Manually Install Android 10 Beta OTA Update on Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 users got good news, the popular Stock Android smartphone from Asus now started receiving the official beta version of the latest Android 10 update. But, unfortunately, the update was not even stable after one year of internal testing. So, till now, the Asus Max Pro M1 users are waiting for the Android 10 update.

After waiting for more than a year after the initial beta release, we think that even in June 2021, Asus could not roll out the official update; hence, we don’t have to wait anymore and think about an alternative option.

However, if you want your Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 to run on the beta version of the Android 10 operating system, you can update manually without any tricks. The main highlight of the latest Android 10 update is the gesture-based navigation and the in-build dark mode.

Here we will look at how you can install the latest Android 10 Beta Update on your Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1.

  • Step 1: Download the full OTA update package from the official Asus website. You can download the update by clicking the link below. You can download the zip file either on your mobile or desktop.
  • Step 2: Once the file is downloaded, copy the file to the root of your SD card or the Internal memory. Better to copy the file to the SD card.
  • Step 3: After copying the file, you need to restart your device. Once the mobile got booted back, the system will automatically detect the update, and you will get a notification saying the update was detected.
  • Step 4: Click on the notification and update the device. It will take few minutes to complete the update, and after reboot, your Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 will be updated to the latest Android 10.

Note: The details here mentioned is about the beta version of Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1, which was released in December 2020. Asus was still lag behind in rolling out the stable version of Android 10.

Important things to remember before doing the update

It is noted that the latest update is still in beta version, and hence you may find some bugs or issues, however being a public beta version, it worth using.

But the most important thing here is before you start updating the device, please make sure you have removed the device lock settings like PIN, Password, Pattern, etc.

The update sometimes causes a device lock which in which you will not be able to unlock the device after the update. Here the case that we experience after the update.

We also update the device as mentioned above, however after reboot, the system asked the pattern which we used before, but after the Android 10 update, the pattern was gone or got some error in the system. So the device was unable to identify the pattern we used, and we got locked. So the only step here was to hard reset the device from the recovery menu. Then we freshly configured the system. And we lost all the data on the phone.

So, we highly recommend removing all the security lock on your phone before the update. Then, once the phone is booted back on the new OS, you can add your patter, PIN, password, etc.
