    Post Question Is it possible to save the unlock key after unlocking the bootloader?

    @twistedumbrella Can we use QFIL tool (https://qfiltool.com/), for example, to backup/restore partitions? Also, do we have the firehouse programmer for the ASUS ROG Phone 5S?

    Post Question Is it possible to save the unlock key after unlocking the bootloader?

    @twistedumbrella I haven't done EDL back/restore before, but I did Clonezilla backup/restore on PC/laptop. Let's say I bought 512GB version ASUS ROG Phone 5S, wouldn't EDL backup have to backup the entire 512GB because it is encrypted (encrypted partitions are just one complete block, even if it...

    Post How To Guide WARNING: Read BEFORE Locking Bootloader

    Some people have reported that you can't unlock the bootloader again after relocking, using the official "Unlock Device App", but I suspect it is an OS mismatch. This issue has only been observed on Tencent (CN) version with global ROM. Have anyone been able to unlock->relock->unlock on the same...

    Post How To Guide WARNING: Read BEFORE Locking Bootloader

    @chairman011 what variant of the phone it is (e.g. CN or WW or US, ...etc.)? Also, when they returned it to you and you were able to unlock it again, was it on the original firmware (or any version in its lineage (i.e. not a ROM that's not original))?

    Thank you for your reply. I am not looking for the Tencent version, and my question is not about how to relock, but rather if I can unlock again after relocking.

    Post Question Question Regarding Bootloader Unlock/Relock For ASUS ROG Phone 5/5s?

    What about the US version? The global version (EU) is different from the US version, but I personally believe it would be the same story as with global version (EU), but I just want to confirm.

    Post Question Anyone know a trusted source to buy LE2113 (global/EU) variant of OnePlus 9 that can also ship to Canada/US?

    The problem is with the network support. Check Kimovil for the CN version vs Global version vs NA version vs IN version. NA version has the best network support overall and in North America. Global version falls slightly short, but I want that due to having dual SIM support, so I can tolerate a...

    Can you send me the link to the product in eBay? I want the LE2113 (EU/Global) version, not the LE2110 (CN) [with global ROM] version, or any other version?

    Post Question Anyone know a trusted source to buy LE2113 (global/EU) variant of OnePlus 9 that can also ship to Canada/US?

    I mentioned that in my previous answer. I live in Canada, and I am using Freedom Mobile. I checked Kimovil for the network bands support, and my carrier has 100% support (not all phones have that, especially band 13). In fact, this phone has green everywhere with good support, so I believe it...

    Post Question Anyone know a trusted source to buy LE2113 (global/EU) variant of OnePlus 9 that can also ship to Canada/US?

    The EU version has most of the network support in US/Canada (it supports all of the networks of the carrier I am using here in Canada - I am using Freedom Mobile). The reason I want the global/EU variant is because of the dual SIM support.
