How to Root Asus Zenfone 5 KitKat

Root Zenfone 5 KitKat – The Asus Zenfone 5 is one of the devices with Android 4.4 KitKat running on it out of the box, the Zenfone 5 eliminates that hassle for you by letting you use the latest and the greatest version of Android right away (something other manufacturers could learn from).

While Android KitKat has everything you need to get your tasks done, there are those of us out there that demand a bit more than what they get with a stock ROM. If you’re one of those users, you might want to root Zenfone 5 KitKat.

Rooting Zenfone 5, aka gaining administrative rights, opens up opportunities for you to customize your device to a much greater extent than that of an unrooted device. Not only can you use root required apps to change some of the functionality (ability to remove bloatware is up there with one of the big apps that require root), you can even flash a custom recovery to install a custom ROM on your device and change the entire OS, UI, and more.
