@Latstyle oh yes ;)
I’ve heard rumors that the firmwares are renamed with the release of Flyme 5. ( what’s likely to be just a ruomour)
The international firmware will be called the global firmware, maybe.
I hope Meizu does it like Xiaomi and stops to limit certain firmwares for specific phone models.
@Ultrametric and funny thing that difference between Chinese and International device is just ONE number somewhere in files.
cant remember it was M1 Note or m2 Note… 1st device where they did find those restriction codes… so you can now simply Hex edit one file where you need to change 2 digits and that is… your device becomes International and accepts Int firmware without any problems.
i doubt they do smth like that… remember they promised to officially release Ubuntu for MX4 and instructions… did they made it? didnt seen any news about that and its soon will be a year after they promised…
latest news i heard today is that they made huge profit this year… 2014 they sold 4.4 mil devices - this year its 20 mil devices
Yup that about the digits is true.
Once rooted type the following in an Android Terminal, and you’ll see your current device ID
cat / dev / block / mmcblk0p3
For the MX5, for example, one has to change the device ID from 0h57501001 to 0h57551001, which enables the flashing of international firmware.
They already changed i-roms to global roms on their Indian site. http://www.flymeos.com/firmware.html Which makes it more logical for Indian users. However, I think the ones on the ‘‘English’’ site will stay i because international users won’t use an Indian rom anyway.
@mx4pro I don’t get Meizu either! Pretends that they care about global customers but then let em wait for months.
It could be that Flyme 5 is release earlier, someone with the nick @Daniele-Canale posted this link from the Italian meizu forum: http://forum.meizu.it/index.php?/topic/1996-ufficiale-versioni-flyme-5-globale-cinese-indiana/
