It has been a long time I did something on the Zenfone 5 but Marshmallow ROMs have been very stable so far on the Zenfone 5 and it did deserve a video and a whole new article. Have been using the ROM on Zenfone 5 (as a secondary testing device) and so far it has been good. You can check out the full video on our channel for more.
*HONEST MISTAKE MADE IN THE VIDEO!! This is the ROM BY TecnoTailsPlays and not @tank0412. I mentioned the ROM to be the one by tank0412. Did try out Tank’s ROM at first but it has issue with Gapps! Updated download links are given.. The TecnoTailsPlays’s ROM doesn’t have the GAPPS issue.
The ROM is made by XDA user @TecnoTailsPlays so all development credits go to him. Now lets take a quick look at how you can get it on your own Zenfone 5. ( If you have that unfortunate variant of Zenfone 5 that causes screen freeze on bootloader unlock then this ROM won’t work for you either)
XDA LINK : Click Here ( All downloads are in this link)
Put the file into an SD Card/Pendrive and connect it via OTG
– Reboot in Recovery (if you use OTG go to Mount and mount OTG)
– Wipe System, Cache, Dalvik Cache, Internal and Data Partition
– Flash rom [Flash the GAPPS too before first boot otherwise Google Play Services might not work]
– Reboot system
It is assumed you have already unlocked your bootloader and have TWRP. If you didn’t kindly follow these to unlock bootloader and install TWRP
Unclock bootloader (Zip password is zenfone-five.blogspot.com) – RUN the .exe file and follow on screen instructions.
Download TWRP – Go to bootlaoder, flash the following image file using the command “fastboot flash recovery <filename>.img”
