Phone convert to international - Can someone with International version can share phone content
Meizu Pro 5

I’m pretty sure we can achieve the same hack than @Dysync with our PRO 5 :

So can someone grab the /dev/block/sda2 content of an international (ONLY) version and upload it so we can compare with mine ?

Using ADB or Terminal :

  • su
  • dd if=/dev/block/sda2 of=/sdcard/sda2.img
  • upload /sdcard/sda2.img here

Here is mine (Chinese)

True, actually it’s not clear what the “poc” binary does. So until then applying the method is risky

@Kikounet95 Yeah, i make my phone international using this tutorial and now i will unlock my bootloader

woow congratulation! Bootloader of Chinese version finally got unlocked.
Now we need custom recovery for our phone

It works! I did it and non I can use full Global firmware on my chinese Phone.

@Kikounet95 Can you or somebody else please confirm this and what it means? I want to try myself but until there is a well translated tutorial and confirmation that those with Chinese variants of the PRO5 that follow it can indeed unlock the bootloader, I’m a little scared I’ll do some very real damage to my phone.

@ShadowOfDeth I did it too…

So we with the Chinese PRO5 can install international firmwares AND unlock our bootloaders? Are there any good tutorials?

@ShadowOfDeth I followed the tutorial from the link above. Pretty simple… It also be done both ways. The only combo I didn’t try is unlocked bootloader + Chinese id

@Kikounet95 Well that seems like a bit of a waste. If I wanted to unlock the bootloader and install international firmware could I do it all from the phone using terminal emulator or would I need a PC?

@Kikounet95 , what Pro 5 you have? :)

@ShadowOfDeth you can do it with terminal :)

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