I like your flexible attitude towards these things! To answer your question: We should always test a Thunderbolt component first without flashing the firmware. We see what works, what fails. Based on what fails, we consider whether flashing the firmware can partially or fully solve one or more of the failures.Yes I have exactly your described setup. Gigabyte Designare Z390, 9900K, etc.
If I'm totally ok with the USB plugs, camera etc. Not working on the Thunderbolt Display, would still love the sleep/wake to work, and that I can confidently boot my computer "blind", would I even have to flash, or enable bus?
All details are in Section 8 of Quick Reference spoiler at the top of Post 1. This question about an alternative to the Raspberry Pi has been answered fully in that spoiler.If I do have to flash or enable bus, How do I do that? I cant seem to find a definitive guide without it looking like a seperate titan ridge controller was purchased. Is there a way to do it without a raspberry pi?
This is how we connect a Thunderbolt monitor regardless of whether the firmware is flashed or not.If I dont, is it really as simple as display port wire from RX580 to the built in mobo DP, then thunderbolt adapter out to the display from one of the thunderbolt ports on the motherboard?
No problem. But please take a moment to look through Section 8 of the Quick Reference spoiler. You will get a good sense of what to expect if you decide to flash the firmware. Again, we should not flash the firmware until we have first tested our Thunderbolt components with the original firmware. Flashed firmware is not fully compatible with Windows and Linux.Again, very sorry for the probably super nooby questions.
