Okay, updated to v3 and CPU CurrentPatchLevel now reports ...832 hence has been updated.

However, the initial double boot (after flash) persists. So far seems to work nicely :)

Can you summarize what are the advantages of the bios that you have designed, especially for FX processors and Windows 10?
Thanks

He just updated the bios components (as outlined in his post #1) with a more recent revision of those components - hence consider it a maintenance release which should have been done by Gigabyte.

Thanks AgentFXA.
A doubt:
The double boot (after flash) is every time you start the computer or just after flashing?

The name and date of Bios change in windows.
In UEFI Bios continues F4a and the same earlier date.
In regedit, I do not notice changes
Is there way to update AGESA?
In "UEFI bios updater" it is not possible

Data and version  it probably probaly in 2 modules(so need one more change in hex file to be in bios see)
You have latest microcde for fix fx i update this in v3 and v4 have this too but now i update  for other cpu as  phenom x6 and opteron so you cant see change  in regedit because you dont have phenom x6 or opteron.
Latest agesa is 1.5.0.6 you have 1.5.0.5 is imposiple us Uefi updater is need change hex value the same as microcode cpu, IN AMI Bios update Agesa is very hard , i update succesfull agesa to 1.5.0.6 in my ga990xa ud3 rev1.0, because i have this motherboard and i can look how it works. If find some more time i will try update this in your motherboard.
