I have installed the test firmware (MX5). trying to install google installer but it is going to to loop once installation is triggered. again it is going in to downloading mode.
But i could able to install google apps, including google play services and Google play store.
Can you check this issue.

@navint how did you upgrade? Did you clear data when upgrading? From what version did you go to Flyme 5…A beta?

I have had no trouble getting play store to work, the way described in our F.A.Q. (I just got the google installer from the Meizu AppCenter)

I could able to install the google installer after deleting the Data. Now the new issue i have is, there is a folder( Other ) that is taking space from storage which is more than the system space.
System: 2.87
Pictures: 16.kb
Audios: 16kb
Videos: 8kb
Others: 1.16 GB
Did factory setting, and then when ever iam installing apps, the apps folder is getting filled along with this folder.
So total storage left is only 7.GB out of 16Gb (including for System)

Sorry forgot to mention, from to to, downloaded the update file, restarted in restore mode, selected system upgrade + Clear Data.

But Data is not getting cleared fully. Also Cannot wipe cache, how to do that?
Because when i restart in restore mode( Volume up + Start buttom ) , i get only two options.

The other folder is not getting cleared, and old data and app folders which are installed in previous firmware still existing.

Mod-Warning; YOU CAN EDIT YOUR POSTS! There is no need for a double post. Your next double post, I will just delete.

@navint This doesn’t help you, but you should have bought the 32GB.
Neither the 16GB of the MX4Pro, nor the 16GB of the MX5 is big enough, for daily use.
I got the 32GB MX5 and used up half of the space within a month. A 21MP camera just eats up a lot of space.

Did you try to fix it from the security app and “purify” your system?

So you mean to say that i have to live with the other folder issue permanently?
I tried doing purify, still when ever i install a app, the other folder keep taking more space.

In India Meizu released only 16GB mx5.


@navint Yeah I know, and it sucks! It’s a pity that Meizu sells a 16GB phone with a 20MP camera.

No, I don’t think that you have to live with it. It’s just hard to guess what it is.
My phones shows 3.12GB in others. But let’s not discuss this here, let’s create a different topic, to go into detail.

Post a screen and/or more information on your problem here please:

Dirac HD Sound in not available in this version of software. It was available in Can you let me know please


@navint We have a function called “Edit” please use it! I deleted your last post, as it was another double post.

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