please update me if you find any way to revive it , thanks

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.

Have ran myself into a big problem. I had installed los 18.1 (after trying los 17.1 and omni.) on my Indian variant rog3. Later wanted to return to los 17.1.so as a first step flashed the stock raw firmware from this thread. Flash went without errors in the terminal. On. Rebooting was stuck on bootloop. Formating data from stock recovery didn't help. Trying to flash los 17.1 or omni also gave bootloop. But los 18.1 booted fine on flashing.
Later tried again to flash .99, .98 ,.58 raw firmware from here . all flashed without errors only to bootloop. Flashing full stock ROM zips from lineageos recovery also resulted in bootloop.

So now my phone only works with los 18.1 installed. Stock or other ROMs results in bootloop.

Please help.
I have the same problem when I flashed LOS 18.1 and wanted to go back to stock ROM.
Have you fixed this?

I was able to return to stock after flashing persist.img backup back. Seems some files in persist was changed on los installation. Followed this instruction from yidu for the restoration process https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/rom-unofficial-i003-obiwan-lineageos-18-1.4204665/post-84161965 . Aleasto merged my persist backup with yidus 1.img(which can be found 5 post above in the link given) and I flashed the resulting persist.img via adb. Flashing 1.img alone will stop bootloop on stock , but without your persist backup fingerprint may not work.
How do I flash the 1.img persist?
I have the same issue

Tried doing both only step 3 and edl, since I can access fastboot(edl just unlocks bootloader for me). It goes through all of the processes without any errors and when it finishes the phone tries to boot(the issue is it tries forever with no success). After flashing I've left it alone for about 30 min, but it's still on the boot/asus rog logo screen, since no progress bar or any other changes appear, I can only assume it gets stuck in another bootloop. What can I do now?
