I Bought Asus Rog 5 Recently and as you all know that this Phone is not supported 90 FPS in Pubg Mobile yet, So i was looking on Asus Official Website for updates to keep my phone up to date. I got shock that Asus put one APK file there and if someone used it it will unlock the phone bootloader. That's what happened with me and there is no way to lock the bootloader again.

Now my question it that why ASUS put that file there which can cause customer devices security and also warranty.?

Why Asus is not providing one another file which can be used to lock the bootloader again?

is this was Asus plan to unlock customer phones bootloaders so they can not claim warranty?

I hope one day i will get the answers of my question else i will move to Realm or One+ phone.
