    Updates are incremental, follow the shift order and you'll be fine. in your case, the .200

    For Android 12, the same, you must be at least .226

  • @Madozz Please bear in mind that the Tencent version of ROG Phone 5 running global firmware is not a supported configuration, hence the lack of automatic firmware updates (among other tings). If you run into any issues with your device, please contact your reseller, as this is not a configuration that we sell.
