May I ask, this phone can unlock bootloader for only one time?
In my country several importers sell Tencent ww flashed.
I think they relocked bootloader after ww flashed, so those phones are unable to unlock bootloader again?
(I read here no free/public edl unbrick available yet.)

One of the major risks of buying a converted model is the risk that the bootloader cannot be unlocked. Currently, there is no workaround for it.

2. I would like to convert it to ww version , will I face any issue of fingerprint or any other issue?

Usually, this is where I would link to this thread. Since you're already here, though, why not take a minute and read through it.

Im so sorry, but im getting a ROG 5s Tencent edition and i want to install global rom, but i literally have no idea where to start. Is it possible if not too much trouble, if someone could give me a step by step. I know im asking a bit but i would appreciate any help
 
I can see all the forums for different things but i dont know where to start. Like if there was something that was like "Step 1 download this file, step 2 run this program" im just new to converting phones, ive hacked switch's and such but i had a guide to help me lol

Did you join a forum, go to the first pinned thread, and say "post me a guide right here" or did you have to find the guide? This thread is a collection of guides.
