I would be interested in how you do this as I believe the ucode micro patches are compiled in source in inside
the EFI AMD AGESA OrochiPI I could not find tables in bios.

see my post here on the ver 3.0:

Not sure if I am missing anything, but my attempt to flash a 990fxa-ud3 V4.0 mothrboard with Qflash results in an invalid image warning.

I'll add that I did have the previous modded version, but hadn't tried it. I just updated using it - so far it seems to work OK. So I imagine there is some issue with the second version.

Thanks
Robert

Okay, flashed v2 and the CPU screenshot is here:
http://pasteboard.co/2laqqlLA.jpg

1 thing to note is the system is booting twice after bios update ( first boot screen twice) - not sure this means old bios has been restored? The patch level reported is 822 (not 832).

However, all seems to work nicely!

Yee i know , i will make one more update with update fully amd agesa, but all older module should be updated to see it you can enable raid mode in bios , (chose amd controller not marvell) restrat pc and go you should see version of bios  it should be 3.3.1540.19 .

Okay, I walked the plank and enabled RAID in bios (no choice AMD or Marvell)

Next boot I ended up with a blue screen (system HALT after raid made some initial checks) ... then Win7 asked to repair the boot disk - I hate RAID hence never used it!

 btw, there is no raid bios version info as far as I could see - no time to look, it was very quickly.
