marksbrasIt should, go to the firmware download section, klick on the settings wheel, and change "download wifi/mobile network" to "do not allow"
I paused it but it will not allow me to make any changes to include turning off auto update
DanishbluntIt has greyed out the option so I am retrying but turning off wifi before the reboot hoping it will allow me to do it before allowing the phone to connect to anything. By turning wifi off and then bypassing most of the setup it did allow me to get to the system update area and turn off auto update so at least it is now on Android 11 and I can get it setup to see if functionality is back. I can say that volte is back and it looks like I am back to 5g so it now appears promising

DanishbluntThanks for the link. I was able to downgrade to Android 11 and now have VoLTE and calling capabilities again.
Are you ok? The firmware to downgrade is public since a long time, there is no need to request any files or whatnot.
@GT500 its most likely the latter, hotfix should be out relatively soon. As you have wonderfully pointed out, in some countries VoLTE is needed to be able to call anyone which means ASUS is most likely going to hurry getting it out.
@ClownVixen No worries, support page is still there, google has to adjust to the new url, it happens every now and then when ASUS fiddles on their site.
DanishbluntYou may want to familiarize yourself with how Google does security patches for Android. I'll go ahead and explain it briefly below, but this is sort of hijacking the thread since it isn't about device security.
@GT500 Oh and as for security fix, honestly its irrelevant because ASUS actually is good when it comes to security fixes. It's very misleading to take the month of a security update as how well a company applies security fixes to their phones, ASUS does bigger batches than other companies and its open source, if you want to have all the security updates regularly you can use kirisakura kernel since he updates it frequently, hell because of people like kirisakura the phone is more secure than many other phones on the market. Hell its 2022 and the Rog2 still gets updated. Compare that to other phones such as the Razer phone 2 (stuck on A9), Black shark 2 (a10) and Nubia RM 3 (A10) youll find that ASUS actually provides excellent support especially for a gaming phone. The Rog2 would stay secure until its hardware is dead, software wise it won't be dead anytime soon. Also another sidenote, the software and firmware update quality on the Rog phones are is so much better than even mainstream phones like Oneplus.
Is ASUS perfect? Hell no
Is ASUS absolute dogsht? Hell no.
I'd say they are upper mid tier, not as good as the top, but still notably better than the average phone manufacturer. If they would promise as much OS update as Samsung they would be top tier, the only thing holding ASUS back is being limited to "only" 2OS upgrades.
