Hello,
I have problems with my new zenfone 5 bought yesterday, like whatsapp has no access to contacts, spam from badabe and mobo and i cannnot update the fw to actual one. I'm really confused because it says there is a firmware version 1.96.40.50 on it. See screenshot below. btw i bought the phone in malaysia. Does somebody know how to get fw 1.18 running?
Thank you!

Ok no screenshot but here are all information:

Baseband version
1428_1.4.31.2_0717

Kernel version
3.4.43-188799-g16e645b

Build number
Asus_t00f_ww_user_1.96.40.50_2019731_6736
Release-keys


SOLUTION

I found it on a russian Site (here should be a link, but nevertheless thanks to the 4pda.ru forum)

Simply download the FW UL_ASUS_T00F_W​W_1_15_40_20_u​ser.zip, extract it and rename the extracted zip to UL-ASUS_T00F-CN-1.97.50.60-user.zip .. important is the CN. Then transfer it to your root directory and it will instantly be recognized as system update. Thats it. Hope I could help some.
