Hello, first time in here!

I was planning to buy the Rog Phone 5S, and I found a quite cheap CN Tencent version on eBay.

However, I'm not really into ROMs and firmware things, so I would like to ask a couple of things.

Is there any EASY way to install the WW version? I tried looking here in the forum's, but I was a bit confused, so I thought it was better to ask here.
And also after installing the Global version, will I be able to receive auto updates like usual?

Thanks in advance for the answers, have a nice weekend everyone!! :D

Yeah I saw that guide, but it talks about edl mode, and I honestly don't know what it is or if my phone will have it. How can I know that before buying?

I'm sorry if my questions sounds stupid, but I know basically nothing about those kind of things

Then it's actually better off to find a WW version (International) rather than go through the hassle and headache of converting one. Asus made it difficult over the year for conversions, and especially on the 5S - the conversion us not yet a 100% successful.

Sad to hear, WW ones are way more expensive and much harder to find 😔 I would try to go for the conversion, but if it's not 100% successful, that's a problem. What happens if the conversion don't go the right way? Does the phone bricks, or it simy stays the way it is?

那么实际上最好找到一个 WW 版本(国际)而不是经历转换一个的麻烦和头痛。华硕一年来都很难进行转换,尤其是在 5S 上——转换我们还没有 100% 成功。
rog 5s flashing into ww firmware will prompt hardwarestub services, there is no way to solve it now. rog1/2/3/5 can be converted perfectly, there is no prompt.
