[Guide] How to flash kernels on Zenfone 5


This will be a short guide on how to flash kernels on to Zenfone 5. It is a pretty easy process and can be done without rooting the phone. 

Kernels are basically boot images that you have to flash via bootloader. As of kernels itself it is that part of the operating system that acts as a middle man in the communications between the hardware and software. Interested people can read more on it here.

You can find the kernels for each ROM inside the zip file for the ROM mainly named as boot.img. For convenience you will find links to some kernels of Resurrection ROM builds to flash. 

Download links for the kernel are at the end of this post.

To flash the kernel first of all boot into your bootloader (Vol Up+Power).  Download the kernel you want to. It will have a .img extension. Rename the file to “boot” without the quotations. So the file now becomes boot.img

The renaming is optional and it will just help in the flashing process.

Place the renamed file in the ADB folder. You can download ADB from here if you do not have it yet (which is highly unlikely).

Connect your phone to your PC via USB in the bootloader mode. Open the CMD window inside the ADB folder ( Press Shift+Ctrl+Right Click on a white space of the folder)

Type in the following command to flash the kernel :

fastboot flash boot boot.img 
Now wait for the flashing process to end and you have your new kernel flashed! Check below for some kernel download links.
