  1. Hi brother, your video is really simple, thanks for making. I have a query though. I have got Zenfone 5Z , on Android 10. It fell and I can't say if it is bricked, but it went on a boot loop, it worked till my home screen, then freezed and restarted, and so it went on and on. I hard resetted it through recovery mode, now its gets to the fresh startup part of phone, but i cant get beyond the select language and wifi option , and it restarts again. Basically still on bootloop. SO, I am thinking may be flashing any earlier STOCK ROM could help in this. PLEASE TELL ME IF THIS COULD WORK. FYI, I have never rooted my phone, always been on stock ROMs.

  2. i bricked my phone on factory reset after it was stuck on Asus logo and after your third command recovery mode is failed to open. it restarts with usb logo. Please help.

  3. Does this work for Zenfone selfie? I have the same problem but Normal boot is not showing up. But fast boot is.
    Will that work?
