    Bios downgrading never causes problems on the Ranger.

    There was one individual in my thread who had issues but thanks to a misclick I was banned and that thread deleted.

    for the most part it's easy as following instructions and getting the files, they can be found around, if not on TechInferno from some great guys over there who helped out with all the know how to begin with.
    But I thought you had to go back to A05 or something when downgrading from the latest bioses on like the AW17 (I'm assuming thats the laptop)...
    course been ages since I had to touch my laptop. I actually just use the regular bios myself, not sure anymore what the unlocked ones add really. I got everything I need.

    I didn't even know it had a A05. But yeah, this is the AW 17 mid-2014 model. Being honest, Ive tried everything to flash it, same error. Its not thag a big a deal imo

    Also if you have the 4930mx you disable c states and energy efficient p states to hold higher overclocks.
