I had the latest version of Flyme 5 installed. I downloaded version 4.5.7 and clicked in it to install, I fforgot to choose clear data, it installed the 4.5.7 but its just stuck in the spinning flyme/baloon screen. I can boot into recovery and when I choose clear data it asks for my screen lock password, the problem is when I press on a # it instantly says “wrong Passcode” so it wont take any of the numbers and I am just stuck there or the spinning icon i f I press restart at that screen.
@Latstyle he fixed it by going back to Flyme 5. (where he could enter the pw)
But as far as I know flyme 4.2 doesn’t give a fuck and just clears data. Is that right?
4.2 recovery not asking for PW yes. in theory by installing 4.2.8 over phone will end up in bootloop BUT recovery will be replaced… and thats what you need… after that you can flash 4.5.7 and use Clear Data… its not gonna ask for password.
iv seen its worked for a few people… its all related on how recovery of Flyme 4 and 5 store and read encrypted passwords. it was explained in details in Colby Leaked Flyme 5 version Thread and whole that guide i remember from there.
