    Hi gomes.tisystem

    Thank you for your asking. Kindly provide the information below so that we can better assist you.

    1. Is your device JP SKU or WW SKU?

    2. Because the firmware version you upgrade is for JP (Japan) SKU, if your device is WW SKU, what is your upgrading procedure? I just put the JP-17.2018.2007.428 file into my root directory and nothing happened.

  • Hi gomes.tisystem

    Thank you for your reply. Because you mis-installed the JP firmware, there may have some unexpected behavior. Please provide me

    1. Your upgrading procedure of JP-17.2018.2007.428

    2. The screenshot of your firmware version

  • So friend the version is WW and not JP the update procedure was via memory card.

  • The update procedure was done following the instructions on the ASUS website following all the recommendations

  • The installed version is the one indicated by the website the problem is this bug with some Bluetooth headphones

  • I fixed the version, but the problem still remains with Bluetooth headsets that worked on version nine of Android.
