Introduction/About

Quote:

This is just stock ww 6.5.27 deodexed rom, packed as ext4 system.img meant to be flash via fastboot, nothing fancy here.



Features:

Quote:

  • Based on stock ww 6.5.27.
  • Deodexed.
  • Zipaligned.
  • Init.d sysinit.
  • Zipalign and sqlite init.d script added.
  • Dalvik optimization in build.prop.
  • Busybox 1.22.0 applet installed in /system/xbin.
  • Adblocking hosts file.
  • Xposed framework fix. Can install/update xposed without bootloop/stuck on booting.
  • Accessing sdcard fix for thirdparty apps. Can read/write/modify data on sdcard.
  • Updated asus standalone app from playstore ie camera, calendar, messaging etc.
  • Debloated by removing app that can be install from playstore eg gmail, youtube, google plus, google music, google book, google magazine, google game, google hangouts, omlet chat etc. If u want them u can just install from playstore.
  • Probably other things i forgot to list here...



What Works:

Quote:

Everything in stock rom should work.



Bugs:

Quote:

  • Fc after first boot, just turn off/reboot again and everything should be fine.



Installation Instructions:

Quote:

  1. U need to already have updated to 6.5.27 stock rom either full flash or update ota.
  2. Because zenfone 4 got no custom recovery yet so this is meant to be flash from pc/laptop so u need to have pc/laptop.
  3. Backup your data eg contact, sms, calendar, photos etc.
  4. U need to install Intel android driver.
  5. U need to have adb and fastboot tool, can download from my link below. Just extract the archive, ADB_FASTBOOT.7z somehere in root of drive eg in C or D.
  6. Extract the rom, u will get system.img around 1gb in size. Put it in the same folder as adb and fastboot above.
  7. Boot phone into droidboot mode by pressing volume up+power button together.
  8. Connect phone via usb cable.
  9. Open the adb and fastboot tool folder and double click on OPEN.CMD. Windows terminal will open.
  10. Type in the terminal to erase cache
    Code:
    fastboot erase cache
    and press enter.
  11. Type in the terminal to erase data
    Code:
    fastboot erase data
    and press enter.
  12. Type in the terminal to erase system
    Code:
    fastboot erase system
    and press enter.
  13. Now to flash system, type in the terminal
    Code:
    fastboot flash system system.img
    and press enter. Flashing system would take around 10minutes.
  14. After success flash system, if u want root need to flash supersu. Download and put ASUS_ZENFONE_ROOT.zip in the adb and fastboot folder and type in terminal
    Code:
    fastboot flash update ASUS_ZENFONE_ROOT.zip
    and press enter. Phone will reboot automatically and will flash the root zip, then it will reboot again into system. First boot would take longer to generate dalvik etc.

what did u do anyway?
if u follow the instruction it should boot, and even its not booting then can always reflash to stock rom. this rom will only modify system partition.
boot, recovery, fastboot and all other partition wont be touched and can always recover back to stock rom.
