Zenfone 8 Hard-Bricked after firmware update
Hey Asus (community)!
This morning my unrooted Asus Zenfone 8 (8GB 128GB) black model bricked itself, two days after the last firmware update. I think this could be part of the reason, so I just want to send out a kind warning to anyone out there to wait with installing this upgrade. I don't recall the name and time of the update, I cannot check because, well, my phone literally is hard-bricked.
Happened between 6AM and 7AM while I was not near my phone. It won't turn on. It won't respond to charging, power button (in all combination with volume buttons up to 1 minute).
I still really enjoyed the phone for the past 2,5 months, I think about returning it and buying a new one. All pictures and videos are lost, but I can cope with losing that.
What else could it be, I wonder?
