  1. Model Name: Rog 2, 8gb 128gb Indian unit (WW)
  2. Firmware Version: 2009.47
  3. Rooted or not: not
  4. Frequency of Occurrence: everytime
  5. APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app): official unlock tool

After using latest bootloader unlock tool, widewine L1 support is not retained, and it is downgraded to L3. Resulting users are unable to stream HD content via ott apps like Netflix and Amazon prime video.

The same is not the case with other asus devices, Both asus Zenfone 5z and 6z are able to retain Widewine L1 after bootloader unlock using official tool.

Now even Rog 3 is retaining the L1, also this should not be hardware dependency. Many of the Rog 2 users are now at the end of their 1 year warranty period and are looking forward to unlock the bootloader, but this basic issue is deal breaker. so please patch this anomaly as soon as possible.
