ASUS Zenfone 2 Bootloader Is Now Able To Unlocked, As Long As You’re Running The Most Recent Firmware
The ASUS Zenfone 2 has shown a well known device in the first couple of days available on the market. It’s affordable and it has good specs. As David stated within our review, the program is its greatest issue, which means you know you will find loads of users anxious to mod the crap from it. Great news with that front-there’s now a bootloader unlock method, and it is not terribly untidy.
Based on reports on XDA, you are able to unlock the bootloader on your own if you are running the most recent 2.19.40 firmware. This version has not folded to all devices yet, so this is the primary caveat here. You will also need root, which is not difficult on the Zenfone. Then you need to just have the ability to go into the following ADB instructions to unlock.

Whenever you reboot, the boot screen ought to be white-colored rather of black, indicating the bootloader is unlocked. Bear in mind this method isn’t reversible (a minimum of at this time), and you may most likely break things if you are not careful. Be careful. Anyway, now that you have a bootloader unlock, developers can begin getting custom recoveries and ROMs running around the Zenfone 2.
