Not sure if you have tried this method personally or not, but I haven't seen one person that has done the ROG connect method on Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3 boards successfully, do you?
That link you posted details the method used on the older Extreme boards.
Is the file named M4G.ROM ?
Btw there is no connect button to push, there is however an ROG switch, but as far as i know the Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3 does not have the ROG flash feature.
My method however, tested by me, works flawlessly to downgrade from a borked (ME version N/A or 0) 3xxx bios update.
I would also like to comment on the statement "dont touch it if it aint broke"
What happens when someone with the Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3 wants to upgrade to an ivy bridge processor and has a valid need to upgrade their bios to the 3xxx ?
RMA it? waste weeks + shipping costs...no, that is ridiculous, just use my method of flashing back to 0402, then use it to flash the 3xxx updated bios
This website is for the persuit of performance is it not?
Dont overclock! its not broke! but i wanna try... NO... dont touch it if it aint broke!
I prefer the statement " If you can't handle the heat, stay out of the kitchen"
