I'll take a guess and say you're from india, correct?
Look at my post on page 5 of August 16
It's been almost 2 months that we say that it is a hardware problem and still now users are waiting for a software update !!!!!
Here is Xiaomi's answer to the same problem
How did the wifi drivers or motherboard get corrupt just due to a "software update" seems illogical and talking off Xiaomi,Netizens speculate that the problem with the Xiaomi motherboard is not the problem of the WiFi module itself , because the WiFi module is integrated in the SOC, they're just providing motherboard issue for now as they haven't figured out a solution as Asus.
Edit : As per sources the persist partition could be destroyed not that sure as Asus hasn't confirmed anything
Tsk. Why asus not doing this. Tsk tsk tsk.
Don't give false hope bro
They won't ask you to replace your motherboard if they can fix it with software update
Motherboard is expensive and you can multiply it to how much they already spend their money to replace motherboard
let's assume a motherboard $100 then if 1000 user replace their motherboard then how much they must suffer?
They won't spend that much money to replace all of rog 5 user motherboard if they can fix it with software update which is much cheaper than replace it
I got call recording for reference
@krnapj could you please share your software version and please let us know any new problems after the motherboard change? I have waited long for software update. Could you please help me with this?
Share it so ASUS won't be able to avoid when you say it's software issue
Sure shot, will be sharing this
I think u missed a few lines in my comment. I hv refused to accept the phone because they put a dent at the bottom,now they will be replacing the screen or smthn,which will take another 10 days,after that only i ll b able to tell u anything
Hi @krnapj .
Please provide the details as soon as you receive your phone. That will be very helpful.
Motherboard replacement for immediate fix and software update(may or may not fix the problem, but we must prefer to wait till next update and if it doesn't fix this issue, only option left is to change the motherboard) for time consuming fix. The choice is yours, I'll prefer to wait for the next update as I use mobile data for now and the phone is under warranty costing me nothing,
Guys, I wanted to know how much "Screen On Time" you guys are getting before having the wifi issue I use to get 6hr in dynamic mode and 6:30hr in Ultra-durable mode at 60hz I don't think this is normal plz tell me is there a fix for this or replacing the motherboard will fix it?
Try to reset your phone
I did, I talked to the Asus care they told me to reset and run it in safe mode I did what ever I could but still the same problem how much screen on time is normal at 144hr without gaming?
I always use phone @144 Hz so basically there's a difference of about 20-40 minutes than normal hz
Anyone from Mumbai knows how much time it takes for the service center to get the phone fixed?
I have just today given it to the service center. They said they'll take 3-4 hours to run diagnostics and would then be able to tell me what the issue is and the solution along with the timelines.
For now, Asus has not done this, "Report: Xiaomi allegedly deleting post with complaints related to WiFi module"
Xiaomi did not hesitate and this for several months, fortunately for the users that their numbers allowed them to be heard.
This does not hold water, there is only one user who posted a screen which could indicate that his partition would be damaged and of course the boot does not go to the end, nothing to do with Wifi.
To date, there has been no official communication from Qualcomm, Xiaomi, Asus or even Samsung on the cause of this defect.
The known and certified facts are as follows,
There was an extremely important shortage of components due to Covid-19, (lack of personnel, plant closure, etc.) when new production lines were needed for the 888 5nm.
The first series of Snapdragon 888 made by Samsung and installed on the Xiaomi Mi 11 immediately presented an overheating issue and a critical security flaw.
Qualcomm called on TSMC to also produce the Snapdragon 888s in addition to Samsung, which had to review its defective 5nm manufacturing process.
Until this is resolved, the Snapdragon 870 (7nm) has been produced and Motorola, OnePlus, OPPO, iQOO, Xiaomi and a few others have released new smartphones with this chip.
My speculation is that Asus had the first deliveries of 888s which came from Samsung and that the affected smartphones were delivered mainly to India, in support many also complained of a significant heat which was difficult to bear, symptoms that we did not have. not in europe, but the rog 5s were available several months later.
This is only a hypothesis, as I do not understand the almost absence of cases on Tencent models which I believe were available very early on.
