[SOLVED] I bricked my RX 560, need help identifying vbios chip on my model

I flash the wrong bios to my GIGABYTE RX 560 GAMING OC 4 GB, and now it won't let me even boot if the card is in.
So, after some googling, I see that I need to make some kind of jumper workaround to be able to reflash the original bios. My problem is that I can't find anywhere some picture or video that shows exactly what chip is and what pins do I need to do the work on.

I add a couple of pics I take, so any merciful soul can point out the correct chip and pins.

Thanks ind advance, and sorry for my bad English, I'm from Cuba.

The vBIOS chip will usually be an SO8 package with a model number that starts with 25 excluding vendor identification prefixes. You will likely need good lighting and a magnifying glass to read them. It may be located under the heatsink. Since the SPI-flash chip operates at relatively low frequencies and isn't performance-critical, it will often be located in "wasted" board space such as the corner of a row of DRAM chips and column of VRM stages.
