Install Android 10 immediately on Asus Zenfone 5Z: download and installation guide
Here are the steps to follow to immediately install Android 10 on Asus Zenfone 5Z.
In essence you will have to download the firmware image on PC or MAC, copy the file to the smartphone’s microSD and then install it by hand.
Please note that it will take about 30-35 minutes before the smartphone installs the new update.
You will NOT lose your files, but I recommend making a security backup before proceeding, just to feel comfortable.
Obviously remember to start this procedure with at least 50% of available battery power and do the whole thing assuming all the risks involved.
Finally, before proceeding make sure you own the ZS620KL with the latest firmware updates installed. Otherwise it is better to give up and wait for the arrival of the OTA.
At this point you must:
- download the firmware from the link below (version 100.04.44.67)
- copy it to the device’s microSD card
- enter recovery mode (with the smartphone turned off, volume DOWN + power button until the recovery menu appears)
- select the appropriate “apply update from microSD” option
- at this point the smartphone will restart and the update procedure will begin
