I tried V2.19.40.18 but with 3G continuos on in 5 hours 30 % battery drains.

I updated the kitkat through OTA and not manually.

Please help me to solve battery drain issue.

Tomazz, I want to factory restore my phone to somehow fix those error I have. Maybe it's just because I'm messing up much with my phone. How would be the restored phone? Just like a newly bought phone?

Guys,
Have any one tried 2.19.40.18. I think battery draining problem is some how controlled and now within the acceptable limit. after 2 hrs of update only i have loose 3% battery while mobile data is on with 3G and whatsapp is also active and other SIM for voice calling is also ON. right now i am trying to full charge the battery for better observation. will update after 24 hrs observation. but right now i'm feeling great !

What do you with "safe"? if you are asking how is it, well, there are some bugs I encountered, some here said that they did't but that's what I have now. Battery in kitkat drains faster, but a battery fix update has been released. Somehow, battery was improved but not that much (for me, or maybe i mess too much with my phone). You can ask Tomazz for more information, he knows more than me. :)

Jana, 10 Oct 2014I updated kitkat. please send send battery fix update url. Here is the battery fix URL:

http://www.mega-networks.asia/ZenFone/ZenFone5_W­W_Firmware/FOTA_KitKat_Battery_Fix_2_19_40_18_WW­_500_0927_1003_20141003.zip

This is a FOTA only - meaning only a battery fix and you must have 2.19.40.9 already loaded.

It does NOT check what's installed and will brick your phone if you try to install it on any other version.

You might in some cases also need to reboot the phone for it to be detected. Or in some cases wait a few minutes...

Got my Zenfone 5 yesterday. Got a prompt for an update which brought Build number to 1.18.40.10. It was just a 20mb update. I am assuming the previous updates got skipped. Still haven't updated to Kitkat. Does UL-ASUS_T00F-WW-2.19.40.18-user on support.asus.com contain all the previous fixes or have they been skipped for good on my phone?

In none of these menu I am not able to see "Restore From Recovery"?
