Steps to download and install fastboot flash file




Now that you have met the requirements and prepared your device, you can proceed with the fastboot flash file method. Here are the steps you need to follow:


Download the latest stock firmware from official sources




The first step is to download the latest stock firmware for your Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 from the official sources. You can find the firmware files on the .


Make sure you download the correct firmware file for your device model and region. The firmware file name should look like this: UL-ASUS_X00T-WW-17.2017.2009.087-user.zip. The WW part indicates the region code, which can be different depending on your location. The X00T part indicates the device code name, which can be one of the supported models listed above.


Once you have downloaded the firmware file, save it to a folder on your PC where you can easily access it.


Extract the payload.bin file and convert it to .img files




The next step is to extract the payload.bin file from the firmware zip file and convert it to .img files that can be flashed using fastboot commands. To do this, you need a tool called payload dumper.


You can download the payload dumper tool from . It is a zip file that contains a folder named payload_dumper-win64. Extract the zip file and open the folder.


Now, copy the firmware zip file that you downloaded earlier and paste it into the payload_input folder inside the payload_dumper-win64 folder. Then, run the payload_dumper.exe file as administrator. This will start extracting the payload.bin file and converting it to .img files.


The process may take some time depending on your PC speed and the size of the firmware file. Once it is done, you will see a message saying \"Done\" in the command window. You can close the window and check the payload_output folder inside the payload_dumper-win64 folder. You should see several .img files such as boot.img, system.img, vendor.img, etc.


Boot your device into fastboot mode and connect it to your PC




The next step is to boot your device into fastboot mode and connect it to your PC using a USB cable. To do this, follow these steps:


  • Power off your device completely.



  • Press and hold Volume Down and Power buttons together until you see a screen with a green Android robot and a message saying \"FASTBOOT MODE\".



  • Release the buttons and connect your device to your PC using a USB cable.



  • Open a command prompt window on your PC and navigate to the folder where you have extracted the fastboot tool. You can download the fastboot tool from .



  • Type fastboot devices in the command prompt window and press Enter. You should see a list of devices connected in fastboot mode with their serial numbers.



  • If you see your device serial number, it means that your device is detected by fastboot. If not, make sure you have installed the correct drivers for your device and try again.



Flash the .img files using fastboot commands




The final step is to flash the .img files that you have extracted from the payload.bin file using fastboot commands. To do this, follow these steps:


  • Copy all the .img files from the payload_output folder inside the payload_dumper-win64 folder and paste them into the same folder where you have extracted the fastboot tool.

  • Type the following commands in the command prompt window one by one and press Enter after each command. Make sure you replace the filename with the actual name of the .img file.



  • fastboot flash boot filename.img



  • fastboot flash system filename.img
