Still no custom roms or kernels for this device?

So the phone has been in the market for quite a while, and I'm still impressed by the monstrous specs it provided, but I'm surprised to see that there are NO custom roms or kernels for this phone, even the TWRP builds from shakalaca seem old, so I'm afraid to try them out on the latest version. Even the rooting process is complicated as compared to other phones because of no custom recovery. If any developer is interested in making a custom kernel or rom for this devices, they can head over to the official ASUS' website and get the source from here, and I'm willing to do the beta testing if the results seem promising. So, anyone?

ROG Phone 1 was not very popular and it is literally dead today. ROG Phone II and III are much more popular, have better specs (Much better battery, which is needed) and a solid community with everything a modder wants/needs.

didn't u try any GSI rom? I believe this device is fully compatible.

I don't know about a GSI rom, sorry ? Anyways what are they and where can I find one? I think I've seen some websites that offer a custom rom for this phone and I think that they mentioned GSI, but the websites looked kinda shady to me and they were even providing a link for TWRP for the phone....

With the source code / kernel available on asuses website there is no stopping a custom Ron being baked . Bake one flash it and try :)

You can try Project Treble if you don't have the ability to build a rom yourself.
I have successfully installed Android 12 based LineageOS and CorvusOS on my zs600kl using Treble, and it seems to work find. Noted that I just do it for fun cause it's not my daily drive now, any bugs would be possible, but at least it can boot just fine.

Wrote a guide recently about installing gsi(Project Treble) on it. Hope this will help if anyone looking to install it!

    Indeed you're right, but still the phone was a flagship.... It's sad to see zero development for it today
