Hence, a couple days later I decided to format it and I came to know that there was no recovery installed and I was on the latest Asus Firmware which Android 5.0 LolliPop.
Therefore, I boot it in Fastboot mode and formatted it. I erased Cache, Data, UserData, and System without actually realizing that you can’t flash ROM again without recovery.
Then I keep on searching how to flash it without recovery or just by using fastboot. I can’t even flash it using Fastboot as it returned with some errors.
Fortunately, I got a solution which probably worked without a problem. I know there was no such good post about this issue.
