I just bought an Asus ROG ZS600KL 8G/512G phone and I would like to update to Android 9.

I am currently on Android 8.1.0 with security update from october 1st 2018. When I check a new update (as descibed in Asus's page), it tells me that my system is up to date when this is obviously not the case !

Here are some details about my configaration

Please tell us some basic information before asking for help

  1. Model Name: ROG phone ZS600KL 8G/512G - ASUS_Z01QD
  2. Firmware Version: build OPM1.171019.026.WW_phone-15.1618.1810.77
  3. Rooted or not: not rooted

Shall I use manual installation

I've seen here :

sorry, i can't post this asus link to download updates

that there are many updates available.

Please help.

Sincerley yours




  • Hi diouky666,

    Since your current version and the latest version are on different Android systems, to ensure normal update, we suggest that you manually update to the latest firmware version by following the order below:


    You may find & download the firmware file here:

    How to update firmware on my phone? | Official Support | ASUS Global

    We suggest that you backup your data before updating. Thank you and have a nice day 🙂

  • Thank You Y_ASUS.

    I've tried yesterday without success a manual installation but my mistake was to start from WW-16.0410.1910.91 or WW-16.0420.1912.16

    I've made what you suggested (WW-15.1630.1907.98>WW-16.0410.1910.91>WW-16.0420.1912.16) and now it works !

    Many thanks again and have a nice day

  • Hi pipa93,

    Please check if you've followed the steps in the article below:

    How to update firmware on my phone?

    If the problem still appears, please tell us your current version and the version you're trying to update to, and tell us in which step did the error appear.

    Thank you 🙂

  • Hi Ryan

    Thank you for your asking. Due to your firmware is now WW-15.1618.1810.77, please open your "Auto-download system update" and auto update to WW-15.1630.1907.98 by the following steps: Settings>System>System updates>3 points at the top-right row>Auto-download system update

    Then perform manual update to WW-16.0410.1910.91, and auto update to the Android 9 system you prefer. e,g. WW-16.0420.2003.24.

    ***If you desire to cross over the Android system, you will need to perform manual update, if you simply want to update your firmware system in the same Android, then auto update is a easier way to perform. Please note that once the update is completed, all data, apps, settings and personal information will be deleted. Kindly backup your data first.***
