    Nope, I am guessing the videos that you are watching are videos from people who might have gotten their hands on the Tencent edition and want to have a global ROM on it.

    You should be able to get the updates normally

  • Here i receive ota normally

  • i also tencent rog phone 2 user have global rom but old version ?.. i dont know how to get it to the latest global rom? can it auto update soon ????helpp.. this phone is great but the system make it manually update..help me

  • There are alot of info out there for updating you GLOBAL ROG PHONE!! google how to update.

  • It actually not that hard to update it manually once you know how

    The way i use is checking first asus website for updates at

    And then check on

    Steps of Update: 

    1. Check software version of your device**

    2. Download device software and Update SOP (From “Manual” Item)

    3. Only apply to same SKU update, Example: WW->WW, CN->CN, TW->TW.

    4. Software update cannot transfer the software SKU and downgrade the software version.

    5. Wrong SKU may cause update failure, please update the same SKU version only. 

    **How to know the device model? 

    Path: Settings->About-> Model number

    Example: ASUS PadFone2 

    **How to know the device software version? 

    Path: Settings->About-> software information->Build number

    Example: CHT_PadFone2-user-

    **System upgrade may cause part of data missing, please buckup your important data before system upgrading.

    Once you find out which sku your phone has, download it latest update if there is one and put it on the internal storage then restart your phone if needed after disconnecting the usb a notification should popup about new update

  • @faisal.f.s.b.kw already linked the right download page, and the instructions for a manual install are here. https://www.asus.com/us/support/FAQ/1009748/

    Because you have a Tencent phone, it may never correctly update automatically.
