ASUS is probably consistent enough to stay connected to the community. Even now, when ASUS has released its newest smartphone, the Zenfone 9, ASUS doesn’t take long to share source code Kernel and also Tools to unlock the smartphone’s Bootloader.
Yes, by unlocking the bootloader, of course, it allows the developer community to root and modify the operating system on the device.

Moreover, ASUS Zenfone 9 itself does use a very thin UI that changes from the Stock version of Android 12. So the features that are presented are fairly minimal.
This can be an opportunity for the community to bring a variety of new features to the device using a custom OS.
But, still the same as the previous series, ASUS also warns that this smartphone with unlocked bootloader will void the device warranty. So, for those of you who want to try modifying the software on Zenfone 9, it’s at your own risk!
