If you have a Zenfone Max Pro M1 then you can get Android 10 without waiting for official update from Asus. We advise doing this only if you are using it as a non-primary smartphone. The update can be downloaded from the XDA forum ( You will need to use a special TWRP version to flash it on your device. Users must also note that this TWRP cannot flash ROMs based on Android Pie. You will need to download a special Google Apps suite from a dedicated download page.
