Hii Guys, Please Read The Whole Thread

I'm Glad to Share my work with you all. This is port of TWRP for Max M2 from ASUS Nexus 7 3g
This is a First Build With minor Bugs.Max M2 Firmware has Forced Encryption so Each time you'll Wipe Data from TWRP It'll Again Become Encrypted. That's Why You Have to Flash Forced_encryption file.

Code:
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about this recovery
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
 *

Are you stuck at asus splash screen or twrp?
After entering
fastboot boot recovery.img

It stay stuck on booting and the phone remains in fastboot.

You can't apply OTA through TWRP
In some custom recoveries there are options to apply OTA via custom recovery. Example Red Wolf and PBRP for Zenfone Max Pro M2
