Here are the few steps to follow (If you want your phone back)

Things Needed

1. Dead Phone (Soft brick / Hard Brick)
2. QPST (For flashing) https://androidmtk.com/download-qpst-flash-tool
3. Firmware file https://www.firmware27.net/2017/10/asus-zenfone-max-z010d-zc550kl-firmware.html
4. USB
5. PC

Steps

1. Install QPST
2. Download the firmware file and extract it (LINK)
3. Charge your phone for a while though it displays nothing on your screen
4. Open QFIL ( C:\Program Files (x86)\Qualcomm\QPST\bin)


Select Flat build in (Build Type)
Select PROGRAMMER File (available in your firmware folder)
Then , In the download portion,
Select “Load XML”
Then, select rawprogram0 and then patch0
Finally, you have done the basic steps

Now, Go to Device manager

For some persons, Qualcomm HS-USB loader (COM PORT) won’t appear.
To enable it, Just plug in your usb to your mobile and press “Power On “ for a while.

Then you can see the port in QFIL too.

Then press download…..

The blog containing links is in Indonesian, why don't you write out a more explicit guide with the files needed in English. You can send me a PM with more explicit instructions and I'll start a more complete and explicit thread.

I found out you can't even download files from the site given, this post looks like something fishy [emoji11]

Extract the files to this location...

C:\Program Files (x86)\Qualcomm\QPST\bin

Don't put any file in any folder form....
Thanks a lot, the problem was actually because we were trying to flash the device using the 8916 qpst firmware not knowing that the device was a 8939 one, so we tried the 8939 firmware and it worked, BUT, now we're in factory mode, the file you have available to exit factory mode is for the 8916 device, can you please upload for the 8939 device? Or is there another way to exit factory mode ?

Hey man, I'm just a noob but how'd you get the 8939 version of your Qpst? Do you have a link for that or do we just need to do a little config? I still got no progress with my bricked Asus.. How bout yours?
