ATTENTION!
You MUST read all the guide BEFORE doing it, if you do it without reading all of it first you may ends up bricking your phone!

Prerequisites:
Asus ZE500KL (may work on ZE500KG, but haven't tested, do it on your own risk) on Marshmallow, NOT LOLLIPOP!
Also, it must have fully booted AT LEAST one time, otherwise, you'll soft-brick it.
If your phone is not on Marshmallow, you can use THIS guide instead
Download and put the unlocker zip file and the SuperSu zip file in the phone

How To:
1 - Install adb and fastboot driver (follow THIS guide)
Now you can connect the phone to your computer
2 - Reboot in fastboot mode with one of the following method:
a -Volume Up while booting up
b -With adb, after enabling USB debugging in developer settings, using:
Code:
 adb reboot bootloader
Now that you are in bootloader, you have to boot in TWRP,
download THIS recovery (is the twrp one) and boot in to it, using this command:

IMPORTANT: DON'T FLASH IT OR YOU WILL GET BOOTLOOP!!!
Code:
fastboot boot TWRP-x-x-x-x.img
(Obviusly the recovery name must be the one you downloaded)
IMPORTANT: DON'T FLASH IT OR YOU WILL GET BOOTLOOP!!!

It should automaticaly enter in recovery.
Now you MUST flash FIRST ZE500KL_BootloaderUnlock.zip, otherwise you'll brick your phone
Btw, the recovery will mount your phone's memory, so you can put now the files in the phone, if you forgot to do it before
AFTER you installed the unlocker zip, you can install the SuperSu zip

When the install is complete, clear the cache and reboot your phone, now you can enjoy your root!

So.. I'm thinking of buying a ZE500KL and I've been doing some reading on this phone on the forums.. did it really just get unlocked like yesterday? does that mean custom roms from now on?

I would recommend Z00L/T, you will get cm13, official unlock at least.

Working! Have you tried to flash Viper4Android? On lollipop this will break Call recording and FM Radio, maybe this will not be a problem on MM?

Inside TWRP there is a big "Install" button, press it and select the zip

until you saw the lock screen, that's what "booted".
