circled.
That is how i will identify a VBIOS chip

The white dot in the corner usually indicates the position of number 1 pin.
