Device me lost imei before 🤣🤣🤣, i fixed imei but it change and signal ,data, sms working. I want write change imei , but it not change
My method is only suitable for machines whose CN is converted to WW and IMEI is normal. As for the loss of IMEI, unfortunately, I have no alternative except after-sales service. They have special tools to repair IMEI.

Couldn't find ISN in device.txt

There is a line -

[persist.vendor.asus.serialno]: [C4ATAS000000]

Putting C4ATAS000000 in asuskey4 & then pushing it successfully. But this key seems to be NOT working!

After flashing WW-RAW, asus unlock app says "Failed to unlock your device, please try again later.[24802]".

Also, my fingerprint has been disabled now!

Appreciate any help, please..

I would love to do this. But I'm my country I paid $1260 New Zealand for it. The box was not sealed when I ordered it an the bootloader is sealed tight. I'm not sure which version or it's been converted?

Is it possible for someone to make an instructional video an upload to YouTube?

It says senior developer on my profile as I've been with xda for years an helped people.

I'm a forklift driver lol. I can't even write code.

Is this something noobs could manage?

    If your ROG3/ROG5/ROG5S is a CN version, but it is WW firmware when you buy it, then the Bootloader cannot be unlocked, or it prompts that the unlocking is successful, but the Bootloader is still not unlocked after restarting.

    Why is it like this? Because Chinese merchants do not master the correct method of converting WW firmware, your mobile phone ISN is lost, so it cannot be unlocked. You only need to restore the correct SSN and ISN to unlock the Bootloader.

    Because many people privately wrote me to ask for help, I have no way and no time to help solve them one by one, so I will share the method and let you do it yourself.

    1. You must flash the ENG firmware that I released. If you flash the ENG firmware found elsewhere, your fingerprints and IMEI may be lost, and the phone cannot be used normally.

    2. Use the dd command to back up asuskey4 to the computer

    adb shell

    su

    dd if=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/asuskey4 of=/sdcard/asuskey4

    adb pull /sdcard/asuskey4 (Here is the directory name of your computer, for example adb pull /sdcard/asuskey4 C:\Users\johnny886\Desktop\rog5)

    3. Read the correct SSN and ISN of the mobile phone, and then write the SSN and ISN into asuskey4

    adb shell getprop >device.txt

    Then use notepad++ or other editing tools to open device.txt
    Search SSN, copy SSN to the new text, search SSN, copy ISN to the text. Then use winhex or UltraEdit to open asuskey4, write the SSN and ISN to the correct address, SSN address: 00000000h ISN address:00000180h,
    then save the file, and use the command to restore asuskey4 to the phone partition.

    4. Use the dd command to restore asuskey4 to the phone

    adb push ...\asuskey4 /sdcard/ ( for example adb push C:\Users\johnny886\Desktop\rog5\asuskey4 /sdcard/ )

    adb shell

    su

    dd if=/sdcard/asuskey4 of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/asuskey4

    5.Enter fastboot mode, flash the official raw WW firmware, and install the official website unlock tool after entering the system to unlock the phone.

    My ROG5 is being shown in Device Manager as Qualcomm 9008. So I guess it has entered in EDL mode.
    Could you reinstall the drivers I have faced issues like this before with other Qualcomm devices. Reinstall Qualcomm drivers it should work. And remember to install with disable signature enforcement.
