Zenfone 5 a500cg Kitkat : twrp, root, xposed

I’ve test it on kit kat 4.4.2 zenfone5 T00F/T00J – firmware


Extract and run root.bat, dont forget to enable usb debugging


Download TWRP2870-zenfone5-AUTOINSTALLER.zip and run Instal-TWRP.bat (automatic)

If not working you can do it manualy :

  • adb devices (if your device gets listed then you are good to go. Else troubleshoot)
  • adb reboot-bootloader
  • fastboot flash fastboot fastboot_unlocker.img
  • fastboot reboot-bootloader
  • fastboot flash dnx dnx_fwr_ctp_a500cg.bin
  • fastboot flash ifwi ifwi_ctp_a500cg_unlock.bin
  • fastboot reboot-bootloader
  • fastboot flash recovery TWRP-2870_Zenfone5.img
  • fastboot reboot-bootloader
  • fastboot reboot recovery or choose boot into recovery from the bootloader

  • extract that file and copy folder FIX XPOSED  and Xposed Installer (SDK 19).apk file to phone memory
  • Boot to recovery using adb reboot recover or open droidboot to flash (power+volume up key), Choose recovery ( using twrp )
  • choose the Mount button and put a check in the system “partition” box to mount it.
    Use the Advance button to open the File Manager.
  • Navigate to the newly created “FIX XPOSED” folder and choose the app_process file.
    Tap and Copy.
  • Navigate to the /system/bin/ folder and paste the app_process file there
  • While still in File Manager, navigate back to the “FIX XPOSED” folder, select the libandroid_runtime.so file, tap Copy. Navigate to the /system/lib/ folder and paste the libandroid_runtime.so file there.
  • Dont forget to change permission chmod 755 app_process and  libandroid_runtime.so , or your phone will stuck in logo!
  • Now reboot the device. Xposed Installer (SDK 19).apk
    Your Xposed Framework is working again.
  • or you can use this modified installer… XposedInstaller_2.5-beta2 ASUS.apk
