ASUS Zenfone Selfie ZD551KL Unlock Bootloader Tool

What is a bootloader? At its most basic level, your Android smartphone is like a hard drive, made of up several partitions. One of those partitions holds the Android system files, another holds all the app data you accumulate (which is how you're usually able to update without losing all your stuff), and others to do more behind-the scenes stuff. 

Think of the bootloader as a security checkpoint for all those partitions. Because if you're able to swap out what's on those partitions, you're able to break things if you don't know what you're doing. Or, with a little hackery, you're able to run custom ROMs.

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
