Just because a file is exactly 16MB does not mean the entire file gets flashed. EZFlashback scans the file and flashes the difference, think about this, otherwise it would be flashing over itself, which obviously wouldn't work out to well. Flashback is self-contained built in functionality to the board, that allows the entire chip to be erased, and then have the file that you downloaded completely flashed to the CMOS, where as the EZ Flash Method scans the file, and flashes the difference, this is why sometimes it says the file isn't correct when its a mod, it knows because it performs analysis on it, where as flashback just looks to see its the correct size, in the correct format, with the correct markers, and then flashes the entire file.
There is a MAJOR difference between the 2 methods, and this is why the people who make the mods tell you to do it that way. Until you have the knowledge to make your own mods and understand how the process works, I wouldn't presume to flash it differently because you assume that the methods are the same, they literally take the time to tell you to use a specific method for a reason. (This part was not addressed specifically to you
but to anyone who tries to flash these complicated mods any other way, without having the knowledge of how the process works.)
