HI.
I am currently using the Tencent verions 8/128gb rog phone 2.
My bootloader is unlocked and i am running the latest WW rom with WW fingerprint.

I want to go back to the original factory state so that i may be able to get the Updates via OTA.
I want to go back to the original CN version and be able to get the OTAs

I read in some posts that Once bootloader has been unlocked. There is no way to get ota anymore. Whether it be cn or ww.. even if you lock the bootloader again??? is that true?


Can someone answer/help me get back to the stock/original factory rom.

i have attached the detailed snapshots showing my current version

First you will never get any OTA updates because you unlocked the bootloader.
Second stay on WW better for you no need to get back to CN there is no updates about 2 month ago.

Does not work like that. It states clearly on Asus bootloader unlock tool, doing bootloader unlock will permanently disable OTA updates. Since your IEMI number will be automatically black listed from their OTA server. So even if you re-lock your bootloader you still won't receive any OTA updates.
but how? because all the imei are the same -.-

anyone has experienced what this man says.

Don't ask me ask asus. Since they are stating this clearly on their information about their tool.

Also unlocking bootloader does not change IMEI number. That's why doing OTA with re-locked or unlocked bootloader won't give you anymore OTA.

And yes I have seen people saying updates through OTA no longer works once bootloader is unlocked.
