Yeah, I remember seeing this on asus.com when I was looking for the BiosRenamer tool after seeing people post on reddit that renaming the bios file would allow downgrades. A simple renaming in windows did not do it for me. Couldn't find that link at first, but here it is: https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1038568
They recommend FAT16 or FAT32. The interesting thing is that I did not have to rename. Just the FAT32 format of the drive did it. That is what the youtube dude is pointing out.
The bios renamer and renaming is not for a straight flash which is what the video you linked is talking about. The renamer is used during bios flashback which NOT all boards will have that capability such as your TUF Gaming. Bios flashback is pretty useful for bios bricked machines or incompatible bios versions where it allows you to flash the bios even with those conditions.
