Unless your board has a dual bios switch, or some kind of fallback system, no there is not. Call Asrock and see what they'll do for you!

yea. you have to short circuit the board.
if you have bootable usb stick or dvd you could try to flash again.

No other way aside from pulling the bios chip from the board. You can still use that same bios if you have an EPROM programmer.

If he bricked the bios via updating, I don't think resetting CMOS will do anything, considering there wouldn't be any working CMOS to reset o.O

You can try to clear the CMOS and then use a USB flash drive in an attempt to save the system by doing the update. What exactly where you doing that caused the BIOS update to fail in the first place?

yea there is a trick. it completely dump the memory of the mobo, not only cmos. trying to find it back. I've seen it in the voltage mod forum I think. you have to power off and connect two pins on the board. If you want to RMA it why not try this...
maybe you should post this on the voltage mod forum. they know that stuff plus I can't seem to find it.

asus has the USb stick method for recovery, but you need something called EC to be able to do that. IDk if ASRock has EC built into their boards, as it is kind of an extra feature that supports stuff like iROG, it is part of that TPU chip you see on most new high-end asus boards. EC can force the system to do things, like boot when there is a cold bug, and BLCk skew, and iROG. Check to see if ASRock boar dyou have has some type of flash BIOS with USb stick while system is off thing.

Not for anything, but isn't the real function of a dual bios motherboard helps you recover if something like this happen?
