@ShadowOfDeth Yes we are talking about the lock screen password.
The same password is needed to unlock the Recovery.
Try it out. When you have a lock screen password active, enter the Recovery “Volume Up + Power” and select “clear data”, you are asked to enter the look screen password.
It’s really nice of you that you are trying to help him. But it would be a bit more useful if you try the stuff you tell him, out first :P
His options are:
- Rember his password
- Type 15 times a wrong lockscreen password, to get asked for the Flyme Password (of the logged in Account)
- Sent it back to Meizu.
- (Get a new mainboard, though I am assuming that this works. Didn’t try it. No guarantee for this point.)
@ShadowOfDeth Read what I wrote: If you want to help people, know what you are talking about! Or it’s no help at all!
Once agian: You can not update from Recovery without the lock screen password! Before you claim it works… another time, it takes just 5 minutes to check it out… take the time and try it yourself. Set a lock screen password, go to the recovery and hit update + clear data. You will be asked for the lock screen password. end of the story.
The idea behind is to make it impossible for people to steal a Meizu.
@Ultrametric don’t get all uppity with me, mate. I’m just telling you how it is with EVERY OTHER ANDROID PHONE EVER. So yeah don’t talk down to me ya little shit.
OP, just transfer an update.zip to the root of the phone via PC while it’s in recovery mode. Don’t listen to that little pipsqueak.
