  1. Hi ! I have followed all instructions but when i try the fastboot command, it just says waiting for device. When my zenfone is on, my pc can detect it but not in fastboot mode. Help please?

    1. You need to find fastboot devices for your Zenfone 5, I'm suggesting you to install 15 seconds minimal ADB+Fastboot installer. (for Windows only) Just search on XDA.

  2. can't download fastboot files, pressing download button does not anything

    2. How do i Unlock Bootloader ???

  5. Guys if you have installed a previous version of TWRP or .img supported recovery, you can just flash this on your phone without any problems. Just select .img mode and select the .img you wanna flash. Flash it!
