My phone is Asus Zenfone 2 (ZE551ML, Z00AD).
As described in another question, I was unsuccessfully trying to unlock my bootloader. In the process, I also lost the stock recovery.
I learned how to flash stock recovery to repair it.
My firmware version is WW-22.214.171.124. I haven't been able to find the stock recovery file for that exact firmware version. However, I have been able to get a hold of the WW-126.96.36.199 stock recovery file. I was told on XDA-Developers that this would be fine, so I flashed it via Fastboot.
It seems to be working, although I haven't tried to actually flash firmware through adb yet.
I'm now unsure of which firmware to flash through adb, WW-188.8.131.52 or WW-184.108.40.206.
I have two conflicting ideas.
On the one hand:
- Since the recovery file I flashed with fastboot was 196, then perhaps I should also flash the 196 firmware file?
- If I flash the 198 file, perhaps it will also restore the 198 stock recovery? In that case, perhaps I can just flash the 198 firmware?
