How to Optimize ZenFone memory and performance

When you use your device, you may notice that some apps are running in the background. Under such situation, your device may encounter system lags with memory occupied, quick drain and consumption of battery power,or privacy exposure. Now no need to worry,we offer you Auto-start Manager, an ASUS-exclusive managing app that helps you manage your apps while giving the system its full potential with: performance optimization, battery power saving, more memory released, and privacy protection.

When you launch Auto-start Manager from the All Apps screen, you can see a list of apps currently used or running in the background. Tap DOWNLOADED or PRELOADED to display the list of downloaded and preloaded apps. To stop the app from consuming memory, simply slide Allow to the left to set the app to Deny. In addition, you can see how much memory you release from status bar at the bottom.

When you set an app to Deny, that app is denied of memory usage and stop its ability to run in the background. Setting an app to Deny will release the memory used by that app, allowing your device to respond quickly to commands. Saving more memory helps your device to minimize system lags and reduces power consumption.You can also view its memory use percentage with Auto-start Manager by tapping the information icon at right top corner.

Official CyanogenMod 14.1 Nightly Builds for ASUS ZenFone 2 (Z00A/Z008)

CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway. Today zenfoneblog will post about How to Flash CyanogenMod 14 for your ZenFone 2. Original Post from jrior001 on XDA Here.

What's Not Working/Bugs:
  • VIDEO ENCODER/DECODER ISSUES: This results in green lines on videos/pictures taken using the Intel HW encoder/decoder and other playback issues dependent on video formats. See the list below:
  • Snapchat: thin greeen line tends to appear on recorded videos for snapchat
  • Asus Pixelmaster Camera App: Super resolution mode does not work. Turning off "Optimizations" from settings clears up any green line issues.
  • Some video formats do not play as expected
  • FM Radio is unsupported.
  • audio is a little weird in Real Racing 3.
  • sim 2 cannot be disabled (this is true for all CM builds on non qualcomm hardware)
  • Other than Fugu (Nexus Player TV box) there are no Vendor released M x86/x86_64 builds in existance. You may experience some issues with GAPPS and some known apps not loading or working correctly. Below is a list of KNOWN apps that do not currently run on CM13 based x86 Zenfone 2 builds :
  • Ingress, Polaris Office, Chase Mobile, Showbox...
