I bought myself a new Asus Zenfone 8 ZS590KS and want to install Lineage OS. It is sayed on the Lineage OS Site, that the modell is officially supported.
But I cannot find the Tool to unlock the Bootloader. It should be in the Drivers section to be downloaded. But I cannot find it there.
1. Where is the Tool and where can it be downloaded?
2. How can i unlock the bootloader as to install Lineage OS?
This is scummy if true. My phone broke due to either bad software (their fault) or bad hardware (their fault). After losing all of my data and being out of warranty by a month, I figure what the hell, may as well root it and install Lineage for *actual* updates and security support.
If I cannot unlock the bootloader this thing is a $700 paper weight. Seen other threads saying "offline for maintenance" since May. This is horrible communication, horrible customer service, and horrible policies if this is true and accurate info. Even though I own an Asus TUF 3080, as well as an Asus RAMPAGE V Extreme, I will unequivocally denounce Asus products to everyone I know if they choose to lock us out of our own devices.
