If you're stuck on USB screen or ASUS logo.
Guys when I was searching for a solution to my problem I came across this tutorial video . And remarkably it worked. My device booted successfully. "I was able to enter droidboot/fastboot whatever you may call it and recovery mode" If you're having the same problem and you aren't able to find a solution anywhere I'll suggest to give this video a shot All the best!

I use latest firmware to update my phone ( recently and able to revive my bricked phone (few month ago with the the ww firmware)

a little update on my mini guide should be more clear now

- Download ADB and Fastboot (install at c:\adb for easy access )
- Download and install the Windows zenfone 5 driver
- Download firmware from Asus site for WW ( extract this zip file to get fastboot.img, boot.img and copy these to your ADB Fastboot folder )
- Rename the WWzip into "" and move it to your ADB Fastboot folder (for easy typing in cmd)
- Turn Off your phone - connect to pc with usb cable
- Hold vol up and then press power On button of your phone - Keep holding both buttons, it should went into Droidboot screen.
- Open command prompt (cmd) and go to your ADB Fastboot folder (e.g. cd C:\adb)
- Type the following 2 lines: "fastboot flash fastboot fastboot.img" and "fastboot flash boot boot.img" (look phone screen, should say successfully done for both)
- Scroll down(use volume keys) to recovery and select it(use power key) and your phone will reboot
- now that you are in recovery(you can see a droid symbol lying down with red triangle over its stomach)
- Hold Vol Down and press Vol up (menu should appear)
- Choose "Apply update from adb"
- From cmd above type "adb sideload"
- Wipe cache/dat and reboot

Question Flashing fastboot with wrong image.
Hi there.
As the title said, i've mistakenly type the flashing command with "fastboot flash fastboot xxx.img". The xxx.img actually a "recovery" image not a "fastboot" image. Since that i can't flash official firmware with fastboot command because i can't get in to droidboot/fastboot mode. I did the flashing because of "" FC'ed in the end of booting and hinder me from doing anything in homescreen.
I have Phils Touch CWM as recovery. I tried flashing official firmware with CWM with no luck. Is there anyway to have fastboot mode again? Please help me. Any ideas or suggestions greatly appreciated.
