unbuntu on meizu pro 5

Does anybody know whether it would be possible to install ubuntu on meizu pro 5 ?

Contributor

@abiruk Ubuntu requires an unlocked bootloader… the way I understand it, a fully unlocked.

So if you have a Pro 5 that fulfills these requirements, then the answer is yes.

No for the time, unless you have your bootloader unlocked

@abiruk I have a Mx5 with FlymeOS 5.6.2.16 G beta.

@Ultrametric
I meant : is it possible to unlock the bootloader on a meizu pro 5 flyme 4.5.4A ?
Is this site reliable ? http://www.unlock-bootloadere.xyz/2015/11/meizu-pro-5-7573.html

@abiruk I don’t think so. At least not right now.

That guide will only destroy your phone, with a 100% guarantee. Don’t fall for this scam.

@dankeogh It’s too early to tell.

Someone has to try it out. Right now we can only make up theories.

Meizu Pro 5

@Ultrametric Lots of people over at the XDA site have confirmed that this works on the international version ONLY.

@dankeogh That’s not the point.

It’s possible to change the ID. So every Pro 5 is now a Global Pro 5, if the owner wants it to be.

So that means every Pro 5 can unlock the bootloader.

But that’s now what I am talking about. I am talking about Ubuntu on a normal (global/chinese) Pro 5.

Do you get me? Or shall I try to explain myself better?
