    1. Hi Christopher, the Global WW Raw firmware is only available for ROG Phone 6. Once I get hold of that firmware for the Pro version, I will update this guide and let you know.

    2. Oi, eu queria saber se assim que instalar a ROM global ela vai ter a opção de ficar português e também vai ter todos aplicativos de um Android normal (inclusive a play story)

    3. Hi, I wanted to know if the global ROM includes the Portuguese language and also if it has normal apps from an Android, for example the Play Store

  1. Thanks so much for this guide. I have converted my CN to WW ROM. Wish there was a video to follow though.

    Also, at the end of the conversion I had received a pop-up stating:
    “The installed firmware does not match the device origin. Please note that you may not receive any FOTA updates.”

    What is FOTA updates?
    Are FOTA updates important?
    How may I receive FOTA updates?


  2. Hello, I have a ROG 6 device, which apparently already came with the WW, but I cannot update neither OTA nor manual, and on the back it has the Tencent logo, which makes me think that the seller had already made the guide that you have, the problem now lies in what I want to update, what would be the method or what steps should I follow, help please.

  3. Hey thanks so much for publishing this guide! I have an issue, though. every time I click flashall_AFT, i get : ‘findstr’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.
    “Start downloading Texas images…”
    [command] : fastboot.exe flash all abl_only

    and it stops there. I would really appreciate the help! thank you in advance 🙂

  4. This guide (along with many others linked to it) worked for me!! Thank you sooooo much for this! It took me 10hours but I also did have to learn everything from scratch so… you’re an amazing teacher thankyou

  5. I have tried this with the pro version, but now the phone has a black screen and will not turn on, yet still connects to the pc but isn’t recognized by the pc. any advice?

  6. Hi, I already have my computer converted to the WW version, but I can’t install updates or OTG, how can I update it? what steps to follow, help please.

  7. The 6GHz Wi-Fi radio seems to be disabled on CN model. Is there a way to re-enable it?

    Also, why does OTA updates not work with this? What are they transmitting to ID the phone that can’t be modified? It’s so strange that WW converted device can load the official firmware but only if placed manually on the storage.

    Hi, and thx for your guides.
    I have just one question:
    Is this guide works for the ROG Phone 6 with Mediatek processor, like the Batman Edition ?
    I purchased a phone with CN rom, and would like to change for the Global Rom.

    Thx for your answer.
