AnonD-313233, 08 Oct 2014What do you mean by previous update OTA and install 700mb update? Where can I get this 700mb u... moreThat's Asus' update fault.
That's why speaker sucks, so does camera flash, there's overheating of CPU, etc.
Because 1.15, 1.16 and 1.17 updates which fix all these issues are skipped.
Anyone with new phone, that hasn't updated anything yet, should go to Asus website, and in support and drivers find the full OS update for 22.214.171.124, and load that.
This full update contains all of the fixes of the previous OTA updates, it is a complete package.
Alternatively, you can download them all from here:
But please beware this folder only contains updates for WWE-Androis and WW SKU.
If you have a Chinese version, do NOT use these files.
Asus website on the other hand has all versions.
The 2 FOTA updates are incremental. They are not complete firmware and are only to be used if you have loaded full previous version.

Or download it from Asus website, Phone, Zenfone 5, Support, Downloads, Android.
Does anybody here experiencing forgetting saved wifi issue? I can't just deal with it because i have to ask for the admin here to put the password everyday.
Will kitkat update boost my speaker volume or the vibration, if not is their any other way to do so.
AnonD-302492, 08 Oct 2014flashed the rom many times,still no mobile data.apn errorAfter restoring,I just changed my Airtel sim with a reliance,which auto create apn and I got access to apn settings,manually create a Airtel apn on settings,didnt switch off,just reswap the reliance with Airtel and I am good to go.
I have not updated all apps,still getting nearly no problems aside apn settings before yesterday.When mobile data on,lockscreen(slide)unlocked automatically now.Remember I haven't updated my apps after restore,so that might be the cause.Battery is ok for me.No heating too after yesterday's update.
I bought the phone last Sep. 16, 2014, then on Oct 7 I cannot open it, but the day before I charge it and it took time to be fully charged. It's the same thing that happened to my buddy, we bought it in the same store. Hers was just a week.
The new OTA update 184.108.40.206 also do not fix the battery problem. It drains quite fast even with ultra power saving mode and battery doctor etc installed ....
