[TUTORIAL] From Ubuntu Touch or Cyanongen To Flyme
Meizu MX4

You are full of Ubuntu Touch or Cyanogen?

You can flash Flyme, without lost unlocking and nothing! :)

You have an “A” version of MX4? Not problem, after flashing cyanogen you can do what you want!!

You need only:

START:

  • Download system.img , boot.img Philz and SuperSU from the link
  • Put the files on desktop
  • Enable "developer options "
  • Open an terminal on desktop
  • Write: adb reboot-bootloader
  • When the phone is in fastboot write: fastboot devices
  • If give : XXXXXXXXXXXXX fastboot (the drivers are ok)
  • Write on terminal: fastboot flash system (don’t do “enter” but move the system.img on the terminal, now you can do enter)
    (This process need more time 5-10 min you can see the % of transfer on phone)
  • When system go, don’t reboot the phone, write in the same terminal: fastboot flash boot (don’t do “enter” but move the boot.img on the terminal, now you can do enter)
  • When boot go, write on the same terminal: fastboot flash recovery (and move philz-mx4 on terminal and to enter)
  • When recovery go, turn off the phone and turn on with : VOLUME UP + POWER
  • When is in recovery go to: install from zip, sideload. Open a terminal on your pc and write: adb sideload (and move supersu.zip on terminal and enter)
  • When SuperSu is flashed: adb reboot

WARNING! DON’T UPGRADE THE PHONE FROM MEIZU UPGRADER!! FULL BRICK !!INSTALL CCLEANER AND DELETE THE UPGRADER OF MEIZU FROM SYSTEM APP !!

Remember, you don’t need Meizu account you have a real ROOT!!!
If google play don’t turn on, is ok just reboot 1-2 times (the same for adaway and others program)

Do not make me lock this guide again please.
I do not want to be reponsible for bricked devices…

Meizu MX4

LOL phone can’t be bricked! ahahahahah

Admin

@Naphtha and how do you explain that some people couldn’t boot their devices anymore, no matter what they did?

You maybe should check up the definition of a hard, semi and softbrick.

0_1446890420267_01.JPG You change system, boot. Others are the same. You can’t brick the phone.

The only way to brick is to forget boot.img flashing or flashing boot.img from another update.zip than system.img, but it could be fixed in 2 seconds by fastboot :)

@lguzzon

Ok but you haven’t flashed only system.img and boot.img because the logo aren’t Ubuntu Logo. ;)

You need to reflash ubuntu and flash only system.img and boot.img from fastboot ;)
