Unbrick your ASUS ROG Phone 3 for free!!

Don't pay for this stuff anywhere, it's your device and you deserve the right to fix it yourself.
I noticed some people in the community charging upto 50$ for the firmware which should've been free from the start.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>
/*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.
* I'm not gonna tell you how to install drivers and other things and only[COLOR="RoyalBlue"][/COLOR]
* proceed with this if you know what you're doing and please do some
* research first. YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you
* point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
*/
NOTE - In case it's a Hard / Soft Brick
For Hard Brick - Hard brick is when your device can only enter EDL mode and shows up as Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 in device manager.
- Just follow from Step 1 to 3 to fix your device.

For Soft Brick - Soft brick is when the system fails to boot but you can access fastboot mode.
- Just follow Step 3 to fix your device.

Prerequisites ►
• Windows PC
• Device fastboot drivers
• Qualcomm EDL drivers
• a bricked ROG 3 duh

Downloads ►
• EDL Unbrick tool - ROG_PHONE_3_ZS661KS_UNBRICK_EDL.7z
• RAW ROG 3 Firmware - Check the second post below

Instructions ►
Make sure you have device manager opened up to see if the device is connected.

1] Extract the EDL firmware
- Use the side port and connect device to PC
- Then run the file named 1ROG3_VFLASH_EDL.cmd

2] After you get an EDL SUCCESS message let the device boot within a minute or two into bootloader, use the device manager to
check if it's in EDL and if it's still there after a minute, press Power key + Volume down for about 12-13 seconds until
you don't see it in Device Manager, keep it plugged in and let it boot or try to power it on so it gets into the bootloader.

3] Once it's in bootloader flash any of the RAW firmware linked above depending on the device that you have, if its Tencent then flash CN, for global it's WW.
- Extract the RAW firmware and run the file zs661ks_raw_flashall.bat , have some patience and do not disconnect the device as this will take some time.

• That's all folks.

Do we need to keep PC in Test Mode?
Sorry I used Unbrick Toll of Oneplus earlier in that we need to put PC in test mode, that's why I'm asking.

When drivers lack a valid driver signature Windows prevents them from being installed and that's where test mode and disabling Driver Signature Enforcement comes in, if you have driver's with valid signature then you don't need to do this :)

Thanks for making this thread. This is my 1st Asus device and I confirmed that this tool is working 100%. I got my bricked device back with this tool. Now waiting for other development for Dirty Flash.
