What allocation size do you suggest I select when formatting my drive to Fat32 or does it matter? :think:

NVM. Got it figured out.

Edit:

Well... I've managed to flash back to 7A32v1H from 7A32v1J (x370 gaming pro carbon)

Set everything exactly as it was before & no longer experiencing lockups, crashes, or any other issues.  

That flash tool is absolute GOLD.

Thank you so much for the great walkthrough. :hat tip:

make sure to boot from USB key's UEFI,
not from build-in UEFI-Shell from BIOS

It looked exactly like in your first post in this topic . Efi and my bios file in the root of usb. I created bootable pendrive with liveupdate software it downloaded something like ms-7996.exe and it created flash usb. Do you think your tool is better than liveupdate they both use aefudos or something. If you think your tool is better than USB created with liveupdate software i wilk reflash using your methods sińce last time i had trouble booting front USB on my MSI h110m-pro d

This tool saved me a lot of hassle.

I upgraded my gaming b450m from bios 14 to 16 and lost sound in windows and linux.

Bios 16 doesn't allow downgrading bios. 

I tried Flash BIOS Button with 5 usb keys to no avail.

Thank you guys from this utility!

I am using a B450 Gaming Pro AC with 7B85v14 and i decided to update to 7B85v16 since its the latest BIOS and it has a big difference in size (over 200Kb so i guess it changed a lot). From the very first moment i updated i had various issues such as, CPU Fan on boot took long to start, if i left the PC on Idle (without Sleeping) the PC would cease to work (would have power but no signal on monitor).

Huge problems and no way to downgrade via M-Flash. I did everything the guide said and it worked ! I'm back to 7B85v14 which works flawlessy and it has Offset too !

I recommend this tool, thanks OP.

Is this tool better than m-flash for lets say msi h110m pro-d ? Also how to make sure my usb is 100% correctly prepared ( basic format fat32 is enough or hq usb tool/diskpart is a way to make it 100% sure ? )

Thanks so much.

I haved updated BIOS of Bazooka b450m on 7A38vH3 to 7A38vH6, and as result it broken all audio connections of the GPU rx-580 (No HDMI audio), but curiosly, IGPU RYZEN 2400g (HDMI audio) work well. No matters what driver or configuration I be tried. Then I found this post whit the solution. After looking everyting on google. Nothing works, only this post had the solution.

Now I'm back on BIOS version 7A38vH3 and everyting is fixed. I am very grateful.

I already did. Just checking if there is another way since RMA would cost me some cash for travel expenses and a temporary mobo. ( Only been using this mobo about 2 weeks, im broke af haha). Thanks for the reply. Appreciate it

A word of warning to all....

DO NOT flash the AM4 BIOS update for 3rd gen Ryzen CPUs or later using this tool. I was on 7B07v3E on A320M Pro-VH Plus and I used to do every BIOS update using this tool (since I trusted it more than M-flash) since Summit Ridge updates, never gone wrong but this time when I updated to 7B07v3G1(Beta version for Ryzen 3000 support) this tool showed a successful flash but my PC wouldn't POST at all.

Now I know Athlon support has been removed from the updated BIOS but I was on Summit Ridge (Ryzen 3 1200) and I'm planning to upgrade to Ryzen 3rd gen soon.

In any case, this post saved my PC's life...
https://service.msicomputer.com/msi_user/support/techfaqdetail.aspx?formid=3046

Credit where credit is due. Thanks! I reflashed the same latest 7B07v3G1(Beta version) using this method and it worked and POSTed successfully.

So if someone wants to try to flash the latest update using this tool, please don't and save the hassle and a possible BIOS brick.

I don't have such board to perform this test to check for this issue.
Maybe you can try again (assume if recovery if needs is not the issue)
to see if can be duplicated or it was some kind of accident.

Made an account just to post this. This tool was a life saver for me when I ran into the issues others have run into in this thread. B450M GAMING PLUS with a Ryzen 2200g and RX 570. I had worked with another B450M Gaming board I recently purchased to build a computer for a family member, it came with bios v60 and I didn't have any apparent problems because this build only used a 2200g with no GPU, hdmi audio worked fine. So I figured updating the bios in my old build would be safe. One bios update later and I no longer have any audio output from my RX 570. I reinstalled drivers, rolled back my computer with system restore, searched endlessly on Google for solutions with no luck. Then finally stumbled across this thread and another thread with the exact same issue I had. I rolled back my bios to v40 and audio was back. I also went ahead and downgraded the new board I received that came preloaded with bios v60 to v40 since I didn't want to leave my family member with a computer that may experience issues in the future due to unstable bios.

So thank you for creating this tool that allows for bios downgrade since it is not possible to downgrade via official methods currently. And to anyone who reads this, avoid the latest B450M bios like the plague until Ryzen 3000 series cpus come out and MSI puts out a stable bios for use with them.

I just created an account today and posted an issue with HDMI Audio not working on my VC. Good thing I read this post, downgraded my B450M Mortar to v14 (came with v16 and upgraded to v18) and voila, HDMI audio from my VC is now working again!

Thank you very much for this tool!

I wanted to Thank you Svet very much! You saved many nerves to lot of people! Tool is great! I managed to downgrade my A.90 BIOS on X470 Gaming Plus MB to A.60.  And I also created a video tutorial of how to do it. And put the link to this topic in video's description. Here is the link to video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tR38bPGN-0&t=8s if somebody is interesting in. Video has two languages text explanation Russian and English. You can attach the link to your top message in this discussion theme. :) Thank you Again !

Hello Svet! could you write a V9 release changes compared to V6 ?

And another question: one guy from YT flashed his MSI b350m pro-vdh board and seems to bricked it. Should Flash tool work for that board or not ? Thanks in advance :)

it should
if he flashed to 3xx compatible BIOS, some of older CPUs are no longer supported by this new BIOS

My motherboard: B450 Tomahawk and My CPU: Amd Ryzen 5 2600X
I am updated BIOS: 7C02v17 - 7C02v19 last week. I'm confused
I am Revent to BIOS 7C02v17 or 7C02v15 this tool?(Which tool: Flash tool 1.09 or 1.06)
which usb connection? Usb 2.0 or 3.0 connections? 
Main Question: Let's say, the bios crashes when changing the bios version. So: Is Bios recovering with BIOS Flashback or other method?(Just in Case)

its up to you to which bios you want to re-flash
if you flashing back, best reflash to your prevision 1.7
(if you haven't used 1.5 before, so you don't know how it will works, will your CPU will be supported there and so on,
to avoid unwanted surprises, stick to BIOS that worked fine for you)


Quote
(Which tool: Flash tool 1.09 or 1.06)

always use the one from the 1st post
(in the 1st post there is always only one version at the time)

Quote
which usb connection? Usb 2.0 or 3.0 connections?

wont matter, but generally USB 2.0 ports are more stable and reliable

yes it should able to recover with flashback in a case of accident

yes, the warranty will be fine,
if a accident happens would be just a bad flash which can't affect the warranty
