This BIOS is like a bad trojan that I would like banished from my comp and replaced with an older, nice one.Step-by-step instructions?
I have AFUDOS on bootable usb..AFUwingui..and BIOSes.Nm redface.gif it started scrolling all crazy but I just had to type "y" redface.gif
Might as well post Instructions.

AFUDOS AFUDOS.zip 149k .zip file
bootable win98-style USB http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/46707-ms-dos-bootable-flash-drive-create.html
BUPdater BUPDATER .zip 37k .zip file

Ok..so..You need those 3 things and 2 BIOSes
1 oldest one..and the one you really want

Get the 2 BIOSes (or however many..hehe) and put them on the USB as well.
Boot from your USB
Type: AFUDOS (oldest.rom) /p /b /n
It'll go all "Warning,We don't recommend" blahblah
hit "F" for Force and then "Y" ..don't worry about the crazy scrolling.
Let it do its thing.
Then you can update to a newer either with bupdater (buggy,IMO) Command = : "Bupdater /i(yourbios.ROM)" ..no space after i.
or ezflash..or ai suite
reset cmos
Profit!
If you pass a certain later BIOS though..you'll have to do it all over again.

I am stuck on 3207 and having the modded 6950 issue. I might attempt your method but have some questions before I do:

People complained that certain settings like the AI tuner and CPU ratio, and DRAM are gone after downgrading (they used a different method I believe) is this the case for you as well?

Have experienced any other issues?

What do you mean by "If you pass a certain later BIOS though..you'll have to do it all over again."? biggrin.gif

If this method does work without issues I think you should share it a bit more, I have looked around other places on how to downgrade and most of them have serious side effects :|

The method works fine..Asus..just..won't let you roll back BIOSes :kookoo.gif:
Oh..and when you want to update..you can just use ezflash or the Windows thing..BUPdater isn't necessary.

I can confirm this method works 100% on a Asus P8P67 EVO MOBO Rev B3. I just downgraded from P8P67-EVO-ASUS-3207 to P8P67-EVO-ASUS-1850 and haven't experienced any issues. This thread needs to be stickied!! Thanks alot Schmuckley, firmware 3207 was f horrid.
