+ For ZE520KL(Z017D) : enter command "fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.0.2-Z017D.img"
and wait for successfully notification
- Enter command : fastboot reboot reboot
- When your phone boot on screen of unlock bootloader, press volume up or down, then select Recovery

i guess my bootloader is still unlock, but i cant flash twrp.img like u show above...

do i have to re-unlock my bootloader and then follow ur tutorial

When you see ".....may not work properly", press volume up or down, select recovery, you will be in twrp recovery.
Connect phone with pc. Open window, then copy no verity file in micro sd card. Look at recovery on your phone, install tab, select storage, micro sd card, then install no verity

    This method works perfectly on my Zen 3 ZE552KL Nougart

    Hi Everybody!

    I would like to thanks everyone involved on building of this Rooting Method. I own this mobile about one week and tried to root it in such a hurry using the first Method I found here in https://forum.xda-developers.com/zenfone-3/help/guide-how-to-root-zenfone-3-ze552kl-t3471524 , but unfortunately it went wrong, I lost my SIM slots (both) and I got desperated! So I re-installed the Nougart Stock Rom.
    Today I followed this method step by step and despite what I did read here from many unsucessfull attempts I got it working like a charm and so THANK ALL OF YOU GUYS.

    I must share some important points that I experienced and think can drive into errors if not followed up!
    So:
    - Swipe modified system - I did that straight way... (system/data/dalvik)
    - Install > Select No verity file. Then select tab Reboot > Recovery. DO NOT MISS STEP, YOU PHONE WILL BE BOOTLOOP OR KEEP RED WARNING IN BOOTING - I just ticked the Reboot box selection before swipe to install... and I return back to TWRP Restore in the sequence....
    - Install > Select Supersu - The mobile re-started straight way and I return back to TWRP Restore in the sequence....
    - Install > Select Busy - The mobile re-started straight way and I return back to TWRP Restore in the sequence....
    - Install > Select Root - As this was the last step I simply reboot the mobile and waited.....
    The first start after had installed ROOT was quick and I just put my pattern to unlock and soon it re-start again automatically, and this second BOOT took a long time (~3-4 min) until a have the unlock screen appeared again....

    After unlock the mobile, the very known first installation screen showed up as if it was the first time I had switch the phone on!!!

    This process was normal as it was at the first I went through one week ago, but after the whole annoying process I faced my Mobile Zenfone 3 Android 7.0 Nourgart unlocked and rooted. Finally I was able to restore all my old applications from my previous Phone using Titanium Backup software!!!

    Thanks again! I've just finished this whole process two ours ago!
