Get root access on Global Firmware

All you have to do is, install the UserCenter.

I extracted the following apps from FlymeOS Test, using Titanium Backup.

Apps and Versions:

  • AppStore 5.0.16
  • Browser 3.2.0401
  • Themes 5.0.4
  • UserCenter 5.0.6

Link: Chinese Stock Flyme Apps

These files are on my private google drive. You may install these on YOUR OWN RISK.

Can I ask maybe a silly question…
If I install G with first way then I will have ota updates to my mx5.
When I"ll want to update a firmware without ota I just download it and then press install or I have to do something else again?
Cause if i just install it so simple there is no reason to keep the A version.


@Dartaholics if you used Methode one from @Abaggie 's guide. You can install the G Firmware from the recovery / updater app. (+clear data)

And if you do so, you get OTA updates on your G firmware.

( as long your phone isn’t rooted)

@Ultrametric I haven’t done anything yet…
I’m just thinking of going from A to G…
Although I’ve use titanium and I have freeze all unwanted Chinese apps i think is better to have official Global with google play preinstalled as system app and without all these Chinese bloatware.
Of course i will download center afterwards so I can have root access again.
Are you satisfied of going to G from A…?


@Dartaholics there is no Chinese bloatware! Most Apps are Flyme system Apps!

I’m not satisfied. A lot of important Apps were removed, like the Flyme account. And most languages are poorly translated.

But you can install the Flyme apps, yourself.

So it’s just a Chinese firmware with Google play store in the end :)

@taigila it’s gone, G had it. After installing the User Center, if I remember it right.

@Ultrametric said:

How do i unroot tho? I’m pretty sure just deleting the UserCenter won’t do the trick.

Outdated, usercenter apk not gaining root access.

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