- Asus X99-A II
- Radeon VII
Let's check some things:
Are you able to read the chip successfully with all required pins connected?
- First, the pins:
- Because Asus TB-EX3 is detached from motherboard and has no power source, we need to connect Pin 1 (3.3V power).
- When three read attempts all produce difference checksums, we should not attempt to write to the chip!! Only when three consecutive read attempts are successful we know that all required pins are okay, power is okay, chip is in good state. Then we can reprogram the chip.
Are you referring to pin 1 on RPi or Winbond side? I got pin 1(3.3v) on RPi going to pin 8 of wb. After the flash attempt reading the bin files using the strings command brings back nothing, whereas before they were not empty, different checksums but at least not empty. I will do the wiring from the beginning and try again.
