    Hey everyone, so I used Coolane's Mobile Pascal TDP Tweaker to raise the power limit of my Alien's 1060 from 78 watts to 120 watts so I can get the same framerate in all games as my similar spec desktop does.

    The problem is that when I try flashing the modded vbios using NVFlash, it gives me an error message: Screenshot (36).png

    I've used NVFlash before to unlock my GT755m's on my Lenovo Y510P before and never got this message. Am I doing something wrong?

    You cannot use NVflash, need a physical programmer.

    If you've at least read coolane's thread you should know :v

    But why not? I thought he said there needed to be a version of NVFlash that supported flashing pascal vbioses before we could use NVFlash to flash them. The newest version of NVFlash supports this as far as I understand.

    I believe you could only use Nvflash to flash the original/ signed/ non-modified vbios.

    Update: It seems I can't use nvflash to backup my vbios either. Any command results in this error:
    ERROR: Unable to start service (0x0000001F)
    Detailed :A device attached to the system is not functioning.
