I had a look at the first post of this thread but it seems to suggest modified BIOS images can only be flashed if they are in a .rom format, is that correct? Otherwise, is the version of "afuefix64.efi" provided in that post a special version that works with unsigned BIOS images?
What command did you use? I use afuefix64 1201.cap /p /b /n /k /x /CLRCFG - it should work, you're not modding the rom, just updating the drivers.

Ryzen 9 3900X Current Bios - 2501

Yes, I followed the instructions in the first post of this thread:

Code:
afuefix64 name_bios.cap /P /B /N /K /X /CLRCFG

Spoiler!
Thank you .

I would say the title needs changing of this mod. It is CPU microcode update/mod, not AGESA.

Reous's AGESA list has X570 AGESA Combo-AM4 1.0.0.3, this contains CPU mCode that UBU v1.74.0.3 does not have in database. It states to report this and can extract mCode, I was able to add this mCode as well to UEFI 2304 AEGA 0.0.7.2a of C7H.

How did you convert back to a cap file? This isn't really a modded bios, just updated, so you should just need to covert back to .cap (if necessary) and flash away. I can't think what else could be causing the error. Can you use this method with an original bios file?

I'm using this same command but I'm receiving this following error 18 "secure flash rom verify fail". On the past worked fine. I have X370-F Strix.

My updated image is a .rom file, I was just quoting the parameters I used from the first post.

and don't boot anymore :/ there is any way to recover the bios?

for a .rom file you need to use afugan biosname.rom /gan
