could you help me understand what needs to be repaired here? which was ruined because of a software update?

looking at the price, i assume that it could be the price of the motherboard, well, replacing the motherboard and phone gets updated to this patch - the wifi will stop working again, right?

Correct its the motherboard. Wifi chip dying on the Rog5 is very common.

Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:

  1. Model Name: ASUS Rog Phone 5
  2. Firmware Version: Android 11 (18.0840.2106.86)
  3. Rooted or not: Not Rooted
  4. Frequency of Occurrence: All the time


So my wifi & wifi-hotspot suddenly stopped working. They won't turn on at all (the hotspot says Error when I try turning it on from this screen). I tried booting into safe mode (doesn't work there also). Tried restarting it several times. Not sure what to do anymore. I don't wanna lose data so if you know how to fix this, Let me know.
