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."?

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 :|

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.

grrr..I'm not making the post office today.
OK(jaggerwild from TPU)
I'm totally lost as to what i need to do to make it SEE the old bios(basically remove CAPS)or reverse the BUPDATER so I can use an older bios. I got this Intel ES chip I need to verify it is working or not.

Probably need a known supported working chip.

Herp derp post is what I would expect from someone from LA.

Seriously? "Got any links?"


Here's a link:

If you don't want to change, don't. This is for people that updated their BIOS and had things they didn't like/options that broke as a result of the update.

The method works on quite a few different platforms, but a different AFUDOS is needed specific to platform.
