ZC550KL Z010D root using Magisk

hello guys, anyone here successfully root your ZC550KL using Magisk instead of SuperSU? there was a note there that some Asus devices require "boot image signature" and I'm not sure our Z010D is one of these. how do you work around the boot image signature?

I would like to root my phone (this will be my first time for rooting) and I'm trying to avoid problems during the process and further usage. I prefer to use the stock "rooted" ROM for the moment.

By the way, my phone is ZC550KL (Z010D) with Android 6.0.1, 16G internal, msm8916, ww_13.8.26.110_20180110.

If you have experience about rooting with Magisk via TWRP, please share. Your help will truly appreciated.

    the step by step guideline is like these :
    UPDATE
    Due to the fact that Asus has finally released the bootloader unlock utility for the device , you can now flash twrp and root without using a beta kernel as described above in this post , what is now needed is just to download the unlock bootloader apk from here http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/Ze...8.1970894933.1503698507-1463517309.1503322403 ,unlock the device , after that use the same process and commands to flash twrp directly , after that , root using the same files as described below.

    INSTALLATION OF TWRP
    1. download minimal ADB and fastboot from here https://yadi.sk/d/JuXDyaWLsitGv and install with icon on desktop.
    2. dowload the custom recovery image from here https://yadi.sk/d/kT5i3rNksitPD
    3. enable usb debugging ,connect to PC and boot into fastboot mode.
    4. start minimal ADB and enter the following commands :


    Code:
    fastboot devices

    hit enter button


    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery

    after inputing this command press the space key on the keyboard and drag the recovery .img file to the command prompt window OR enter the directory of the recovery.img file.
    5. wait for everything to be done , it might come up with a message saying ""FAILED(remote:cant flash unsigned image)" , don't worry about that .
    6. IMPORTANT! POWER OFF THE DEVICE BY LONG PRESSING THE POWER BUTTON AND BOOT STRAIGHT INTO RECOVERY BY PRESSING VOLUME DOWN(-),IF YOU ALLOW THE DEVICE TO BOOT TO NORMAL SCREEN AT FIRST BOOT,THE STOCK RECOVERY WILL BE RESTORED !!
    7. after booting into TWRP you can now boot into normal screen and thats it folks , you're done
    ROOT
    1. download the superSU file from here https://yadi.sk/d/Yhm6fnohsiugr and flash from recovery , done
    DISCLAIMER :YOU ARE DOING EVERYTHING AT YOUR OWN RISK ,NO ONE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR DEVICE !

    im always stuck on adb window <waiting for device> nothing happens
    usb debugging is already on got to many drivers that I installed including the asus drivers, qualcomm drivers, adb drivers etc.
    already unlock my bootloader by the official asus app it just restarted my phone w/o any data being erased (is it normal?)
    im using windows 10 laptop
    my phone is zenfone max z010d 32GB SD410 2gb RAM running on MM lastest firmware 6.0.1 build WW_13.8.26.76_20161230
    i tried to detect my device using the adb while the phone is connected (normal turned on)by the command "adb devices"
    it detects my phone and show its code numbers/letters
    then I reboot it to fastboot by entering command "adb reboot bootloader" then it reboots into CSC mode
    then I tried detecting it by command "fastboot devices" nothing shows
    I also tried directly flashing it. "fastboot flash recovery <name of twrp.img>"
    it just shows "<waiting for device>" then nothing happens
    PLEASE HELP thank you in advance
    Boot into fastboot mode (csc) , connect to pc, open device manager, check for any yellow triangle,(might show instead of Android fastboot driver) ,right click on it- update drivers- let me choose from installed drivers on these computer (something like that) - browse and choose drivers you already installed.If this doesn't work, download and install these drivers https://yadi.sk/d/AvRY3osQxSVQs

    1. I assume you already have android usb drivers and also Adb installed on your PC , if so move to the next step :
    2. download and install Asus flash tool (AFT) http://www.mediafire.com/file/ucbdh7bj91patpd/ASUS.Flash.Tool.v1.0.0.34.zip
    3. Download Asus RAW firmware 13.8.26.92 http://www.mediafire.com/file/2d4qxprvlkimovd/WW_ZC550KL(8916)-13.8.26.92_M3.1.42_Phone-user.raw.zip
    4. boot the device into flashboot mode (csc mode)
    5. open Asus flash tool and connect your device via usb cable to the PC , after connecting , the serial number of your device will appear in AFT .
    6. In AFT , go to the "model" option and choose "ZC550KL" from the dropdown menu
    7. also in AFT click a yellow button at the top (it opens the windows explorer) and browse for the Raw file you downloaded in step №3 (do not unpack)
    8. also in AFT , on the "WIPE DATA" option , tick the "YES" option
    9. now use you mouse to click or just highlight the serial number of your device that is being displayed in AFT and then click the "START" button.
    10. the flashing process will start , it might take up to 30-40 or less , when the process is finished , you'll see a SUCCESSFULLY displayed , but in some cases AFT might keep on running while in actual sense , the flashing process is already completed, just check if your device has rebooted , if it has , then just exit AFT.
