Hello guys I'm hoping i can get some help from someone who's more advanced than myself. I Have a asus ZE520KL which the boot loader was unlocked using asus unlock apk. I'm on the latest stock firmware, 8.0 without root. I was able to install twrp but i'm unable to access any zip files on internal storage or sd card, when i choose the folder it appears empty. I was attempting to install Magisk Manager and root. I'm now in a constant bootloop that boots to the recovery screen with the options to enter bootloader, recovery, or power off. Twrp did ask for a password during setup which i bypassed by hitting cancel there was also a message about allowing read only or allowing modifications to the partition, i tried read only and allow for partition changes but it made no difference. I've tried a factory reset and format data also. Is it possible that twrp is corrupted? If so what are my options? Can i reinstall twrp or do i need to flash stock firmware or recovery? I'm kinda stumped and would appreciate any help I've fallen back to an original Galaxy Nexus on slim rom that i can only use via wifi lol this sux.

I'm not sure about this, but the method I followed required the ROM to be flashed after unlocking the bootloader. It was a RAW file from ASUS itself. If you're going to re do the whole thing, you might as well flash a custom ROM. The one I'm using is pretty fast and stable. You also get Substratum support (if you're into that). Let us know anything so we can help :)

Did you root prior to 8.0 update? I never had root before, i followed another method using zenfone 3 one click tool kit which is supposed to work on android 8.0. From my understanding after installing twrp i was supposed to boot back in to twrp recovery and install magisk and root before booting in to system. The problem is while in twrp the folders that are in the internal storage with the magisk apk, as well as the ext sd card are showing empty. It seems to be an issue with twrp 3.2.3 finding the zip files or apk.

I unlocked the bootloader and rooted after the Oreo update. The XDA thread with the method I followed is now closed, but the same post is at the ZenTalk forums (with working links). As far as TWRP goes, I'm not having any issues. Have you tried to manually mount the partitions?

I'm not sure i know how to mount the partitions. I'm assuming at this point my only option to have this fixed asap is to flash the stock image. I've searched but i'm not sure what the best choice to flash the stock firmware is since i cant access zip files in twrp, can i do this with zenfone flash tool?

I'm rooting a ZC553KL with Android 8.1 (and the security patch on December 5th), is there any chance that this TWRP will work?
There is some instructions I can follow to do it or is not possible at the moment?
Thanks

Hi everybody.
Could someone tell me if this 3.2.3 Twrp works with my Zenfone Laser 3 ZC551KL ? (I'm on StockOREO+Magisk) .
I installed a "modded" 3.1.1 TWRP (rename .apk to .img in attachment).
It works okay but cannot Nandroid data partition (and another partition I forgot the name) after Oreo encrypted /data partition.
The Reason: That TWRP decrypt module needs to be updated/fixed to work with ZC551KL+OREO.

Thank you very much.

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

    What Works?
    • No major issues found

    What's broken?
    • 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.
