This is an unofficial port of the TWRP recovery for the Zenfone 3.
Thanks to @shakalaca for providing the base!

  • You tell me!

Asus stock rom and TWRP
If you want to use asus stock rom and TWRP together you may have to flash Magisk after installing TWRP. Not doing so may result in a bootloop: Users have reported that stock rom without Magisk doesn't boot when TWRP is installed.
This doesn't apply to custom roms.

Raw image is the avaliable download on asus site than I flash via adb? Correct?
No, the available download on asus site is the firmware zip.
The RAW image of the version you need WW_ZE520KL_14.2020.1712.85 is HERE.
1. Download and extract it.
2. Reboot your phone in fastboot mode.
3. Open command window inside the extracted folder and apply this command:
flashall_AFT WW_ZE520KL_14.2020.1712.85_M3.10.47.15_Phone-user.raw
Wait for flashing to complete then will reboot your phone and Done!
Now you are on full stock 14.2020.1712.85.

Same thing here! I can't install update UL-ASUS_Z012D-WW-14.2020.1712.85-user or UL-ASUS_Z012D-WW-15.0410.1712.31-user because of this error. I have downloaded again this files, but the error persist

Can you tell me how you do it? Please explain to me,,, thanks before bro
1. FLash the RAW file that you find it HERE ( flash instructions in my post #11 ). After flashing complete you will getback to full stock 14.2020.1712.85.
2. Check for update and you will notify for oreo update ( when you unofficially unlocked the BL ) OR Download the latest Delta OTA for Oreo 15.0410.1712.31 from this LINK ( when you officially unlocked the BL ) and copy it to your external SD card then reboot to stock recovery and apply update from sdcard, when completed you will be on stock oreo 15.0410.1712.31.
3. Flash twrp-3.2.1-Z017-2018xxxx.
4. Reboot now to twrp recovery and flash magisk 15.x.
5. Done.

    • Added my signing key for upcoming LineageOS and Advanced Kernel builds.
    • Added ZE552KL variant "Z012DC".
