I mean **Asus didn't mention that EZFlash will not work(downgrade) if you update to Newest 2305 Bios**

Hello Xtracker. Yes, as you mention, Asus didn't mention that EZ Flash doesn't allow a BIOS rollback after upgrading to 2305, nor did it mention that EZ Flash does allow you to rollback.
In my particular case, I already tried to rollback to a version prior to 2305 from EZ Flash and I couldn't do it.

As others mention, I also cannot downgrade from 2305.  I have a ticket/case in with Asus but I'm still waiting on an answer.  I want to downgrade because my computer is now unstable and getting BSODs in Windows and having stability issues in Linux as well (I dual boot and have separate hard drives).  Was not happening before the BIOS update.

Motherboard: Asus Z690 Hero DDR5.

Yes, same here. I hope that when you get an answer from Asus you could share what they have told you, hoping it is a possible solution to this situation.

For some reason after the update I always get POST code 11 after any restart. The workaround is to hold power button and turn it on again. Not sure what is triggering it, but it's a nuisance to do it everytime

Did you try backing up your BIOS settings, clearing the CMOS and then seeing if it behaves better now?  If not, you can restore the CMOS config from your backup.

Hey guys, so I called ASUS support and explained the issue I was having also that many others where as well, and I am not sure how up to speed support is cause they wanted me to send the board in for RMA, I explained that if I did the RMA and received a new board the the second I updated to 2305 it would be another RMA return, so I guess I am stuck waiting for a bios update because this issue is quite a stain on ASUS if you ask me.
