(Manually) Flashing Updates
Sometimes (often) an update will fail to install and reboot, and then the tablet will claim you're up to date when you check for updates. So you'll have to manually update yourself, and often, if only works if you start from .182, and flash each file in order. So here's how.
Thanks to @slayeralive for these instructions.

First things first, install your drivers if you haven't, and set up ADB. Use the files below if you have trouble.
Universal Naked Driver 0.73
Minimal ADB & Fastboot 1.1.3

Now make sure USB debugging is enabled on your tablet. Go to Settings > About tablet, and tap on Build Number about 8 times, I think, and you'll see a toast, "You are now a developer!" Back out once and you'll see Developer Options. Enter, and near the top you'll see an option for USB debugging, so check that box. Plug in your tablet to the PC, then open a command line interface (Hit Windows Key + R, then type in "cmd" and press enter). Type in "adb devices" and look at your tablet's screen for a prompt. Check the box and tap OK. Now press up and enter, and you'll see your tablet's serial number and the word "device" if you did it correctly. Now you're ready for the next part.

1. Root with ROOT ZenFone.
2. Turn on USB debugging if you haven't already (see above).
3. Download the ROM or update(s) and rename it update.zip and transfer it to your tablet. Or copy all files to the tablet and rename them as you go.
4. Download a file manager that has root access (such as ES File Explorer or Root Browser Lite).
5. Go to / (root) and manually copy your update.zip to the /data folder.
6. Download this command file and copy it to the /cache/recovery folder. This must be done every time, so leave a copy in your SD card.
7. Open ADB and type line by line (or copy and right-click/paste into the command line window):
NOTE: When you type in the "su" command for the first time, it will prompt for SuperSU access on your tablet. You must allow it or the following won't work!
Code:
adb shell
su
echo 'boot-recovery ' > /cache/recovery/command
echo '--update_package=/data/update.zip' >> /cache/recovery/command
echo '--wipe_cache' >> /cache/recovery/command
echo 'reboot' >> /cache/recovery/command
reboot recovery
The tablet will reboot and commence flashing the file.

If you are getting an error on update, then you will likely have to flash .182 first and go from there, flashing each OTA in order using the coded commands above every time.

you did something wrong. command file is just txt file , and echo command in terminal is used for writing text in txt files.try to copy command file and reboot to recovery from terminal emulator with reboot recovery command. I created this method mainly for unbricking read post

OMG, I can't believe I JUST found this thread.

I have two of these tablets that I use as wall-mounted controllers for HA. One of them accepted the OTA updates and I was able to get it to .201 and keep it rooted. The other one, no matter what I tried, would not pull down anything above the .182 it was running.

This post has EVERYTHING you need to go from whatever all the way to .201 quickly and very easily. I installed 15 Second ADB, the ASUS ADB drivers, and ran through all of the updates. This, my friends, is awesomesauce.

HUGE THANK YOU to @GuyInDogSuit, @plopingo, and @jerbear294!

It could. I have made that last year and end up with a bricked tablet...
I had to make a complete reset.
I made a few tries until I get it right and found out that using certain terminal apps don't allow spaces between commands whilst others do... Try commands without breaks if you're using a terminal app. Or try temp cwm to update all the updates at once.
