Vendor Firmware Collections for ASUS Zenfone Live L2

Vendor partition on Android 8.0 and above holds special codes related to the device hardware. ASUS Zenfone Live L2 has at least 3 official vendors: Oreo 8.0, Pie 9.0 and Q 10.


Licosha — Although ASUS Zenfone Live L2 is considered as low end Android phone, we must thank ASUS for at least gave this device Android OS updates up to Android 9 and 10 (beta release, though), so this phone three official vendors including with the stock 8.0.

So why must we need these vendors? Well for some months ago there are no custom ROM yet for ASUS Zenfone Live L2, so GSI is to go solution for me. GSI is kind of stock ROM in short, but excluding the vendor partition.

Yes we can get the vendors by installing the stock ROMs of ASUS Zenfone Live L2 itself, but it is more effective if we just installing the vendor only, to save us time and storage space.
