I used the SD fix for Kitkat

How do I grant permission to the Micro SD External Zenfone in Selfie?

In Zenfone 5 "Kitkat" would be this file:

=> platform.xml

Could you to edit the file?
Or is there alçgum application to do that and work on Lollipop for Selfie?

We do need a Zenfone Selfie forum, Zenfone Laser already got their own forum why not the Zenfone Selfie? I wouldn't mind even if it is just a sub forum, at least we have a place to discuss development for this phone.

I also fully agree with the Forum Establishment of Zenfone Selfie.
Acreditos all this Post also agree.

I still do not know how you can do or want it.

What does it take to create the Forum Zenfone Selfie?

If you can help us, we would be grateful.

wanted to build a version of TWRP for Asus ZD551KL (Zenfone Selfie), it uses the same snapdragon 615 present in Alcatel Idol 3 5.5", someone could help me ....

TWRP download for Alcatel Idol 3

Stock recovery and kernel, into common folder

zezinho crack

Very good this idea TWRP to ZD551KL.
Just as the Root to Rom 1:13, it helped a lot.
I thought of the idea of creation of a Forum for Zenfone Selfie, most still do not know how to do, had a member who responded and agreed to the idea.
I do not know how we can do this.
It would be great for all of us ..
Do not you think?
For the Zenfone Laser already have a Forum for him ..
And why not Selfie?

    Asus zenfone selfie is a fairly brilliant device for its price point. has amazing camera, decent budget specs and also a whooping 13mp selfie camera with dual-tone flash!

    but what bothers me the most is that my Asus Zenfone Selfie 32gb with 3gb ram is filled with bloatware around 1GB and even after uninstalling some of the thrid party apps, zenfone still has too many worthless apps. If only this has a vanilla stock android experience, this phone can easily give a decent competition to the One Plus 2.

    I know it is too soon to ask for a ROM but is there anyway that we can get a root for this device.
    unfortunately iam still stuck on unrooted WW_1.12.40.382_20150907 rom on my selfie. I am waiting for FOTA update to stock 1.13 and then to apply the shakalaka root because it seems that 1.13 root is more stable and less buggy than 1.12 root. i keep trying check update from phone but no new update is detected. on asus support website also the new 1.13 ver firmware is not showing. can anyone please help me?? do i need to first update to stock 1.13 and then apply root??? that will make my wait infinite :crying:

    can i flash the "1.13 slim" system.img files directly to my device if at present it has 1.12 rom?? experts please help.

    go to recovery wipe cache wipe data then
    go to fastboot mode then thru adb
    fLash slim rom 1.13 boot.img recovery.img system.img
    then reboot finish :)
    if you want to convert ota to image, you should read this:

    if you want to edit, just mount it as loop device like iso file.

    if you want to insert su, just extract SuperSU flashable file and research which file he place and replace.
    (your device is arm64)

    and the final, you may test bootloader will accept the image bigger than 256MB or not. (I meant flash it)
    if it's limited, you may need reverse engineering the bootloader and modify it to 3GB or greater.
    you can find the bootloader image in the lastest ota package, which will update the aboot partition.

    above is all info I can provide, and now, it's your turn.
    I am preparing my laptop with ubuntu 14 , I will continue persisting .....
    BootLoop Solution:

    To correct the problem , repeat the process using the original boot.img this at this link:


    To get into fastboot mode, remove the battery and turn the unit holding power + volume down .... when the ASUS logo disappear release the buttons.
