ridwan, 18 Sep 2014Thanks for your reply Tomazz. I have done every OTA update with all their WW firmware from asu... moreThat's the trouble - CU-ANDROID.
Basically this is the Chinese version of phone that comes with Chinese Android.
You will not be able to install the files off my server, as those are only for WWE-ANDROID.
The Chinese CU version is for greater China, where you'll probably find some applications in Chinese, and not the list of all languages available. But in WWE version every conceivable language is there, and all the apps are in English.
Normally you cannot install international SKU over a Chinese version of the phone.
i have downloaded the update from your link..extracted it and saved to my zf5 storage. but there is no triangle with ! on it appears..i updated my phone via OTA and its the latest..but i think just what you've said, it passed through the previous updates...what am i gonna do next?..how do i apply this complete firmware update?
i am planning to buy asus zenfone 5 but i read some feedback error code code x1291 and also heating problem, Android not upgrade..that is true?
Please help me ?

Please help us ?
I've been using the zenfone this past 3 weeks. Generally, the ZF5 is a fantastic device. But I have some problems regarding the USB OTG support. I have just updated my device to the latest firmware expecting it to support USB OTG but to my disappointment nothing happened when I inserted my USB. I did the hard reset as advised by the ASUS costumer service but still nothing happened. Anybody experiencing the same problem as mine?
hi guys, i have been using this phone since 2-3 weeks ad i must say that not a single problem i have triggered!...battery drains faster but...can be neglected! if u waiting for a good phone at best price this one is the actual one! grab it and enjoy ;)

Tomazz, 18 Sep 2014CU Android is the Chinese Universal version of the SKU.
It is intended for China, Taiwan, H... moreYes, you're right. Pretty big discounted one. I just realized it after getting my ZF5 replaced by the seller, still not the WW SKU but the TW one, but it's not rooted and can do OTA and can read & write in Korean, the inbuilt apps are not from 3rd party like fb, (eventough has some apps based on Mandarin), the back plate is also not a sticker but a logo, so no problem again. I probably mistaken because just saw the WW user written there not see the CU-Android under that.
back to these days, I downloaded the WW SKU, it can't be applied to my first ZF5 which is CU-Android, so it has to be the same SKU if you want to upgrade the firmware manually, my opinion.
The guy with the facebook app problem should have the same version as my first ZF5, or it might have rooted already by the supplier/anybody out there besides himself. It should be replaced.
