AICP 12.1 for Zenfone MAX ZC550KL/Z010D


Pinoy Techie
AICP: Android Ice Cold Project is currently CM Based. Note: not yet tested by me.
Official XDA AICP Thread:

  • Must be on MM firmware vers 46 and up to unlock bootloader. (If on Lollipop follow the procedure here to flash MM Beta:
  • TWRP installed
  • Battery level 70% or greater.
(Refer to the Root MM in the pinned post for the TWRP flashing guide)

***Caution: Unlocking the bootloader, installing custom ROMs will void your warranty.***
***IMPORTANT: Do not install Xposed because AICP/CM14 Nougat does not support the Xposed Framework.***

Download the three files and save them on your memory card.
Make a complete backup first to have a restore point in case something goes wrong with the install.
Boot the phone into TWRP.
Click wipe, then advanced wipe.
Select all except memory card.
Go back to the main menu and click install.
Navigate to the SD card and select the ROM zip.

Boot the phone and complete the setup wizard.
Boot to TWRP.

Install GAPPS (Google Apps)

Boot the phone.
For succeeding updates, flash AICP without wiping, just wipe cache/dalvik, then boot the phone.
To activate root in AICP: Go to Settings, About Phone and click repeatedly on Build number until Developer Options is unlocked.

Go to Developer Options and click on Root Access then select Apps and ADB.
Flashing Updates: When flashing updates to AICP, there is no need to do a full wipe. Just clear cache / dalvik cache in TWRP’s advanced wipe.
