ASUS Releases Official Bootloader Unlocker For ZenFone 2
If you own an Asus Zenfone 2 and want to flash custom ROMs to your phone, there’s some good news for you.
The Taiwanese giant has released a bootloader unlocking tool for the ZenFone 2 which will enable power users and enthusiasts flash custom ROMs on the phone.
However, it’s worth mentioning that using the tool to unlock the bootloader would still void your phone’s warranty. Also, users won’t be able to return the phone to its locked state after unlocking it. You will also not be able to receive over-the-air software updates.
Users also need to update their ZenFone 2 phone to version 22.214.171.124 or latest version 2.
Asus’ note on unlocking the phone mentions:
