Soft Brick Recover Guide 

This is an overview of what to do when your ROG Ally is bricked and will no longer power on.


Materials Needed:

  • Phillips size 100 driver
  • Plastic pry tool

Notes:

  1. Sometimes it can take a while to recover on the first boot.
  2. BY FOLLOWING THIS GUIDE YOU TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN ACTIONS
  • Disassemble your Ally(remove the back cover),
  • Disconnect the battery connector from the battery to the motherboard,
  • With the battery disconnected wait for it to discharge the flash/CMOS(wait at least 120 seconds),
  • Plug the battery back in, close the shell all the way (so the light sensor isn’t tripped),
  • Reinstall all screws to prevent any weirdness with the battery detection system.
  • Plug in the OEM charger, press and hold the power button, and release once the screen is on.
  • Once on the Republic Of Gamers screen you must wait around 180 seconds for it to boot to bios.
  • Reset Bios to factory defaults and save and exit.
