Even though our ASUS Zenfone Live L2 lacks in ROM development, fortunately it is not with custom recoveries. Beside TWRP, there are some custom recoveries apparently made available for this Android phone.
Licosha — Bored using TWRP recovery on your ASUS Zenfone Live? Then why not trying other recoveries! Not only because boring, you might want to try the others because one recovery has advantages and disadvantages over another.
For example I personally still loyal using TWRP recovery on my ASUS Zenfone Live L2 because it is more bugless and just simpler to me.
But TWRP has this strict rule following the rules inside the installer script when we are installing some ROM, zip, etc. The file shall not pass TWRP if it contains even one character not following the standard. So that’s when I started using Orange Fox recovery.
For me Orange Fox recovery has some bugs after wiping partitions, making installing something after it sometimes causing troubles on my ASUS Zenfone Live L2 (file is like not being installed, errors, etc.). But Orange Fox recovery has this advantages like igoring
build date, etc. when installing a ROM.
So for the time being while keeping my loyalty to TWRP, I also sometimes switched to Orange Fox for example when failed installing something because TWRP is so strict.
So if you want to try another custom recovery on your ASUS Zenfone Live L2, here are some I found made available for this phone below.
How to Install custom recovery for ASUS Zenfone Live
Using fastboot (image recovery /
- Bootloader unlocked.
- PC / computer.
We can install the custom recovery image by flashing the recovery’s
recovery.img file to the recovery partition from fastboot using PC help.
An easier method to do this is just by using the recovery installer script on this post: How to Install Custom Recovery (TWRP) for ASUS Zenfone Live L1/L2 Android Phone.
Just replace the
recovery.img file in that installer with the recovery image you want to install.
From custom recovery
- Custom recovery installed.
Well, if the custom recovery has been made as a zip install and you have a custom recovery installed, it is more easier. It’s more like overwriting than installing right? 😅
Just boot your ASUS Zenfone Live Android phone into recovery mode, choose
Install menu and select the custom recovery zip file.
Even if it’s not packed with the installer script (a
recovery.img), we can still install it, though the method may be different depend on the installed custom recovery. For example in TWRP we can choose the
Install image option to install a
.img file, while Orange Fox recovery can recognize automatically a
.img file. Just don’t forget to select
recovery partition as the target, not the others 😁.
