@aropop I have rooted m2 note and still I receive OTA updates for my phone. After updating the phone, it goes back to un-rooted condition but I can easily root it again by entering my flyme account. I’m not so sure about mx5 but I think it should be the same as mine.
How sure are you of this? I am tempted to root my MX5 running 188.8.131.52A however, I have avoided it as rooting usually stops OTA updates from installing properly as I have witnessed with my Galaxy S3. Can anyone else confirm that OTA updates will still work after rooting?
@hawx2012 I also wondered after I successfully updated my m2 note without having any error even though my phone is rooted. Once I thought that installing OTA updates on any rooted phone is impossible as I tried out and failed on my galaxy s5 and xperia z2. But this time, this is just unbelievable!! I wish Meizu to roll-out a new version (now is 4.5.4U), then I can make it sure and share to all of you. :)
@mx4pro what notifications did you perform with root?
Depending of what you did with your phone, upgrading a rooting phone, without clearing data could mess it up. As system settings could be not as it’s supposed to be. But this depends very much of what you did with your rooted phone.
@Alexkyaw Yes, I tried installing OTA update after I rooted my S3 but it would stop half way into the installation and reboot. So I thought the Meizu MX5 would be the same but it seems like it still updates OTA even after root has been applied according to you and @mx4pro.
@Ultrametric I would root my phone for applications purposes, I would not edit any system files or any of that sort as I know it can cause permanent system damage to the OS.
@hawx2012 No, you can mess around with system files it will not cause permanent damage. As long you don’t start to flash custom roms or try to flash fastboot things, you are fine.
And all you did is reversible by re-flashing the firmware with clearing data. This will un-root your phone and get rid of all previous system settings.
