Steps taken:
  • Bought Zenfone 5 (A500_KL).
    It comes with all shitty Asus apps, so I decided to upgrade to Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and Root (to remove all Asus shit later).
  • OS upgrade went fine.
    I used official downloads (asus.com/Phone/ZenFone_5_A500KL/HelpDesk_Download).

  • When trying to Root phone (using this tutorial: ibtimes.co.uk/how-root-zenfone-5-android-5-0-lollipop-v3-23-40-52-one-click-tool-1505424)
    I get this error:

    ' Rooting, please be patient ..
