It is scheduled by Q1 of this year. So most probably by march we should get it i think. Since Zenfone 8 has got its android 12 update as promised by dec 2021

@twistedumbrella is it possible for you to add a feature that unlocks the refresh rate restriction when connecting to an hdmi capture card? I really don't want to buy one of those super expensive 120hz capture cards as I only stream occasionally and just for fun. Its just not worth it for me. All I have is an HD60 capture card but the phone automatically restricts the refresh rate to 60 because of the card being only capable of capturing at 60fps

I'll look into it. That may be more of a "quality of life" restriction to not send incompatible signals. Considering 120 is a relatively newer thing on phones, it's not like 60 is the new feature. They typically wouldn't restrict something like that without at least some reason.

Yea that makes sense, but in some forums Ive read, some people say samsung doesnt have that kind of restriction. But yea asus must have restricted it for a reason but It would be really awesome if you could lift that refresh rate limit I would be happy to try it. we do it at our own risk anyway.

(Sorry for my bad english btw)

I've been wanting to try this but I got discouraged by some of the comments but I'm going to go ahead and give it a shot so far the feedback has been pretty good
It is a good and stable kernel for gaming and everyday use in my opinion. Temperatures are handled better than stock kernel during gaming
I think I got ramdump error (if you don't use AOD) only once in my 50 days usage.

Hey @twistedumbrella

A new firmware released today.
Any changes on Kernel Level?

After digging through everything, it looks like the only big change was the core networking stuff. Everything else is somewhere dead in the middle of the upstream changes. This also means it can more or less be ignored. On a positive note, Asus is actually much closer to current. To put an actual marker on it, they finally made it to the PlayStation drivers.

Anyway, the update is uploading now.

    This kernel is (just barely a little) experimental. Use at your own risk.
    Feel free to skip past the first 5 pages when reading over this thread.​


    This kernel assumes a few things about you, the user:

    1. You have a ROG Phone 5
    2. You have read all warnings and instructions
    3. You are rooted (implying an unlocked bootloader)
    4. You have an installation method
    5. You have a backup boot image
    6. You have disabled Always-on Panel


    Releases will be labeled with the commit hash of their source. The newest firmware is recommended for this kernel, but not necessarily required. I am not responsible for any issues or damage caused by installing this kernel, so have a backup ready before proceeding.

    Please keep the conversation respectful and on-topic. Think to yourself: "Will this contribute to the development of this kernel?" before posting and we'll all be much happier. Any questions or concerns about this announcement can be voiced in my PM box. Just please let our devs work their magic and support them; it's the only way forward.

    Stay safe!

    Formatted my hard drive and installed Mojave. Hopefully whatever issues were on my end should get resolved by doing everything fresh.

    Asus has also begun diagnosing the issue. Their support is horribly slow, but has at least agreed to investigate.

    Asus has just released new firmware and source for V18.0840.2104.47

    The next kernel release will require updating to V18.0840.2104.47
