I am using windows 7 for this work.

    Root & Custom Kernel For Zenfone 5 Kitkat WW2.21.40.44 (LATEST)

    howwwwwww please
    (if you have installed xposed framework or Lucky Patcher then you have to follow these steps before updating 2.21.40.44_xxxxxxxx_xxxx release-keys)
    for those who have xposed installed on Zenfone 5 the latest update will fail
    but here is the solution for that
    open the .zip package of firmware you have present on your Zenfone 5
    for example the UL-ASUS_T00F-ww-V2.21.40.30-user.zip
    open it using winrar and navigate to system/framework
    find the files

    1. core.odex
    2. core.jar
    3. services.jar
    4. services.odex

    drag them out on your desktop
    now copy them into your internal storage
    now use a file manager like ROOT EXPLORER and navigate to /system/framework
    delete the

    1. core.odex
    2. core.jar
    3. services.jar
    4. services.odex

    because these are patched by xposed framework and wont let the system to update
    now after deleting the patched files
    move the files

    1. core.odex
    2. core.jar
    3. services.jar
    4. services.odex

    files you dragged from zip package and pasted in your internal storage to the folder /system/framework and change the permission to like this rw-r--r-- permissions
    for all the four file(now you restored all the system actual files)
    now update it using OTA or by ADB SIDELOAD it wont give you any error
    i did this and i updated sucessfully

    Root again using V4 from this LINK
    And TADAAAA you've Rooted your latest KitKat Firmware.

    Thanks Syakalaca for this method :highfive:

    The Proccess CMD be like
    Code:
    '
    '
    ' Connect your ZenFone 5 with your computer and prepare to ROOT
    '
    ' !!! DO NOT DISCONNECT USB CABLE WHILE ROOTING !!!
