Not really they've improved very much in the past 1 year including for rog phones
As of now Rog 3 has been getting monthly updates
And as an avg expect bimonthly updates
My 2.3yrs+ Zenfone 5z is on September patch too right now by the way :)
I tried your method and it seems to work all the way to the notification but when I tap it it says update failed. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. The version I'm on at the moment is 32 not 78 could that be the problem,do I need to go through all the updates until I'm up to speed do you think?
Well that's good news and yes come to think of it so is my 5z . I don't know what I'm doing wrong with the file but I will work it out. I refuse to let it get the best of me
The version is actually 17.0823.2007.32 not even 2009 ???? Go figure??? I may just have to wait until they push the updates through, but I will keep trying
You won't get updates as it's a tencent version with flashed global rom. There are warnings for those versions here on the forums about not buying those phones.
So can you download and update firmware version from the Asus website?
So how can I tell if it was flashed incorrectly. From The little research I've done as long as it has been flashed correctly I should get OTA updates . Any idea how to check
This phone has a WW Infront of the firmware version and from what I've read it should get updates. What is the ROG 3 called that aren't CN global flashed versions. I'm thinking of taking a hit ( financially) and selling it on eBay but I'm not sure what the phones that come in the odd shaped box are called
Hey the link I shared was to go from .78 to .98 (direct ota but you need to be on .78)
.32 which you're on is an older firmware
I'll link the full fw here to .98 (it should work imo)
Plus a new .99 update was released today I'll link that ota too just ping me here and see if this works
Download steps are same as I stated in one of my comments above
Plus judging from the comments I guess you have an tencent phone with WW rom right? See if this manual method through full firmware works
I don't know if I am doing something wrong or this phone has been stuffed when they flashed it . I have tried several times and everytime I get to the update notification after restarting it but it just says,,, update failed,,, it doesn't offer any reason why it just don't work. I am thinking of selling it while it's still retaltivly new and purchasing one that likes me ( I known this one must hate me after all the names I've called it today) . What are the rog 3 that comes in the odd shaped box called. I think at this stage I would rather pay the extra and get one that I know Will get regular updates. It's either that or the pixel 5 but I really hate Google so I would rather stick with Asus because I think they are s$&t hot phones. I mean apart from the update problem I love this phone and my old 5;z was one of the best phones I have ever hade. What to do eh at 60 something I'm to old to be spending hours and hours trying to get this thing to play nice . Then there's the war office she's ready to shoot me in a place I can't mention on this forum
To my knowledge that isn't the case.
With gorilla glass 6, u don't need to add any protective glass films. As per their promotion, it's said that it will be able to hold impacts up to 1.5 m. wkwk
Did the full firmware work?
By the way join this rog community on telegram: @ROGPhoneSeriesDiscussion
People here can be more helpful :)
People here will be more helpful :)
No it didn't work. I don't think I'm doing anything wrong because after the restart it says that there's an update detected but when I tap on it it tries for a moment then simply says update failed
Thanks for all your help. I've contacted Kogan and explained that it won't update either by OTA or manually so they have offered to replace it with another one. Only problem There is if they send me another one that can't be updated I think I'll screen but I have to try and if it is the same then I'll just give it to one of my kids. I really hope that is not the case because I already spoil them rotten. Life goes On eh 🤣
Uh well so full firmware to the latest is not working too
Give this a last shot
.32 to .47 (.47 was the next firmware released after .32) if this works try to go manually from one firmware to the other in the order they were released(I'll share the links)
You'll need to rename this file tho
Steps are basically the same:
Download the file
Paste it to internal storage directory (not in any subfolder)
Rename the downloaded file to this :
Restart and see if it works
Just popping in to clear a few things up:
