Please please please🙏🙏🙏
Fixed black crush issue?
Apologies for my lack of knowledge on this but may i know if you can still receive FOTA updates with an unlocked bootloader and with a custom kernel in place?
will you make a public version of the fix?, or share it with Freak07 so he can maybe use it in his kernel?
Orginal poster, 100 marks for your curiosity and effort.
A simple kernel tweak fixed this issue damn.
This simply implies that Asus Devs weren't resolving this issue on purpose. And They were focusing on Rog phone 5.
Now it is clear that Asus has duped everyone with Rog phone 3.
This is a clear case of cheating.
I will officially log a complaint against Asus India for duping us.
I wouldnt call it "simple".
Also as already mentioning before, I don't think anyone duped anybody. It's just that the devteam have their hands very full. I'm quite hopeful that an official fix will come out at some point. The main reason the thread exists is simply to show users that their devices arent broken, It's just software issue if you will :)
Also final calibration and update vs the Oneplus 8 Pro:
Before: 25% brightness, rog3 being so dark you cannot see anything anymore. Hard to use on lower brightness levels.
After: 25%, Yes even at very low brightness you can still see everything just fine, altho there is a red tint. Yes the phone is even darker than the Oneplus 8 pro and still retains all the detail.
And for the last time with color banding:
Rog 3 when you run the trailer and it starts to "darken" (26 seconds into trailer) shows perfect example of which greyscale on the stock kernel causes the insane pixelation and image turns into a mess.
Perfect image, real blacks, no pixalations.
So guys, what is the moral of the story?
Your phones have a high quality display as ASUS was promising you, your displays arent broken and it is fixable without having to replace it! Be patience as ASUS will eventually fix it, you haven't been duped or sold anything cheap. I hope I could soothe some people's anger who thought they got a broken product with a broken screen :)
At last,red tint and color banding will be a thing of the past,and if asus manages to pull this off,it will probably be the first phone that manages to do so with a high end display,can't wait for the official fix
The red tint still exists on very very low brightness. This is just how OLED's operate I think.
@Danishblunt nice work! Can you share how did you fix it so I can try it on my phone too! Was just so upset with the screen wanting to sell it but now you have me hope XD 🥺
Bro highly appreciate your efforts...
Meanwhile I'm rooted, and would love to have hands on this Kernel.
Please share and guide, if possible make it on XDA.
Cheers for your future projects!
Question for a noob here, one you rooted your phone, can you root back the official kernel for your warranty? Can the manufacture tell the difference?
Bro pls guide for installing it.
Highly appreciate your efforts...
No, unlocking the bootloader will blacklist your device and void your warranty!
@pradhyumna pm sent :)
Hats off to you bro...
Its working great on latest Firmware WW_17.0823.2102.143
I've tried my device on all FPS , Keeping my device on 144hz giving me awesome display output. Videos are not getting washed out. Black crush also unseen.
Also observed the Brightness level on 0% is deemed than stock.
Keep the great work.
All the best for your future android developments.
Now I also wanna try this 😥😭. Why can't the developers use the same method to eliminate the black crush @Gustav_ASUS @Christine @Titan_ASUS ?
Let this be implemented in A11 beta as well so that we can give the feedback on display!
(fingers crossed 🤞🤞)
Thanks for testing it on the newest update :)
Yeah i lowered the minimum brightness as I felt the stock min brightness was still a little to bright :)
whats the cons after rooting my device? sorry for my noob question.
I would say there are 2 cons I can think off:
1.) The device will lose warranty. Now for all who purchased a tencent phone won't care as they don't have warranty regardless but global version buyers might want to keep the warranty.
2.) If someone gets physical access to your device they could technically get into your system easier.
Please keep in mind my kernel has some changes to the GPU and optimizes voltagecurves, this means more than likely only snapdragon 865+ models will be able to run the kernel without issues and crashes. As I did undervolt it quite drasticly.
You lose warranty and fota ability
Oh yeah, forgot about the fota thing.
My device is tencent flashed to global rom out of the box. So warranty is not a thing for me now. How about gane genie and air triggers?
Can you please DM me the steps? I will root my device and try your kernel. Thank you so much.
