About the firmware application of ConnectX-4 lx

I purchased because ConnectX-4 lx (MCX 4131A-GCAT) was cheap on eBay, but the Firmware seems to be broken, and DevID / VenID was PCI \ VEN_15B3 & DEV_020B.

This seems to mean Flash Recovery.

I tried to deal with the following site referring to it, but it does not work well.

If this process fails, computer may remain in an inoperable state.
