Woke up to my Zenfone 8 being completely dead and unresponsive. I first thought it was a problem with the battery or something, but seeing the threads that keep piling up here, i suspect my phone did an update during the nigt and bricked itself.
@Drac I'm sorry to hear that. Please contact a local ASUS service center in your country of residence. I'll also send you a PM here on Zentalk with some follow-up questions about your device, check your inbox!
You probably got the Ramdump message when you was asleep, then ran out of battery.
@Drac Unfortunately you are another casualty buddy.
You can go to this thread and join the growing number of pissed off customers having the same problem
I ended up going to the retailer, but they told me that they could not guarantee the data i had on it. That data was worth more to me than the phone so i hope to god that you didnt destroy that to.
I don't want to scare you but 99,9% you lost all your data. I had black screen like you - motherboard with memory to be replaced.
Say goodbye to your files and probably 2 weeks or more with out a phone. Welcome to ASUS EXPERIENCE. hahaha
I figured, guess i should curb my expectations going forward. Sucks that Asus has destroyed hundreds of dollars worth of my property pluss my phone, and i have zero rights for any form of payback.
