Hello friend, have you not contemplated the possibility of making a video tutorial about it? Personally, I am a rog3 novice, but an expert in other brands

flash WW rom is not a big deal, just use ROM in previous post, entering fastboot mode then execute flashall_AFT.cmd from PC (don't use OPEN_* version).
But I don't know how to change it's fingerprint from CN to WW, some articles said need to root to change the value inside /vendor/factory/COUNTRY file. But I cannot find suitable recovery for my ROG 3 CN version, TWRP for ROG3 not release yet.

I think in ROG 3 no need change fingerprint again like Rog2.
But problem is if want update rom,must full download,is it true?

People have tested the manual update after converting from CN to WW and the devices got bricked,

So please be patient and wait for the proper conversion tutorial otherwise you'll brick your phone possibly beyond repair

Which thread that people test the manual update?

I also want to know after flash WW rom and put update file to phone. Not flash OPEN_* file and got bricked.

Have to separate the issues.

My one almost success, but a bit problem : cannot use Google Pay and Netflix.
I also used tools payload dumper to extract .img files and Magisk to root it to change /vendor/factory/COUNTRY if you're interesting and already experience with them.

Detail I still need to investigate to solve my current problems, so not announce here in case you also get the trouble

Can you provide step by step i9how to flash please?

Is your refresh rates working?

Also, how did you connect your rog 3 to computer because the USB that came with my rog 3 is type c to type c?

    Just converted on a Tencent Classic. No issues. Comment section in the video, "Putin" suggested to delete "COUNTRY.bak" file after changing fingerprint to change charge screen from chinese to ww. That worked too. Took less then an hour.

    Yes, Vladimir Putin, that was me ?? glad I was able to help

    For those who are interesting on ROG3 CN to WW, you can refer to this VN channel (via Google Translate for me).
    They seems provide every files you need (including latest rooted boot.img).

    adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.asus.hardwarestub
    This gets rid of notification.
