Thanks for the reply. Yes, i asked for someone with the knowledge who could add support for those GPUs. It just hurts in my hearth to see hardware being produced just for shipping from asia to the rest of the world where someone is being scammed. This person then have to either learn how to solder in and out SPI chips (in circuit flashing dont work on any of those cards i tested) or learn how to write flashrom support for that. Both things are completely out of the capabilities of 99% of the people that got scammed. Like written, when you flash once the correct GPU model bios, then nvflash detects the gpu correctly and start working. So its just a software issue why the GPUs cant be flashed. Using free software like flashrom could solve that. Thats why i am asking here and described how you can get such a GPU card for free from those chinese scammers.
Hopefully i can motivate anyone to help reducing the electrical waste. The GPUs that are being shipped are with Nvidia GF116 chips. Those chips can be used with linux-libre + nouveau and you can run a fully free (as in freedom) software system.

you asked in the subject for help adding support? How can we help you?
If you just wanted to ask if somebody else is willing to do the work, you might have more luck asking Nouveau developers. They probably know the hardware best. Or, fund it...

You can get those GPUs for free thanks to ebay and paypal. You have
to write to
the chinase scammer over ebay and requrest a refund. They would refuse.
enable PayPal and DONT tell at any point about "fake". Just
tell them that the
gpu should for example support vulkan api but it does not and crash
when you try
to use vulkan. Then you get whole money back again (because card is
name it like you want).
Why missing flashrom support is so important: The gpus cant be used
propper way until a working bios is been flashed. Info: 128Bit in naming mean GTS450. 192bit in naming means 550TI.
Here some links to those fake gpus: https://www.ebay.com/itm/323491959810
Then all cheap-people can start buyng those, refunding those and using
to get a free GTS450/550TI card and thus ruin the profit making chinese
Can you provide any evidence that the above mentioned refunding works 100%? Any clue that you are not working for these scammers (even by accident, if it worked for you only by chance)?
