Also when you said the "Hardwaresub Services" will pop up on the ROG 5S, does it popup on the screen while you're doing stuff or does it popup once and leaves you alone until you close the notificationThese materials can only be used for ROG Phone 5S_ZS676KS, and ROG Phone 5_ZS673KS cannot be used. I will release the materials for ROG 5 separately.
ROG Phone 5 ZS673KS Please see here:https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...ootloader-to-modify-country-cn-to-ww.4353865/
If your ROG Phone 5S ZS676KS only has edl mode (port 9008), then this tool can help you repair your phone through edl mode.
Or if you want to modify COUNTRY, flash the firmware of WW, you don't need to apply to unlock the Bootloader,
you don't need ROOT, just follow me.
1.Connect the phone to the computer through the USB port on the left, enter the fastboot mode,
and then open "Reboot-to-edl.bat" to enter the edl mode. Or enter fastboot oem enter-dload in cmd.
2.You must flash in the ENG firmware that I modified. If you find the firmware online,
you may lose your fingerprint and IMEI after flashing.
Method 1: The phone enters edl mode, and when you see port 9008 in the device manager,
open the ENG folder--open "0-update_image_EDL.bat"
Method 2: The phone enters edl mode, and after you see port 9008 in the device manager, use the XiaoMiFlash tool to flash in.
Method 3: The phone enters edl mode, and after you see port 9008 in the device manager,flash in through the QPST tool.
3.After flashing in the firmware and successfully booting up, be sure to back up your phone partition files. If your phone's fingerprint is lost or IMEI is lost,
it can be restored to normal. If you don't have a backup, it will be very troublesome.
Double-click to open "Backup.bat", it will automatically back up your phone partition files, you need to save these files, follow-up will definitely help you.
Include these 10 files：“persist.img factory.img modemst1 modemst2 asuskey4 fsg fsgCA fsc fsgCA2 fsgCA3”
Normally, you don’t need to restore these files. If your fingerprint or imei is lost and you need to restore these files to your phone,
please flash the ENG firmware, then put these 10 files into the ROG 5S folder, and double-click to open " Restore.bat" can be restored to your phone.
4.If your machine is an global version, after backing up and saving 10 files, directly enter the fastboot mode, open the WW folder-open "flash_raw_and_wipe_data.cmd" to flash the WW firmware, and successfully repair your ROG 5S.
If you cannot flash the firmware in fastboot mode, the prompt: fastboot error CID () Mapping wrong Xrom!
You can Double click to open"Open-Cmd.bat",Then enter the commands, enter fastboot -v flash all xx.raw
xx.raw is the firmware on your computer, for example: fastboot -v flash all C:\Users\johnny\Desktop\ROG5\WW\WW_ZS673KS_18.0810.2101.95_M188.8.131.52-ASUS_1.1.46_Phone-user.raw
version display asus fastboot version and list support project.
-v flash all : disable asus raw id checking.
-g flash all : disable repartition.
-C flash all : disable CRC_<partition>.
If your machine is the CN version, and you want to flash into the WW Firmware, but don’t want to unlock the BootLoader, you can use WinHex to open the persist.img you just backed up,
find COUNTRY, change CN to WW and save it, and you can directly restore it to your phone through the dd command Inside, there is no need to unlock or install magisk.
Double click to open"Open-Cmd.bat",Then enter the commands one by one
adb push persist.img /sdcard/
dd if=/sdcard/persist.img of=/dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/persist
Then enter the fastboot mode, open the WW folder-open "flash_raw_and_wipe_data.cmd" to flash the WW firmware.

I have also studied Hardwaresub Services for a long time, ROG1/ROG2/ROG3 only need to modify COUNTRY, CN to WW, and then flash into the global version,
there will be no such prompt. In addition to modifying COUNTRY, ROG 5 also needs to modify asuskey4.
In this partition, clear the imei, then there is no prompt. But I can’t do anything with ROG 5S.
This machine verifies modemst1 and modemst2. I tried it for a long time, but I couldn’t get rid of the prompt except for the whitelist.
If your ROG3/ROG5/ROG5S is the CN version, but you have flashed the WW firmware, you cannot unlock the Bootloader, or you are prompted to unlock successfully, but the Bootloader is still not unlocked after restarting, you can write the correct SSN and ISN of the phone Go to asuskey4, then restore to the phone partition, and then use the official unlocking tool to unlock it.
