1. Stuck at white screen with asus logo?
Sol. a) White screen means you are unlocked (action of unlock.bat), so you may give a try to restore.bat in fastboot mode.
b) If you can go to recovery mode then you can go to previous state(before starting unlocking) by using adb command
First boot to recovery(it should be the stock one), you'll see dead android logo, keep pressing power -then vol up-then release vol up- now release power. (This should be quick, otherwise pressing power button for too long will shut you down)
When successfull, you'll see options, choose apply update from adb, and follow command
adb sideload mm.zip
Warning Before that you must download same version full firmware from asus website Here
2. Having problems with device connection? like waiting for device.
Sol. Make sure you have enabled USB Debugging (Not applicable for BL Unlocking and TWRP Flashing)
Uninstall all drivers previously installed on computer(every driver of any device)
Reboot your computer. And then install all drivers given in the driver folder.
If the problem persists, try different computer and different usb cable.
3. Facing permission denied in fastboot mode or while running script files.
Sol. Try disabling your lock screen security to none.
4. Want to relock bootloader?
Sol. No possible way for now. The post will be updated if it ever comes.
5. Safetynet Failed?
Sol. 1. Have you enabled Magisk Hide in the settings of Magisk Manager? Try toggle to disable, and re-enable again.
2. If you are using SuperSU, you often need suhide, or maybe other solutions. Developer do not have control of how SuperSU behaves.
3. It might be due to xposed. Either you remove xposed or wait for future updates.
