Hey, I'm in the same boat. I found a blog that seems to imply that you can use cydia impactor but I was not able to get it to work. I can't post the link but its on asus-zenfonedotblogspotdotjp. The reason I'm trying to root is that my phone came with the chinese firmware preinstalled, meaning that I cannot use google sync or google play store. I want to root to flash the rom or to simply be able to install google services. Please let me know if you make any progress. good luck.
I think you misunderstood me. I wanted to go to WW ROM coming from a CN ROM.
Finally managed it. I downloaded the latest ROM from ASUS, den unziped it, then removed the ".secure" and replaced the WW with CN. Then I moved it to the main directory from my PC, unplugged it and got "the triangle with exclamation mark". At the prompt I was able to install it. Now I am rockin an International ROM
Fastboot still does not work, btw - at least it says "device not found" although I can flash the fastboot.img without problems.
