    Exactly, hence why Asus needs to do this update. Developers gave up on Asus so it seems. Even tho Nokia stopped updating the Nokia 6.1 and OnePlus officially ended support for the OnePlus 6 recently there is still third party support for these phones I own. And by looking at the forums around here it seems I am not alone…

    A mod can close this thread as well. Sorry to see the response in my other thread. Bye Asus can't say you were not given a chance to keep a customer. All that was asked was to update the phone, and enable VoLTE one last time. You had updated the ROG 2 and up, but screwed those of us with the OG ROG. Sad.
  • ZT-a9606218
    If you say so. Over at XDA there is a hack, but complicated at best. And no custom ROMs on the net has VoLTE enabled for ROG phones. Hmm.
  • ZT-a9606218
    There are no Custom ROMs on the net for ROG phones that enable VoLTE. Sorry to tell ya. There is a hack over at XDA that will do it on most ROG phones, and it is complicated tho. Hence on works on T-Mobile not AT&T. Next.
  • ZT-a9606218
    Yes, one can do a hack to enable VoLTE. But it is not an easy process and not a guarantee to work read on at xda developer. Plus, custom ROMs don't enable VoLTE on a phone. Not that I have seen and I used to do custom ROMs in the past. It is better for the manufacturer to do this than for an average Joe with limited skill…

    What is interesting is that from some research that the ROG 2 had the same issues as the OG ROG hence Asus did enable VoLTE on T-Mobile with many folks complaining too. Guess I am not the only one here. Hmmm. "Only our North America Team can answer this question. All queries regarding FOTA for the U.S needs to be addressed…
  • ZT-a9606218
    Yes, I do remember the old days of MS phones. Had one for awhile when I was still in the military it was a handy device. Sad to see that platform collapse. :( All I am asking Asus to do is the honorable thing by updating this phone one last time, if considered, to at least Android 11 and enable VoLTE. Not much to ask here.…
  • ZT-a9606218
    What would make me and others happy would be for Asus to do the honorable thing and at least do one more update to bring the OG ROG up to Android 11 at least, and enable VoLTE. Not much to ask. Sorry that this old disabled veteran of 20 years in service will not go silently into the night. ;) And yes I did own a MS phone…

    At Danishblunt: There is a hack over at XDA for a T-Mobile system VoLTE enable, but that is complicated at best. And there are no Custom ROMs on the net for ROG phones that enable VoLTE. Sorry. Lastly, those that do not care about the OG ROG probably didn't spend over $900 on it most likely. Hmmm. Tried to quote your…
  • ZT-a9606218
    Makes perfect sense, and yes I do know something about Android development. Even if any developer Asus or not were to develop a custom ROM from the source code would be useless unless the firmware was also updated to enable VoLTE on it. In the U.S. all phones must have VoLTE enabled to work on AT&T or T-Mobile. The OG ROG…
  • ZT-a9606218
    Yeah, a custom Android 10, 11, 12 ROM on a bricked phone sounds interesting. If only the firmware was updated as well to enable VoLTE and/or VoWIFI would make the ROG work in the U.S. Hmmm.
  • ZT-a9606218
    Yes, a custom ROM could be done that much is evident. But, Asus must update the phone's firmware to support VoLTE and/or VoWIFI in the U.S. something one can not do with the source code apparently from a simple search there are some hacks to do this trick but it is only temporary in nature and flimsy at best. Being that…
  • ZT-a9606218
    It is great that the source code is available, but it doesn't relieve Asus from it's responsibility to support the ROG phone tho IMO. Plus, the source code doesn't have what is needed to turn on VoLTE or VoWIFI which is required in the U.S. for the ROG phone to worked under the new system requirements in 2022 on AT&T and…
  • ZT-a9606218
    I thought about it, but there doesn't seem to be any interest in other countries for the ROG phone. It seems that the newer ROG phones are fairing better in the resell market than the original ROG phone. Unless there is a "collector" of antique phones?!? Lol.
  • ZT-a9606218
    I guess we will have to agree to disagree. Yes, Nivdia is doing some dumb moves with the 3000 series cards that I will agree. Especially with the fact one can't get one presently with the supply shortage and scalpers everywhere. I am still running a 1660 TI card in my PC hence gave up hope of getting any 3000 series card.…

    While I agree with ya on other companies screwing up like Samsung, Apple, Tesla, etc. I don't buy products from those companies. So, my contention still holds true. And I do agree some companies may have better products than others, but I stay true to my convictions. I come from a different cut of cloth than you do…
  • ZT-a9606218
    Irregardless if the ROG phone was Asus's first gaming phone. Asus had abandoned it, period. Many who bought this phone at $900 plus were screwed. Asus handled this badly and like I said, "I will not buy Asus products as a result." Asus "may" make great hardware like motherboards, graphic cards, etc. like you state. Does…
  • ZT-a9606218
    Sadly, Asus had abandoned this poor phone. Hence why I will not buy any other Asus product like motherboards, graphic cards, phones, laptops, etc. Just wish Asus didn't treat their customers like ****. I spent good money and got burnt live and learn, I guess. Well, my OG phone will soon become a "brick" thanks to the 3G…
