How to flash the Card
You are going to do this flash in a mac (However if you want to back up your PC rom you will need to do that in a pc). Also the computer must be running Panther, NOT TIGER AS THIS WILL NOT BOOT WITH A PC CARD THAT HAS NOT YET BEEN FLASHED.
1.Download the X800 XT rom from strangedogs.com. It must be the modified reduced rom as the card has a 64 kb chip on it.
2. The Sapphire card has a Device id of 4A 4A. The rom for the X800 XT has a device id of 4A 48. You must use Hexeditor and change the device id in the rom on lines 3 & 8 to 4A 4A.
3.When you have done that, save it and using Rorqual's Graphicellerator install the rom into the no confirmation flasher. It must be this one!
If you are installing in a G4 you must also tape pins 3 & 11. You don't need to do this with a G5.
4.Either use a PCI graphics card with your monitor connected to this and the X800 in the AGP slot or use VNC & another computer so you can see what you are doing.
If you use a PCI card bear in mind that if the card is also an ATI card it's going to get flashed as well, so this will need to be reflashed later!
5. Boot up Panther & hit the No Confirm flasher that is on your desktop. All ATI cards that are in the computer will be flashed.
6. If you are successfull, when you reboot you will see the grey Apple screen.
Reminder:This Card will only work with VGA MONITORS. DVI will not be functional!!
