Hi, I bought the Pegasus 3 from Tinydeal (German warehouse) so I received it with Global ROM. Looked to be perfect, but I couldn't make or receive any phone calls because a message box kept popping up: ASUS calling screen has stopped.

So then I tried updating the firmware (it said there was one available) but it stopped halfway during installation. After that I tried installing the new firmware manually, but I overlooked the "CN" part So I was stuck on Chinese ROM. It took some time, but following this tut: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1982587 and using this ROM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/gen...sus-3-x008-t3447614/post69293999#post69293999 I managed to get back to Global ROM.

However; still the same problem! ASUS calling screen has stopped. Is there anybody who has an idea for me to fix it? I tried using Nova Launcher, but perhaps I should try a different dialer?

One other thing: my contacts don't sync with Google, and I can't add the Google account to ASUS contacts. But Calendar, Gmail etc are all there...

I sincerely hope to be able to use this phone!

I think I may have a clue on the issue; it seems the IMEI number is invalid. Probably after flashing the Global ROM using SP Flash tools?
So now I'm looking to edit IMEI number with MTK Droid Tool, but the device is not recognized. I installed MTK USB drivers, Android CDC drivers, tried PDAnet, ASUS PC-link but none of it works. I'm getting rather desperate :crying:

First question; to use MTK Droid Tool, should the USB be used for Charging, File transfers or USB storage? USB-debugging is on.
Second; what more can I do?

Thanks in advance!

hello, your reseller seem to sell you a chinese asus version (check the firmware version if it CMCC... it is a chinese rom). The asus X008 and asus zc520tl zenfione max 3 are the same.

So if your firmware is CMCC .... nstall a fresh original rom with sp flashtools (http://www.needrom.com/download/asus-x008/), when done download the updated rom from asus (http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/ZenFone/ZC520TL/UL-ASUS_X008-CN-13.0.0.12-user.zip) and put it outside folders, restart the smartphone the update will be detected.

I got the same problem as you before and now everything is ok I can call and receieve calls, the only hings is that there are only chinese and engliash languages and you have to install alternativbe store like apptoide because google services are not avalable on chinses rom.

I'm really stuck with this phone I can't use right now :crying:

What would be the best way to get it working again? Currently the IMEI is wrong, so I need to root my device in order to be able to use it. The ROM I'm using right now is the adapted CN version, but ofcourse I'd love to use the (real) WW version I noticed someone found on a Russian board. What should I do?

Turn on the permissions for Asus Calling Screen, they are off by default. Hope this helps

And also to sync Google Contacts, you need to install Google Contacts Sync (http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google...-0-2280749-android-6-0-android-apk-download/) which is not installed on the ROM. The 6.0.1 version of the app works, but can't say the same for the 7.0. I believe it's because the system is Marshmallow and the version number reflects the system version. Hope this helps

Thanks! Where did you get the file, from your phone? I've got two BPLGU files (lwg and ltg), which one should I use? Tried both already, but neither one worked. Would it be possible for you to upload your file?

Anyone please?

Edit: I flashed the ROM again and this time it worked!! I used the modem file BPLGUInfoCustomAppSrcP_MT6735_S00_MOLY_LR9_W1444_MD_LWTG_MP_V88_P12_1_lwg_n that I copied from the phone to my desktop. (As I did before, but this time it worked!!)
