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…..

If the device is showing up as 9008 in device manager, that means its bricked, send me a private message and we'll what can be done.

Hello,
my phone was unsuccessfully updated and now it doesn't boot and Recovery can't see cache partition whatever I do:
E:failed to mount /cache
Without the cache, I can't flash firmware any more (adb sideload doesn't work). Please, help me what can I try?
It's MSM8916 phone and WW 8916-13.8.26.110 firmware

Place the qfil firmware on root directory of the C drive, disconnect device from pc, open qfil, add necessary files first, now connect device to pc (make sure port shows up) then hit download button.

Tried that too. Ended up with same result.

Sometimes the device was not detected properly. So I have to remove and connect the battery. After that it shows as qdloader in device manager
