@jaboos people reported that it’s not possible to switch from the firmware you are on right now to the Chinese “A”.
Try to downgrade to the previous International Firmware: https://meizufans.eu/forum/topic/2638/flyme-os-4-5-2-7-stable-mx5
And then upgrade, to Flyme 126.96.36.199A, report back please it it works.
@jaboos I can’t do much for you, my suggestion is to try some 4.5.x “A” firmwares and see how that goes. (Not the latest 4.5… try lower ones, as I have read that you might get stuck on "A"that way) try older A firmwares.
As I got the Chinese MX5 and didn’t run into the trouble, so try it and report back if something works.
Maybe someone else knows more about it and will respond. :)
Just an idea : try to downgrade to 4.5.Xi version, install the same version but in A using the tutorial in “General Chat” : Install international Flyme on China Mainland phone (or something like that) but with update.zip from 4.5.XA, then go to the settings to do a complete factory reset then try to go to recovery then install 5.X.X version :)
Hi, I have same problem with “Firmware corrupt” on my MX5 international (phone model M575H)
I fount in xda forum: “If u have TCCM phone so u can istall only “I”, FW noone from “A” beta versions can be installed.”
(http://forum.xda-developers.com/meizu-mx/help/firmware-corrupt-error-trying-to-t3219223) My phone happens to be supplied by TCCM
So I guess some of us are stuck on 188.8.131.52I…
@pete AOKP told me that TCCM was hired to ship for Meizu, it’s a tiny garage company. And not really competent.
You could try to contact TCCM and Meizu, and ask questions about it :).
Like who will care for the warranty, and does this device have support / warranty.
Why aren’t you able to install the Chinese firmware like on all other phones, what did they do to manipulate the boot-loader.
Is it a stock Meizu boot-loader, or did they manipulate it? Stuff like this.
Would be good to know for other forum members :) If you have the time please share it.
