Have you bricked your RX 470 or RX 480 because of bad BIOS or the flashing went wrong? In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to fix the bricked GPU by restoring the original BIOS and then to flash again a modded version.
A few days ago, I was helping a friend to flash a modified BIOS on two Sapphire Nitro+ RX 480 8GB OC for a better mining hashrate on Ethereum, and not only. The thing is that flashing the BIOS on the first card went perfect, but for the second card, we spent like 3-4 extra hours to figure what is wrong with it. We followed the same steps like we did with the first GPU (same steps I am showing in my tutorial).
What really happen? Well.. the flashing went well with no errors, but after the restart, we got a strange blue or black screen.. after few more restarts had the same results and at that point, i knew that there was something wrong with BIOS.
Once you complete this steps, your GPU should be running with no problems.. feel free to flash a different modded BIOS version with different timings, like I did.
In the end the card was faulty, maybe from the manufacturer and was replaced.
Hope this was helpful! Good luck!
