Default 580 Matrix zombie Controller Firmware

Hey I built a zombie out of a gtx 580 Matrix.
Yesterday everthing worked fine, but today there was no output voltage. I checked all voltages around the controller and found out that the VTT Pin (enable for controller with 3.3v) was shorted (i really dont know how) to one of the VID Pins.
I fixed it but still no output. I think it destroyed the controller.

So my idea was to swap the controller with one of a 580 lightning they should be the same.
But i think the firmware is different.
Does anyone knows how i can get the right firmware on the controller? Ive got a second full working 580 Matrix so ive got the firmware but dont know how to load it from one chip to the other.
Or maybe its not even possible to swap controller?

Can anyone help me?

Is the controller even same? If there are same phases and power components, you can interchange stuff usually. It was while till I saw 580 last time, so I don't know exact details on this to give more specific answer.

On the matrix is the ASP0907 and on the lightning the UP622AM. They have the same Pinout But the PCB and phases are very different.
I thought maybe its possible to patch the Firmware, or maybe the inner structure of the Lightning chip is to different so it wouldnt work.
I dont thint that it would work if i just solder the lightning controller on the Matrix,
but if i dont know how to go on ill try it.
