SailfishOS for ASUS Zenfone 5Z by VerdandiTeam


Warning: Flashing this may void your device’s warranty, lead
to data loss, hair loss, financial loss, privacy loss, security breaches, or other damage, and therefore
must be done entirely at your own risk. No one affiliated with this project is responsible for your
actions but yourself.

Not working:
  • Camera settings (front camera works but is not accessable)
  • bluetooth
  • calls are untested (earspeaker is most likely not working)
  • stereo (see above)
  • GPS is untested
  • modem in general is untested but should work (let me know)

This is gonna be bumpy road so watchout.
- first you need to have lineage 16.0 (not never, not custom rom) installed in slot a (yes this is requirement) and to make it harder my lineage's security patch is 2019-07-05 so kinda old and i'm not sure if it will work on latest 16.0 (please let me know)
- download rootfs
- wipe everything (you need to format data, not wipe, format. data NEEDS to be unencrypted)
- Install lineage 16.0 onto slot a (you can try booting it but remember to format data afterwards)
- flash twrp onto slot a (not b)
- Install rootfs (aka sailfish, it will flash kernel onto the same slot so you don't have to worry about switching slots)
- Boot
- Have fun

  • Initial public release


After bug occurs type in the terminal following commands:
devel-su dmesg
devel-su journalctl
and give me logs from there (do not paste it in the post! Use
devel-su will ask you for password, you can set it in developer tools.
