If XYZ ROM has a feature you want, and we don’t include (or don’t want to include), feel free to use XYZ ROM, or build your own custom version of Oct-N.

Hey friends... I am back with a new tutorial and this is gonna be fun!!!...

Zenfone second generation and 3 rd generation devices are capable of awesome camera and you can really click photos like DSLR if you know the correct tips and tricks...

Before we begin we have to update ur Pixel Master camera app to latest version.. Then only you will see a M icon near by Camera Click Button..

To enter manual mode press on the M icon..

If you love photography and wish to grasp every inch of wisdom required to shoot a good picture? Here's a little catching up to do! We bring to you a series of Photography tutorials on ZenTalk! Starting with the Manual Mode, you won't regret taking down notes 

Before you begin, here's a little tip:

If you haven't updated the PixelMaster App yet, here's what you're missing out on: 

The Manual Mode icon 'M' could be seen resting right next to the camera shutter icon! You can now access the Manual Mode real quick!


Clicking on the 'M' Manual Mode icon, you should be able to view the highlighted portion which entails the following: Reset, Autofocus, Shutter Speed, ISO, EV and White Balance!


The article details each element (Autofocus, Shutter Speed, ISO, EV & White Balance) of the Manual Mode! To make it clear, the article is well demonstrated through images! 

Note: The Manual Mode does not end with the above listed functions but continues! Read through the below listed points to understand the same!

Click on the highlighted portion!


Having clicked on the same, you should be able to view the following camera manual optimization options!
This article covers the following Manual optimization options: Saturation, Contrast, Sharpness, Noise Reduction, Detail Enhancement & Backlight! 

Now that you've grasped in the the basics of the Manual mode, I'd like to introduce you to another two crucial elements under the Manual Mode. These include:

1. Guideline
2. Histogram

1. Guideline

Screenshot_2016-01-13-15-59-33 - Copy.jpg 
Guidelines, is a rather interesting concept! If you wish for a good frame, the Guideline option should be your best help! Let's find out how!

Screenshot_2016-01-13-17-52-28.jpg The highlighted points of intersection is what should be used to place your subject or object! You could place your subject at either of the points of intersections!

To understand this better, here's a small demo:

P_20150105_2342211.jpg If you look closely, I've use the point of intersection to position my subject (Minion toy)! This should help with good compositions

2. Histogram

Have you come across this and never been sure what to do with it? An important element, here's what is stands for:

Having switched on the Histogram option, you'll see a small little histogram figure on your screen when clicking a picture. 

PicMonkey Collage1.jpg 

Histograms sweking to the left would mean that your photo is underexposed!
PicMonkey Collage2.jpg 
Whereas histograms skewing to the right would mean that your photo is overexposed

PicMonkey Collage3.jpg 
Balanced Histogram would look like this!

I hope this tutorial will help you for further photography.. I will post More on Camera Optimization.. Keep connected and keep coming to my blog.. Post ur comments about this topic.

Lineage OS for Various Asus Devices with Download Link and Instructions..

Hey friends, Today I have another awesome post. This post will teach you to download and install Lineage os for your Asus Device..

Lineage OS is the Morden or NEW name of Cyanogen MOD. Few Days ago Project Cyanogen has been suspended so that this New project Lineage os comes up... We are lucky that they Have Released this OS for the devices below..

    1. Asus Zenfone 2 Laser Z00L 2gb version
    2. Asus Zenfone 2 720p Z008
    3. Asus Zenfone 2 1080p Z00A\
    4. Asus ZenPad 8.0 Z380KL
    5. Zenfone 2 laser / Selfie Z00T
So we have to install this OS on our device.. I will show you how to do so..

Download ROM:


  1. Install TWRP recovery (Search it on Google)
  2. Now Download Gapps (Search it on google)
  3. Put the Gapps on Sdcard
  4. Then Download the ROM and put the file SDcard (External Storage)
  5. Now boot into recovery Mode and choose Install and choose the Downloaded ROM package..
  6. Now wait for some time , It will load the OS
  7. Now install the Gapps as the same way you install the ROM
  8. Reboot Your phone.. 
  9. Done
Now you will see the OS will boot up and you will ready to play. The os is based on Android 7.1.1, I am using this from past 2 months but i didnt faced any issue.. Hope that you will successfully have a Clear picture of the steps i have performed... If you have any doubt then comment below..

Band Locking on Asus Zenfone 2 Laser Ze550KL. This Method will Pull Highspeed Internet in Every where...

Today we will learn about a new app that will help you to connect to a High speed Internet everywhere possible,,
In Order to Understand the APP uses P

The AAP based Knowledge:

Every Generation Signals IE: 2g,3g,4g Have some Channel or Frequency through which they cover the Network Range Area.. The characteristicts of signals or challels are like a way of transfering the deta.. The More the frequency the more the Data Transfer Rate..  But There is a Issue.. If the channel Frequency Increased then the Range of the Challen or Friquency cant cover larger area.. In Android OS There is a Default Function that  the mobile only connects to lower friquency because Low Frequency can travel More distance , But that will decrease the Internet speed..
So Basically we have to lock on a Frequency where we will get more Speed..
Below are the Bands that Asus Zenfone 2 Supports..

B1:   2100 ,
B3:   1800
B38: TDD 2600  
B40: TDD 2300
B41: TDD 2500

Those are with letter "B" are the band name and the Number you can see the frequency,,, I strongly recommend you to connect to B40 for Higher speed ( I personally experienced the speed upto 10 MBPS..

Now How to do it... ??

#NOTE: Your phone must be a Qualcom Chip set phone and also LTE must be Supported..

  1. Download This "Network Signal Guru APP" and install it on you phone..
  2. Your phone must be rooted
  3. then open the app and allow root access
  4. now click on 3 Dots on Right top side and then press on Band Locking..
  5. Now Tick the band you would like to use. for example we will use Band 40 for better speed and band 38 for better network covrage..
  6. Tick on band 40 and wait for a minute...
  7. Signals wll come and now you will see you have significance Speed Increased in this band locking method.. 
#NOTE: Its not the tutorial for extending JIO 1GB limit. Its just a tutorial to always connect to a fastest band so upto 1 GB the Internet speed will be more then 10 MBps.. This is the targer....

I hope guys you all have learned something from this post. I will be back with more Good Posts.. Stay tuned and if you have any thing to say then comment below i will try to answer your quries or you can have live chat with me...
