How can i flash my BIOS to a newer version without a floppy disk? - Page 2

There's not need to bother that much.
As long as your bios hasn't gone fubar and that you can still access your OS, you only need to run the Asus Update program, then you get the rom file, and finally you make those two meet each other

Sure, but the OP asked about installing a newer version

But yeah, I've come to understand that downgrading could be a pain...

Well, as far as my english understanding goes, flashing to a *newer* version is called "upgrading".
Then, out of mere logic, flashing to an older version would be called "downgrading".
I took the topic as reference, which says "newer", so it's not a downgrade.

Why are we arguing over this btw ? :/

yup!, and as for the other problem with downgrading using the ezflash on the motherboard using some kind of storage device it will let you downgrade as well
