BIOS Flashing doesnt work

Hey, 

I want to flash the BIOS of my 3060Ti. 
The Chip that is on my card is a ISSI 25WP080.
Basically, this chip has nearly the same read / write instructions like a Winbond W25Q80(EWSNIG).

But the thing is, I cant write or rather said programm anything, because it always says the file 
has the wrong Filesize. 
Basically its a normal BIOS from techpowerup, soo it should work to flash. 

What am I doing wrong? Using the latest firmware and software.
I would really appreciate any kind of help!

 

Best Regards

Hello,

Currently it only accepts a file that's the same size as the flash part. Could you pad the bios file using a hex editor to match the flash size? The flash size is 1MB = 1 048 576 bytes and your file reads as 999 424 bytes.

Otherwise I can add a function to the software soon which can pad the file for you.

Hey, thanks for your response. Sadly im not that deep into that stuff, so I dont know if I do it right, 
when I pad it to the correct size. 

If you can add this function, this would be awesome! And makes the Elmor EVC even better.
If you need someone to test, I can do that. Would be no problem.

For now, can you send a link to the bios file? I'll adjust it for you.

Hello, please try this version. It should give you a popup when you get the error with the option to attempt to adjust the size to fit.

All right, thank you very much Elmor!
I will try it as soon as I can. 

Just decided myself, not to flash the original BIOS Chip. 
Bought instead similar Chips, which I will use for testings.
