I have got B450 Pro4 with Ryzen 2600, you reckon it's a good idea to jump from 4.10 to 4.80? I noticed too 4.80 has no warning for pinnacle, while 4.10 had.

I have no issues with 4.10 other than that weird flashing (which is only during POST, rest is all normal): https://streamable.com/vjps8y

So you flashed 4.10 with the warning, but now you're worried about 4.80 which doesn't have it? Personally would update it.
That flashing looks weird, and also, I can see that you didn't make a EUFI windows installation, you did a legacy installation.

I've noticed that the most recent BIOS (4.80) doesn't have the yellow warning, saying not recommended for Pinnacle, Raven or Summit Ridge. Does this mean that the update is meant for all£ Is it fine for 2600X£

There is a reason for many users to be looking to update BIOSes for AMD systems, Resizable BAR /SAM.

I keep checking every couple of days because while I can update to 3.60 for my x570 Steel Legend, I am afraid that this might make my USB things worse since it does not include the USB fix.

It's kind of jarring to have the warning pop up that says don't update if your system is behaving normal when there is also a significant feature update in the latest BIOS. At least my GPU is ready.    

ASROCK released some 1.2.0.1 Patch A updates last week so I am expecting them to roll out soon for my board.

Speaking of BIOS update-related questions... I'm hoping ASRock can answer these, which they haven't via email or forum yet. I doubt waiting on phone support will yield more info:

Just an update of Bios info from my last post. Decided to try 3.90 for my Fatal1ty B450 Gaming K4 board. Still have the beef about not recommended for the Pinnacle, Raven or Summit Ridge CPU warning in the bios downloads and listing the Pinnacle 1600AF in the supported list as since bios 3.90 - It was working for me shipped with the 3.50 bios. I'm not worried about 4.10 because that's a mem and fan control update (and other posters here are reporting problems), and the 4.20 bios Agesa Combo is specifically for gen 3 ryzen. I am using b-die mem that run at 3200 like they are supposed to. With the 3.90 bios everything is working better. With 3.50 the processor didn't boost correctly - it stayed at whatever you had set as min processor speed in power management (win7x64). Now it goes to from min to 3600 with no OC parameters set.(like it's supposed to)

Ok. Guess I wont update my Bios. But still there are websites that have shown major speed increases with AMD AGESA version that comes with the bios update. Still I purchased a Fatal1ty B450 Gaming K4 and it came with 3.50 bios I am running Windows 7 with a Ryzen 5 1600 AF which is a Pinnacle Ridge CPU. The bios page says

and the CPU support page says

So what to do. Its running on the 3.50, but I would like the speed increase from the newer AMD AGESA version. It says the bios can't be changed back to a lower version...but I've done it before on non UEFI boards (also ASRock) that said you couldn't install a previous version by only changing the file name of the bios to a later version and it worked.

I know what it says, but can this board be reverted to a previous version if an update mucks it up£
I've messaged tech support twice, and didn't even get the automated email confirming it was received.
