I got /e/OS running successfully on my Asus Zenfone 8 I006D using the normal steps. I didn’t realize it was the wrong model number until I had already wiped my previous OS, so I decided continue with the /e/ installation and see what happened.
It seems that even the stock ROM installers directly from Asus see this model as the ZS590KS. When I was installing the Android 13 beta (it’s a long story), the first thing it did was recognize my I006D as the ZS590KS. This appears to be true with the other installers from Asus as well. Here’s a screenshot from my terminal output:
And one showing my model number and /e/ OS version:
Can we get this added to the list of officially supported models?
I’m happy to hear that /e/ installation finally worked out for you!
Im not sure how Asus’s model naming convention really works. However, also my phone reads I006D in the /e/ settings about, despite I specificity was buying the ZS590KS Model.
Looking here, all these models are listed under the Zen8 phone:
I have a 8GB/128GB version, may the 16GB/256GB reads differently in AOSP, /e/…
Interesting. I’ve got the 8GB/256GB version.
My previous phone (Galaxy S7) had an issue where the specific sub model wasn’t supported by /e/. They used a different SOC in it for some reason, and that affected compatibility. I’m glad to know the Zenfone 8 doesn’t seem to have that same issue.
