As makavelli mentioned above, a upload of the .204 has been found after i made a post on the zenfones subreddit. Ive downloaded it, but sadly it seems like its not recognized by the phone as a "legit" update (probably due to some files missing). I extracted it from a .tar to a .zip instead, put it back on the phones storage and removed my Google account (somehow needed for the phone to actually update). However it doesnt recognize it. Only thing i havent tried yet is to actually "flash" the boot.img but thats because im uncertain which files exactly i need to flash. Anyone know? Boot.img? dtbo.img? 

Ah I was you, 👍

That's not great news that it does not work. Maybe the file is not the correct location or SKU matching to ours?  Maybe the guy can try to dump the files again. I would not try to flash it manually as the chance to break or miss something is quite high. If I remember the boot.img is the kernel and the system.img is the firmware itself.  But vendor, recovery and such stuff also would need to be flashed.

But if you have luck with any method, please keep me posted. Will also try when I have time

I would really love to receive the beta version as somebody with massive problems on android 13. Registered and everything but to no avail. Long time zenfone user but I am not sure if I can justify to stick with the brand which I love as long as the firmware politics do not improve. And no Asus is not a small company that is no excuse 😄

Can anyone who is using android 14 beta since a week on Zenfone 9 share their experience in detail here?

Any major improvements? Visual, features or performance wise?
