    Hey, I have rooted a few of these and helped a few people as well and feel confident I can help most anyone with the problems they face rooting this beast. Also I'm posting this to have a place I can send people I help so I don't have to keep retyping stuff. From what I can tell the steps to root this phone are almost the same as the last model.

    For now I will just post rough steps and use this as a place to provide support to people.


    STEPS: (Rough guide/ please use other sources of information also)

    1.) Fully update your phone

    2.) Download the bootloader unlock app from asus official website. Also download and install Magisk. I recommend canary release.

    3.) Get a patched boot.img or learn with a search engine how to extract the boot.img from payload.bin which can be found inside the large firmware zip files on the asus website (same link as unlock app but click firmware). Follow a tutorial.

    4.) Turn on adb settings, and roboot into fastboot. adb reboot bootloader

    For me for windows I needed to download fastboot drivers and go to device manager and install/update them.

    5.) Unlock the bootloader with: fastboot flashing unlock

    6.) Flash the patched boot image with: fastboot flash boot magisk_patched####.img

    7.) Download safteynetfix and go to Magisk -> Modules and install safteynetfix.zip. Then go to Magisk -> Settings and enable Zygisk, and Enforce Denylist. Then turn on airplane mode and click on Configure deny list. add apps that are not working with root here, then delete their storage in App->Settings and reboot, remove airplane mode, and force close the apps in question.

    For example select Show -> system apps. and add Google Play Store and Google play services to the deny list. Then go to App->Settings and delete both of those app's storage. Then when you reboot and remove airplane mode and force close google play and reopen it and go to Google Play -> Settings -> About you should see at the bottom "Device is certified".

    If this last step does not show certified you did something wrong or I described it bad, check with a tutorial how to set up safteynet + configure deny list. Or post here and I will help you.


    FINAL NOTE: After this the OTA updates that ASUS pushes will not be downloaded by our phone. We need to go to the same website we downloaded the unlock app from and we need to download the firmware files (WW for me) and put them in /sdcard/UL-ASUS-Al2201....zip and reboot. We then need to repeat the root process and the Magisk module process. Also I think we need to do this for every update along the way and cannot skip to the most recent update but not sure.

    Hi! Thank you very much for sharing and helping. I have Tencent edition, from CN to WW, but a couple of things don't work properly:

    - Android Auto does not communicate with my car (phone detected and bluetooth connected) bit app stops.

    - Gboard voice dictation does not work (google assistant yes)

    Country is WW. Safetynet passed. Play certified.

    ..I followed your guide.

    I flashed the posted xda raw throuh fastboot and the the Magisk patched .img

    When I tried TO apply latest updates (160) the Same message error appeared.

    There is spmething strange (or are least I think It strange):

    When I start in "fastboot" (black screen with capital text single line) my device isn'r recognized by PC. Then I switch to "recovery" and then to "fastboot" and a menu (several lines) with title "fastbootd" appears and the phone is recognized by PC (fastboot devices). If I choose bootloader the first screen appears.

    I tried to reflash the raw but either the phone isn't recognized or a message appears on the cmd window showing "not rog 6" (more or less) and stops. But the phone is recognized everywhere as rog6...

    I miss my broken rog2, it was much easier to root 😭

    Do you have any idea what's going on? Or when the twrp boot will be released so that I can brutally flash any zip?
    To answer some other stuff, did you try looking in Device manager and maker sure your android device/asus rog is listed without an exclamation? I was having similar issues on windows until I installed the usb drivers. You should be able to run fastboot devices from within the bootloader menu.

    Keep spamming flashall_aft.cmd until it works or try flashing other raw.
    This worked for me if your able to get fastboot devices listed in adb firstly

    Troubleshooting

    1. Once you boot into the bootloader with the adb reboot bootloader command, stay on the screen with the green START. Do not navigate to the fastbootd.
    2. Use the side USB port to connect to your computer - not the bottom one.
    3. Run the adb and fastboot commands in Command Prompt as Administrator.
    4. Before you reboot into bootloader, remove Lock screen in Settings.
    5. If you execute fastboot flashing unlock and you got FAILED (remote: 'permission denied'), just ignore it.
    6. It's always better to install the latest updates, then download the firmware to your PC from ASUS Webpage and extract the boot.img and patch it in Magisk in the phone using this tutorial.
