How to Root ASUS ZenFone 2 Marshmallow (Systemless Root) + Xposed

Yesterday Android 6.0 Marshmallow for ASUS ZenFone 2 has arrived, for you who want to root your device you can use this method (Systemless Root).
Gaining root access on Android devices isn’t a new concept, but the way it is done has changed with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The new “systemless” root method can be a bit confusing at first, so we’re here to help make sense of it all, why you’d want it, and why this method is the best way to root an Android phone moving forward. Since Android 4.3, the “su” daemon—the process that handles requests for root access—has to run at startup, and it has to do so with enough permissions to effectively perform the tasks requested of it. This was traditionally accomplished by modifying files found on Android’s /system partition. But in the early days of Lollipop, there was no way to launch the su daemon at boot, so a modified boot image was used—this was effectively the introduction of the “systemless” root, named such because it doesn’t modify any files in the /system partition.

This root method basically not recommended for novice to operate, you can wait a simpler approach. DWYOR (Do it With Your Own Risks)

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
