How to root Firmware

Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that carriers and hardware manufacturers put on some devices.

Thus, rooting gives the ability (or permission) to alter or replace system applications and settings, run specialized applications ("apps") that require administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise inaccessible to a normal Android user.

If you need rooting this firmware, see Bartolab previous post How to Root and Unroot Zenfone 2,4,5,6 Kitkat and Lollipop.
