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 magisk .zip file:https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/official-magisk-v7-universal-systemless-t3473445 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 magisk.zip file (if you dont see it, look for a button that says "zip file" at botton right
8- install it and ...done, please follow the instructions above at your own risk, im a nube.
Hi boys, sorry for my english. I can not understand a few things:
5: do I have to go to the folder where i saved twrp.img to my pc, or to the folder of the phones internal storage?
7: is the lock pin the sim's pin?
7: When i continue to the main menu, where i find "install" to select the magisk.zip file?
I do not have the courage to start, so I wanted to have the clear ideas from the beginning of everything I can find
Thank you very much:

Thank you very much:

1: go to the folder on your PC.
2: The lock pin should be your screen lock pin/pattern, only enter it if you've set one.
3:If you're talking about the TWRP main menu, then it should have a button saying "Install Zip" in the top left corner. Once you're in that menu, select the magisk.zip file where you've put it on your phone.

Let me know if you have more questions! And Good luck. :)

Now I am building the Rom from source. The port was from Redmi 3S which uses the same cpu with Zenfone 3 Laser. I successfully compiled the Resurrection Remix 5.8.4. But there is a problem with the kernel I think. To get over this problem I have to debug the Rom while booting. Tried some steps but till now no success. If I could debug the Rom that I built I could see where the problem is. Any help would be great.

I am trying to get the latest stock ROM from ASUS. When I try to manually install the latest stock ROM, the system ends up rebooting back to the current stock ROM.
I have an unlocked bootloader and root with Magisk.
I am assuming I have to go back to the stock recovery?
Does anyone know how I can get back to stock recovery or install the latest stock ROM?

Yes you have to have stock recovery. You'd have to find a stock recovery.img file and flash it but depending on what version of the recovery file you get though you'd have to download a few of the updates.
If you want to update to nougat you'd have to update to latest version of marshmallow and go from there.

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.

    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

    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!
