First of all, the user has to unlock the bootloader of the device. After that he/she can install TWRP recovery on Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1. GCam 8.1 from BSG should work (either _ruler or _scan3d packages).
Even if you think that the software is a big plus, it still would be limited to what the manufacturer chooses to deliver. But if you really want to get past that and enhance the software experience by rooting the phone or install a custom ROM on it altogether. Below is step by step guide how you can install custom Rom on Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 with the help of CWM recovery.
- You’ll probably have to use GCam Go mods, not the regular GCam app.
- These builds not only give older devices a new lease on life but also give users the chance to experience Android 9 Pie on their devices.
- The reason that crDroid is pretty famous among the community because of its long list of exclusive features.
- This means that different smartphone variants can be easily rooted.
For a budget phone that’s not part of the Android One program, getting two Android platform updates is indeed great news. However, as the device owners would stock firmware ROM recall, this wasn’t totally unexpected at all. At the time of launch, Asus had promised to deliver two major Android updates including Android Q to the ZenFone Max Pro M1. The device received the first promised update in the form of Android 9.0 Pie back in April last year. And keeping its promise, Asus is now rolling out the second and final update to the device. Paranoid Android Quartz 4 starts rolling out with new features and support for popular devices, like the Redmi Note 7, Mi A2, and more. Every build is compiled to provide a stable android experience.
Also, for more updates on stuff like flashing, wallpapers, themes etc like our Facebook page. So, you have successfully installed and booted into TWRP. The next and final step is to root Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 using Magisk. Asus is not an Android OEM that has received due attention in the smartphone market. But with the new phone, the manufacturer finally seems to be digging in the right direction. The Zenfone Max Pro M1 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset, the same that you would have seen on the Redmi Note 5 Pro. Even the 5.99-inches FullView display ought to be similar, along with the screen-to-body ratio.
