download this apk and follow instructions to unlock bootloader
https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/ZenFone/ZE620KL/AsusLauncher_5.0.1.70_190801_generic.apk

you need to install twrp via fastboot . And download image from here.

I had successfully unlocked the bootloader and installed TWRP. After flashing the latest build the device is encrypted and asks for a password every time I reboot the device & when I open the TWRP it also asks for a password to decrypt. So is there any way to remove the encryption?

You can use your screen lock to decrypt the data, if it still doesn't work, format the data partition and flash magisk before first boot.

Format data or use unofficial twrp

I will try this as soon as possible: has the wifi reception, by any chance, been improved compared to stock rom? IRRC back in the days there was the "radio" part of the software that could be modded.

I got a new X00PD (ZB555) and I wanted to try putting this rom on it out of the box. I have done:

1) Unlocked bootloader via Asus apk
2) Booted into fastboot and flashed unofficial TWRP
3) Rebooted into TWRP.
4) Flashed twrp in twrp (I wasn't sure if this was needed or not)
5) Rebooted into recovery
6) Wiped dalvik, system, cache, data
7) Flashed Pixel Experience. TWRP says it was successful.

Here is where I have a problem. On reboot its a boot loop.

I've tried flashing this rom now 4 times, keeps giving me a boot loop. I just booted into fastboot and reflashed TWRP and then tried to flash the rom from there, still boot loop.

I have questions:

1) Did I do things right?

2) Could the message on TWRP's site have something to do with this "This device uses dm-verity! This means that swiping to allow system modifications will prevent you from being able to boot if you are using the stock kernel."? I never got a request to allow system modification.

3) Yikes, what do I do now?

Have you msn8917 or msm8937 variant

Uh oh, did not consider checking for that. Using 'getprop' in TWRP's terminal (had to search for this command), it says

[ro.board.platform]: [msm8937]

then it also says

[ro.boot.platformtype]: [msm8917]

Does that help or is that more confusing? Any other things I can do in fastboot or TWRP to produce better information?

Thank you so much for helping!

Edit: The exact model number of this phone is: ZB555KL-4G151TW but I can't find reference to this exact model number with websearches.

Edit2: On your Lingeage OS page it says to flash FIRMWARE-ASUS_X00P-WW-16.00.1906.411-user.zip. I never did this, should I do this for this rom too? Is it safe to flash a stock rom after putting on TWRP (I was about to try your ROM but wasn't sure if I could flash this stock firmware))? Thanks again!

    Have the same problem with boot loops on MSM8917 device.
    Did you find any way to fix it?

    Nope and no help on any of the threads I posted in here but Reddit was at least a little more helpful. I was able to downgrade the android 10 beta stock rom back to android 9 stable and then root it and run Magisk with help from there.

    It seems this forum is not setup to help people, more to just promote dev work. However, if you also want stock pie rom rooted, let me know and I will help you.
