This one has the same properties for X370 like older version,
but BIOS types changes with further BIOS updates and roll back from GSE to normal one was causing a bricks for those boards with regardless of version used.

From which BIOS version to which one you want to flash?

sorry my english isn't the best what does this exactly means . GSE to normal one was causing a brick for those boards with regardless of version . does it mean you can damage the board if you flash with this newer util or what does it mean?


x370 gameing pro

from actualy one to 7A33?? or so don't know the exactly bios name now. to patch it to agesa 1003ab . I make this for an longer time with that tool, but i can find only the bios not the tool . In old version you can read in the description . Not support for x470 or newer or so .

with newest GSE BIOSes, switching back to older one was causing a brick with older flasher. [i expect the same to be for newest too]

Don't think you can flash to a bios that works for new version yet retains older BIOS UI, I've tried this tool for and wouldn't post (b450 tomahawk) but managed to flashback and get working. I'm a sucker for punishment though so I might try the pre lite E7C02AMS.170 version. Pray for me

Ok thanks . If in the old version the flash works. It works in the new version of flasher too. Ahh ok so do you mean this. ? Then the usage of x370 doesn't work it this usage should be valid for old version of flasher tooo . ok thanks. because the usage in past was it doesn't work on x470 but on x370 or so . okk thanks for answer :)

Hi.. I have a B450M pro vdh board with Ryzen 7 2700x cpu. I tried to upgrade to the latest bios using m-flash utility from the previous bios. I had the latest bios file in a bootable usb which had win10 setup in it. I had no idea that the usb drive should be empty and fat32 formatted. The flashing process went fine but after the reboot my system does not start. Only the cpu led is constantly on and cpu whirls so fast. Some people suggest that the upgraded bios does not support my ryzen 2700x anymore.. I want to downgrade to the previous bios I had before.. just to confirm, will this utility work on my b450m pro vdh?

Thank you in advance..

open new own topic in the correct area, as this is not related to the tool.
