Hey Guys. This guide will help you if
1. If Using Custom Rom and want to revert to latest stock rom.
2. If Stock Rom got corrupted or became laggy.
3. You want to reinstall stock rom.

Warning:
1. Method 1 require unlocked bootloader. If you want to unlock then go Here . Method 2 doesn't. Don't worry.
2. This will clean your phone just like new phone.
3. First read the post twice carefully then proceed.
4. ALL .bat FILES TO BE RUN IN FASTBOOT MODE ONLY, IF YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT FASTBOOT MODE THEN GOOGLE "HOW TO GET FASTBOOT MODE IN ASUS ZENFONE 2
5. I may change name of files in folder. Use common sense to identify them.

Pre-requisites:
1. Charge your phone atleast 60%.
2. Backup any important data you might not wanna loose to either sd card or usb drive or pc.
3. Copy the rom zip in the sd card of your phone. (The one with size in GB)
4. Android USB Driver should be installed already, if it is not then install all drivers in the "Drivers Folder".
5. Enable USB Debugging.
For that go to "Settings" ,Scroll to bottom goto "about", goto "Software Information", tap "Build number" upto 7 times or till it
says "You are a developer now". Then go to "Settings" you will find "Developer Options", open it and enable "USB Debugging"
4. Common sense, patience.

Download Link:
For Method 1
Click here Android Filehost
Download these folders: TWRP, STOCK RECOVERY, STOCK ROM, DRIVERS
For Method 2
https://forum.xda-developers.com/zen...ction-t3448966

Procedure:
METHOD 1
Step 1. Flash TWRP recovery if not installed by using "TWRP.bat" (Given in twrp folder) in fastboot mode or bootloader mode whatever you call it.
Step 2. Go to Twrp recovery then choose "wipe" then choose "Advance wipe" and tick everything except "SD card or external sd card". then swipe to wipe.
Step 3. Go to fastboot/bootloader mode and flash stock recovery running appropriate .bat file. It is given in "Stock Recovery" folder.
Step 4. When the command executes from the above step, Go to "recovery" by pressing volume down button, then press "power" button.
Step 5. You will see a dead android logo. Nothing else. Then go to stock recovery options.
If you don't know how then use following methods
Method 1:
When you see a dead android bot with an error press and hold power button, then (while holding power button) quickly press Vol up and release and then release power button..
Method 2:
Go to fastboot mode. Connect your device and open command prompt there. Then Type
Code:
fastboot erase cache
Step 6: You should see stock recovery options. Then choose "Update from sd card" and select the rom zip you pasted in SD card.
(If you don't have sd card, then paste rom in internal memory and don't tick "internal storage" in twrp in step 2) But micro
sd is preferable.
Step 7: Wait. Your phone may take 20-30 or more minutes. So leave it on charging.

METHOD 2

Step 1: Download and Install all drivers given in download folder. Download RAW firmware for your phone. See above in download links.
Step 2: Install "ASUS FLASH TOOL"
Step 3: Go to fastboot/bootloader mode on your phone. Run asus flash tool, select your phone model and browse for the raw firmware. Check wipe all data. And start the process.
Step 4: Wait for program to say successful. If it takes more than 30 minutes. Disconnect your phone and check phone if rom installed or not.
If this process does not work. Then switch methods.

FAQ

Sol. Make sure you have enabled USB Debugging (Not applicable for BL Unlocking and TWRP Flashing)

Thanks for suggestion. But the reasons​ are
First thing is stock raw image of latest version is very difficult to find.
Second thing sometime asus flash tool stops responding. So you have to wait again for 30 minutes. Also it doesn't show progress sometimes.

No offense meant. But the entire collection of raw files are here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho....php?t=3448966
As long as you have the correct drivers (which you need for your process too) the AFT will get the job done in one easy step.

I have the Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML with sound issues, (it's only when the phone rings that the speaker works) and I put it into recovery mode to wipe cache/data, but it got stuck while doing that and I forced it off. But now, it's stuck at the Asus Boot logo with the rotating icon underneath.
Please help!!!!
