How to Root ASUS Zenfone 2 (via CWM)

DWYOR, for ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE550ML/ZE551ML
Credit goes to the creator of the Zenfone 2 installer: @29y6145 Thread on XDA and to the maker of the original Intel temporary CWM: @social-design-concepts Thread on XDA

This is a temporary CWM with the primary purpose of flashing SuperSU onto your Asus Zenfone 2. It doesn't permanently replace recovery.
Note: Root with this method will cause OTA Update fail, so before update unroot first via SuperSU>Full Unroot



  1. Unzip the package
  2. Copy to the base of your SD card
  3. Enable USB debugging (Settings > Phone info > Tap build 7x > Back button > Developer options > USB debugging)
  4. If you don't already have ADB drivers installed, you may need to download and install them (most PCs have them already, but trying installing these if you're having trouble getting your PC to issue commands to the phone via USB)
  5. With your phone on, attach it to PC via USB
  6. Run 'cai_dat_CWM.bat' from the CWM package
  7. In the black command window that opens, type ACCEPT
  8. Type T4
  9. Phone will reboot into fastboot and you'll see commands being issued from the PC cmd window copying the temporary recovery
  10. You may see some funked up images on your display for a bit. Remove the USB cable and within 30 seconds should then see it booted into CWM
  11. Select install update
  12. Navigate to and install
