    I've got a request I'm hoping someone here can help with: I need a full dump of the flash off of someone's card. I'm trying to cross flash an IBM CX-3 Pro intended for a power architecture machine that won't initialize properly on x86_64.

    I'm hoping there's something in a normal firmware outside of the area the firmware updates touch that I'm missing that's preventing me from booting because right now I can't get the card to show up at all unless I use the flash not present recovery jumper.

    If someone could run the command below and send me a link to the image I'd really appreciate it, this's my last shot at salvaging this before returning the card to the ebay vendor I bought it from.
    Code:
    flint -d  <device_here> rb 0 2097152 fulldump.bin
    
    I've already run through every diagnostic I can think of, using someone else's full flash image is the last option I've got left.

    I got the card one day ago, do you still need the dump bin file?
    BTW, the command should be:
    Code:
    flint -d  <device_here> rb  0 2097152 fulldump.bin

    Hey, thanks a lot! I'll pop the card back into a machine and see if I can't resurrect it. The seller refunded me in full and I've had it sitting in a box for six months. Will update in a bit~

    edit: It was worth a try, but it's still unresponsive. Thanks!
