This is the reply I received from ASUS:
Quote:

Here is the bootloader http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/Zen...045.1507666740 for the ZenFone 5 (ZE620KL)

I am not able to locate one for the zenfone 5z (zs620kl).

1. Update your software image to V15.0616.1803.8_M3.5.11.16 or latest version
2. Before you download, install, and use the Unlock Device App you acknowledge and assume complete risk to the quality and performance of this App, including but not limited to the following: once you activate the App you will not be able to recover your ASUS product (“Original Product”) back to original locked conditions; the Original Product with the activated App will not be deemed the Original Product; the Revised Product will no longer be covered under the warranty of the Original Product; the software of Revised Product will no longer be deemed the software of the Original Product and can no longer receive ASUS software updates; your purchased digital content may also be affected.

You also acknowledge ASUS does not guarantee service satisfaction to any Revised Product, including events involving paid service requested by you to be performed to the Revised Product.
Furthermore, such repaired Revised Product will not be covered under the warranty of the Original Product; the software of the repaired Revised Product will not be deemed the software of the Original Product and will not receive ASUS software updates.
It is strongly advised that you avoid activating this App unless you fully understand and accept the risks that may arise.

Sorry its a little off topics.
I have 2 questions.
1. Did you test the maximum nits Brightness in manual mode with a light sensor, if yes Whats the max Brightness? Thanks
2. The Zenfone 4 LCD screen has A LOT of motion blur and smearing while web browsing et 2d Games like sonic and Mario Games. Do you see these problems on the Zenfone 5 LCD screen ? Thanks ( Note that my Sony XZ1, Huawei P10 Plus , Idol3, Nexus 5, LG G4 dont have this problem, only the Zenfone 4) im Very interested to Buy a ASUS Zenfone 5 and root it
