Why do you need to unlock the bootloader just for rooting? The default bootloader allows flashing a zip and adb access -- the issue is that I cannot find image files with rooted /system/bin/su - any help?

I found a tool called SRS Root that you could try. I don't know if it works though because I have no intention to root my phone.

I Tried Bro, But that's failed... Cmon, Different Solutions Please
I tried that tool aswell, it says "Rooting completed" but the device isn't rooted at all.
Got this message aswell
Code:
Getting OffSets.. : error: only position independent executables (PIE) are supported. (False)

Anyway wanted to root only to bypass dun check from vodafone, apparently didn't need to have root permissions.

Is anyone here compiling TWRP recovery for this phone? As I understand it, TRWP is open source and up to the individual to instigate. I have never compiled before. Had a few days of coding classes for web design... But I am willing to do the work if I can. I did not buy this phone for the ZenUI... it has much potential, yes. Anyone here able to give me tips on how to start this process? I want to do the work, just dont know how.

Alright, great to see there is demand. Thanks for the nods guys. I will be working on compiling TRWP for OmniROM during the mornings PST, until noon. Right now work means researching what it is I am actually doing, L! So far reading up on the AOSP site and OmniROM wiki and will follow the TWRP guide posted here on XDA. I will update here in a week with my progress. If I think I can do it, I will start a thread on XDA to follow and a GIT repo.

I think all I will really need is the device information to plug in to an existing tree. So thats the angle Im taking, if theres any tips please pass em on!

Thanks again!

Crikey! This is not for the faint of brain. So, I hope you all realize how noob I am. This is going to take me some time. I cannot just pipe info into a file, here. I need to understand what the file is, what I am piping - because this device is obscure, no one has made this easy yet. I only managed about 5 hrs of research time this past week. But focused I was and now realise that in ordrr to do this I have to start a build environment and work with aosp, to know what I am doing. Step by step.

Sorry its going to take a while! Hopefully will get a good hard day in this week on top of my mornings.

What I am endevouring to understand:

- what is a flag? how to I make on?
- what is a make file?
- how to get device tree out of firmware file
- what exactly I do after porting and flagging and making
- how to do this right - so that it works with omnirom I hope to compile as well.

    idiots guide, how to root zenfone 3 laser for dummies

    my zenfone 3 POS! (laser) is now rooted, here is how i did it
    I have a z01bdc with android v7, results may vary with other devices. I am a nube and this is the first phone ive rooted. I wanted to make this guide to save someone the headache I delt with while trying to figure it out. Please understand that this is an unofficial guide. Try at your own risk.
    1-in phone settings, go to security and turn on "unknown sources". then, also from settings, go to "about phone" then "software info", once there, tap build number several times until the phone gives you a message that your a developer. then go back to settings, and find "developer options" here you will see a "usb debugging" setting. turn this on.
    2-with your zenfone, go to: asus.com/Phone/ZenFone-3-Laser-ZC551KL/HelpDesk_Download/ under utility, find and download/install the bootloader unlocking tool.
    3-run the unlocker tool, keep in mind that it will do a factory reset, and all data will be lost. (backup files/pics/etc as needed) during the process, you will get a message that says " You do not have pin password to verify device, do you still want to unlock your device" tap yes
    4-once completed, you will need to download a couple files. the twrp: https://depositfiles.com/files/ux8w5thp6 and supersu v 2.82:https://www.google.com/amp/s/forum.xda-developers.com/apps/supersu/v2-64-2-66-supersu-mode-t3286120/amp/ *the idiots guide has been revised! Use magisk instead or refer to the "evolved" revision on page 7 reply#70, all other steps are the same until further notice * move both files to the phones internal storage so they can be easily found.
    5- with a pc, go to: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho....php?t=2588979 just follow the steps on that thread and then after it is installed, the location where you have saved your twrp.img file you need to go to that folder and hold shift+right click on any empty space inside that folder of which you have saved twrp img and a context menu will come up with various options so select 'open command window here' then all you have to do is enable debugging on your asus zenphone 3 laser and then connect it to your pc and allow debugging on the device a menu will pop up, then inside the command window type "adb reboot bootloader" (remove quotations) then hit enter your phone will reboot to bootloader.
    Next step is to type "fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.1.1.unofficial.img" (remove quotations) hit enter
    6- now, using volume rockers on your phone to navigate and lock button as select, select recovery and wait
    7- once the twrp loads, put in you devices lock pin, and continue to main menu. once there, select install, then look for the supersu .zip file (if you dont see it, look for a button that says "zip file" at botton right
    8- done, please follow the instructions above at your own risk, im a nube.

    How to root the Zenfone 3 Laser ZC551kl ?
    It is still not possible, first you need to unlock the bootloader and for this we have to wait for the unlock app ... if they will release it.

    Sent from my ASUS_Z01BD using XDA Labs
