Installation method
If you have installed 4.5.6 or Later meizu has patched the exploit and instalation is currently unavailable even with downgrading.

Downgrade/upgrade to flyme version with clear data
Root and install SuperSU
Download recovery apk and firmware and put both files into phones internal memory
Install recovery apk and launch, selectm button to unlock Bootloader (install simulated recovery), select button to boot into recovery and restart phone
This is unfinished guide, to install read this thread on xda

it’s wrong!! Don’t do it!! Brick phones!! -.-’’


@Naphtha Does it work on the normal MX4, I thought the exploit was only on the MX4 Ubuntu! Do you know more about it?

Meizu MX4

@Ultrametric Check my thread on modding bro!! We have it!! ;)

Just so everyone understands this thread is dedicated to the development of the rom and any modifications you do is at your own risk.

Meizu MX4

not all are able to understand this… the apk you have been posted can let brick a lot of devices…


Well now there are quite some warnings in the first post, if people ignore it… well well :(

In general I think some people don’t plan ahead before performing things. It’s not so bad in the Meizu community as modding is limited, but loads of MIUI people brick their phone or remove the stock recovery. Without thinking ahead and questioning them self simple things like: “Do I want to have this on my phone? Is it possible to revert it and go back to stock?”

In my opinion, for those people there is no help, no matter how often you warn em, they will ignore it.

Hello ! What a great job ! I bricked mt MX4 after having installed Flyme 4.5.4 and this rom simply resurrected my phone ! Great job ! However, cellular data doesn’t seem to work, I suppose it’s a matter of time…

Looks like your connection to Meizufans was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
