Disclaimer: I came from CN Rom updated to the latest before using this method.

I am not sure if this will work if you are already on global rom but it should work as well.

DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! I am not liable to any damage if you accidentally brick your device.

===========================================

Steps on upgrading from CN Rom to Complete Global Rom

(Check your ROM, if you are on 1907 firmware, skip to step 3)

1) Download the WW International rom from here

https: //tinyurl.com/y5yq6sfk

2) Extract the file on your PC. Boot the phone into fastboot mode (hold volume up then press and hold power button) connect to the side port and run "flashall_AFT.cmd" wait for it to finish and the phone will restart itself.

3) Download the ROG Phone Unlock Tool and copy it on your phone and install it then run it. The phone will boot twice. DO NOT PRESS POWER TO STOP THE BOOT. It will wipe your data automatically.

4) Download and install Minimal ADB and Fastboot app (windows). Install it on your PC.

https: //tinyurl.com/yar6w5wb

5) Download the rootww190733.img and save it to the Miniman ADB and Fastboot Folder (C:\Program Files (x86) \Minimal ADB and Fastboot)

https: //tinyurl.com/y5xs4wam

6) Run Minimal ADB and Fastboot. Switch the phone into fastboot mode (hold volume up then press and hold power button) then type "fastboot flash boot rootww190733.img"

7) Reboot the phone and connect it to PC, copy and install Magisk and Root Explorer

https: //tinyurl.com/yxe66uol - Root Explorer

https: //tinyurl.com/y6yr3sem - Magisk

-run magisk, update and grant access to root explorer

8) Open the Root Explorer App on you phone. Then from the app, select Mount R/W to R/O. Search for "/vendor/factory" folder and Edit the file content COUNTRY from CN to WW (ALL Capital). Scroll to "/system/etc/AsusTheme/themes" then delete the hidden file to enable the hidden themes.

9) Restart the Phone. You are done with the first step.

=============================================

The next part will unroot your phone and relock the bootloader.

1) Download the stock boot loader "bootstockww190733.img and save it to the Miniman ADB and Fastboot Folder (C:\Program Files (x86) \Minimal ADB and Fastboot)

https: //tinyurl.com/yyfzrr49

2) Open Minimal ADB and Fastboot, switch your phone into fastboot mode, then connect to PC and type "fastboot flash boot bootstockww190733.img"

- after flashing, you will need to wipe/reset and boot back to fastboot mode

3) While on fastboot mode and ADB, Relock the bootloader and run "fastboot oem asus-csc_lk"

- this will relock your bootloader

4) After relocking the bootloader it will erase everything up automatically. If not, boot to recovery mode and wipe/reset. You are done!

Thanks for the write-up. The question is does this do anything for people who already are on the WW ROM? I'm not concerned with OTA updates but the weird behavior of the amoury crate app always defaulting back to stock launcher despite already specifying a different one.

Follow the guide of the first post, the partner has explained everything very well.
But come on, if you have never done this I recommend that you watch videos before and advise yourself well.

Can anyone who has attempted to do this please run the Device Info HW app and post a screenshot of the SYSTEM tab so we can compare it against the screenshot JazonX shared below.

We need to confirm that the Product ID is changed from CN as well as the Boot Fingerprint.

Thanks.

    u mean just like this? soo my WW ROM finger print still CN?
    Yes, also the product id is still CN. Yep, you need to follow the guide to change fingerprint to WW. Sorry, just work right now so can't provide links... I'll have a look later if you get stuck...

    I see you're on 1906, that's what I was on too when I followed this guide. Then I updated to 1908 once my fingerprint was changed. I didn't bother with re locking bootloader and left root. There's a thread about updating to 1908 and keeping root. But be careful when using that method to update to magisk 20, the OTA method doesn't work for me and I had to reinstall using raw rom (WW). Then I updated to magisk 20 using the recommended method (direct install). And that worked. If you don't want root and want to re lock bootloader then, yes, just stick to this guide here and then manually update to 1908 (latest)

    ---------- Post added at 01:08 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:23 PM ----------

    Can someone help me with the stock/rooted boot image for WW 1908 please? I managed to update to 1908 but lost root in the process as i dont think I can install the rooted 1907 image now
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-GJBWcO7jQsHYGhgFsQZ4cLRvvGpvVMh/view?usp=sharing

    Here's the link for root and stock WW and CN img's 1908.

    You're correct, don't try to use 1907 root img on 1908

    Matches perfectly Tencent 8gb 128gb model plus it fixes the video camera issue where you had to turn off Google assistant. This needs to be stickied and added to CN to WW steps
