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...
  • DRM content is currently broken

Download CyanogenMod 14:
  1. Z00A/ZenFone 2 ZE551ML Download
  2. Z008/ZenFone 2 ZE550ML Download
Download TWRP Recovery:
  1. Z00A Download
  2. Z008 Download

Instructions:
  1. Unlock Bootloader!
  2. Download the zip(s).
  3. Install Appropriate FW base (STOCK MM 4.21.40.xx base is required) 
  4. Install a compatible Recovery
  5. Perform a NANDroid backup of your current ROM (Optional)
  6. Wipe data & cache partitions of your device (required when coming from stock!).
  7. Flash CyanogenMod.
  8. Optional: Install the Google Apps addon package. Open Gapps x86 7.1

Today ZenfoneBlog will share about Echoe Zen ROM v1. This ROM is developed by Friedrich420  at EchoeROM website Here. About Echoe Roms were released for the first time on July 21st 2013. Since then, flashaholics from around the world have adored the idea that Echoe stands for. Echoe has become a trademark of customization of the Samsung Flagship Android Phones. Since then, things have changed a lot and besides perhaps the most choice-packed roms, echoe has began offering an incredible collection of its own AEL Kernels. None of this would have been possible without the thousands of dedicated Echoe Fans and of course without all those beautiful people below who have been part of the Echoe Family at one point or another.

  • Unlocked more options in the volume panel (i.e. media volume bluetooth volume, etc)
  • Re- added the sound/volume bar back to the Power Menu

Android 6.0 Marshmallow plan for ASUS Smartphones



Android 6.0 "Marshmallow" is a version of the Android mobile operating system. First unveiled in May 2015 at Google I/O under the codename "Android 'M'", it was officially released in October 2015.

Marshmallow primarily focuses on improving the overall user experience of Lollipop, introducing a new permissions architecture, new APIs for contextual assistants (a feature notably leveraged by "Google Now On Tap"—a new capability of the Google Search app), a new power management system that reduces background activity when a device is not being physically handled, native support for fingerprint recognition and USB Type-C connectors, the ability to migrate data to a microSD card and use it as primary storage, as well as other internal changes.

Today on Zentalk, ASUS Official Forum announced ASUS Smartphones which get Android Marshmallow upgrade support.

Here the list:


Device Name Device Code
Asus Zenfone 2 FHD ZE551ML
Asus Zenfone 2 HD ZE550ML
Asus Zenfone Selfie ZD551KL
Asus Zenfone 2 Laser 5.5" ZE550KL
