Razer has released the factory images for its Razer Phone
Razer has rolled out the factory images for its Razer Phone. The news was posted on a dedicated page on Razer’s developer site (via Android Police), where the company posted the November, December and January firmware releases.
There have been guides on how to unlock the Razer Phone bootloader since shortly after its release, so some users are likely to have flashed alternative firmware. Getting the device back to its factory state later, however, is tricky without the original system images at hand. Razer has now made this easier for device owners to get back to the default state, and delivered instructions on how to do so.
The company does highlight that doing so will void your warranty (because it involves unlocking the bootloader) and, in an FAQ section, clearly indicates that no help will be provided should you encounter problems. Razer also advises against using its own cable when flashing the images, stating that this is intended for high power transfer rather than data transfer (use a USB 3 Type-A to Type-C instead).
With that in mind, it’s always good to see a manufacturer support this option for those who wish to try out other ROMs. If you want to get the device up and running with the stock firmware again, visit the Razer website here.
