I'm stuck on version 438

edited June 2021 in ZenFone Max Pro Series

  1. Zenfone Max pro m1
  2. No root
  3. 438

Currently version 438 is installed but I'm not satisfied. I want to downgrade for example 429. But it doesn't work. What is the solution. Please help.


  • First you have to Downgrade to Android 9.

    Take full backup.. all data stored on phone will be deleted in this process.

    There is an image available on official website named " Version MaxProM1_downgrade_to_9 "

    Store it on sd card

    Boot to recovery ( switch off phone, press " Volume down + Power " )

    Choose apply update from sd card.

    Choose downloaded file.

    You will be downgrade to Android pie 60 version...

    Now upgrade it to any beta version like you did with 438 version.
