Hi everybody, does anybody have any experience with crossflashing from one board revision to another? In my case its about the ASUS A320M-C which I would like to crossflash with the latest BIOS of its sister board A320M-C REV 2.0. These two boards seem to be quite the same. What would be the odds of a crossflash beeing successfull?

Same PWM Controller,
Same Phases & Gates
Same Phase Layout and Memory VRM
Different FlashRom yet same 16MB size
Same Board layout, except that Rev.02 misses two Sata Ports only
Same NIC & Audio Chip

Shouldn't create any issue
Rev.02 has also one more fan header, but i see no issues

Yes aside all, there is no guarantee and within your own danger to do so
If you brick your board, it's your work to buy an SPI flasher and get it up running :)

Hey Veii, thx for your quick and informative reply!
I am a bit confused because you compared the A320M-C Rev 2.0 with the Prime A320-A. Is that board identical to the A320M-C?

But that comparison looks awesome! Where did you get that from?

All the best

Thought issue, thought they are identical as i compared the boards not the name
New revision shouldn't cause issues, at worse something was HW side fixed that caused issues
Sadly old revision is not to be found ~ soo i guess it's just identical
(except a patch on X port or bigger ROM, as it usually was the case // fix on usb-c and so on)

From this docs:
============================================
Here is AMIBCP v5.02.0034 [PASS: OCN2022]
It does sign edited bioses to some extend (need to test vendor locks)
But still needs a split in half to be edited
Rectangle Font Pattern Parallel Technology

I suggest on generally any Bios, to check wherever SETUP_VAR locks exist
Rectangle Azure Line Font Parallel

And for 1206A/B onwards, to force enable Vermeer(-X) overclocking support
Rectangle Font Parallel Pattern Circle

Easier non bios-modding ways, to follow

But as always,
I am not the owner of the product, and sharing is done for general education purposes to bring development further
Credits do not belong to me for version 0034, but it is a re'upload to support international userbase
The same goes for bios mods, any user-experiment you try falls under own blame & own assurance
:)
